Taliban Terrorizes Hospital to Stop Women and Men from “Mixing”
Members of Taliban “religious police” yesterday raided the first independently run hospital in Taliban-held areas of Afghanistan, claiming that male and female personnel were “mixing” illegally. Twenty armed soldiers stormed the new Emergency Surgical Hospital in Kabul, surrounded doctors and staff at lunch in the cafeteria, and proceeded to beat and harass them. The charge was that male and female staff members were allowed to eat together, something strictly prohibited by Taliban rule. Hospital staff claims that a curtain divided the cafeteria. In protest, hospital management discharged all of its patients with cash and medicines.
