Taliban orchestrates women to march in their support
The Taliban over the weekend orchestrated a women’s march with dozens of them who covered from head to toe and hidden behind layers of black veils, filled an auditorium at Kabul University’s education center, holding Taliban flags and showing support to the lifestyle promoted by the militant group.
The women marched briefly outside the university, waving placards saying “the women who left don’t represent us”, referring to the many thousands who fled in fear of a Taliban crackdown on women’s rights. “We don’t want co-education,” read another banner.
Outside the auditorium, the Taliban director of higher education, Maulvi Mohammad Daoud Haqqani, said 9/11 was the day “the world started their propaganda against us calling us terrorists and blaming us” for the attacks in the United States.
Atta Zakiri, a self-declared civil society activist, told the Associated Press that the US was wrong to attack Afghanistan after 9/11. He blamed the post 9/11 invasion of Afghanistan for creating another generation of hardline Taliban fighters.
“The Taliban should have been allowed to stay. Why didn’t we work with them? Instead they went to fight,” he said. “And now we are back to where we were 20 years ago.”
