The chairman of the National Congress Party of Afghanistan has reacted to the abduction of women by the Taliban from some Afghan cities, writing that gender segregation and ethnic and religious discrimination are rampant in the Taliban emirate.
Abdul Latif Pedram, chairman of the National Congress Party and a former member of the Afghan parliament, wrote in a tweet in response to the abduction of girls by the Taliban in some Afghan cities: "Gender apartheid in general and ethnic and religious discrimination in the medieval emirate of the Taliban in particular are rampant."
He then compared the Talibanís actions to the time of the reign of Abdur Rahman, writing: "What is happening today to Hazara and Tajik women in western Kabul and Khairkhana is reminiscent of the crimes and genocides of Abdur Rahman Khan! With the continuation of ethnic and religious discrimination, Hazaras and Shiites will be forced to "taqiyah."
It is worth mentioning that the Taliban, after a complex and secret deal with the United States in Doha, Qatar, took control of Afghanistan on August 15, 2021, and since then has put Afghan citizens, especially women, in a difficult position. With the Talibanís control over Afghanistan, other terrorist groups have also become active in Afghanistan, and Afghanistan has become a source of terrorism in the region, and more than 20 million people are currently struggling with hunger in the country.
Meanwhile, experts say that the Taliban is closely linked to al-Qaeda and has provided refuge to the group in the first period and now in Afghanistan.
Now, although all Islamic appearances are in place in Afghanistan and prayers are more frequent than in other times, and the sound of the call to prayer is even louder and wider than in previous periods, but fear and terror dominate society, poverty is spreading, the essence of Islam, namely justice and respect for human rights, and what Islam appeared for them does not exist.
In recent months, the attacks of the opposition fronts on the Talibanís fighters have increased, and so far hundreds of the groupís fighters have been killed and wounded in the attacks of the opposition fronts.
Here are some additional details about the abductions of Hazara and Tajik women:
The Taliban have abducted women from different cities in Afghanistan, including Kabul, Herat, and Mazar-e-Sharif.
The women are reportedly being held in Taliban-controlled prisons or camps.
The Taliban have not released any information about the reasons for the abductions.
Pedramís comments reflect the growing concern about the Talibanís treatment of women and minorities in Afghanistan. The Taliban have imposed a number of restrictions on womenís rights, including banning them from working, attending school, and traveling without a male guardian. They have also discriminated against minorities, such as Hazaras and Tajiks.
The attacks of the opposition fronts on the Talibanís fighters are a sign of growing resistance to the Talibanís rule. The opposition forces, which are made up of former government officials, soldiers, and members of the Afghan security forces, are trying to overthrow the Taliban and restore a more inclusive government.**
