By stating the Taliban had evolved, General Sir Nick Carter has been accused of ‘gaslighting Afghan women.’
General Sir Nick Carter, a Tory MP, has been chastised by Nus Ghani for stating that the Taliban have evolved.
In comments insisting that the Taliban had reformed, Tory MP Nus Ghani has accused General Sir Nick Carter of “essentially gaslighting 19 million Afghan women.” On Saturday, the final evacuation flight from Kabul was slammed.
When questioned by LBC news host Iain Dale if General Sir Nick Carter’s statement that the Taliban “is not the Taliban of 20 years ago” surprised him, he said no.
It’s a “kick in the stomach,” according to Nus Ghani.
“It’s not just surprising; it’s a punch in the stomach to be honest,” she told LBC News.
“You’re essentially gaslighting 90 million Afghan women, let alone all of Afghanistan’s minorities, who are now facing a nightmare.
Tobias Ellwood says that once UK forces leave Kabul, there will be “additional terrorist attacks.”
“The Taliban have not, and will not, change.”
“They have to be as pure as possible in their understanding of an Islamic state, or they would lose power,” Nus Ghani continued, “and the Taliban’s overarching purpose, which is a never-ending battle against infidels and the establishment of a caliphate, has not changed.”
“So that’s basically you, me, and everyone else who’s listening to your show.
“The Taliban have not changed; they have already sent signals to regional leaders stating that if your daughter is over the age of 14, she cannot attend school and must instead marry a Taliban fighter.”
“We already hear about institutions becoming segregated,” she continued, “and the subject of female education isn’t a side issue.”
“It tells you everything you need to know about how safe that country will be, whether it’s economic or regular security, and how they’ll treat their own men, women, and children.
“I shudder to contemplate what they’ll do to the rest of the globe if they export their brand of Islamist extremism.”
