"Taliban laws have nothing to do with Sharia law," - Mufti Ismagilov - фото 1
The Taliban, which came to power in Afghanistan, said that Sharia law will be the basis of governance of the state. However, according to experts, the Taliban's prescriptions have nothing to do with Sharia law.

According to Ukrinform, this is reported by the Dom TV channel.

"In Sharia law, there is no restriction on women to receive education or work in areas that Islam allows. Not just get an education, but even go out on the street. This does not exist in Sharia law. If we look at other Muslim countries, women in them receive education, work, can hold high positions, can play sports and realize themselves," said Sheikh said Ismagilov, Mufti of the spiritual administration of Muslims of Ukraine.

The channel tells about Zakia Hudadadi, who was supposed to become the first female athlete to represent Afghanistan at the 2020 Paralympics in her Para-Taekwondo debut. But the 23-year-old athlete failed to realize her dream when her country was captured by the Taliban. She was unable to fly from Kabul to Tokyo and now worries not only about her sports career but also about her life.

"I'm a prisoner inside the house. I can't even go outside with confidence... I urge all of you, women around the world, women protection organizations, and all government organizations not to allow women, citizens of Afghanistan, to be deprived of the right to participate in the Paralympic movement. I suffered a lot. I don't want my struggle to be in vain and fruitless. Help me!", said Khudadadi.

However, recent decades have changed the Taliban, analysts say. If earlier they destroyed TV sets, now they participate in TV programs themselves. But you should not expect respect for human rights from them,'' Dom adds.

The Taliban now and the Taliban 20 years ago are different. The level of readiness for violence is different, and their idea of what to do now in Afghanistan has also changed," Igor Semyvolos, director of the Center for Middle East Studies, explained to Dom.

On August 15, in the morning, the Taliban entered Kabul without a fight. The Taliban said it controls the entire territory of Afghanistan. President Ashraf Ghani has left the country.

Soon, the representative of the Taliban political office, Mohammed Naim, announced the end of the war in Afghanistan.
