Islamic Party Leader of Afghanistan recently said that covering of face, hands and feet of women is not Islamic Hijab. The Taliban has reacted strongly to the Taliban ministry of Promoting Virtue and Prohibiting Evil.
Hezb-e-Islami leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar criticized the Taliban’s restrictions on women and girls in Afghanistan in his latest Friday sermon.
He urged the Taliban not to impose special hijab on women and girls in Afghanistan: “I urge the officials of the Islamic Emirate not to impose special Hijab on Afghans, especially women and girls, about which there is nothing in the Qur’an or Sunnah. “It does not exist and there is no command or prohibition on its obligation and illegal.
Referring to some hadiths on how to cover women, he emphasizes that there is a great consensus among scholars that covering the face and hands of women is not Hijab: “And there is a consensus among all scholars and jurists that covering women’s faces, hands and feet does not include Hijab.”
Gulbuddin Hekmatyar’s remarks about the Hijab have provoked a sharp reaction from the Ministry of Promoting Virtue and the forbidding evil of Taliban government.
Mohammad Sadeq Akef, a spokesman of the ministry, stressed that the group’s Hijab is for religious women.
He tweeted to Gulbuddin Hekmatyar: “This poor man is facing a lack of information,” He has stayed away from school and religious education. “There are several reasons for this. He still considers this order to be against the law.” After coming to power, the Taliban imposed many restrictions on the people and deprived women from work and education.
Recently, the Ministry of Promoting Virtue and prohibiting the Evil issued a decree requiring women to wear (burqa) and cover their faces. The ministry warned that women who do not wear the Islamic Hijab their men will be punished. Recently, the Taliban Ministry of Promoting Virtue and Prohibiting Evil even forced female presenters and speakers in the Afghan media to cover their faces with masks. Gulbuddin Hekmatyar has stated that religion is not imposed by force anywhere in the world and emphasizes that if religion dominates the people by force, the people will turn away from the government.
