Taliban urged to increase the number of “Jihadi Madrasas” in Panjshir

The head of the Taliban’s “Jihadi Madrassas” in Panjshir, Masihullah Musadiq, has claimed that thousands of students were “willing” to enrol in the madrassas across the province.

Meeting the Taliban’s Prime Minister, Mawlawi Abdul Kabir, in Kabul, Musaqid said that thousands had already joined.

According to a statement issued by Abdul Kabir’s office, Musaqid requested further investment in establishing more madrasas.

Some have raised concerns about the increase in the number of “jihadi madrasas” across Afghanistan as the breeding grounds for extremism.

Recently, the Taliban Supreme Leader, Hibatullah Akhunzada, approved 100,000 additional positions for madrassas across the country and urged people to enrol their children.
