Mar 22, 2011 - 19:04

GHAZNI CITY (PANinfo-icon): Twenty-six schools, previously closed for security reasons, have reopened in southern Ghazni province, an educationinfo-icon official said on Tuesday.

The reopening allowed 20,000 students to resume their studies, the provincial education director, Husni Mubarak Azizi told a gathering of tribal elders in Ghazni city.

No school would be closed this year, he said.

The official said there had been problems in keeping some schools open in parts of the province, referring to threats posed by Talibaninfo-icon insurgents.

Governor Musa Khan Akbarzada urged tribal elders to convince parents to send their children to school and to cooperate with the government in its efforts to improve education. The governor also called on insurgents to avoid creating problems for students.

The Polish ambassador to Kabulinfo-icon, Maciej Lang, said if Prophet Mohammad had asked Muslims to adorn themselves with knowledge, why were hurdles placed in the way of people getting an education.

A tribal elder, Hazrat Mohammad, said education should be separated from politics. He called for equal attention to religious schools. Those preventing people from getting education were the enemies of the country, he added.
