Taliban bans beauty salons in Afghanistan
The Taliban has issued a one-month closure notice to all beauty salons in Afghanistan, a government spokesperson said.
“The deadline for the closing of beauty parlors for women is one month,” a spokesperson for the Ministry for the Prevention of Vice and Propagation of Virtue, Mohammad Sadiq Akif, told Reuters on Tuesday.
The directive, dated June 24, was reportedly “based on verbal instruction from the supreme leader” Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada, but authorities did not explain the exact reasoning. The spokesman told AFP that “once they are closed then we will share the reason with the media.”
Menawhile, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) has urged authorities to revoke the ban, saying that this “new restriction on women’s rights will impact negatively on the economy.”
