Afghan Women Sports To Be Banned By Taliban
It is been quite silent since TALIBAN took control over Afghanistan’s capital Kabul. Thus, the Taliban have established their form of government and showed much dominance in the past. However, after their recent take over Afghanistan, they have stood quietly polite, lenient, and humble to the citizens of Afghanistan. Also, they have promised to provide the rights of women, children, and men. However, it is worth mentioning that the Taliban are religious people together with a bit of conservation and narrow-mindedness for the people, especially women. Thus, it is predicted that it may affect women’s sports in Afghanistan. Moreover, It is predicted that the Taliban may completely restrict women from playing all sports! It will make a big difference for sure.
“I don’t think women will be allowed to play cricket because women don’t need to play cricket,” Wasiq said. “Also In cricket, they might face a situation where their face and body will not be covered. Islam does not allow women to be seen like this.
“Also It is the media era, and there will be photos and videos, and then people watch it. Islam and the Islamic Emirate [Afghanistan] do not allow women to play cricket or play the kind of sports where they get exposed.”
“The world is watching closely,” the statement said.
“Upon initial analysis of the names announced, it does not look like the inclusive and representative formation in terms of the rich ethnic and religious diversity of Afghanistan we hoped to see. The Taliban were promising over the past weeks,” an EU spokesperson said.
“We will try to take people from other parts of the country,” the spokesperson, Zabihullah Mujahid, said, adding that it was an interim government.
Hibatullah Akhundzada, the secretive supreme leader of the Taliban, released a statement saying the new government would “work hard towards upholding Islamic rules and sharia law”.
“The new Taliban is virtually the same as the old Taliban,” tweeted Bill Roggio, the managing editor of the US-based Long War Journal.
