WIFE CANNOT SIT WITH HUSBAND WHILE DINING AT RESTAURANT! WOMEN CANNOT DINE WITH THEIR FAMILY, TALIBAN ENFORCES GENDER SEGREGATION IN RESTAURANTS
The Taliban in Herat province have implemented a gender segregation plan in the province’s restaurants, media reports said. Men are not permitted to dine with their family members in family restaurants, according to sources, Khaama Press.
Owners have been verbally reminded that the rule applies “even if they are husband and wife”, according to Riazullah Seerat, a Taliban official at the Ministry for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the report said. According to a woman who did not wish to be identified, the manager of a Herat restaurant on Thursday told her and her husband to sit separately.
