The Taliban leader promises to respect the rights of minorities in Afghanistan

Abdul Ghani Baradar said that women and religious minorities would be granted rights under sharia law.

The political leader of the Taliban, Abdul Ghani Baradar, outlined his vision for the future of Afghanistan, in which women and religious minorities will be granted rights in accordance with Islamic law.

In a rare interview, Baradar said that the withdrawal of the United States and its allies from Afghanistan “is in the interests of the American people.”

Washington’s longest and most useless war will end, American troops will return home after 20 years, and Afghanistan will get rid of the presence of foreign forces,” he said, answering written questions from NBC News.

Baradar assured that the Taliban intends to protect the rights of minorities.

“Representatives of religious minorities, like other Afghans, will have rights, and their religious ceremonies will be conducted without restrictions and supported,” Baradar said.

“Women will be granted rights in accordance with sharia law,” he added, without specifying what this means.

The Taliban leader tried to assure the United States and other countries that he would not allow extremist groups to use Afghanistan as a springboard for attacks on the West.

“No one is allowed to use our territory to create a threat to other countries,” he said. “No one should feel threatened by Afghanistan.”
