Taliban ‘Going Door-to-Door’ Abducting Children to Turn Into ‘Sex Slaves’
Terror group compiling lists of women and girls aged between 12 and 45
The Taliban terrorist group is reportedly “going door-to-door” and abducting girls as young as 12 years old to become “sex slaves” for jihadi fighters, according to News.com.au.
The Australian network's report cites an earlier report by Bloomberg:
“An inside source suggests that Taliban leaders are attempting to kidnap and forcibly marry women."
“[T]he Taliban are going door-to-door in some areas, compiling lists of women and girls aged between 12 and 45 years for their fighters to forcibly marry,” Bloomberg reported on August 9.
OpIndia reported August 12, citing an August 11 report from the Daily Mail:
“Taliban commanders, after capturing some of the provincial capitals, have ordered local Imams [Islamic leaders] to bring the lists of unmarried women aged from 12 to 45 for their soldiers to marry as they view them as ‘qhanimat or ‘spoils of war.’”
Conservative Indian news site, OpIndia, wrote:
“The Taliban intends to ‘divide’ these kids among themselves as Jihadists consider them as a ‘prize.'”
“Taliban fighters are permitted to do this under their strict interpretation of Islam which views women as ‘kaniz’ or ‘commodities,'” Omar Sadr, a professor at the American University of Afghanistan, told the Daily Mail.
In recent months, the Taliban reconquered large swaths of Afghanistan as NATO-allied troops withdrew from the country.
The U.S. ousted the Taliban from Afghanistan’s government in 2001 and will end the operation by August 31.
But since the almost complete troop withdrawal, the Taliban quickly regained control over at least 85 percent of the country.
Meanwhile, the Sunni terror group increased its military campaign, retaking three northern provincial capitals in one day.
The Taliban has reimposed sharia in the majority of the regions it reconquered in recent weeks.
The group also ordered taxi drivers “not to drive any woman into the town unless she’s fully veiled,” as per the BBC.
“The day after we leave, reports emerge of a young woman being murdered because of her clothing,” the BBC revealed.
“Haji Hekmat, though, rejects allegations Taliban members were responsible.”
The BBC identified Hekmat as a “local Taliban leader and our host in Balkh.”
“All the women we see … are wearing the all-encompassing burqa, covering both their hair and face,” the broadcaster wrote.
Hekmat claimed no women were being “forced” to wear the full burka, “the Taliban are simply ‘preaching’ that this is how women should dress.”
“In our Sharia, it’s clear, for those who have sex and are unmarried, whether it’s a girl or a boy, the punishment is 100 lashes in public,” a Taliban judge told the BBC.
“But for anyone who’s married, they have to be stoned to death … For those who steal: if it’s proved, then his hand should be cut off,” he said.
