The Mujahedeen are the fighters that observe a strict form of Islamic law. With the help of the United State, they force the communists and the Soviets outside of Afghanistan. Once they arrive at the station, Laila plans to find a man to help her buy her bus tickets and act as her relative. Ever since the Mujahedeen 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..
