Afghan students protest ban on girls studying in universities

On Tuesday, a young protester demonstrated alone with a placard in front of the gates of the country’s main university. Along with that, male students also joined the protest.

The male students have announced that no student will go to class until the Taliban ban is lifted. In this regard, students are also campaigning vigorously using social media hashtags. News from One India.
