…it’s also been a hundred or a hundred and more days of waking up from utterly disturbing dreams, every morning. Desperately lifting a heavy heart and pushing it through in the midst of despair, is an act of hope.

"We keep romanticising the Taliban, like the Taliban are some semi-virtuous, rural movement. This is a transnational terrorist organisation that is interconnected with others and it's a creature of support from Pakistan's ISI" Fmr US National Security Advisor @LTGHRMcMaster

What happens in Afghanistan doesn’t stay in Afghanistan. #GenderApartheid
Birmingham, Alum Rock Road. Taliban supporters openly flying the flag of the only government in the world to bar girls from secondary education and women from most work outside healthcare and education. Extremely disturbing

This argument: “sanctions stops Afghanistan from development” is getting repetitive and slowly harmful at this point. That’s what the Taliban want to hear. Yes, Afghans don’t have food & that’s mainly because they don’t have rights.Many jobs don’t exist because of the Taliban…

2. Women are banned from employment because of the Taliban. Afghanistan is under sanctions because of the Taliban. Our people are suffering because of the Taliban. It’s not the other way around.

“We have lost our beautiful Afghanistan for now, but it is still my home. Many of my friends and extended family members are still in Kabul Jan, and more importantly, so is my heart. And it is broken.” - a beautiful piece from the amazing @FereshtaAbbasi thehill.com/opinion/internat…

زنان در افغانستان از زمان بازگشت طالبان به قدرت، در کمتر از یک سال با هجوم خشونت و نقض حقوق بشر مواجه شده‌اند و بر اساس یک گزارش جدید سازمان عفو بین‌الملل گستره، بزرگی و شدت نقضِ ماه به ماه این خشونت در حال افزایش است.

The brilliant @FereshtaAbbasi: “Kabul Jan has witnessed four decades of conflict. It is a burial site for thousands killed by car bombs, including many I knew. But it is also the city that, in the early years of this century, gave me and many others…”♥️ thehill.com/opinion/internat…

This is courage and utter desperation. These Afghan women are protesting for the most basic rights in the knowledge that those women who protested before then have been detained & mistreated. @trussliz the Uk needs to be leading the response to this.

What use, you might ask, are these treaties if the Taliban can violate them without consequences? But we cannot afford to give up on them. We must demand more from them because there are few other options. rukhshana.com/en/the-taliban…

It’s been a disastrous year for human rights in Afghanistan, especially for women and girls. Afghans are wondering what the world will do to defend their rights. So far the answer has been not much.

Translated literally, Jan means “soul,” and it’s reserved for the living beings we most love and respect. It’s not a word used to describe places, with one exception: Afghanistan’s capital is known as Kabul Jan. My heart is in and with Kabul jan today. 💔 thehill.com/opinion/internat…

ممنون و مدیون شما می مانیم. شما که هر روز امید می آفرینید بی هیچ توقع و امید پاداش. شما که پشتوانهء‌ یک آینده بهتر برای افغانستانید. شما که بر خلاف حاکمانی که قتل، ویرانی و جهل آورده اند، هر روز زنده گی، امید و روشنایی هدیه می کنید. در برابر بزرگی تان، هر روز کم می آورم.

به معلمانی می اندیشم که با سلطه ستم گران جاهل نیز به کار و رسالت خویش دوام دادند و برای کودکان و نوجوانان بی شمار سواد و امید هدیه می کنند. به مادران و پدرانی می اندیشم که در میانهء‌ این تاریکی به کودکان خود مهر،‌ آزادی خواهی و برابری می آموزند.

به همه کارکنان صحی زن و مرد متعهد در افغانستان می اندیشم که در یک سال دشوار گذشته در گوشه گوشهء افغانستان در خدمت آسیب پذیر ترین مردم سرزمین خود بودند. از کودکان قطحی زده و بیمار مراقبت کردند. به یاری سالخوردگان شتافتند. با کمترین امکانات، جان های بسیاری را نجات دادند
