Taliban capture Kabul on Sunday and Replace their flag: President Ashraf Ghani escaped to Tajikistan.
It is like walking from light to darkness. After two decades, the country of Kabuliwala is under Taliban rule again. Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai has expressed concern over the tragic situation in Afghanistan. On Twitter, he expressed concern. The Nobel laureate is particularly concerned about children, women, and human rights activists in Afghanistan.
On Sunday, the fall of the Afghan administration was confirmed by the Taliban. Instead of fighting, the militants snatched Kabul from the Afghan army. The Afghan flag is lowered from the capital city, and the Taliban flag is flying there.
President Ashraf Ghani has virtually surrendered to them and left the country. She is probably fleeing to Tajikistan. And now the top Taliban leader – Ali Ahmed Jalali – will sit in his chair. Again, the name of Ghani Baradar is also circulating.
Concerned Malala tweeted knowing this news. “The Taliban’s occupation of Afghanistan deeply saddens me,” she tweeted. I am apprehensive about the women, minorities, and human rights advocate there.
She also added that “my appeal to all the world powers is that they all work together to bring peace to Afghanistan and provide all possible assistance to the people and refugees of that country.”
Incidentally, Pakistani girl Malala is quite aware of the Taliban atrocities. In 2011, militants accused Malala, a resident of the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region, of trying to kill her by shooting her in a school bus. She was taken to Britain for treatment to save her life.
Malala Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 jointly with Kailash Satyarthi of India for her work on women’s education. Since then, she and her family have been British citizens. Malala is now working to protect women’s rights.
Malala Yousafzai is deeply concerned about the situation of her own country’s neighbor. She is apprehensive about the need for women to be veiled again, especially during the Taliban era. Like an honest social worker, he appealed to all Afghans for help.
