Report from Afghanistan: women’s resistance against the return of the burqa

-

Published on: 05/14/2022 – 10:34Modified on: 05/14/2022 – 10:35 After having banished Afghan women from political life, secondary school and means of air transport, or having prohibited them to travel without a male member of their family, the Taliban issued a decree on May 7 requiring women to wear an Islamic veil that must cover the face. But some resist the return of the burqa. “When you wear this, you can’t even breathe. Even if they threaten to hang me, I won’t wear the burqa.” In Afghanistan, where the Taliban have once again forced Afghan women to wear the burqa in public, women have decided to resist further tightening of restrictions on their freedoms. They refuse to wear the hijab as defined by the Taliban regime, namely an Islamic veil must cover the face. In the streets of certain districts of Kabul, some Afghan women still dare to go out without covering their faces, but they are, since the publication of this decree, much rarer. “Good Islamic dress covers from head to toe including the face, argues Mohammad Akif Muhajir, spokesperson for the Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and the Repression of Vice. This order does not come from the Islamic emirate, but of Allah and the Koran. The application of the decree began the day we announced it. For now, we are explaining things and we are acting gently towards our sisters. “A message that does not pass . “They insult us, explains a resident of Kabul, opposed to wearing the full veil. We can’t tell them anything because they have weapons and their fingers are always on the trigger. They don’t care that we are women, they don’t don’t value women. I’m not just standing up for my own rights, I’m standing up for the rights of all women in Afghanistan.”
