Fear of Taliban: Forced marriage of women outside Kabul airport- the reason will be shocking- There is a big difference between the words and deeds of the Taliban. Almost every country in the world is making these allegations. However, the Taliban fighters themselves are denying the claims of their commanders with their actions. Fears of the Taliban regime continue to flee Afghanistan. A new report says several women were forced to marry just outside Kabul airport to make them eligible for rescue.

A CNN report quoting US officials has expressed concern over this trend. In one of the rescue centers in the United Arab Emirates, it is learned that some families of Afghan women forced them to marry to escape the Taliban.

The families also gave money to some men who married their girls. Girls were married to men who were qualified to leave Kabul. The shocking measures taken by Afghans, especially among women, paint a picture of extreme desperation. Women here fear the extreme level of persecution at the hands of the Taliban.

The CNN report said that such exit measures from Afghanistan have raised alarm bells by US officials in the United Arab Emirates. US diplomats are also expected to help the UAE identify cases where Afghan women are at risk of human trafficking. The report said that the US State Department has indicated that it will coordinate with the Department of Homeland Security and Defense on this.

US troops made their final rescue from Afghanistan on the night of August 30, marking the end of 20 years of the Afghan war that ended the previous Taliban regime. The Taliban, which has declared victory since the US exit, has reminded the then Taliban regime that women lacked basic human rights.

The Taliban have banned the travel of women who are not accompanied by male family members. Some private groups helping Afghans flee said they were advising people not to attempt to reach the country’s borders unless they knew the Taliban were chasing them.
