The young athlete, 18, of Hazara ethnicity, played in the youth national team

A player of the youth volleyball team of Afghanistan, Mahjubin Hakimi, 18, of Hazara ethnicity was beheaded by the Taliban in Kabul. To report it to Persian Independent
, according to the Indian media, she is his coach, identified for security reasons with the pseudonym Suraya Afzali. The girl was allegedly murdered in early October, but the news would only come in these days because the Taliban threatened the family with retaliation.

Before the Taliban came to power, on August 15, the girl played for the municipal team of the Afghan capital, the Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club. A few weeks after the capture of Kabul, with the ban on sports for women (the vice president of the «Cultural Commission» Ahmadullah Wasiq explained that «it is not necessary for women to do sports, especially in public»), many Afghan women and sportsmen have tried to escape abroad. Others were forced into hiding. Some, like the players from Herat, had managed to arrive in Italy.

Of the players of the youth volleyball team, added the coach, only two managed to escape abroad, while all the others “were forced to flee and hide” and attempts to find “help from international organizations and countries have not been successful “. Mahjubin Hakimi had the worst end.

“Look at her as if she were your daughter: Mahjabin was beheaded, because she was Hazara and because she played volleyball without a hijab. This is Afghanistan today. We have people there who are walking corpses. Let’s stop this genocide with the humanitarian corridors or we will be responsible for it », writes on Twitter the sports manager of the Democratic Party, Mauro Berruto, former technical commissioner of the men’s national volleyball team.
