A woman in Afghanistan was set on fire and others are being horribly tortured before being killed by the Taliban, said a former judge.
According to Najla Ayoubi, a former judge from Afghanistan, women in the country are being tortured and killed by the Taliban.
This comes as the Taliban assured that women will be respected and will be given all the rights to work and be educated as long as it respects the parameters of the religion.
Najla said that she had been speaking with women in Afghanistan.
She was told by women in the country that the Taliban has started to show dominance over women.
In northern Afghanistan, a woman was set on fire because she did not cook good food for the Taliban fighters.
Najla, who is currently in the United States of America, said:
They are forcing people to give them food and cook them food. Also, there are so many young women are being in the past few weeks being shipped into neighbouring countries in coffins to be used as sex slaves. They also force families to marry their young daughters to Taliban fighters. I don’t see where is the promise that they think women should be going to work when we are seeing all of these atrocities.
Ayoubi, who is now the chief of the coalition and global programs at Every Woman Treaty, said that she was forced to escape the country because the Taliban were hunting her as she had spoken for women’s right.
After the Taliban started to take over the country, Ayoubi said that she had to be accompanied by the 4-year-old boy of their neighbor just so she could buy some groceries for herself.
The thing is that the Taliban is claiming something different right now.
In a recent press conference that they had held out, the spokesperson of the Taliban said that this current regime is going to respect women’s rights and will allow them to hold jobs, go to school, colleges and many other things more.
But that’s all just talk.
Women journalists in the country have said that they have not been allowed to work by the Taliban.
Shabnam Khan Dawran, an anchor at the Radio Television Afghanistan, said:
I wanted to return to work, but unfortunately they did not allow me to work. They told me that the regime has changed and you cannot work.
These are just some of the many horrifying events that are happening in Afghanistan right now.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the women in Afghanistan, may they help one another and get through this tough time.
