Taliban: ‘We Have the Right to Detain the Regime’s Opponents’

Kabul – The Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told AFP that they had the right to detain and imprison opponents or those who violate the law.

Mujahid made the remarks after a bunch of women protesters have claimed that two of their active members have been detained by the Taliban and are in an unknown situation.

“No one should create chaos and disturb the system,” Mujahid told AFP.

On the other hand, Zabihulla has once again denied the Taliban’s arrest of Tamana Zaryab Paryani and Parwana Ibrahimkhel, two women protesters in Kabul.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         However, the protesting women insist that two of their active members were arrested by Taliban forces a few nights ago.

The United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) has also expressed concern over the disappearance of Tamana Zaryab Paryani and Parwana Ibrahimkhel.

Earlier, a video of Tamana was posted on social media claiming that the Taliban wanted to arrest her.

Since the Taliban took control of the country, women have staged widespread and continuous protests against the restrictions and deprivation of girls and women from going to schools, universities, and government offices, emphasizing that they will not stop protesting until their demands are met.
