Taliban Detain Women and Girls in Daikundi for Not Wearing Iranian-Style Hijab
Reliable local sources in Daikundi report that the Taliban’s virtue and vice squads have been harassing, tormenting, and detaining women on the streets of Nili, the center of this province, due to their failure to wear the Iranian-style hijab.
Local sources informed Hasht-e Subh on Thursday, May 18, that the harassment and mistreatment of women and girls on public roads and in Shahr-e Naw, Nili have been ongoing for the past three days based on their attire.
According to sources, the Taliban’s virtue and vice squad has set up inspection checkpoints where they harass, intimidate, and detain women and girls for not wearing the “Iranian black chadar.”
The exact number of detained women and girls remains unknown.
Another source also indicates that the Taliban’s virtue and vice squads in Daikundi deem Arabic and Turkish hijabs as illegitimate, apart from the “Iranian black chadar,” and refuse to accept them.
Local Taliban officials in Daikundi have not commented on this matter thus far.
Previously, the Taliban’s virtue and vice squads in Daikundi and other provinces of the country have insulted, humiliated, beaten, and detained women and girls for not adhering to the desired hijab according to the group’s standards.
