The first woman pilot in the Afghan air force, Niloofar Rahmani, said the Taliban, who seized Afghanistan, will “hurt the women most” in the country
The first woman pilot in the Afghan air force warned against Taliban’s assurance on women’s rights, saying the world will soon witness the stoning of “a woman in Kabul stadium” for no reason at all.
Niloofar Rahmani, the former Afghan air force pilot, said the Taliban, who seized Afghanistan, will “hurt the women most” in the country.
“The world will be the witness of the Taliban. They are going to stone a woman in a Kabul stadium again for nothing,” Niloofar Rahmani was quoted as saying by Fox News.
“Unfortunately, my family is still there. And since I have heard what happened in Afghanistan, I cannot sleep, I cannot get my mind together, I am so in fear for their security. And, of course, it hasn’t been only about me,” Rahmani said.
29-year-old Niloofar Rahmani said her “family and parents are in danger” as they have been targeted by Taliban. She said the Taliban has marked them for supporting her throughout her career. The former Afghan air force pilot said she had been receiving “death threats since 2013” from the Taliban.
