An Afghan girl was brutally beaten by a Taliban commander for refusing sex. The girl also showed alleged bruises of her body in a video posted on social media, which went viral. The incident reportedly took place in Herat.
In the video being shared on Twitter the girl is seen crying on camera as she claims she was physically abused. She then showed marks of what appears to be the thrashing on her back, legs and other body parts.
This incident took place at a time when women have been fighting for their safety, freedom and rights under the new Taliban rule. Local girls and women have been fighting for their right to study, even though Taliban claim that nearly 75 per cent of girl students are not back in local schools.
