Mujahid: A Group of Girls Were Recruited to Promote Improper Hijab

Bayan News – Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson for the Taliban caretaker government, clarified the situation one week after the detention of a group of girls from various parts of Kabul due to “improper hijab.”

Mujahid stated on Tuesday, January 8th, to Tolonews that reports received from security agencies and the Ministry of Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice indicated that a group of women had been recruited by external circles to promote improper hijab in certain areas.

The spokesperson for the Taliban caretaker government further added that female police officers had transferred these girls for two hours as a punishment and advice to prevent such actions.

According to Mujahid, after receiving recommendations, the girls were released in the presence of their families, and no girl has been imprisoned.

He criticized some human rights organizations, emphasizing that some of these organizations receive information from social media without conducting investigations and take a stance.

This comes as last week, Taliban security forces initially detained a group of girls from Dasht-e-Barchi in western Kabul due to improper hijab.

In the latest case, it has been reported that several girls from the Khairkhana area and the Timini neighborhood in Kabul city have also been detained.
