The real radical face of Taliban in Afghanistan is now coming to the fore. The Taliban, urging the world to be recognized, has banned women from traveling alone for long distances in buses or other vehicles. Not only this, the Taliban has also banned playing music in the car. The Taliban have also said that women will have to wear the hijab during the journey. The Taliban regime has taken this step at a time when it has already imposed several restrictions on the education of girls.
The Taliban have said in their new order that women will not be able to travel more than 70 km in a bus alone. To go beyond this, it would be necessary to have a male guardian with them. He said that single women traveling long distances should not be made to sit in the car. The Taliban claimed after coming to power that it had become progressive, but its orders show that there has been no change between the Taliban 20 years ago and the Taliban now.
‘Women should have close male relatives with them’
The Taliban ministry has also said that only women who are wearing hijab should be allowed to go beyond 70 km. Ministry spokesman Sadiq Aqif Muhajir said, “Women should have close male relatives with them.” The Taliban has given this order at a time when it has already banned dramas featuring female actors on TV a few weeks ago. Not only this, women TV journalists have been forced to come in hijab on TV.
Meanwhile, the Taliban have dissolved Afghanistan’s two election commissions as well as the ministries of peace and parliamentary affairs. A Taliban government official gave this information on Sunday. Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Taliban-led government in Afghanistan, said the country’s independent election commission and the Election Complaints Commission had been dissolved. Karimi described them as “non-essential entities for the current situation in Afghanistan”. He said that if the commissions are needed in future, then the Taliban government can set up these institutions again.
Taliban shuts down ministry of women’s affairs
The new regime of Afghanistan is not yet recognized internationally. There are fears that the Taliban may implement the harsh measures of 20 years ago in power, despite its assurances to the international community. These two election commissions had the authority to oversee and conduct all elections in the country, including presidential, parliamentary and provincial council elections. Karimi said the Taliban had also dissolved the Ministry of Peace and the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs. They were unnecessary ministries in the current structure of the government, he said. Earlier, the Taliban had closed the ministry of women’s affairs.
