Will the Islamic Organization Reimpose Oppressive Laws in Afghanistan?
People in Afghanistan fear the oppressive rule of the Taliban in the country after the Islamic organization took power in their hands. During their rule 20 years back, the lives of people especially women became miserable in Afghanistan. As a result, several people decided to flee the country and take shelter in safer regions. However, a lot of people also lost their lives while boarding flights from Kabul airport. On the other hand, experts fear that their rule will bring back all the oppressive laws in the country that used to prevail 20 years ago. The militant group follows typical Islamic laws.
Taliban is More Clear-Headed and Rational Now: China
Chinese authorities believe that the Taliban is quite different now as they were 20 years back. They are more clear-headed and rational now as compared to their rule in the 1990s. Besides that, they will form an inclusive government that supports moderate Islamic laws. When asked about implementing harsh laws in the country; Shaheen claimed that international statements regarding women are incorrect. They will allow women to work and educate themselves but within some boundaries. If they are journalists, they can continue their work as usual. Moreover, if they are teachers, they are allowed to teach.
China will Play a Very Important Role
Shaheen claimed that China is a big country with a well-developed economy. He further stated that Chinese officials will help the Taliban in building a better Afghanistan.
