The growing sexual abuse accusations involving Taliban insurgents have sparked furor among the Taliban ranks as they call it a move aimed at defaming the group’s armed efforts.

The latest accusation against the group has emerged from southern Helmand province of Afghanistan suggesting a group of Taliban insurgents were arrested after intruding into a house in Marjah district.

The reports claim that the Taliban insurgents had stormed into the house to sexually abuse the family.

However, the Taliban group spokesman Qari Yousuf Ahmadi, reacted at the reports and said the enemies of the group are attempting to defame them as they are in panic and have been defeated despite receiving support from the US forces in the ground and from the air.

He also pointed out towards the accusations emerged from southern Uruzgan province of Afghanistan suggesting the abuse of a young boy by the Taliban insurgents in Chora district.

This comes as the Taliban insurgents are often accused of abusing the young men among their ranks and numerous such reports have emerged suggesting the rape of the suicide bombers before they are sent for the attacks as claimed by the Afghan intelligence.

However, incidents involving Taliban insurgents storming into a house to abuse a family have rarely been reported.
