Taliban kill woman for not wearing burqa on same day they vow to honor women’s rights

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.”

Emerald Robinson said “The same people who were flying a rainbow flag two months ago in Kabul are now asking the Taliban to be “inclusive” and “include women.”

And this photoshopped meme.
