The Taliban banned establishment of literacy classes in homes
the Ministry of Guidance, Hajj and Endowments of the Taliban emphasizes that male delegations can not visit female schools and female delegations can not visit male schools.
The Taliban's Ministry of Guidance, Hajj and Endowments has banned "establishment of educational circles in residential houses" by literacy institutes and banned adult women from teaching in "religious schools located in mosques."
The Taliban Ministry of Guidance, Hajj and Endowments recently announced this in a letter to a number of literacy institutes in Kabul and the provinces. The letter also emphasizes that girls and boys can not study in a mixed class.
The ministry has also banned teaching of "adult girls" by male teachers and adult boys by female teachers.
On the other hand, the letter of the Ministry of Guidance, Hajj and Endowments of the Taliban emphasizes that male delegations can not visit female schools and female delegations can not visit male schools.
In another letter, the ministry called on literacy and charitable organizations to refrain from distributing aid without consulting and involving the Taliban.
However, officials at literacy and philanthropic institutions say the move by the Taliban has posed serious challenges to their activities.
The director of one of the institutions told the daily Etilaat-e-Rooz that the Taliban consider girls over the age of eight to be adults, and that the group will ban girls from education under the group's orders to ban male teachers from teaching adult women.
He added that in most of the areas supported by the literacy institute, there are vital literacy classes in residential houses, and the Taliban's orders are blocking these classes.
After the Taliban took control of Afghanistan, girls above the sixth grade were barred from attending school. Also, public universities were not open to male and female students, and female employees were housed in government offices.
The Taliban's restrictions on girls' education and women's work have sparked widespread protests.
The Taliban have also imposed restrictions on women's social freedoms; Among other things, they must observe the hijab, and they must also accompany the "religious Muharram" on long journeys.
