Taliban promises to find government seats for women in future: Zabihullah Mujahid

Kabul/UNI/Sputnik/IBNS: The Afghan government will include women in the future, said Taliban Spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid at a harrowing time for the South Asian nation.

On Tuesday, the Taliban announced the interim government of Afghanistan that includes no female ministers.

"This government is interim. We will have posts for women with respect for the Sharia laws. This is a start, but we will find seats for women. They can be a part of the government. This will be the second stage," Mujahid told the BFMTV broadcaster late Wednesday.

On Wednesday, residents of Kabul went to a protest in the Dashte Barchi area in the western part of Kabul, demanding to ensure the participation of women in governing the country.

For the older generations having witnessed the terrorist group's earlier rule, trusting the words of the Taliban spokesperson might be a lot to ask, as the previous rule included bans on television and music and also restricted women within the confines of one's abode.

The Taliban's announcement of including people on FBI's most-wanted list like Sirajuddin Haqqani as the country's Interior Minister further adds to the vacuum of confidence.

The U.S State Department in a recent statement expressed concerns over employing zero women and people with negative track records and the overpowering presence of Taliban, while also suggesting that the administration would be reviewed based on its actions.
