On Saturday, June 17, protesting women in Afghanistan wrote a protest letter to the UN Security Council and said that the Taliban have removed women from society with all their might in the past 22 months.
These protesting women added that the Taliban suppressed their political opponents and killed them. Also, they have written that during the last two years, the Taliban have committed unforgivable crimes and turned Afghanistan into hell.
They added that the Taliban have not only committed gender apartheid, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide but have also sheltered terrorist groups in Afghanistan.
These protesting women and girls asked the United Nations Human Rights Council to stand with the women of Afghanistan, act based on the human rights values of the United Nations Charter and other conventions that cover discrimination and systematic exclusion against women, and put more pressure on the Taliban.
Likewise, these protesting Afghanistani women have asked the UN Security Council not to interact with the Taliban and not to recognise them. They added that instead of inviting terrorist groups, the United Nations should invite the pluralist and pro-democracy forces of Afghanistan to the conferences it holds for the promotion of democracy, human rights values, and gender equality.
Afghanistani protesting women wrote in the letter that the UN Security Council should do everything it can to bring about an inclusive government and always support human rights, the rights of ethnic groups, freedom of religion, and freedom of speech. And not allow the Taliban to cross the red lines of the United Nations.
