Paryani rejoins sit-in camp following hospitalization

Women’s rights activist Tamana Zaryab Paryani returned to her sit-in camp on Saturday evening after a brief hospitalization.

Her sister and fellow activist, Zarmina Paryani, said a group of delegates from the German parliament had visited their camp, vowing to take Paryani to Germany’s parliament in order to pass on his message to the house.

Paryani’s hunger strike reached its tenth day on Sunday.

Throughout her protest, she has fervently appealed to the international community and human rights organizations to acknowledge the Taliban’s oppressive policies, which she describes as “gender apartheid” in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, two groups of women protesters from Badakhshan and Takhar announced their support for the hunger strike initiated by Paryani.

The women said that they have also started hunger strike to call for recognition of “gender apartheid” against women in Afghanistan.
