Gulchatai, open the face, or a brief history of Afghan burda

Where in the Middle East the most beautiful women? If you believe medieval poetry, in Kashmir. In Iran in the XII – XV centuries, the Turkic ethnic type was considered ideal, as evidenced by a characteristic section of the eyes of all Guri on classic Persian book miniatures. What kind of force was this beauty, if more Omar Khayam promised for one-sole birthday on the lant of cute to give a whole Samarkand with Bukhar! And a little later, poetry found whole sitmas of written beauties in a few, it would seem an unexpected place – in the Afghan mountains.

Alas, check the justice of the enthusiastic ecstatic sighs of Abdurrahman Momanda, Kazhant Shayda and other classics of Afghan love lyrics just will not succeed. What is hidden under a deaf parant with a grid in the face of the face – it is necessary to know only the father, her husband, brother and the closest relatives of the female, and more to anyone.

This largest largest Taliban thanks to the religious tag of the Taliban, to study and work with the ban, almost the main symbol of the powerlessness and slave position of Afghan.

When during the Board "Islamic students" The delegations of Afghan human rights defenders appeared in the European Council, everyone fell into the preparimous state. But in general, in Afghanistan, it is the most common wear of women in almost all cities, and even more so in rural areas. The only exception was Pashtuki-Kochnitsa, never worn it and earned themselves quite well-deserved fame of exceptionally spectacular women.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, Emir-reformer Amanulla Khan Gazi (1919–1929) attempted "Refrigerate" compatriots. It ended in anything, and the photos of his own spouse in European clothes, made during the monarch of the monarch of quartes in Europe in 1928, successfully replaced anti-government leaflets during the rebellion of Bach and Sakao. Here, look, they say, as the queen and how obscene it is dressed.

Slowly "undress" Afghans began already in the 60s of the last century. But it was touched by only representatives of the highest sections of society, the metropolitan intelligentsia and except for the middle urban layers. All the others, as they put on a barge of 7–8, we wore her all my life as Islamic clothes, did not feel any "Discovery and discomfort".

Peak "Emancipation" Ended at the end of the 70s – 80s. Already first "Women" The decrees of the Revolutionary Council of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan increased the marriage age, abolished Levirate (the responsibility of the widow to marry the secondary husband’s brother), limited Kalm (redemption for the bride) of the symbolic amount and generally opened the official access to education and workplaces. Including military service. Afghanski served even in state security bodies. Carrying a wagon has become voluntary. The effect turned out interesting: residents of Kabul, Jelalabad, Mazar-Sharif and other major cities really began to consider it a symbol of the cure and happily threw off, and their village commodities felt that they were undressing doggings with all honest people.

Mujahideen, who came to power in April 1992, committed to this dilemma. Women were prescribed to appear in people only in Islamic clothes. It looked like this – no one, of course, did not allow Afghans to decide on the streets in a mini-skirt or trousers, which was quite possible in the royal times or "Communists", but also did not require categorically hiding face. Tight cape-charshaf closing the head, but leaving an open face, was enough for local "Mukhtasibov" (morality accommodation).

Taliba S "female question" It was stopped so that the violation of the rights of women with them was the parable in the towns.

"Students" did not become – Afghans rushed to crash. The first female magazine has already been published "Malalay", Soon another will appear — "RUZ" ("Day"), he will be an analogue of the French magazine "El". Publications will tell readers about fashion and cosmetics, children and kitchen, in a word, about everything that you need and interesting to representatives of the beautiful half of humanity, regardless of which country they live in.

True, still it is doubtful that "RUZ" will be indispensable for the female part of the population of the village of Madhaeil County Schinkara or some other Afghan Uryupinsk. After all, to read magazines, first you need to be able to read.
