As the Taliban takes control of Afghanistan, several heart-wrenching videos and images of the takeover are flooding social media. Amidst the despair, a heartbreaking video of an Afghani girl has emerged on social media, where she is talking about how the world treats Afghanistan and that the war-torn country will soon be forgotten. Iranian journalist and activist Masih Alinejad posted the video on Twitter on Friday, ahead of the Taliban’s Kabul take over. She wrote in the caption, “Tears of a hopeless Afghan girl whose future is getting shattered as the Taliban advance in the country. My heart breaks for women of Afghanistan. The world has failed them. History will write this."

During their earlier rule, the Taliban barred women from working outside the home or attending school. Women were required to wear the burqa and had to be accompanied by a male relative whenever they went outside. People are now fearing that the Taliban will roll back two decades of gains by women and ethnic minorities while restricting the work of journalists and NGO workers.

Several users took to Twitter to react to the heartbreaking video.
