KABUL: A relative of Nadima, known as Patingara Kakai, an Afghan female comedian, said Sunday that Kakai has gone missing for 25-day as of now and that there is no clue regarding her whereabouts.
The Islamic Emirate has not said anything in this regard.
Nadima is famous for her comedy video which she mainly posts on TikTok, Facebook and Instagram.
A relative of Nadima, who wished to go unnamed said that she went missing from her office nearly one month ago and since then there has been no information about her.
“A women called Nadima has been detained by the Taliban at her office. We call on the Islamic Emirate to put an end to these actions,” said Moanisa Mubar, a women’s rights activist.
This comes as Sayed Baqir Mohsini, an Afghan professor who went missing on Friday, appeared on his Facebook page today to confirm his release. However, he didn’t provide details that why and by whom he has been detained.
The disappearance of these two high-profile figures faced a widespread reaction by international organizations as well as Afghans on social media.
“The disappearances and detentions of Taliban critics, journalists and activists continue. Sayed Baqir Mohsini and Nadima are taken by the Taliban and there is no information about their whereabouts. This a group of dictators and repressors who must never be recognized and supported,” said
Samira Hamidi, a member of Amnesty International.
