Here in this country, the duty to wear masks is being discussed; the burqa is a worse burden for women in Afghanistan. This is always expected by the male Islamic society from sexual maturity onwards, like here in a small village in Badakhshan.
After the end of the Taliban government in December 2001, the requirement to wear a burka was abolished. Nevertheless, very few women still dare to leave home without a burka. This is mainly out of concern for their personal safety and reputation. | Afghanistan
