 Woman, whose eyes are gouged out by the Taliban claims women are 'fed to the dogs

Khatera, 33, was tortured by Taliban fighters when she was two months pregnant with her baby.
Khatera had her eyes gouged out in the brutal attack last year. They (Taliban) first torture us (women) and then discard our bodies to show as specimen of punishment," said Khatera, who also suffered deep knife injuries.

"Sometimes our bodies are fed to dogs. I was lucky that I survived it.

"One has to live in Afghanistan under the Taliban to even imagine what hell has befallen the women, children and minorities there."

In the eyes of Taliban, women are not living, breathing human beings, but merely some meat and flesh to be battered," she added.

The 33-year-old said she is 'lucky' to have survived the attack, which she said was ordered by her own dad

Khatera is now living in Delhi with her toddler and husband, and worries what the future beholds for women in Afghanistan now the Taliban have taken control again.

Khatera said: “The Taliban don’t allow women to visit male doctors, and at the same time, don’t let women study and work. So, then what is left for a woman? Left to die?

Now, the concern has gone beyond letting women work. At this point, I am scared if they would leave these women alive.

"They don’t just kill women. They make animals feed on their bodies."

The Taliban recently announced that they have "relaxed their stance" on women's rights.

But they have also signalled they want to ban women from employment and repurpose the law that women are required to be accompanied by a man.

The Taliban claim the group does 

not want violence and is looking for a peaceful transfer of power"

Women  were filling up universities. It was a beautiful sight to see girls going to schools. All went down the drain in just a week," Khatera said.Khatera, who is mother to five children back at her Ghazni home, said that she was tortured "at a time when police had the power to act" and now the "Talibs will run amok."

Man gets to positions of power and authority and bring to bear their inner qualities. Position, as we have it here, is used to do all sorts of things; good and bad. But mostly and vexatiously, position blinds us as we use it to cheat and deny others their rights. Certain men understand that position is an opportunity to etch their names in gold and put such in the same of time.   It is exactly fifty years today that the 42nd Deji of Akure, late Oba Agunsoyebioyinbo Ademuagun Adesida 11 joined his ancestors.

It was the strange shouts of "opo ye o, opo ye o, opo ye o", that prompted me to rush out of our house at Oke aro. I saw people running helter, skelter. I did not bother about them. I was looking for the "electric
