Female employees of Hamid Karzai International Airport in the Afghan capital, Kabul, returned to work on Tuesday, after a period of interruption following the takeover of the country by the “Taliban” movement.
Procedures are continuing to restore things to normal at the airport, which the Taliban took control of on August 31, with the completion of the withdrawal of US forces from the country.
Airport officials said that about 30 women have returned to work in different departments, and that the number is expected to reach 60 female employees in the coming days.
In a statement to Anadolu Agency, the airport’s head, Mawlawi Abdulhadi Hamedan, said that women can work provided they adhere to the rules of the Islamic veil, calling on all former employees to return to their work.
He noted that the Taliban called on all employees of the previous government to return to their work, and in turn appealed to all employees who were working at the airport to return to their work.
In turn, an employee, who preferred to remain anonymous, expressed her happiness at returning to her work, adding: “We want the Taliban to solve the problem of our salaries.”
On the other hand, members of the Border Police who were working at Kabul Airport during the previous government’s era also returned to work.
It is noteworthy that the airport employees stopped working after the Taliban took control of the capital, Kabul, due to the ambiguity surrounding the movement’s position regarding women’s work.
