European Parliament President Roberta Metsola has complained about the increasing oppression of women in Afghanistan.
There are reports suggesting the world will soon witness a return to public executions, stoning, flogging and punitive amputations, the top politician said in Strasbourg on Monday.
In Afghanistan, women are increasingly being pushed out of public life and denied access to public spaces.
Despite promises to protect women’s rights, progress is reversed. “The Taliban want women to be invisible. We want them to thrive,” Metsola said, pledged support to the people of Afghanistan. (dpa)
