Speaking on social media on the first anniversary of the Taliban taking power in Afghanistan, young Malala Yousafzai said today was “a year of darkness” in the country.
“It has been a year since Afghan men and women had to give up their dreams. We must continue to speak out so that the leaders of Muslims and the world can no longer look the other way,” Malala said.
For them, the Afghan people have not and will not give up on restoring freedom and dignity to the country.
She also demanded that this was the final anniversary of the Taliban taking power in the country.
“May next year we will celebrate and celebrate an elected government that enables all women and girls to reach their full potential,” she said.

Malala’s story is directly linked to the Taliban group. At the age of 15, she was shot in the head for fighting a group order mandating the absence of women in schools in Pakistan (the country where she was born and lived).
Due to the situation, Malala gained international recognition and started a movement to fight to increase the presence of girls and women in schools and colleges around the world.
Because of the movement, Malala launched her autobiography, in which she talks about her experiences and experiences. The work was also awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014.
