In an interview with the Australian broadcaster “SBS”, Wasiq argued that the presence of women in sport is something unnecessary. The deputy head of the Taliban cultural commission specifically commented on cricket, one of the most popular sporting activities in Afghanistan and Asia.
“I don’t think women will be able to play cricket, because it’s not necessary for them to play. They may be in situations where their face or body is not covered, and Islam does not allow women to be seen in that way,” Wasiq said.
The Afghan cricket federation revealed to The Guardian newspaper that it has not yet received any official statement from the Taliban on the matter. However, the organization confirmed that the training program for women was suspended.
Last month, Wasiq authorized men’s cricket teams to continue playing normally, even participating in international championships. (ANSA).
