Taliban asks Moulanas for a list of girls above 15 and widow under 45 to be married.The Taliban is gradually gaining strength across Afghanistan. Most of Afghanistan’s cities are now under Taliban control. The Taliban Cultural Commission recently issued a directive to religious leaders in those cities. Preparations are being made to marry Taliban fighters. Brides must be young above 15 years of age. In case of widow, she must be under 45 years of age. They will be married and taken to Waziristan, Pakistan. Everyone there has to convert to Islam. ‘

The news has caused a stir in the international media. The Taliban have already taken control of several areas bordering Iran, Pakistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan.

Shortly after the withdrawal of US and NATO forces from the country, the Taliban announced that they were in control of 80 percent of the country. The Taliban regime has already started there. In the Takhar region of Afghanistan, women are not allowed to leave their homes without their husbands. Fatwa has been issued that only men can earn money.

This is what Afghanistan looked like even before the US intervention in 2001. Women were not allowed to go to school there. Working outside or leaving the house was also a kind of closure. None of them could get out of the house except their male companions. If they broke the rules, the Taliban religious police would torture and punish them in front of everyone.

The country’s guardians are trembling with fear at the current direction of the Taliban. They fear that this time the Taliban militants will forcibly take away the young women from the house. Then keep them as servants. “We are disappointed with the day the Taliban took power,” said one unnamed person. I can’t even speak loudly at home. Can’t hear the song. Can’t send women to Friday market. The Taliban have said, how can a 18-year-old unmarried girl stay at home? It is a sin. They have to get married. “
