Hardly a week after the Taliban took over complete control in Afghanistan, they have issued a public death decree for an Afghan woman, who had left the war-ravaged country four years ago and is now settled in India. She had left her husband after she found that he was an active member of the Taliban.

She shared her plight with reporters saying that she had come to know that her husband was a part of the after her marriage. “My husband tried to stab me four times. The scars are still visible on my head, neck and fingers.”

“I do not have information about my other daughters who have been sold off to the Taliban. My husband told me that he would sell my other daughters as well, after which I fled Afghanistan, fearing for my life,” Hayat said.

Asked if she would like to return to her native country, Hayat said a categorical “no”. “The have issued a ‘death warrant’ for me. They will take away my other daughters as well. The terrorist group has said they have paid to buy the children, ‘now they are ours’. I can’t return to Afghanistan, fearing a threat to my daughters’ lives,” Hayat said.

Asked how she managed to escape from Afghanistan, she said, “At the time, the had yet to capture the whole of Afghanistan. I applied for a visa. Before that, I had visited India once; so I had some knowledge of this place. Many people had helped me a lot back then.”

Asked how she learnt to speak Hindi, she replied that she was fond of talking in Hindi that she learnt by watching films.

She said, “Today Afghanistan is in a shambles. I am happy staying in India but I have yet to make my card.”

“We need the help of the Indian government as other Afghan people shy away from coming before the media to raise their voice against the that’s why I am talking on behalf of them.”

She said, “My father, who lives in Iraq, has received multiple letters threatening him to call me back to Afghanistan, even the has been telling him that they have traced my location.”

Hayat said that she wanted to divorce her husband which was not easy in Afghanistan. Her father and other family members have been receiving continuous death threats, but leaving everything behind she managed to escape from her husband and successfully fled to India with two of her daughters.
