Taliban takes another drastic decision on Afghan women, gives reason
It has been made known that Afghan women cannot participate in sports including cricket as sporting activities would “expose their bodies”, the Taliban said on Wednesday.
The deputy head of the Taliban’s cultural commission, Ahmadullah Wasiq told the media that sports activities were not necessary for women.
.Earlier this week, the Taliban decreed that only a woman teacher would teach female students but if that was not possible then “old men” of good character could fill in.
Women attending private Afghan universities must wear an abaya robe (full-length dress) and niqab (garment that covers the face), the Taliban said. They said the classes must be segregated by gender — or at least divided by a curtain.
The decree applies to private colleges and universities, which have mushroomed since the Taliban’s first rule ended in 2001.
Meanwhile, the Taliban on Tuesday announced the formation of a new Afghanistan governmentheaded by Mullah Hassan Akhund. This will be an “acting” government and not a permanent one, a Taliban spokesperson said weeks after the Islamic militant group took over the reins of power in Afghanistan.
