Taliban had recently announced their cabinet ministers and the coronation ceremony will be undertaken in the presence of foreign leaders including China and Russia. While the ceremony is about to happen , a senior Taliban leader comes up with a controversial statement that truly unveils the real motive of the newly formed Taliban administration. Taliban’s new education minister says that Phd and masters degree is not valuable and their mullahs are far ahead than such pundits and thus such kind of ideologies will prevail.
Education Is Useless
A new cabinet was unveiled Tuesday with world leaders left to wonder about future ties with the nation. “In the future, all matters of governance and life in Afghanistan will be regulated by the laws of the Holy Sharia,” Taliban supreme leader Haibatullah Akhundzada made it clear in his first public statement since the August 15 fall of Kabul.
A video widely shared on social media shows the Taliban’s Minister of Education, Sheikh Molvi Noorullah Munir, questioning the relevance of higher education. “No Phd degree, master’s degree is valuable today. You see that the Mullahs and Taliban that are in power, have no Phd, MA or even a high school degree, but are the greatest of all,” Sheikh Molvi Noorullah Munir is heard saying in the video. The remarks, as expected, drew huge criticism.

All Cabinet Ministers Are Born Criminals
In the Taliban’s new “interim government”, Mullah Mohammad Hassan, the little-known head of the Taliban’s leadership council, has been named as acting Prime Minister. UN-designated terrorist Sirajuddin Haqqani is the new acting Interior Minister in the 33-member cabinet that has no woman member.
Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar will be his deputy in the “new Islamic government”, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said at a news conference in Kabul. “As I speak today, the Taliban announced their government. It is anything but inclusive,” Afghanistan’s Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN Ghulam Isaczai said.
Twitter Shelved In Various Comments
“Why is this man talking about education,” said one Twitter user. “Minister of Higher education saying higher education is not worth it,” another user said.
Such shameful thoughts about education, having them in power is catastrophic especially for the youth & children and with such mentality it is clear Taliban is leading the country back to the stone age. God save the people!
