Professors Denounce Taliban Decision to Ban Afghan Women From Higher Education

“fundamental ignorance of Islamic history and to their tribal ways of life in which women are clearly marginalized and expected to be subservient to men”

Here’s an idea. Maybe a coalition of progressive college students could go to Afghanistan to protest and demand this stop. That would go well, wouldn’t it?

The College Fix reports:

Scholars, global leaders denounce Taliban decision to bar women indefinitely from Afghan universities

Professors as well as prominent global authorities have condemned the Taliban’s recent decision to bar women indefinitely from colleges and universities in Afghanistan.

A professor at Kabul University in Afghanistan, Ismail Mashal, appeared to tear up his university diplomas in protest on local Afghan station Tolo TV, The Guardian reported December 28.

“If my sister and my mother can’t study, then I do not accept this education,” he said.

Asma Afsaruddin, a professor of Middle Eastern languages and cultures at Indiana University Bloomington, told The College Fix in an email that the “Taliban’s inexplicable aversion to women attending schools and universities should be attributed to their fundamental ignorance of Islamic history and to their tribal ways of life in which women are clearly marginalized and expected to be subservient to men.”

A spokesman for the Taliban ministry of higher education announced the decision banning women in a letter tweeted December 20.

“Based on [a] cabinet decision…education for women is suspended until further notice,” Hafiz Hashimi wrote in the announcement, translated by CBS News. “The decision should be implemented immediately.”

Afsaruddin told The College Fix in her December 22 email that the decision stands in contrast to other Muslim-majority countries.

“Elsewhere in the modern Muslim-majority world, large percentages of women attend colleges and universities and they are increasingly entering the white-collar professions, such as higher education, medicine, engineering, law, etc.,” said Afsaruddin (pictured).

When woke ultimately makes you retarded…

To live in such an ignorant world as this professor does, and then to be shocked when it turns out he knows nothing. Islam DEMANDS women be treated as lesser, period.

I’m didn’t follow that last bit. I am not getting how a bunch of men deciding to keep women out of schools and requiring they stay head covered in public is at odds with women being “marginalized” and “subservient to men.”

Could the good professor break this down for me in small words and short sentences, preferably in English? Thank you.

    *I* didn’t follow…

    Also, I don’t need help from the infernal machinery fat-fingering stuff. That I do well enough without help.

But those same professors just love Biden and the Dems…..

This statement proves Afsaruddin is a liar and Islamic propagandist. What the Taliban is doing is not ignorant, it’s precisely what Islam prescribes. Women are, after all, deficient in their intelligence and religion. So says Muhammad.
