IRNA news agency on Tuesday claimed that Iran is intending to accept more female students from Afghanistan after Taliban restriction on women’s education in the country.
According to IRNA, Iran has five times increased the cash allocated to Tehran University for scholarships for Afghan students.
This will allow Iran to sponsor more Afghan students this year, particularly women students, according to a representative from Tehran University.
Tehran University currently has 470 Afghan students enrolled, with roughly a quarter of them being female.
The source said that more over half of these pupils are recipients of scholarships.
Iran declared that it is prepared to offer special facilities for Afghan women students after the Taliban closed universities for female students.
In Afghanistan, girls and women are mostly excluded from public life.
Iran is a Muslim nation as well, and it frequently receives criticism for its Islamic laws. In the Islamic Republic, women are systematically disadvantaged.
Iran has also drawn criticism from other countries for its ruthless suppression of nationwide protests, which were led by women.
The Islamic Republic has a modern education and higher education system, and the majority of enrolled students in Iran are women.
