They were singled out in their country for the professional positions they held. One of the women arrived in Paris with her three children.
Five Afghan women have been evacuated to Paris by French authorities. The five had managed to take temporary refuge in Pakistan, fleeing their country of origin after being threatened by the Taliban.
Among them are a former university director, a former NGO advisor, a television presenter and a teacher at a secret school in Kabul. One of the women arrives accompanied by her three children.
“I worked with the Government, I was an advisor to the Minister of Politics, and I was threatened by the Taliban, they threatened my life,” explains Naveen Hashim. “So I forced myself and escaped from Afghanistan and went to Pakistan.”
“Don’t forget the women of Afghanistan,” asked Muzhgan Feraji, a journalist. “Don’t forget the people of Afghanistan. We need your support and the support of the United Nations.”
In France, NGOs dedicated to immigration and refugee issues pay special attention to these types of cases: women in the Taliban’s crosshairs for the important positions they hold in Afghanistan or simply for maintaining contacts with Westerners.
