The Supreme National Resistance Council for the Salvation of Afghanistan, consisting of former jihadi leaders and ethnic politicians in exile, asked the international community to provide the basis for the formation of a new political system in Afghanistan
In a statement issued on Sunday, January 1, this council condemned the Taliban’s newest decrees regarding women, asking the international community to press the Taliban and their sponsors to convince them to give in to the formation of a new political system.
This council suggests that the formation of a new government will prevent the development of extremism, misogyny, oppression and thousands of other human crimes in Afghanistan.
“Any restriction of human rights by the Taliban on citizens, specifically girls and women of Afghanistan, means open discrimination, gender apartheid, spread of extremism, isolation of Afghanistan in the international arena and support for terrorism,” the statement issued by this council reads.
Based on the declaration issued by the exiled jihadi leaders and prominent politicians, it is impossible to achieve a legitimate government and fundamental rights of citizens, especially women, to ensure stability and prevent the growth of terrorism in the presence of the Taliban.
“Woman is defined as a sexual slave (the devil’s rope) from the Taliban’s perspective, and this is a complete explanation for the superficial optimism of the international community regarding the change in the Taliban’s approach,” the statement detailed.
In the last two weeks, the Taliban banned women from studying and working in domestic and foreign NGOs.
