According to reports, the declaration was issued by the Taliban’s Ministry of Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.

The directive further mentioned that women who desire to travel solo for more than 72 kilometers, unless they are accompanied by a close male family member, should not be offered road transport.

Vehicle owners to not allow women without headscarves

Moreover, the acting Taliban government in the war-torn country also called on vehicle owners to refuse rides to women not wearing headscarves. Additionally, it asked people to stop playing music in their vehicles.

Now, the new direction has drawn condemnation from right activists around the world.

According to the BBC, the campaign group Human Rights Watch said that the new restrictions moved further towards making women prisoners.

Meanwhile, it is to mention that the latest move follows the Islamist group barring women in public-sector roles from returning to work.
