According to foreign media and local media on the 8th, the Gwonseonggyeongakbu, an institution in charge of establishing Islamic order, recently took such measures in cafes and shops in Kabul.

Along with an image of a woman with her face covered in a burqa, the poster read, “According to Sharia (Islamic law), Muslim women must wear a hijab.” A burqa is an Islamic attire that covers the entire body, including the face, with only the eyes pierced with mesh.

In general, the hijab refers to a scarf that covers only the head and neck of Muslim women, but is sometimes used interchangeably with burqa and niqab (Islamic clothing that covers the whole body except the eyes) or is used to encompass them.

The Taliban did not specifically explain what the hijab meant in this poster. However, it is known that the women who accept it feel considerable fear.

Earlier this month, the Kwon Seon-Jung-Kwon ordered to remove the head of a mannequin from a clothing store in the western Herat region.

At that time, entertainment such as music and TV was banned, and public executions were allowed, such as cutting off thieves or stoning a woman who had committed an affair to death. Restrictions were placed on going out, employment, and education for women.

After coming to power in August last year, the Taliban showed a different appearance than in the past by promising to expand passports, but it is in the atmosphere of continuing various bondages, such as not including a single woman in the cabinet.

In the case of middle and high school girls, in some regions, they are still not receiving normal education.

At the end of last month, it also introduced restrictions on women’s outing and travel, stating, “Women who intend to travel more than 72 km without accompanying men should not be driven in a car.”

Prior to that, in late November, broadcasting guidelines including the prohibition of women appearing in TV dramas and broadcasting overseas dramas were also published.
