An Iranian journalist and global women’s rights activist has a message from the increasingly oppressed women of Afghanistan to the people of the United States and the Biden administration: Do not forget about us.
Masih Alinejad told “The Story” Monday that conditions for Afghans continue to deteriorate under the radical Islamic Taliban government, which has banned observance of any other religion but Islam and most recently ordered the beheading of all store mannequins in relation to Islamic laws against idol worship.
“We, the people of Afghanistan and Iran, we share the pain. We experienced this,” Alinejad said.
“In reality in Afghanistan and Iran under Sharia law, if you don’t want to be a Muslim anymore, if you criticize the prophet (Mohammed), if you criticize the Islamic law and for the crime of apostasy and blasphemy, you will be beheaded.”
