WATCH: Taliban Lash 2 Women for Attending Music Party in Noristan Province, Afghanistan

Darpan News Desk IANS, 02 Apr, 2019

    A newly published video shows that Taliban lashed women in Nuristan for “singing/dancing”. Taliban’s leaders in Qatar tells U.S. Special Representative Zalmay Khalilzad that they are no longer “the old Taliban” but the video has raised fresh question over the issue.

     

    Keeping in mind the atrocities and subjugating laws that women were subjected to in the Taliban-held regime, the women of Afghanistan are apprehensive of losing the freedoms that have acquired when the US-backed Afghan regime was established.

     

    Afghan women activists have voiced their fears of being sidelined and a reversal of the women’s rights to education and professional engagement.

     
     
     
     

    The Taliban is known to carry out public lashings, stoning, the amputation of limbs and hands and summary executions.

     

    While these were fairly common in Afghanistan at the height of the Taliban rule in the late 1990s, several reports over the past few years indicate the group has continued to implement similar punishments in the areas they control. This is especially true for women they regard immoral.

     

    Several reports from October 2018 allege that women were also flogged by local Taliban leaders for visiting the doctor in the absence of a male guardian and for using their mobile phones.
