Five months after the detention of Mortaza Behboudi, an Afghan-French journalist by the Taliban, his wife Aleksandra Mostovaja has asked social media users to write virtual postal cards on Twitter and Facebook and ask the Taliban to release him.
Mostovaja, wrote on Twitter, “Today completes 5 months without my husband, Mortaza Behboudi, who has been jailed by the Taliban. To quote the book we both are reading now; ‘There is no wisdom without love. No love without freedom.’ I have been living without my love and hoping for his release.”
The photojournalist has been accused of espionage by the Taliban.
In the past five months, his family, and friends as well as Reporters Without Border, have been campaigning for his release.
In the call to launch the campaign for the release of Behboudi on social media, it has been stated that the journalist has worked hard to deliver the issues of the people whose voices have been taken away from them and stressed that the people raise their voices for him.
After the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan in August 2021, the Taliban has been cracking down on Afghan and international journalists.
