International Amnesty: Detention of Girls Violates Women’s Freedom in Afghanistan Further

Bayan News – Following reports of the detention of girls due to “improper hijab,” Amnesty International has labeled their detention as a further violation of women’s freedom in Afghanistan.

In a message on the X platform, the organization expressed concern about the uncertain fate of dozens of girls recently detained by Taliban security forces.

Amnesty International considers these actions by the security forces as arbitrary and has called on the interim Kabul government authorities to stop them as soon as possible.

According to the organization’s statements, Taliban security forces have detained several girls for not adhering to their prescribed dress code.

Video footage circulating on social media shows Taliban morality police officers detaining a group of girls in western Kabul due to their lack of hijab.

These actions by the morality police have sparked widespread reactions on social media.

Richard Bent, the United Nations Human Rights Council’s Special Rapporteur, Mohammad Mohaqiq, a prominent Shia ethnic figure, Ahmad Massoud, the leader of the National Resistance Front, and women’s rights activists have all reacted to these actions by the Taliban security forces.
