Taliban stage protest denouncing "disrespect" to the hijab


The Taliban stage a demonstration with around 300 men, chanting "We want Sharia law" and "We want the hijab, even if we die for it". The crowd accuses women's rights activists who have taken to the streets in recent weeks of being hired "mercenaries", especially after they stamped on a burqa during a recent protest.

The end of fighting brought relief for many women – but harsh restrictions imposed by the new government are also causing despair. A network of dozens of women – once students, teachers or NGO workers, as well as housewives – have worked in secret to organise protests against the Taliban over the past six months, but are facing increasingly aggressive suppression.
