Women’s athletic sports have been outlawed by the Taliban, according to a number of sports club owners in Kabul.
“They (the Islamic Emirate) do not allow women to participate in athletic sports, despite the fact that the women’s area was previously separated and is now as well. In addition, the coach is a woman, not a guy. Allow (women) to undertake their exercises, however, “Tolo News said Hafizullah Abasi, the chairman of a sports club.
“I haven’t been able to workout since the Taliban took power. For training, I recommended a number of sports clubs. However, they stated that the women’s portion was closed “Tahira Sultani, a Taekwondo and mountaineering coach, agreed.
In the last eight years, she has received honors on both a national and international level.
“Over the last six years, I’ve had a lot of passion and ambition. I wanted to hoist the flag of Afghanistan in the best possible way around the world “According to Tolo News, Arizo Ahmadi, a member of the national Jujutsu squad, said.
Meanwhile, the Islamic Emirate said that women’s sports would be permitted in accordance with Islamic ideals and Afghan culture.
“In every way, we shall stick to the Islamic Emirate’s policy. We would tolerate whatever is permissible in our culture and heritage “Physical Education and National Olympic Committee spokesman Dad Mohmmad Nawa stated.
International humanitarian organizations have criticized the present government’s restriction on women participating in sports, according to Tolo News.
“There have been a number of concerning reports,” the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) said earlier in a series of tweets, “including Taliban bans on women’s sports, limited women’s access to health care due to Taliban rules requiring women to be chaperoned by a man, and suspension of international aid.”
