Taliban forcing Afghan women to marry terrorists: Report

Incidents of brutal killings of captured soldiers and unprovoked attacks on civilians have also been reported in the recently occupied territory of the Taliban.


Kabul: There have also been reports of 'atrocities' on women amid increasing control of the Taliban in Afghanistan. The Taliban is rapidly gaining hold in Afghanistan and many provinces and their cities are now occupied by Taliban fighters. In a media report on Thursday, it has been said that this terrorist organization is now forcing women to marry terrorists. Incidents of brutal killings of captured soldiers and unprovoked attacks on civilians have also come to light in the recently occupied territory of the Taliban.

The Wall Street Journal report states that the Taliban told government officials, military forces and people after their "victory" of control in most parts of the country that they did not need to be afraid, but their "actions" were quite opposite. The US embassy in Kabul has strongly criticized the Taliban after reports emerged of Afghan forces brutally killing captured and surrendered soldiers. In a tweet, the embassy described it as a 'disturbing incident and war crime.'

People living in Taliban-occupied areas say that they have committed unprovoked attacks on civilians and captured soldiers ( of the Afghan army). They also say that the Taliban have also asked people to make unmarried women the wives of their terrorists. This is a kind of sexual violence.

Significantly, the conflict between Afghan soldiers and the Taliban continues in Afghanistan. The Taliban is continuously occupying many areas of Afghanistan. The Taliban on Friday claimed to have captured Kandahar, Afghanistan's second largest city. After this announcement by the Taliban, only the capital Kabul and some other areas will remain in the hands of the Afghan government. A Taliban spokesman said in a tweet, "Kandahar has been completely conquered. Mujahideen have reached Shaheed Chowk in the city." A local civilian also backed the Taliban's claim, telling AFP news agency that government forces appeared to have backed from a military facility outside the city.
