The Taliban are getting their ducks in a row, so to speak. Setting things right with Islamic law. That’s how they plan to address the question of educating girls and women. In line with Islamic law, and since everyone is Muslim, they will understand.
The newly installed [Higher Education] minister … said that the subjects taught in universities will be reviewed. He told reporters that the Taliban wanted to “create a reasonable and Islamic curriculum that is in line with our Islamic, national and historical values and, on the other hand, be able to compete with other countries.”
Girls and women, he says, will be able to learn, but what is not exactly clear. Only Allah can now, I presume, but they will be required to wear hijab at a minimum. This is a significant change from their previous rule. Progressive even, but then there’s this.
The Taliban’s new government has also replaced the Women’s Affairs Ministry with the Ministry of Vice and Virtue.
The much feared department was responsible for deploying religious police to the streets to enforce Sharia law during the Taliban’s previous spell in power. It became known for beating women for infractions such as dressing immodestly and being outside without a male guardian.
One step forward, two steps back.
No word on what Girl Power Kamal Harris thinks about that or Biden Joe. Maybe they’ll say it’s got to do with more white people stepping up to be vaccinated and how that’s racist.
With these idiots, you never really know what nonsense might come next, only that it will.
