Why Taliban Banned Dress Code Violating Sporting Activities

After US left Afghanistan and the Taliban took over power, there have been changes that have been made, including banning of sporting activities that violate the dress code of their women. The second in command at the Taliban's cultural commission Ahmdulla Wasiq made it clear that sports is not a necessity for women to participate in Afghanistan.

“I don't think women will be allowed to play sports like cricket because it is not necessary that women should play cricket,” said Wasiq

The sporting activities like cricket have are banned because Afghanistan women face situations where their face and body exposed and Islam religion does not allow women to play sports where their body parts is visible to the public.

In the case of men, Taliban regime have no problem with them participating in sports as long as they uphold the values and rules of Islam, but it's believed that the future of the men international team might be in jeopardy.
