Farid Ahmad Fazli, a colleague of Ismail Meshaal, said he had taught at several universities in Kabul and was picked up yesterday without charge. He was providing free books to men and women who are still in custody. Don’t know where they are kept’.
During the rule of the Afghan Taliban, there have been few male protests in support of women, but Ismail Mashal, a lecturer who runs a co-educational institution, said he would stand up for women’s rights. As a teacher I was unable to do anything for women’s education so I tore up my certificates as useless.
“I am raising my voice, standing with my sisters, my protest will continue even if my life is lost,” he said.
