Sharia law, women’s rights, fighting …: What to remember from the Taliban press conference

This movement ensures that the country does not want any fighting and that it has no enemies. “Hostilities must end.”

LA Taliban spokesman in Afghanistan said it was not mandatory for women to wear the full headscarf and burqa because of “various types of veils”.

When the Taliban ruled the country, between 1996 and 2001, girls’ schools were closed, women could not travel or work, and were generally required to wear a burqa, a veil covering the entire body and face, with an eye level.

“The burqa is not the only hijab (veil) that can be worn. . He did not specify what other type of hijab would be accepted by the Taliban.

Withdrawal of Islamic law

Since the Taliban returned to power after using the harshest version of Islamic law, many countries and human rights groups have expressed concern about the status of women and girls in Afghanistan.

“They can be educated from elementary to university. We announced this policy at international conferences, the Moscow Conference and the Doha Conference (in Afghanistan),” explained Suhail Shaheen.

Thousands of schools controlled by the Taliban are still open, he said.

Last week, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said it was “terrifying and heartbreaking to see the hard-won rights of Afghan women and girls in Taliban-controlled areas.”

Under the previous regime of this radical movement, women could not leave their homes unless they were accompanied by their family’s male chaplain “Mahram”.

Sticks and executions, including stoning for prostitution, were carried out in city squares and arenas.
