The United Nations Security Council (UNSC) has called on the Taliban to work for human rights on Afghan soil. The message was also given to the Taliban that the right of girls to education and work should be protected there. The message is also given to the Taliban to use women and adolescents appropriately.
The Taliban, however, has asked Afghan government officials to join the work. Even before the capture of Kabul, the Taliban claimed that there was nothing to panic about if they seized power. The rights of government employees will not be taken away. The Taliban regime also demanded more rights for women.
Although in reality the opposite picture was seen. Last week, the Taliban banned some female bankers from working in Kandahar. Pictures of girls on city streets have been reportedly destroyed since Kabul fell to the Taliban. Discussions have already begun on all these behaviors of the Taliban. “The Taliban must keep its promise to give girls the right to work and go to school,” said Rupert Colville, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
