Taliban Kills Woman for Not Wearing Burqa Hours after Vowing to Honor Women’s Right
Taliban breaks promise of new 'inclusive' agenda
An Afgan woman who failed to wear her burqa has been shot and killed by Taliban fighters just hours after the terrorist group promised to honor “women’s rights."
A woman in the Takhar province was photographed lying in a pool of blood surrounded by loved ones.
Fox News reported that the woman was killed by insurgents after she was spotted in the street without her head covering.
The killing comes not long after the takeover of the country following Joe Biden's pull out of US troops.
During a news conference, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid promised insurgents would honor women’s rights within Sharia law.
The militants urged women to return to school and work, while the female journalist was grated a televised interview by a Taliban spokesman.
Mujahid also promised to grant amnesty to Afghans working with the now toppled government architected by the US.
The Taliban, before 9/11, prevented women and girls from leaving the house if they did not have a male chaperone.
They also banned women from working it receiving an education.
Insurgents said they would not interfere with US-led evacuation efforts of Westerners, but at the same time, were controlling entrances of Hamid Karzai International Airport and attacking those trying to flee.
“There was kids, women, babies, old women, they could barely walk,” an Afghan former State Department contractor told Fox.
“They [are in a] very, very bad situation, I’m telling you."
"At the end, I was thinking that there was like 10,000 or more than 10,000 people, and they’re running into the airport."
"The Taliban [were] beating people, and the people were jumping from the fence, the concertina wire, and also the wall.”
Neon Nettle reported earlier this week that the Taliban were “going door-to-door” and abducting girls as young as 12 years old to become “sex slaves” for jihadi fighters.
“An inside source suggests that Taliban leaders are attempting to kidnap and forcibly marry women," News.com.au reported.
“[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.
Taliban soldiers were also going door to door confiscating people’s weapons, Reuters reported.“
We understand people kept weapons for personal safety. They can now feel safe. We are not here to harm innocent civilians,” a Taliban official told Reuters.
