Situation of Afghan Women Now
In relation to the current situation of Afghan women, these pictures have been received by me, it is very unfortunate that the current government or the Taliban group allow such oppression of Afghan women and deprived them of their individual and social rights, even count them intellectual and sexual slaves.
The world has given women and girls basic rights and freedom of thought and belief, and this group has been more vulnerable than other groups in the society.
Unfortunately, over the past twenty years, Afghan girls have become victims of the illegitimate demands of misogynists and radical Islamists, while in Islam, women’s rights have been clearly stated and depriving them of their freedom or depriving them of education is condemned and disrespectful.
And the emphasis of Islam is on the acquisition of knowledge and science, here are some Hadiths that are related to women’s rights from the perspective of Islam:
“seeking knowledge is the duty of every Muslim” means an obligation that has been prescribed by the Shariah.
Although the word “Muslim” is used in the masculine form, it means the gender of Muslim, which also includes women.
Below is the meaning of one of the correct Hadiths:
One who goes out in search of knowledge is like a Mujahid in the path of God. Seeking knowledge is obligatory for every Muslim, and perhaps a believer in seeking knowledge leaves his home and does not return, unless he is forgiven.
But what is the function and action of the Taliban and other terrorist groups?
Except for extremism, anti-religion, and misogyny, they have no peaceful and knowledge-oriented message.
We hope that the people of Afghanistan, especially the men of Afghanistan, will wake up from their slumber and get rid of the idea of slavery.
