Terrified Afghan girl shares fears of 'dying slowly' as Taliban takes control


In the heartbreaking video, the tearful girl, whose identity remains unknown, voices her despair at the world’s treatment of her country. She says through her tears: “We don’t count because we were born in Afghanistan. I cannot help crying.

“No one cares about us. We will die slowly in history.” 

The emotional video was posted to Twitter on Friday by journalist, Masih Alinejad, just days before the Taliban successfully established their control over the country on Sunday.

Ms Alinejad said alongside the video: “My heart breaks for women of Afghanistan. The world has failed them. History will write this.”

However, now that the Taliban has cemented control of the Afghan capital Kabul, the future for Afghan women remains uncertain.

Earlier this year, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said that the group would make provisions that would “enable women to contribute to the country in a peaceful and protected environment”.

But Sky News reports that earlier this month, Taliban fighters ordered nine women working at a bank in Kandahar to leave their job and return to their homes.

And according to the Mail, local news reports say Taliban men are already going door-to-door and forcibly marrying girls as young as 12.

On Friday, United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said in a statement that he was “deeply disturbed by early indications that the Taliban are imposing severe restrictions on human rights, particularly targeting women and journalists”.

He added: “It is particularly heartbreaking to see reports of the hard-won rights of Afghan girls and women being ripped away from them.”
