अमेरिकी नेतृत्व मलाला से तो मिला लेकिन इमरान को नहीं दे रहा टाइम

साल 2021 के अगस्त का मध्य. विश्व एक बड़े सत्ता परिवर्तन का साक्षी बना और ये परिवर्तन हुआ अफगानिस्तान में जहां राष्ट्रपति अशरफ गनी की सत्ता को न केवल कुख्यात आतंकी संगठन तालिबान ने चुनौती दी बल्कि उसे उखाड़ फेंका और काबुल पर कब्जा कर लिया. घटना का सबसे विचलित करने वाला पहलू अमेरिका था जिसने घटना पर वैसी प्रतिक्रिया नहीं दी जैसी उम्मीद आमतौर पर उससे की जाती है.अफगानिस्तान पर तालिबान को कब्जे करे ठीक ठाक वक़्त गुजर चुका है. जैसे हालात हैं अफगानिस्तान की स्थिति अच्छी नहीं है और मुल्क दशकों पीछे चला गया है. बात सबसे ज्यादा प्रभावित लोगों की हो तो महिलाएं और लड़कियां हैं. तालिबान पर लगातार यही आरोप लग रहा है कि वो लड़कियों और महिलाओं को शिक्षा तक से वंचित कर उनके मानवाधिकारों का हनन कर रहा है. इन्हीं गफलतों के बीच नोबेल पीस प्राइज विनर और पाकिस्तानी एक्टिविस्ट मलाला यूसुफजई द्वारा एक बड़ी पहल को अंजाम दिया गया है.
