The Taliban's Ministry of Education has introduced new uniforms for male and female schoolchildren in Afghanistan.

According to the Taliban’s "Uniform Bill", boys should wear Shalwar Kameez and girls should wear skirts, scarves, and face masks.

The Taliban has declared that wearing the new uniform is mandatory in public and private schools.

The Taliban has introduced these uniforms for female students even though girls' schools have been closed and millions of female students are deprived of education.

According to the new bill, the uniform of boys from the first to sixth grade will be blue, and the uniform of secondary and high school students will be "pistachio". Students of religious schools will wear steel grey and white uniform with white caps.

For girls, the Taliban has chosen a cream uniform with white scarves, and the uniform of secondary and higher girl students will be dark green.

In addition, girls above grade six will have to wear an additional steel-coloured hijab over their clothes and face masks.

In the Taliban bill, it has been stated that it is forbidden to wear pants and short dresses for female teachers and female students.
