She Disguised Herself as a Man to Survive the Taliban

Women in Afghanistan weren't allowed to work. So Nadia Ghulam spent 10 years disguised as her dead brother in order to provide for her family.

    This is a practice in Afghanistan and is known as Bachaposh in which some families without sons will pick a daughter to live and behave as a boy. This enables the child to behave more freely: attending school, escorting her sisters in public, and working. It is actually a good practice which provides more freedom to the girl of the family...

    Such a beautiful voice, Nadia, in spite of the ugly hardships you have been couragous enough to embrace and follow through with to save your family and your own self. And still you are smiling, a beautiful smile. You are a Blessing on this earth and for all those that are lucky enough to have a brave, wise, intelligent - and of course, beautiful, soul like you to be with them and to teach them. God is with you always.

    99.999% PPL around the World KNOW NOTHING ABOUT TALIBAN.. LEARNING FROM MEDIA IS ONE OF THE MOST STUPID ACT OF THIS CIVILISATION OF FOOLS. TALIBAN WERE THE RELIGIOUS STUDENTS WHO REFUSE TO HAND OVER HIS GUEST WHO WAS FALSELY ACCUSED AS 9/11 MASTERMIND. TALIBAN HAVE MORAL AND ETHICS... BUT U.S CREATED A TERRORIST GROUP WHO KILLED RAPED AND THEY CALL HIM TALIBAN SPOILING THERE NAME.... THEN U.S CREATED ISIS GIVING THEM ARMS AND RECRUITING FROM LONDON U.S AND ISRAEL AND FROM OTHER COUNTRIES. THE REAL TALIBAN IS A MAN OF WORD WHO RESPECT WOMEN AND INDER THERE RULE OF 5-6 YR AFGANISTAN WAS THE MOST SAFEST PLACE FOR THERE PPL AND WOMEN.

    People like the Taliban don't like educated women, because they see them...quite rightly...as a threat. What a brave and wonderful woman 🙂

    It was not only a bomb. It was a drone attack bomb by NATO who hits the Taliban and innocent civillians usually . Israel hits US in shape of 9/11 . And the war was start against Afghanistan.
