According to a report from the NY Post “Taliban fighters shot and killed a woman for not wearing a burqa in Afghanistan on Tuesday — the same day the group pledged to usher in a new inclusive era in the country that honors “women’s rights.”
Per the report:
A photo emerged of a woman in Takhar province lying in a pool of blood, with loved ones crouched around her, after she was killed by insurgents for being in public without a head covering, according to Fox News.
The killing came amid the group’s version of a charm offensive, after its swift takeover of the country in the absence of US troops, who had been propping up allied military groups since shortly after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.”
Earlier this week, Ned Price, a Biden state department spokesperson was mocked on Twitter for calling on the Taliban to form a “united, inclusive and representative” government “including with the full and meaningful participation of women.”
The State Department calls on the Taliban to form an “inclusive and representative government.”
This is not a Babylon Bee skit. It’s a real thing that just happened.
