Since the occupation of Kabul, the Taliban have repeatedly called for the protection of women’s rights under Sharia law. But the gap between what the Taliban say and their actions is proving time and time again. The women working in different professions of that country are sharing their experiences through the net. Seeing that, the question arises as to how sincere the Taliban are in keeping their promises.
Recently a video has spread on the net. There is a woman wearing hijab. He is also showing his office identity card. “Our lives are in crisis,” says Shabnam Dauran, a popular newscaster in the country. She worked for a government news channel for six years. She complained that the authorities were not allowing her to enter the office recently. “I did not give up hope,” she said in the video. “I Went to the office too. But bad luck. I was not allowed to enter even after showing my office identity card after wearing hijab.”
This is the stark reality of women rights “within Islamic law”. Meet @shabnamdawran, TV presenter turned away by Taliban as she tried to work today. Despite wearing a hijab & carrying correct ID, she was told: “The regime has changed. You are not allowed in here. Go home”. pic.twitter.com/y1imIAM6Yp

However, Shabnam’s male colleagues have been able to join the work with the same identity card. Shabnam said, “All my male colleagues who have identity cards have been allowed to enter the office. But I was told the system had changed. So I can’t work anymore. She then appealed to the world, “Please help us by asking those who are listening to me. Our lives are in danger. “
