Kabul, Wednesday, May 22, 2013: A group of Mullah Omar’s supporters and students of faculty of Islamic studies of Kabul university have demonstrated against women rights and approval of law on the Elimination of Violence Against Women (EVAW). Demonstrators were carrying Taliban flag chanting anti-democracy and women rights slogans. This demonstration was held in Kabul while rights organizations such as Hazara Women International have asked authorities to properly insure the safety and the rights of women in Afghanistan.
In the past ten years, the Ulama Council has been the other side of the Taliban coin. Their combined denouncement of women and proclamation against freedom of information continue to squelch the voices of truth.
