Since the establishment of the Taliban government in Afghanistan, all international funds, including the central bank, were frozen, due to which the country is facing a severe financial crisis and the country has poverty camps. People have been forced to sell their daughters.
Due to all this situation, there has been an increase in the trend of Afghan girls running away from home and getting married. Women are suffering from severe insecurity regarding their future.
It should be noted that the Taliban established a government in Afghanistan on August 15 last year, and since then secondary education for girls, women’s jobs and travel without a mahram have been banned.
