Kabul: After the Taliban occupation in Afghanistan, pictures of civilians fleeing for their lives are becoming increasingly viral. Meanwhile, a photo showing the influence of the Taliban is also going viral, in which an American reporter is shown wearing a burqa. In this meme, American TV report has put 2 photos of Clarissa Ward, in one of which she is in a normal dress and in the other she is wearing an abaya (burqa). This photo is being shown as an effect of the Taliban rule.
Reporter told the truth Reporter Ward himself has revealed the truth regarding this meme. CNN TV reporter Clarissa Ward tweeted, "These images have been misrepresented. The first photo is from inside the private compound and the second photo is of the streets of Kabul, occupied by Taliban. Whenever I report on the streets of Kabul in the past, I always wear a scarf on my head. Although I do not wear an abaya. Of course there has been a change here, but not as much as shown in this photo.
Let us tell you that Clarissa Ward is an international reporter and she has been reporting in many countries where Islamic fundamentalism dominates. This includes Pakistan, Afghanistan, Yemen etc. She has also reported several times in Afghanistan and has interviewed Taliban leaders. At the same time, due to the Taliban’s occupation of Afghanistan, especially women have the most panic because they have been the most victims of Taliban atrocities.
