    The photo of an Afghan woman walking the streets of Kabul in a mid-length dress with her bare legs showing has gone viral.

    “I was shocked,” said local journalist Hayat Ensafi, who snapped the photo. “I knew I had to catch this special moment because I never saw a woman here walking down the streets like this.”

    Mr. Ensafi told the BBC that the woman “walked very fast” and didn’t want to speak with him when he caught up to her.“The whole city of Kabul is shocked,” he said.

    Women face severe restrictions on clothing and movement in Afghanistan. After Mr. Hayat posted the photo on Facebook, thousands of people shared and commented on it.

    “We have seen thousands of people talk about it,” the BBC’s Syed Anwar in Kabul said. “Not only on social media but also in the streets people are talking about her, wondering if she is mentally ill or if she is protesting.

    “It’s risky for women to walk bare-legged in Kabul,” he added. “At the same time, some people have argued that [dressing like this] can pave the way for Taliban propaganda.”

    Maybe some lecherous chap had forced sexual intercourse and threw her out before she could even wear her pyjamas.

    That pic looks like she forgot to wear something :lol:

    TBH I think some older people/conservatives object to showing legs here too.

    These were scenes from Afghanistan when Afghanistan was ruled by a pro-Soviet Union government (Shown below)

    Of course if something good happens with the SU, America starts getting the itching feeling in posterior.
    Enter Brzezinski.
    America creates, funds and arms the Mujahideen through proxies (to create trouble and eventually dismantle the Soviet Union and thus weaken Russian control over vast natural resources.)
    And now look at the state of Afghanistan and its neighborhood.
    Thank you America for spreading democracy and freedom here and elsewhere. :thumb:

    Just sad what America is doing to this world; from Afghanistan, to Arabia, to Syria, to Chechenya, to Serbia, to Libya, to Ukraine and many many more. :tsk:

    Or maybe she wanted to shake a leg.

    shake a leg
    1. to hurry; to move faster.

    From the rapist, which is a natural phenomenon amongst the cloistered and segregated society.

    HARAM :rofl:....... MUSLIM GIRLS in Saudi

    [​IMG]

    A girl wearing jeans pants and a head helmet was caught on camera riding a motorcycle with a man on a busy street in Saudi Arabia in violation of rules which ban women from going out without wearing an abaya (gown).

    The incident came a few days after two women were seen walking without abaya in the Western Red Sea port of Jeddah. Another girl wearing a tight trousers and a T-shirt was seen crossing the road in the capital Riyadh.

    A YouTube film shot by a passer-by showed the helmeted woman sat behind the motorcyclist and surrounding his waist with her arms.

    The Taliban must have really done a number on Afghanistan if a woman in Kabul wearing a dress showing her bare legs is so out of the ordinary that it's news.

    Of course, if her legs are exposed it probably indicates rape... after all what other sort of woman would consort with lecherous chaps?

    If watching a soccer match is a crime then psychiatric help for the Nation is a dire necessity.
