‘We can’t go back’ say women activists on Taliban Kunduz ‘hit list’

Marzia Rustami was hiding at a friend’s house when she heard that Taliban militants, now in control of her home city of Kunduz, were searching for her.

Within hours of capturing the city in northern Afghanistan, the Taliban recruited young children, asking them to point out the houses of government employees, NGO workers and especially women’s rights activists.

“The Taliban had a hit list of female activists,” said Ms Rustami, head of the Kunduz Women and Youth for Peace NGO, a women’s rights organisation, which included her name alongside “almost every active working woman in Kunduz.”

    Dear Justin… would you consider the acts and goals of the Taliban an example of misogyny? I mean they plan to go after any women who might be considered a women activist…. and will probably kill them.

    Yet, you feel that another example of misogyny is the Ford brothers. So much so you condemned Stephen Harper for associating himself with them this past weekend. Your quote, “What bothers me most is the misogyny.”

    So misogyny is a bad thing in your books right? Then why are you so forgiving all the Islamic bad guys who practice misogyny, but not the Ford brothers? Assuming that is even close to the truth.

    Is it because you are a Dhimmi? A bit on the Dim side? Truth hurts, doesn’t it?

    Q: Does she still self-identify as Muslim? If yes, then what is the point?

    Then pick up a gun and free yourself you stupid bint.
    In any event, you can’t stay in the west because your mere presence is hazardous to our health.
    Good luck!

    I am sure western feminists would love to comment or even condemn this sort of thing but then that would force the feministas to commit “cultural imperialism” a crime far worse than abandoning her afgani sisters to torture and death

      Western feminists are too busy whining about “rape culture” and looking for “microaggressions” to be bothered with the real world.
