Now, women will not be permitted to dine with their husbands or other male family members at restaurants.

The rule has been brought in by the Ministry for Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which earlier had issued a directive requiring Herat's public parks to be gender-segregated, with men and women authorised access on specific days.
