On Jan. 22,1996 a lady was hit by Taliban vehicle. People went to governor of Herat for investigation. The governor said that "we keep telling you that women don't have the right to go outside their houses. If she was a man we could investigate the case. It is a good lesson to other women not to go outside of their houses. WOMEN IN THEIR HOUSES OR IN THE GRAVE."RAWA Photo Gallery ("some viewers may find disturbing")
