RASC News Agency: In Takhar province, the Taliban group has recently detained a female protester, continuing a series of arrests targeting women demonstrators across the nation. Sources informed the media on Friday, December 9th, that the female protester had been apprehended a week earlier by Taliban group intelligence in the city of Taluqan, the provincial capital of Takhar. Currently, there is no available information regarding her fate.
The detained female protester was identified by sources as Nabila Rahimi, arrested by Taliban group intelligence. They noted that she was one of the courageous women protesting against the stringent restrictions imposed by the Taliban group on women. Earlier, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) expressed concern about the arbitrary detention of women protesters by the Taliban faction. The UNAMA office reported that within a month, the Taliban group had detained only four female protesters from Kabul province.
This development occurs as, following the Taliban faction’s assumption of power, the group has been arresting women protesters and women’s rights activists in various provinces. Reports indicate that these women are presently held in Taliban Group’s prisons, where they endure torture, lack access to legal representation, and are deprived of proper hygiene facilities, leading to a decline in their physical, mental, and emotional well-being or in some cases suicide.
It is crucial to highlight that since the Taliban faction took control of the country, women and girls have encountered severe violence from the group and have been systematically marginalized.
