Afghan protesting women: The silence of the world towards women is shameful

A group of female protestors known as A Gleam of Hope for Afghanistan, today accused the world of shameful silence towards Afghan women by holding a protest meeting under the title of “will” in a closed place. They said that Afghan women have become victims of gender discrimination in front of the eyes of other nations and governments.
In this protest meeting, they have published a resolution under the title of the will of protesting women of Gleam of Hope Organization for Afghanistan, for human rights activists, the United Nations and world powers.
These women say: “The Taliban have not been committed to their commitments to the international community and are putting more pressure on the Afghan people every day.”

They emphasize that the Taliban closed the school gates to girls and arrested, threatened and killed protesting women. The members of Gleam of Hope for Afghanistan Organization have claimed that after the protest of the women’s team of this organization, the Taliban are trying to arrest and imprison the members of the organization. According to them, more than 50% of the protesting women of Gleam of Hope for Afghanistan Organization have been forced to leave the country and those who are present in the country are living secretly and in fear.
“Our last message to the world is that your shameful silence towards the women of Afghanistan and the defenseless people of this country will be recorded in the political history of the world and the next generation will study this silence.”

They have also said that instead of exerting political and diplomatic pressure on the Taliban, the world has been soft and even a number of countries have unofficially recognized this group.
“We Afghan women have become victims of gender discrimination in front of the eyes of other nations and governments of the world, and this is our last message to you people and world powers to rescue Afghan women from this darkness and genocide.”

While, Recently women’s street demonstrations have been moved to closed places due to violence and arrests of women by the Taliban.
