Post-Taliban Afghan investor closes Kabul women's driving school



The Taliban's takeover of Afghanistan has resulted in the loss of employment opportunities for Afghan businesswomen, who are largely confined to their homes as a result of the Taliban's strict interpretation of Sharia law.


An Afghan female investor, Nilab, has decided to close a driving training center for women in Kabul that she founded a year ago, according to Tolo News, which is based in Afghanistan.


"I'm facing an uncertain future," Nilab admitted.


It was reported by Tolo News that Nilab claimed that no girl or a woman had visited the center in the previous month despite the fact that more than thirty women had expressed an interest in learning to drive during that time period.


Afghan women have told Tolo News that they should not be denied the opportunity to work and study because they constitute half of the population.


Mughda, who completed her training at the center a few months ago, believes that women must continue their work and skill-building. The goal was for me to be able to drive, stand on my own two feet, and not rely on anyone for anything.


"Not only do I have some important goals, but so do all Afghan women and girls," she says. They don't want to be in a position of need. Being a doctor, manager, or other professional is beneficial in order to locate halal (legal) food, according to Giti.


Women are permitted to work and study in accordance with Islamic laws, according to Taliban officials.


"Women can work in any field based on the Islamic framework," said Sayed Khosti, a member of the cultural commission, according to Tolo News. "Women can work in any field based on the Islamic framework."


Girls have not been permitted to attend secondary school by the Taliban to date.


Meanwhile, in Afghanistan, sales of the hijab and burqa have increased as a result of the Taliban's announcement that only women who wear the hijab will be allowed to attend school and work there.


Women activists in Afghanistan have been holding protests in various parts of the country over the past few days, calling for equal rights for themselves and ensuring that they are included in decision-making roles in political life in the country that has been taken over by the Taliban.
