Vienna: Austrian city of Vienna recently witnessed Afghanistan diaspora members, including women associated with Afghan diaspora organizations AKIS (Afghanische Kultur, Integration und Solidaritat), staging a protest against the Taliban rulers of the South Asian country.

The demonstrators protested against the treatment of the Taliban against women and children in the country since coming to power in 2021.

On Friday (local Time), many prominent Afghan women diaspora members, including Tamana Ayoubi, Fariba Sadig, Saleh Wasel, and Ali Baqeri, protested at the entrance of the UN building in Vienna, reports ANI.

Demonstrators raised slogans against the Taliban and also the interference of Pakistan in Afghanistan's affairs.

They also spoke about the inhumane way Pakistan treats Afghan Refugees, especially women and children. Around 100 Afghan women participated in this demonstration. At the end of the protest, they also submitted a memorandum to UN authorities, urging all member states to act decisively on this issue, reports ANI.

The Taliban snatched power in Afghanistan in 2021 after the fall of the former government.

The group has imposed several restrictions against women, specially depriving them of education, since they came to power.
