Rina Amiri, the US Special Envoy for Afghan Women, described the violent behavior of the Taliban against female demonstrators in connection with the victims of the Kaj Educational Center as “barbarity” and a sign of “weakness and fear” of the Taliban.
In a tweet Saturday, she said: “Such brutality against grieving mothers demonstrates weakness & fear, not power & authority.”
By republishing the message of UNAMA, Amiri added any claim to credible governance must be met with measures to protect the most vulnerable, not suppress and silence their appeals for protection through violence and intimidation.
Earlier, UNAMA had emphasized that the Taliban should stop using weapons to prevent peaceful protests.
Dozens of women and girls marched in Kabul Saturday in protest of Friday’s suicide attack at Kaj Educational Center, which was suppressed by the Taliban.
Following a suicide bombing at Kaj Educational Center in the west of Kabul on Friday, scores of students were killed and injured.
