Kabul to remove all photos of women from billboards at business centers, shops

The Kabul municipality has taken steps to remove women's images from stores in the capital city as part of a new initiative.

The government has instructed the municipality's authorities to remove any photos of women from signboards at shops and business centres in Kabul, according to Nematullah Barakzai, a spokesman for the Kabul municipality. "pictures that are against Islamic norms will be collected or removed from billboards based on the government's decision," said Barakzai.

Meanwhile, beauty salon owners in Kabul have criticised the Islamic Emirate's decision and begged the government not to impose limits on their businesses. Hayesta Saifi, a make-up artist, has spent the last seven years working at a beauty shop. Shayesta stated that she is aiding her 10-member family financially. "This is restricting women's work, and there's a concern that our business may be closed in the next days," she added.

Parwana, a women's rights activist, asked, "How does it help the government if photos of women are removed?" This comes as foreign organisations have frequently urged the Taliban not to disregard women's rights or marginalise them in society. The Islamic Emirate, on the other hand, says that it already respects women in accordance with The islamic principles.
