“Promoting Virtue and Preventing Vice”. The ministry that replaced the portfolio dedicated to women in Afghanistan

It was one of the big problems related to the rise to power of the Taliban in Afghanistan. What would happen to the rights of women, a gender that suffered greatly at the hands of the radical regime between 1996 and 2001?

This Friday another step was taken towards the segregation of women in Afghan society and public life. The old Women’s Ministry plaque was replaced by another, which now reads “Ministries of Prayer and Guidance, Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.” This was witnessed by journalists from the Reuters, who told government officials to install the new sign, written in Dari and Arabic.

Furthermore, in the same place, several women have been prevented from working, only told to return home.

I am the sole breadwinner in my family. If there is no ministry, what should we do? “, questioned a witness of the Reuters.

Questioned by the US agency, a Taliban official declined to comment on the case.

The truth is that during the previous period of government of the radical group, the Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice was known as a kind of moral police force, which forced to interpret Sharia, the Islamic law now adopted in Afghanistan. , and that, between 1996 and 2001, it prevented women from having access to education.

In the meantime announced by the Taliban government there is no reference to a ministry dedicated to women, although so far it has not been confirmed that it has been abolished. Earlier this week, one of the leaders of the radical group confirmed that women will not be allowed to work in the remaining ministries.
