These restrictions are enforced by patrolling members of Afghanistan's Ministry for the Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which limited access to Taliban offices for those not properly dressed.
The employees were instructed not to shave their beards and to wear long, loose tops, trousers, and a hat or turban, three sources told Reuters on Monday.
The ministry reportedly told employees that they would not be allowed to enter the offices and eventually lose employment if they failed to adhere to the dress codes, according to Reuters.
The new restrictions are the latest implemented by the Taliban as they continue to adapt their specific interpretation of Islamic law into application. The Taliban closed girls' schools on Wednesday hours after opening them due to what they claim to be problems with the uniforms. They also segregated access to amusement parks on Sunday, saying that men and women are only allowed to visit Afghani amusement parks on specific days of the week.
While the Taliban alleged that they would be a more progressive version than their predecessor, they have failed to do so in their treatment of women. This has not stopped the United Nations from voting to establish ties with the Taliban on March 17. The government has also continued house-to-house searches for U.S. allies left behind in Afghanistan.
