Following the reopening of Kabul Airport, domestic airline Haryana Afghan Airlines resumed flights between the capital Kabul and three provincial capitals on Sunday.

Students must wear abaya and niqab

When the Islamic movement first came to power between 1996 and 2001, homosexuality prevented almost all women from studying. Wearing a burqa, a long veil covering the entire head and body, covering the eyes with wire mesh, was then mandatory.

The issue of women’s rights was highly anticipated by the international community by the Taliban, who seized power after a lightning military attack on August 15. The latter, and a section of the Afghan population, have kept in mind the brutality of the Islamic movement and have been trying to show a more moderate face since it returned to power.
