Najibullah Alikhil daughter: On Friday, July 16, the daughter of the Afghanistan ambassador to Pakistan has allegedly abducted and severely tortured on her way home.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Afghanistan, the identities of the abductors is not known yet. Silsila Alikhil, the daughter of the Afghan ambassador in Pakistan Najibullah Alikhil is reportedly in hospital under medical care after being released by the abductors. She has swellings over several parts of her body.
The 27-year-old woman went missing on Friday around 2:30 pm near Rana Market. According to reports, her phone and shoes are still missing.
The ministry further said that it strongly condemns the heinous act and has expressed its deep concern over the safety of its diplomats, staff members, and their families in Pakistan. After the incident, the Afghan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs called on the government of Pakistan to ensure the safety of the Afghanistan embassy, and the immunity of their diplomats and their families according to the international treaties and conventions.
The ministry added that while it is following the matter with Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, it also urges the government of Pakistan to identify and prosecute the perpetrators of the crime as soon as possible.
The foreign minister of Afghanistan expressed his concern when Pakistan interior minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed claimed that India’s spy agency was involved in the abduction of the Afghan envoy’s daughter in Islamabad. He further added that such “unprofessional remarks” could hamper their bilateral relations.
Taliban Demands Girls Above 15, Widows Under 45 To Be Married To Their Fighters
According to reports, the militant insurgency group Taliban has issued a statement ordering the local religious leader of Afghanistan to deliver them, girls, over 15 and widows under the age of 45. These women would reportedly be taken to Waziristan in Pakistan, where they will be converted to Islam and married to their fighters.
After the US and NATO troops have completed their pullout from Afghanistan, the Taliban are enforcing their version of Islamic law in the country. Recently, the women in Afghanistan’s Takhar were reportedly told to not step out of their homes and men of the area were asked to grow beards and the terrorist organisation even set dowry regulations for girls.
Previously, before the US troop entered Afghanistan, women of the country were banned from school and were not allowed to work outside their homes or leave their houses without a male escort. Those who violated these rules were publically shamed, humiliated, and were beaten up by the Taliban’s religious police.
