‘Fighters have not been trained to respect them’, Taliban urges women to stay home

‘Fighters have not been trained to respect them’, Taliban urges women to stay home
Taliban-Afghanistan Women


 
In yet another incident that exposes the Taliban’s claim of being generous towards women this time, the Islamist terror outfit has warned the women of Afghanistan to stay indoors, since the Taliban terrorists are not taught how to respect women. "We are worried our forces who are new and have not been yet trained very well may mistreat women," spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid said. "We don't want our forces, God forbid, to harm or harass women." But he called it a "temporary" policy intended to protect women until the Taliban could ensure their safety.


Contrary to their regime from 1996 to 2001, the Taliban has been trying to project itself as a liberal force. But the early signs are not promising.


Responding to the Afghan situation, Ms Heather Barr, the associate director of women's rights at Human Rights Watch, said, “The explanation was that the security was not good, and they were waiting for security to be better, and then women would be able to have more freedom. "But of course in those years they were in power, that moment never arrived - and I can promise you Afghan women hearing this today are thinking it will never arrive this time, either."
