A nightmare has befallen a woman who escaped the war-torn country after the Taliban took complete control of Afghanistan, as Afghan women fear for their lives and freedom.
The extremist group has now issued a public death sentence for an Afghan woman who left the country four years ago after divorcing her husband after discovering he was supposedly a Taliban member.
Hayat (name changed) now lives in New Delhi with her two daughters after settling in India. Her other two girls, on the other hand, were supposedly sold to the Taliban by her husband.
Hayat claims she now fears returning to Afghanistan because the Taliban has issued a death warrant for her.
Hayat, who works as a gym trainer in Delhi, has created a house for herself and her two girls. In an interview with IANS, Hayat expressed her anguish and revealed that her husband had previously sold two of her daughters to the Taliban.
Her other two girls, ages 13 and 14, reside with her.
She claimed she found out her husband was a Taliban member after they married. “My spouse attempted to knife me four times, and the marks are still visible on my head, neck, and fingers,” Hayat told IANS.
“I don’t know anything about my other two daughters who were sold to the Taliban. After my husband threatened to sell my other two girls, I was forced to flee Afghanistan, fearing for my life “According to the report, Hayat added.
When asked if she would wish to return to Afghanistan, Hayat stated categorically that she will never return. “A ‘death warrant’ has been issued for me by the Taliban. They’re also going to take my other two girls. ‘Money has been paid to buy the youngsters, and now they are ours,’ the terrorist group declared. I can’t go back to Afghanistan because I’m afraid for my girls’ safety “Hayat remarked.
When asked how she managed to flee Afghanistan, she replied, “At the time, Afghanistan had not been captured by the Taliban, so I sought for a visa. I had previously visited India and had some understanding of the country. Many people had aided me greatly at the time.”
When asked how she learned Hindi, she said she was so fond of it that she learned it through watching Bollywood movies.
“Today Afghanistan is entirely in shambles,” she continued, “and I am content to stay in India, but I have yet to make my refugee card.”
“We need the Indian government’s cooperation since other Afghans are afraid to speak out against the Taliban in front of the media, which is why I am speaking on their behalf.”
“My father, who lives in Iraq, has received many letters threatening to summon me back to Afghanistan, and even the Taliban has informed him that they have tracked my location,” she claimed.
Hayat claimed that she wanted to divorce her spouse, which she claimed was difficult in Afghanistan. Her father and other family members have been receiving death threats for years, but she managed to divorce her husband and go to India with her two girls, leaving everything behind.
