The Taliban have said that those who have graduated from high schools during the past twenty years in Afghanistan are of no use, reported local media.
During a meeting with the university lecturers in Kabul, the acting minister of the higher education of the Taliban, Abdul Baqi Haqqani, said that those who have graduated from high schools during the past twenty years are of no use. The minister is meant by the graduates who have studied during the non-Taliban era when they were fighting the US-backed governments of Hamid Karzai and Ashraf Ghani, according to TOLOnews.
Haqqani said that they must hire teachers who instill the students and incoming generations the values that are of use in the country and Afghanistan can utilize their talents in the future.
Showing a preference for religious studies, he emphasized that the Master’s and Ph.D. holders of modern studies are less valuable than those who have studied in madrasas and have religious studies in Afghanistan, reported TOLOnews.
For Afghanistan, 2000-2020 is believed to be one of the most important and rich eras when it comes to the level of education in the country.
