Taliban announced new severe restrictions in Kandahar

It is true that women wear hijab, but they will be taught the correct way to wear hijab.

Abdul Rahman Taybi said that women should not take a taxi without a muharram or male escort and stressed that women are not allowed to sit next to a taxi driver.

Speaking at a news conference in Kandahar, Mr Taybi said music and singing are "absolutely forbidden" and that television and radio stations would not be allowed to broadcast music from today.

He also stressed that "the use of grass, whether it is tobacco or fruit, is absolutely forbidden" and should no longer be used in teahouses or elsewhere.

Abdul Rahman Taybi added that barber shops are not allowed to cut men's hair "in a Western style".

Regarding women's hijab, he said: "It is true that women wear hijab, but they will be taught the correct way to wear hijab."

Mr. Taybi asked the media to broadcast his office message two days a week.

So far, many social restrictions have been implemented first in Herat and Kandahar and then in the capital and other provinces.
