Young Afghans have launched an awareness campaign called "Sun Behind Curtain," aimed at overturning the customary use of the burqa. Also called a "chadari," the garment typically covers women from head to toe and has become a favorite piece of clothing for suicide bombers, who disguise themselves as women to launch terror attacks. Afghan VOA reporter Khalil Noorzai visited a photo exhibition in the city of Herat and filed this report narrated by Bezhan Hamdard.
