The Taliban government, which forcibly took power in Afghanistan, has started issuing decrees curbing the rights of girls and women. The new Taliban government told middle and high school girls not to come to school yet.
The Taliban government of Afghanistan is pronouncing new Tughlaqi decrees every day. Kabul’s interim mayor has issued a new order that the Taliban government has instructed the city’s female employees to stay at home. Women can only work in the country which men cannot.
This decision of the Taliban will prevent most women employees from returning to work. It is also a sign that the Taliban will enforce a harsher interpretation of Islam, including restrictions on women in public life. This is in stark contrast to what he had promised when he was in power, that this time a tolerant and inclusive government would be given.

Namoni said that the women employees are ordered to stay at home till further decision. Only a few women will be allowed to do work which men cannot do. These will include skilled workers in the design and engineering departments, besides maintenance of public toilets for women.

The new Taliban government told middle and high school girls not to come to school yet. On the other hand, boys’ schools have been opened.
