The Taliban forces fired shots into the air to disperse around two dozen women protesters who were marching in front of the Iranian Embassy in Kabul this noon, September 29, supporting Iran’s nationwide protests.
The protesters chanted, “Iran has risen, now it’s our turn” and “Women, life, freedom”.
“Afghan and Iranian women do not accept captivity,” one of the placards read.
A protester, who asked to remain anonymous, said the Taliban use Islam and Hadiths as a tool.
The protester said that in addition to their lack of access to work and education, women and girls are even deprived of their basic rights.
The protest in Iran has entered its 13th day today.
Nationwide protests in Iran started with the murder of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini who was allegedly killed by the Iranian morality police.
The Taliban have violently crushed female protests in the past year.
They have detained and assaulted many protesters since they regained power in August last year.
