With the advent of the Taliban in Afghanistan, the limits of cruelty have been crossed and there is an atmosphere of panic everywhere. Most cases of women and journalists being beaten up and tortured in various ways are coming to the fore. The screams of journalists, the torment and the cries of women are being heard from across the prison walls. Therefore, a high official of the United Nations has appealed to the Taliban administration to respect the rights of women.
Pramila Patton, UN in-charge for women’s affairs in Afghanistan, has protested against the brutal thrashing of women for peaceful demonstrations, saying she is shocked and hurt to see that women in Afghanistan are being brutally beaten up and flogged. are being killed because she is peacefully protesting for her fundamental rights. I am with these Afghan women who raised their voice for their freedom.
Patton said she urges the Taliban to ensure all rights are given to Afghan women and girls. The Taliban must keep their word and give equal rights to women in the public and political life of Afghanistan. UN Special Representative Deborah Lyons told the Security Council that the new reality is that the lives of millions of people in Afghanistan are entirely at the mercy of the Taliban. The UN will also have to see how it will approach high-level officials of the Taliban’s self-styled government.
