According to a new report from Fox News, an Afghanistan woman was shot and killed by the Taliban on Tuesday for not wearing a burqa.
The devastating news comes after President Joe Biden’s disastrous withdraw from Afghanistan which left the Taliban in control of the country with thousands of Americans and Afghan allies stranded.
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
A graphic photo exclusively obtained by Fox News reportedly shows a woman lying in a pool of blood in the Taloqan district as her parents and other individuals huddle around her. The woman was allegedly killed because she left her house without a burqa, Fox News reported. The Taliban allegedly continues to patrol Kabul, searching for activists and government workers, while gunshots have reportedly been heard as the fighters make their way through the capital, according to Fox News.
Taliban Commander Assad Massoud Khistani recently told CNN’s Chief International Correspondent Clarissa Ward that women should not be fearful of the Taliban but must cover up. Ward, who was wearing an abaya that covers everything but the face, hands and feet, was told she was not dressed conservatively enough. Khistani said women would have to wear a niqab, which is a veil for the face that only allows the eyes to be visible, as previously reported.
The Taliban, however, has attempted to paint themselves as pro-women’s rights in recent days, encouraging women to join the government. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said Tuesday that women’s rights would be honored within the confines of sharia law, according to Fox News. Taliban cultural commission member Enamullah Samangani also said the new government will “provide women with [the] environment to work and study.”
Women’s rights activists and feminists are nowhere to be seen as women in Afghanistan are being raped, forcefully married and killed for being women. CNN’s chief international correspondent Clarissa Ward who was on the ground in Afghanistan actually described the Taliban as “friendly.”
Ward explained that it was “clear” that the Taliban was in “charge” of Afghanistan.
At one point during the interview, the Taliban terrorists chanted “death to America” which ward interpreted as them just being “friendly.”
“As soon as we leave our compound, it’s clear who is now in charge,” Ward stated. “Taliban fighters have flooded the capital. Smiling and victorious, they took this city of 6 million people in a matter of hours — barely firing a shot. This is a sight I honestly thought I would never see: scores of Taliban fighters, and just behind us, the U.S. embassy compound. Some carry American weapons. They tell us they’re here to maintain law and order.”
One of the Taliban commanders told her “everything is under control” and that America needs to “leave” Afghanistan.
“‘Everything is under control. Everything will be fine,’ the commander says. ‘Nobody should worry,’” she reported.
“What’s your message to America right now?” Ward asked.
