Amiri on Taliban in Afghanistan
“Yeah, unfortunately, two weeks ago was the two-year anniversary of the Taliban and our BLACK DAY, It was a black day for me and all the girls of Afghanistan, the day our dreams were destroyed and all the efforts of many years of each of us were destroyed, When Herat fell, we decided to go to Kabul and reach one of the foreign embassies. When we arrived in Kabul, we saw that Afghanistan had fallen completely to the Taliban and all the people were going to the airport to be able to leave the country, we did the same,”. Amiri was quoted as saying by The New Indian Express.
“It was very painful for me when I saw that all the girls, journalists, and politicians of Afghanistan were going to the airport and were leaving their country,”. Amiri said. For me, the most terrifying moment of my life was. When I saw that there was shooting everywhere, people were screaming and crying. And even a young man had been shot five times . That was the moment when we stopped going to the airport. And I and my teammates went to a safe house.,”. Amiri added.
“Because my life was in danger, I separated from my family. I was in Pakistan for a month, I was afraid. I was very scared,” she told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio earlier this year. “Our dreams were shattered from the day the Taliban came. Everything — bat, cricket equipment, we burned everything because of the fear. The day we came to Australia, those dreams came alive again. We started to want to play again. We wanted to have a team here, to play cricket here.”
