Taliban government makes protests illegal over ‘security’ concerns
Arab News says Demonstrations without permission have become illegal in Afghanistan after the appointment of an interim Taliban government, which on Wednesday night cited the security of protesters as the main reason for the ban.
The Taliban unveiled their Cabinet on Tuesday, ending weeks of a power vacuum after the previous administration collapsed when the group took control of Afghanistan and seized Kabul on Aug. 15.
Despite assurances last month of their aim to form an inclusive government, the list of caretaker Cabinet members announced by the Taliban was dominated by the group’s old guard. Some of its members, including Prime Minister Mohammed Hasan Akhund, are on a UN sanctions list. No women have been included in the Cabinet.
