An Afghan academic who caused a storm by quitting and tearing up his degree certificates on live television to protest the Taliban’s ban on women attending university has vowed to fight the order. Ismail Mashal, a lecturer in journalism for more than a decade at three universities in Kabul, shredded his qualifications and resigned from the institutions after the ban was issued last month.
