Professor steps down after being charged with blasphemy

A professor at the Albironi University in Kapisa province claims that his fellow professors have accused him of ex-communication and blasphemy.

Yaqoob Yasna said that his colleagues are lecturers in the faculties of religious studies, agriculture, and education.

Yasna on his Facebook post said that he had criticized ethnic politics in Afghanistan but a professor in the faculty of religious studies and other professors accused him of being irreligious.

The university lecturer claimed that his colleagues and students accuse him of blasphemy but added that he has disrespected no religion.

This comes as 229 university lecturers from the top three universities in Afghanistan have left the country after the Taliban takeover on August 15 last year.

Officials at Albironi University and the Taliban have not commented on the issue yet.
