Though several Taliban leaders have promised that the terrorist group is a less savage version than what the world has come to know, the latest reports from the ground seem to clearly indicate that they’re lying.
According to Breitbart, the Christian non-profit group SAT-7 claims that Taliban thugs are demanding to check the phones of Afghan citizens and if a digital version of the Holy Bible is found on the phone, it’s an instant death sentence.
“We’re hearing from reliable sources that the Taliban demand people’s phones, and if they find a downloaded Bible on your device, they will kill you immediately,” SAT-7 North America President Dr. Rex Rogers reported this week to Religion News Service.
The group reports that Taliban operatives and spies are actively hunting down Christians in the days after the terrorist group successfully retook the entire country as President Joe Biden’s U.S. troop withdrawal plans resulted in complete disaster.
“It’s incredibly dangerous right now for Afghans to have anything Christian on their phones. The Taliban have spies and informants everywhere,” Rogers said.
Reportedly, word on the ground from similar organizations who specialize in assisting persecuted Christians, Taliban terrorists are already implementing Sharia law in various sections of the country.
“Our brothers and sisters in Christ are telling us how afraid they are. In the areas that the Taliban now control girls are not allowed to go to school and women are not allowed to leave their homes without a male companion,” a Release International informant reported.
As Breitbart noted, prior to the rise of the Taliban in the war-ravaged country, Afghanistan already held the rank of being the second most dangerous place to practice Christianity, only falling behind North Korea. Now, with devout Islamic jihadists running the show, being a Christian in the country just became exceedingly more dangerous.
On Thursday, according to Fox News, some 15,000 Americans remain trapped in Afghanistan with no real plan of how to get out. In addition, tens of thousands of allied Afghans who worked with the U.S. in various capacities also remain trapped.
