The universities in Afghanistan began classes on Sep 6 with gender segregation under orders from the new regime of Taliban.
A picture one of the classes with segregation was shared by a TV journalist Azaz Syed on his Twitter.
Earlier in the day, The Taliban called for recognition of Afghanistan, saying the country “has the right” to be accepted while urging the international community to reopen their embassies in Kabul.
“The war has ended, the country is getting out of the crisis. It is now time for peace and reconstruction. We need the people to support us,” spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told a press conference in Kabul.
The Taliban spokesman added: “The [Afghan forces] who were trained in the past 20 years will be asked to rejoin the security departments alongside Taliban members.”
He said that any insurgency against their rule would be “hit hard”, after earlier saying they had captured the Panjshir Valley — the last pocket of resistance.
“Anyone who picks up arms and start another resistance, without any doubts, will be our enemy.
Three weeks after seizing power but with no government so far announced, the spokesman said an “interim” system would first be announced to allow for changes.
“Final decisions have been taken, we are now working on the technical issues,” he said.
“We will announce the new government as soon as the technical issues are resolved.” A key issue for the Taliban is the reopening of the airport in Kabul, which was the scene of a massive [US-led evacuation] plan that ended last week.
