International actress Angelina Jolie joined the social networking site “Instagram”, yesterday.
Angelina shared her followers with a picture of a letter sent to her by an Afghan girl, in which she talks about her fear of the “Taliban” after they took control of the country.
Angelina commented: “This is a message sent to me by a teenage girl in Afghanistan right now, the people of Afghanistan are losing their ability to communicate through social media and express themselves freely. the whole world”.
It was decided to award the international star Angelina Jolie, a new Oscar, but not because of her cinematic work, but rather for the voluntary efforts she made and in recognition of her humanitarian work over the years, by receiving the “Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award” after the decision of the Board of Governors of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to award the award Angelina.
It is worth noting that the Taliban has been seeking to present a more moderate face since its rapid seizure of power last week, but its history of abuse is still present in the memories of thousands of Afghans.
It ruled the country with an iron fist from 1996 to 2001, before it was toppled by US-led forces for harboring the al-Qaeda extremists who masterminded the September 11 attacks.
And a secret document handed over to the United Nations revealed, according to what was reported by Agence France-Presse yesterday, that the movement had prepared blacklists of the names of Afghan citizens who cooperated with US forces in order to arrest them.
