The order threatened to suspend the operating licences of the NGOs that failed to implement the directive.The latest restriction comes less than a week after the Taliban authorities banned women from attending universities, prompting global outrage and protests.While the Taliban had promised a softer form of rule when they returned to power in August last year, they have instead imposed harsh restrictions on women – effectively squeezing them out of public life.
