KABUL - Every time we visit social media or interact with people in different provinces, we are sadly informed of the murder and suicide of women in different parts of Afghanistan. With the takeover of the Taliban, these killings have increased more than ever. The victims range from mothers with children to girls two or three years old. The main reason for each killing, according to Taliban officials, is unknown.

It can be said that the main reasons for the killings are poverty, unemployment, violence, psychological trauma, patriarchal mentality and the domination of fundamentalist ideas.

The Jinha Agency has been able to document 19 cases of murder of women. But we are sure that this statistic is unfortunately higher than the number that has not been covered by the media or due to the obscene customs and traditions of the society.

On the other hand, all these murders, all their killers escaped from the murder scene, and the Taliban regime, because they are very anti-woman, did not pursue them at all. According to statistics, these murders are increasing day by day.
