Afghanistan: Taliban officials in Afghanistan have dissolved five key departments of the former US-backed government, including the country’s Human Rights Commission, deeming it unnecessary in the event of a financial crisis. An official gave this information on Monday. Earlier, Taliban officials said on Saturday (May 14) that Afghanistan is facing a budget deficit of 44 billion Afghans ($501 million) this fiscal year. The Taliban on Saturday announced their first annual national budget since taking over the war-torn country last August.
“Since these departments were not deemed necessary and were not included in the budget, they have been dissolved,” said Innamullah Samangani, deputy spokesman for the Taliban government.

The High Council for National Reconciliation (HCNR), the once-high-powered National Security Council, and the commission to oversee the implementation of the Afghan constitution were also dissolved. The HCNR was last led by former Afghan President Abdullah Abdullah and was working for peace talks between the US-backed government of former President Ashraf Ghani and the then insurgent Taliban. Notably, in August 2021, 20 years after invading Afghanistan, foreign forces withdrew from the country, causing the government to fall and the Taliban to seize power.
Samangani said that the national budget was “based on objective facts” and was intended only for those departments which were active and productive. He said the bodies could be reactivated “if needed” in the future.
Taliban imposed many restrictions on women
Let us tell you that after taking control of Afghanistan last year, the Taliban had claimed that this time its rule (from 1996 to 2001) would be softer than the previous term. But the Taliban does not seem to keep its promise, rather it has imposed many restrictions on women. Women are banned from many government jobs, secondary education, and from traveling alone in their cities or outside of Afghanistan.
In the 20 years between the two Taliban regimes, girls were allowed to attend school and women were able to seek employment in all sectors, although the country remained socially conservative.
