New Delhi. Afghan film director Sahara Karimi has written a disappointing letter to all film communities and cinema lovers around the world, which is now shared by Bollywood’s famous film director Anurag Kashyap on his Instagram, appealing to all. That is to share it as much as possible. Now this post of Sahara is becoming fiercely viral on social media.
He wrote in his letter, ‘My name is Sahara Karimi, and I am a film director as well as the current Director General of Afghan Film, the only state-owned film company established in 1968. I am writing this with a broken heart and with the deep hope that you will join us in saving my beautiful country from the Taliban. The Taliban have captured several provinces in the past few weeks.
“They massacred our people, kidnapped many children, they killed a woman in the name of dress, they tortured and killed one of our favorite comedians, they killed a prehistoric poet,” she says. They killed people associated with the government, some of us were hanged in public, and they displaced millions of families. After fleeing from these provinces, the families are in camps in Kabul, where they are in a state of dire straits.
“Children are dying in the camps due to dacoity and lack of milk. This is a humanitarian crisis, and yet the world is silent. We are used to this silence, but we know it is not fair. We know this decision to leave our people is wrong, we need your voice. What I have worked so hard for as a filmmaker in my country is likely to collapse. If the Taliban takes power, they will ban all arts. Me and other filmmakers could be next on his hit list. They will violate the rights of women and our expression will be silenced.
She adds, ‘When the Taliban were in power, the number of girls going to school was zero. Since then, the school has had more than 9 million Afghan girls. In Herat, the third largest city conquered by the Taliban, 50% of its universities were women. These are incredible achievements, which the world does not know. In these few weeks, the Taliban have destroyed many schools and thrown two million girls out of school again.
She said, ‘I don’t understand this world. I don’t understand this silence. I will stand up and fight for my country, but I cannot do it alone. I want a colleague like you. Help this world to pay attention to what is happening to us. Help us by telling the major media of your countries what is happening in Afghanistan. Be our voice outside Afghanistan. If the Taliban capture Kabul, we may not have access to the Internet or any other means of communication.
She says, ‘Please support your filmmakers and artists as our voice, share this fact with your media and write about us on your social media. The world does not turn towards us. We need your support and voice on behalf of Afghan women, children, artists and filmmakers. This is the biggest help we need right now. Please help us not to leave this world to the Afghans. Please help us before Kabul Taliban comes to power. We only have a few days. Thank you very much.’
