What would be our argument to view such restrictions as freedoms.

They were living in a male dominated society. Therefore the men made the rules and applied the punishment. However, if you wanted to look at their restrictions as freedoms you could say the women dont have to go to school,work, spend lot's of money on clothes, worry about whether they are ever going to get married,be influenced by the internet or cable TV,the dangers of eating pork etcedra.
See "Discrimination against women and girls in Afganistan" (E/CN.6/2002/5)www.un.org/events/women/2002/sit source: Report of the Secretary General women 1970
The restrictions on women, like having to cover up and everything, are freedoms for women because in a male dominated society like that, women don't want to show their bodies. It's not safe for women to go around the roads/streets showing off their bodies because men would just stare at them and it would be really uncomfortable. So for the women, covering up their bodies could be liberating because then they don't have to deal with the men's gazes. I hope this answers your question.
