Afghanistan

    "Taliban treat women worse than they treat animals.  In fact, even as Taliban declare the keeping of caged birds and animals illegal, they imprison Afghan women within four walls of their own houses.  Women have no importance in Taliban eyes unless they are occupied producing children, satisfying male sexual needs or attending to the drudgery of daily housework.
    Jehadi fundamentalists such as Gulbbudin, Rabbani, Masood, Sayyaf, Khalili, Akbari, Mazari and their co-criminal Dostum have committed the most treacherous and filthy crimes against Afghan women.  And as more areas come under Taliban control, even if the number of rapes and murders perpetrated against women falls, Taliban restrictions-comparable to those from the middle ages-will continue to kill the spirit of our people while depriving them of a humane existence.  We consider Taliban more treacherous and ignorant than Jehadis.  According to our people, 'Jehadis were killing us with guns and swords but Taliban are killing us with cotton.'
