United Nations Assistant Mission in Afghanistan has expressed concern over the disappearance of two female activists in Kabul and has asked the Taliban to disclose their whereabouts.

The concern was expressed in a statement released on the Twitter page of UNAMA on Saturday, January 22, 2022.

“The UN shares growing concerns disappearance of two Afghan women activists, Tamana Zaryabi Paryani & Parawana Ibrahimkhel, reportedly abducted from their homes overnight Wednesday. We urge the Taliban to provide information on their whereabouts & to protect the rights of all Afghans,” UNAMA tweeted.

Paryani along with her three sisters and Ibrahimkhel were reportedly taken from their homes and were taken to unknown places.

The Interior Ministry of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan denied the women being detained by the Taliban and had accused the women of making false claims so that they seek asylum abroad.
