Nobel Peace winner Malala Yousafzai expressed her “deep gratitude” to Qatar for securing safe evacuation from Afghanistan.

In her official twitter account, Malala said she is “grateful to see the government of Qatar helping so many people – students, women’s rights advocates, journalists and more – safely evacuate Afghanistan.”

She also expressed hope that more countries will accelerate their efforts and support.

Since Taliban takeover of the country, Qatar has been assisting thousands of Afghan refugees via evacuation processes.

Malala has earlier expressed worried about the safety of millions of Afghans after the Taliban took over Afghanistan on August the 15th. 

Malala is an activist for human rights and comes from Pakistan. She became the youngest ever Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2014 at the age of 17. 

She has since continued campaigning for the education of women and children. 

Speaking to the BBC, she called recent events “shocking” and said there is now an “urgent humanitarian crisis”. 

She said: “We are living in a world where we’re talking about advancements, about equality, about gender equality.We cannot see a country going decades and centuries back.” 

She added: “We have to take some bold [actions] for the protection of women and girls, for the protection of minority groups and for peace and stability in that region.”

Kabul Collapse

Last week, the Taliban has claimed victory after taking over the capital of Kabul.

Fighters have seized the presidential palace and the government has collapsed.

Moreover, President Ashraf Ghani fled abroad.

This came a few days after foreign forces started withdrawing from the country.

Kabul has earlier urged all European countries in early July to halt forced deportations for the next three months.

However, the renewed violence foiled any hope to restore calm in the country.
