Afghanistan’s Taliban government marked the second anniversary of their takeover of the country with celebrations on Tuesday, issuing a defiant statement to commemorate their return to power. The capital, Kabul, fell on August 15, 2021, when the US-backed government collapsed and its leaders fled into exile.
In the intervening two years, the Taliban have imposed their strict interpretation of Islam. Women are the most affected by the laws that the United Nations has called “gender apartheid.”
In Pakistan, there were protests by women Afghan rights activists who raised their voices “for the silent people of Afghanistan, who lost all their rights as a society on the dark day of August 15, and especially for women, whom they did not They are not allowed to work or even go outside”.
Munisa Mubarez, a women’s activist, stressed that, despite the fact that “two years ago we wrote our slogans against the Taliban, the international community continues to remain silent; it does not say anything, nor does it take any firm decision against the Taliban. Once again , we raise our voices loudly. We want the international community to pay attention to the situation in Afghanistan.”
