Taliban Government Banned Women Cricket in Afghanistan

The Taliban government has banned cricket for women in Afghanistan. Cricketers have been worried about the future of cricket since the Taliban took power. Men are allowed to play cricket but women are not.

According to the Taliban, women’s faces and body parts are exposed during cricket. Which never supports Islam. The Taliban government has banned cricket in Afghanistan for not supporting Islam.

Abdullah Wasek, head of the Taliban government’s culture commission, said: “Cricket sometimes creates a situation where a woman’s face and parts of her body are exposed. Islam never supports it.

He added, “In the current age of media, pictures or videos do not escape the eyes of the people. Islam and the Islamic Emirate never support women’s cricket. Islam does not even support the sport in which women will be more exposed.

The future of cricket has been in doubt since the Taliban took power in Afghanistan. He feared that the ruling Taliban would suddenly allow him to play cricket.

However, despite allowing boys to play cricket, they have so far said nothing about allowing women to play. Finally, they have decided on this issue. The Taliban’s decision could have an impact on the men’s cricket team.
