Features of Life Under the Taliban?



The US military and its allies have left Afghanistan since the end of August.

They evacuated tens of thousands of Afghans. The rest of the Afghan people are now under the role of the Taliban.

The movement’s spokesmen confirmed that the Taliban has changed than it was in the 1990s.

But have you changed?

How are the features of life under their role?

Let us find out

Artists on the frontline

In the pre-Taliban era, which ran from 1996 to 2001, its elements chased artists and their creative works, banned music, and destroyed paintings, statues, and other art objects.

Today, after the Taliban’s return to power, and despite its promises to build a new era, the artists of this country are not reassured by these bright promises and have begun to prepare for a long battle.

They are weaponized by painting and graffiti on street walls, on social media platforms, or at international exhibitions and forums.

Women artists have no future

Two days after the Taliban seized Kabul last month, 26-year-old artist Sara (this is not the real name) took the clay dishes on which she painted inspiring Afghan women and threw them to the ground

She believes that she has no future in the country anymore.

“The art for me is to express everything that I can’t express in words,” tells the young woman, who prefers not to reveal her real name.

Poets in Afghanistan

Ramin Mazher was a child when the Taliban took power.

Two decades later, he became one of the most famous poets in Afghanistan and today lives in France.

“I am not afraid of love, of hope, of tomorrow,” says the poet in Dari language

His poets were converted into songs that have been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on YouTube.

But when the poet recently searched for them he discovered that it’s removed from the internet.

He says that people make artistic suicide with the destruction of works and the removal of publications from social media sites as they fear for their lives.

However, Ramin Mazhar refuses to surrender.

He notes that art exists where humans. Perhaps art will continue in secret.

New school year kicks off in total absence of female students

Schools began in Afghanistan, but for males only in the complete absence of female pupils.

The new school year in Afghanistan worries the international community because the Taliban did not mention the return of female students to school. Indicating that the country is on the same path as the 1990s when the Taliban ruled.

The Taliban abolishes the Ministry of women affairs  

Taliban has canceled the Ministry of women’s Affairs and replaced it with the ministry of “Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice”

No official has indicated the veracity of these reports.

The Afghan Ministry of Education announced the reopening of schools and secondary schools for boys and the return of male teachers to work without any mention of female pupils or teachers.

But there are workers placing a banner bearing the words ” Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice” on the building of the Ministry of women’s affairs in the Afghan capital Kabul.

Several social media posts have appeared in recent hours showing ministry employees demonstrating in front of the building in protest at the loss of their jobs.

They said, “No one hears our women,” one activist said, while another wondered “what else can we expect from these animals?”.

The Taliban establishes its new government and excludes women.

The Taliban unveiled the rest of its government formation after it announced initial appointments to an interim government.

The government formations were completely devoid of female elements.
