Taliban restricts men, women from sitting sit together at restaurants in Afghanistan

According to a media report published on Friday, the Taliban has implemented a gender segregation strategy in the western Herat province.

According to media, which cited sources in Herat province, men are not authorized to dine with family members in family restaurants.

The law of the Ministry for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice applies “even if they are husband and wife,” according to the Afghan news agency.

According to an Afghan woman, the manager of a Herat restaurant instructed her to sit alone with her husband.

According to Riazullah Seerat, a Taliban official at the Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the ministry has issued an order requiring Herat’s public parks to be gender-segregated, with men and women only allowed to visit on different days.

“On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, we urged ladies to go to parks,” he said. “On the other days, guys are welcome to come for leisure and fitness.”

The Taliban had issued a similar edict in March, prohibiting men and women from visiting amusement parks on the same day.

In a joint statement issued earlier today, foreign ministers from Western nations underlined their dissatisfaction with the Taliban’s increasing limitations on Afghan women’s human rights.

“Afghans should be permitted to exercise their basic human rights. These rights are unalienable and indivisible, as stated in international human rights law and recognized by all UN members “the declaration read.
