Report: Taliban Rape, Beat Gay Man Seeking to Escape from Kabul

ITV News on Saturday reported that two Taliban jihadists raped and beat a gay man in Kabul after they used social media to trick him into a meeting.

The ITV report implied the victim, referred to by the pseudonym “Hanan,” was looking for a way out of Afghanistan when he began communicating with disguised Taliban operatives. After three weeks of exchanging social media posts, Hanan agreed to meet with his new friends, only to discover they were Taliban.

“Two people raped him, they beat him, and then demanded his father’s number so they could tell him his son was gay,” ITV reported.

Hanan survived the attack but is now “living in silence, shock and shame.”
