7 more dead in chaos near Kabul airport: Reports

Published Date:

Around seven Afghans died in the recent chaos near Kabul airport. This comes soon after the Taliban took control of the war-ravaged country Afghanistan.

The US and its allies have been struggling to cope with thousands of foreign nationals and Afghans who have been trying to flee the extremists’ rule on their soil, in the name of Sharia.

Sky News of Britain had on Saturday aired footage of at least three dead bodies covered in white tarpaulins outside the airport.

The US President Joe Biden has also said that the deadline could be extended for the airlifts. “I think we can get it done by then, but we’re going to make that judgment as we go.”

Since the day Taliban swept to power in Afghanistan, not even a single Afghan can believe the words that come out of these extremists’ mouth.

They have seized provincial capitals at lightning speed. They are posing with guns and weapons while sitting in the Afghan Parliament.

Although, the Taliban have vowed to respect women’s rights and ensure Afghanistan does not become a haven for terrorists but the world has little to believe in them.

Taliban and Afghan women’s rights

The treatment of women and imposing Sharia is a big issue under the rule of Taliban. They suppress women’s freedom and rights.

Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan largely remains calm as the Taliban patrol its streets. But many fear for their lives in the city.

On one hand, the U.S. national security adviser Jake Sullivan says that the U.S. and other governments will not simply take the Taliban at their word when it comes to women’s rights.

The European Union on the other hand, says that it is suspending development assistance to Afghanistan except boosting humanitarian aid.

Evacuation flights have also resumed after being suspended on Monday. Several thousands of people could be seen thronging the airport. Shocking scenes were also captured on video with many clinging to a plane as it took off and then fell to their deaths.

President Biden has defended his decision of ending America’s longest war. He blames the rapid Taliban takeover on Afghanistan’s Western-backed government and security forces.

Talks are on between the Taliban and several Afghan politicians. These deliberations majorly focus on how a Taliban-dominated government would operate given the changes in Afghanistan over the last 20 years.
