The experience of a BBC presenter returning to Afghanistan under Taliban rule

by time news

BBC presenter Yalta Hakeem was born in Afghanistan. His family left Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation in the 1980s. But he continued to gather and deliver news from Afghanistan. He is now back in Afghanistan for the first time since the Taliban came to power 100 days ago.

I know that returning to my home country for the first time since the Taliban came to power last August raises many questions in me.

How much has the country changed since the Taliban overthrew the Western-backed state? Will the long-awaited peace of the people of Afghanistan be achieved? What is the future of women and girls who will be expelled from public life by the new rulers?

I had a question. But I did not expect to hear it myself.
