Taliban abolish Women's Ministry: No more female employees' arrival - Politics Abroad

After the radical Islamists came to power Taliban In Afghanistan rights Women always restricted. Now the Ministry of Women has been abolished!

The Taliban have already introduced radical Islamic law as current law, with women almost completely disappearing from everyday life. If a woman is to appear in public, this is usually only accepted by Islamic rulers under a full veil.

► New York Times reporter Sharif Hassan posted a video on Twitter showing how female employees of the now-defunct Ministry of Women protested their dismissal in front of the building in the capital, Kabul:

“The Taliban dissolved the entire Ministry of Women, which means that about 1,000 employees, mostly women, have lost their jobs,” Hassan said.

The Ministry of Women’s Affairs said they were sent home for weeks. The gate to the ministry building was finally closed on Thursday.

The Ministry of Women has been transformed into the Ministry of Prayer, Guidance, Enjoining Good and Forbidding Evil. This so-called “Ministry of Virtue” was responsible for carrying out the most heinous punishments during the first Taliban rule (1996-2001).

The Ministry-appointed Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice has also carried out public executions in the past.

▶ ︎ At that time, women were only allowed to leave the house accompanied by their male relatives. If a woman is traveling alone, she is flogged by the employees of the Ministry of Virtue. At that time, the authority was also responsible for enforcing the obligation to pray and forbidding men from shaving.

Since the extremist Islamist Taliban movement took over Afghanistan at the end of August, they have repeatedly asserted that they are “more moderate” than they were during their rule from 1996 to 2001. The world has seen nothing of this yet.

A dress code for women has already been introduced, people have been whipped in the streets, and schools and universities are either closed or only allowed for women and men separately. In many places, women are no longer allowed to go to educational institutions.

Starting Saturday, boys should be able to attend classes again in high schools. Only girls are allowed to enroll in primary schools, if any.
