The Islamic Emirate's second deputy prime minister, Abdul Salam Hanafi, said during the event introducing Neda Mohammad Nadim as the new acting minister of higher education that the nation's educational curriculum should be developed in accordance with international standards.
Hanafi said that no country will advance without education, in his remarks during a ceremony.
"We must work day and night to develop a curriculum that will address Afghanistan's needs and issues; those who graduate from this institution will serve as cadres for our nation,” Hanafi said.
During the ceremony, the newly appointed head of the Ministry of Higher Education said that the ministry would seek to develop a curriculum based on Islamic Sharia and in accordance with international norms.
"The Islamic Emirate's aim is not just to have a ministry; it is also the will of the Islamic Emirate that the Afghan children receive an education and that their capabilities improve," Nadim added.
"Religious requirements were not fulfilled by our educational institutions and the effect of the West on the youth was considerable,” said Abdul Baqi Haqqani, former minister of higher education.
According to Noorul Haq Anwar, chief of the Islamic Emirate's administrative office, hiring procedures used to be dictated by foreigners, but today there is transparency in the hiring process.
"The election of the Islamic Emirate is transparent, dependable, and standard; this is a win for the Afghan country,” Anwar said.
The curriculum for 40 faculties has already been approved, according to the information provided by the previous acting head of the Ministry of Higher Education, and this process will continue.
