The US State Department has stated that it will take appropriate steps to hold those responsible for these actions accountable.

“we have – we will continue to take all appropriate steps to hold them accountable for those actions,” he added.

Recently, the Ministry of Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice arrested several women and girls in different areas of Kabul for not wearing the hijab.

Reports of similar arrests have surfaced from various parts of Kabul, including Dasht-e-Barchi, Taimani, and Khair Khana.

Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson of the Taliban, confirmed the arrests as a form of “group punishment” aimed at promoting veiling and claimed it to be temporary.

The Taliban’s actions have sparked international outrage, with organizations like Amnesty International urgently calling for an end to the oppression of women.
