The world’s fears about the treatment of women under the Taliban regime are beginning to come true. Taliban leaders who talk about giving equal rights to women openly insult them. Meanwhile, Qatar has asked the Taliban to respect women’s rights. Qatar has had a lot of pressure on the Taliban. In such a situation, it is expected that the Taliban will at least listen to him.
Given example of Muslim countries
Qatar’s foreign minister said on Monday that the Taliban have been asked to respect women’s rights. For this, the example of many such Muslim countries was given where women have an active role in the society. Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdul Rahman Al Thani was speaking at a joint press conference with his French counterpart Jean Vis Le Drian.
‘France will keep pressing’
At the same time, Jean has said that many French citizens are trapped in Afghanistan and Qatar’s help is being sought to rescue them. He also said that ‘the response we have seen from Kabul so far has not been up to our expectations’. He said France and the rest of the international community would continue to pressure the Taliban to not harbor terrorists, allow humanitarian aid, and protect women’s rights, among other demands.
Indonesia also demanded
The foreign minister of Indonesia, the world’s largest Muslim population, also urged the Taliban on Thursday to respect women’s rights and not allow Afghanistan to become a breeding ground for extremist activities. Marsudi and her Australian counterpart Marise Payne urged the Taliban to respect human rights, especially those of women and girls. Indonesia has faced several terror attacks since 2002. An attack on the island of Bali in 2002 killed 202 people, mostly foreigners, including 88 Australians.
