New Taliban decree: Students must take separate lessons with black abaya and head covering | Afghanistan in the hands of the Taliban

From now on, Afghan students will be required to wear a black abaya and niqab (veil covering the face; ed.). They are also no longer allowed to attend classes with male students. This is evidenced by a decree published by the new Taliban regime the day before the reopening of private universities in the country.

Women registered in these institutions will have to leave the classroom five minutes earlier than the men. They will then have to wait in a room for the male students to leave the building.

Universities will also have to assign teachers to these students. Another possibility is to recruit “older teachers” whose morals have been checked.

During the first period of the Islamic movement’s power, between 1996 and 2001, almost no women could study because of the rule that forbade mixing of classes. Then he was forced to wear a burqa.

The abaya is a long veil that covers the body. The niqab covers the face except for the eyes.

Air traffic in Kabul

Ariana Afghan Airlines is now again responsible for flights between the capital, Kabul, and three important regional capitals. Flights with relief supplies also depart daily from Qatar.

Western countries used the airport until the end of August to carry out massive evacuations. It happened after the Taliban reached the capital faster than expected, causing great chaos. Regular air traffic stopped.
