For the unversed, Taliban insurgents entered Kabul and President Ashraf Ghani left Afghanistan on Sunday, bringing the Islamist militants close to taking over the country two decades after they were overthrown by a US-led invasion.

Rhea also urged global leaders to stand up for the humanitarian crisis. “Smash the patriarchy…women are human too,” she added. 

Rhea Chakraborty is not the only one who has come forward to address the ongoing crisis. Actor Karan Tacker feels devastated to look at the state of women in Afghanistan. 

“Shame on humanity…while the world just sits and watches this in silence,” he wrote on his Instagram Story.
