Kabul: Women have been subjected to constant atrocities in Afghanistan since the arrival of the Taliban’s “terrorist regime”. The Taliban had pretended to change its image saying it would protect women’s rights, but the reality was far from it. Taliban are breaking promises made to women, they are being forced to wear burqa. Even women are being assaulted on the beach road. Afghan women have started protesting against the Taliban on social media.

Afghan women in their traditional attire have been sharing pictures of themselves on social media to protest the Taliban’s decree to wear the burqa and hijab. According to reports, Afghan women from different countries of the world have started an online campaign to protest against Taliban’s new dress code for girl students. They are putting their culture in front of the world against the Islam propagated by the Taliban. They are writing that what is being done under the Taliban regime is ‘not our culture’. They have been sharing their pictures on social media dressed in colorful traditional Afghan attire.
In a campaign launched by Dr Bahar Jalali, a former professor of history at the American University in Afghanistan, hundreds of women without hijab are posting their photos on social media with hashtags like #DoNotTouchMyClothes and #AfghanistanCulture.
