The Taliban government has introduced a new Afghan police uniform
KABUL: The Taliban government in Afghanistan has introduced a new Afghan police uniform that, contrary to expectations, consists of pants and shirts.
According to the International News Agency, the Interior Ministry of the Taliban government in Afghanistan unveiled the new uniform of the Afghan police in a press conference. Thanks to the transparent system, it has been produced at 70% less cost than the uniforms of Ashraf Ghani era.
A statement from the Taliban’s Ministry of Information said that 20,000 uniforms would be distributed in the capital Kabul and Kandahar at present, while another 100,000 uniforms were being manufactured.
A spokesman for the Ministry of Information added that the contract for the manufacture of Afghan police uniforms had been awarded to a local company and transparency had been maintained in the contract which resulted in a 75% reduction in cost.
Since the Taliban took power in Afghanistan, the police of the Department of Promotion and Goodwill have been very active, while former Afghan police officers have gone into hiding and are slowly returning.
It was expected that the uniforms of the Afghan police would consist of shalwar kameez as well as the command to do good and forbid evil.
