Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Fawad Chaudry has said that extremism in Afghanistan has posed a threat to Pakistan.

While addressing a media talk, he said that the situation of human rights in Afghanistan is deteriorating with every passing day, saying that women are barred from going to schools.

The federal minister’s comments came a day after the Afghan Taliban said that women seeking to travel long distances should not be offered transport unless they are accompanied by a close male relative.

The guidance, issued by the Ministry for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, also called on all vehicle owners to offer rides only to those women wearing hijabs.

“Women traveling for more than 45 miles (72 kilometres) should not be offered a ride if they are not accompanied by a close family member,” ministry spokesman Sadeq Akif Muhajir told AFP on Sunday, specifying that it must be a close male relative.

The guidance, circulated on social media networks, comes weeks after the ministry asked Afghanistan’s television channels to stop showing dramas and soap operas featuring women actors.
