We Can’t Abandon Disabled People in Afghanistan

Just to follow up on this entry a couple of weeks ago, about my concerns for disabled people living in Afghanistan, I think I ought to flag this very, very concerning article up. It reports that the Taliban are now targeting disability rights activists because of their links with america. It says that the religious nutters, who have used people with disabilities as suicide bombers in the past, are now coming to their homes and attacking them. The situation it describes is appalling, and indeed extremely frightening. I can’t begin to imagine what it would be like to live under such circumstances, but surely anyone with more than an ounce of compassion would agree that we can’t leave these people to suffer like that.
