A women activist, Nargis Sadaat claims to be beaten by the Taliban fighters as they protested for their rights and share in the incoming government in Kabul on Saturday, September 04.
Women activists and the protesters said they wanted to protest in front of the gate of the Presidential Palace (ARG), but members of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan did not allow them to.
Eyewitnesses said that the women had gathered in front of the Ministry of Defense and the Taliban fighters wanted to talk with them but the women insisted to go towards the presidential Palace.
As per the eyewitnesses, the Taliban opened gunshots to disperse the women and asked the journalists to leave the scene.
As per the video clips aired on social media, the Taliban have also used tearing gas to disperse the all-women protest after they failed to do so after gunshots.
The Taliban fighters said that the women wanted to enter the Presidential Palace that has been prevented but did not say anything about the violence against the protesters.
Members of the IEA said that their government is not established yet and the women have to wait until they announce their government.
It is the fourth all-women protest since the Taliban takeover which was conducted in western Herat province and in the Afghan capital respectively.
