The Taliban made it mandatory to wear the burqa in public places

Taliban decreed this Saturday the mandatory use of veil in public places for everyone women and girls in afghanistana measure that adds to a long list of restrictions on Afghan women since fundamentalists took control of the country in mid-August.

“Despite the fact that 99% of Afghan women already wear the hijab, the rest must also wear it, and there is no excuse for them,” said the almighty Ministry for Propagating Virtue and Preventing Vice in public order. The document clarifies that the hijab refers to all those items of clothing that cover the entire body, and that in this case, “the veil is the best version of it.”

The new order states that women “who work with the Islamic Emirate (as the Taliban call themselves) in the relevant departments and do not wear the hijab, they get fired from their jobs“, as well as “if the daughter or wife of a civil servant/official does not wear a hijab” will also be suspended.

In the event that Afghan women do not comply with this rule, the security forces will first go to inform the male guardian or family member, and if they continue to not comply, he will be called to testify, he may be “detained for three days” and “taken to court in accept your punishmentAs a last resort, the statement warns.

Afghan public figure Yalda Parvani told Agencia Efe that this imposition of women by fundamentalists is a way to “convince their combatants that they are doing Islamic government in Afghanistan, as they were promised during the war of the last 20 years.

“The hijab is our happiness and pride as Muslim women, but the Taliban government simply forces us to wear their special dress code,” she concluded.

Since the Taliban took power in mid-August, women’s rights have been curtailed by restrictions such as banning teenagers from school, gender segregation in public places, or a ban on traveling without a veil and accompanied by a male relative. on long journeys.

While the fundamentalists promised to respect the rights of Afghan women in order to achieve international recognition, the reality facing women in this country is increasingly one of the time of the first Taliban regime in 1996 and 2001.when they were chained to their homes, unable to study or work.

Behind many of these anti-women regulations is the all-powerful Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, an institution that came into existence under the first Taliban regime and disappeared with the US invasion, leaving Afghans with a bad memory for the next 20 years. With the return of the Taliban to power on August 15, the institute returned, settling in the current defunct Ministry of Women.
