Taliban fighters shoot an Afghan singer! They visited his house a few days before the accident

“He was an innocent singer who just entertained people…they shot him in the head on a farm” Andarabi’s son, Jawad, told AFP. According to Agence France-Presse, the Taliban shot the singer on Friday in the Afghan province of Baghlan, about 100 kilometers from the capital, Kabul. His son said that a few days before the incident, they were visited and searched by Taliban, and they allegedly had tea with Andarabi.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told the Associated Press that the movement would investigate the incident, but did not give details of the singer’s death. The singer’s death raised the fears of human rights organizations of the Taliban’s return to its repressive policies from the period prior to its rule. Therefore, Amnesty International Secretary-General Agnes Callamard condemned the killing of the singer.

The Taliban in 2021 is the same violent Taliban

“There is increasing evidence that the Taliban in 2021 is the same intolerant, violent and repressive Taliban as it was in 2001. After 20 years, nothing has changed in this area.” Callamard wrote on Twitter.

The previous Taliban government, which was in power until 2001, implemented a strict interpretation of Islam. Afghan women cannot go to work, study or travel without being accompanied by a male protector. Singing and listening to music were also prohibited.
