According to media reports, although the Taliban are constantly speaking out in favor of women’s rights, their stance hardly changes.

It was also learned that the Taliban are forcing people to cook for them, which shows aggression.
Ayoubi added that the Taliban are forcing some families to marry off their young daughters to the cadres.
