“A woman cannot be a minister. It is as if I put a weight on her neck that she cannot bear. It is not necessary for women to be in the government, they have to have children ”. Thus Taliban spokesman Sayed Zekrullah Hashim, responding in an interview to the Afghan network Tolo News to a question about the new exclusively male executive.

“The four women protesting in the streets do not represent the women of Afghanistan. The women of Afghanistan are those who give children to the people of Afghanistan, who educate them according to Islamic values ​​”, continued the spokesman for the self-styled Koranic students.

“In the last 20 years, whatever this media has said – added Hashimi, responding to the Tolo News interviewer -, what have the United States and its puppet government done in Afghanistan if not to allow office prostitution?”.
