Hollywood star Angelina Jolie surprised her fans by joining the Instagram photo and video site for the first time, and choosing to be her first post to comment on the current events in Afghanistan, a message she received from an Afghan girl.
The girl, whose name was shaded on the letter, expressed her fears about the Taliban, and how she and her family live in a state of daily anxiety, and she also expressed her fears that she would not be able to go to her school.
While the global representative explained to her followers, who numbered more than 3 and a half million in a short time, that the people of Afghanistan are losing their ability to communicate through social media and express themselves freely, so she joined Instagram in order to share their stories and bring the voices of those who fight for human rights basic around the world, according to her.
Oscar-winning Jolie also revealed that she was on the Afghan border two weeks before the events of September 11, 2001, where she met Afghan refugees who fled the Taliban 20 years ago.
In addition, she added, it is disgusting to watch Afghans being displaced again due to the fear and uncertainty that grip their country, stressing that spending so much time and money and bloodshed and loss of life just for it is an almost impossible failure to comprehend, she said.
Angelina concluded her first post by stressing her commitment to finding ways to help, and inviting everyone to join her quest.
It is noteworthy that the Taliban was able to control the Afghan capital, Kabul, last week, while President Ashraf Ghani fled on a plane out of the country, followed by a number of former and current officials.
With the entry of Taliban fighters into the Afghan capital, Western countries raced ahead of time to evacuate their diplomats and collaborators from this country, which witnessed in a few days a state of widespread chaos.
