Ever since the Mujahideen takeover two years earlier, women were forbidden to travel without a male relative, as per Shari’a, strict Islamic law. These laws also required women to cover themselves, and punished adultery with death. Girls are not allowed to go to school. The country has become a theocracy where Islamic law takes the place of laws devised by government.
