Afghanistan: Taliban tells female TV host to cover face

Kabul, May 19: In another new decree on Thursday, the Taliban instructed all female hosters working on all television channels to cover their faces while the show was unveiled, TOLOnews tweeted.

Continuing the thread, the Ministry of Deputy, Virtue, Information and Culture called it the final verdict and said the order was issued to all media in Afghanistan. The Taliban bans women and girls without maframs from entering the Herat coffee shop in Afghanistan.

The Taliban’s atrocities against women in Afghanistan have been on the rise since the organization seized power in Afghanistan last August, banning the humanitarian rights of young girls and women.

The Taliban, in a previous official order, instructed female staff members of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) to wear hijab in the office, and that Afghan women wear makeup and reproductive rights. Restricted and banned the education of girls from class 6 and above are add-ons.

Dozens of Afghan women are protesting Taliban leaders’ new orders for women wearing hijabs. The Taliban-led government is unrecognized by most international communities and promises to downplay human and women’s rights.

The UN mission in Afghanistan expressed concern about the announcement, stating that this decision contradicts many guarantees on respect and protection of all Afghanistan’s human rights, including the human rights of women and girls. The Taliban warned that if a woman did not obey orders, her parents would be punished and imprisoned.
