Afghan young woman is going to make history by leaving sad memories behind

Street break dance is included for the first time in this year’s Paris Olympics. Afghan girl Muniza Talash will participate in this event.

The situation in Afghanistan is not a secret to anyone, this Afghan girl is going to fulfill one of her dreams in the Olympics. But his journey to Paris was not so easy.

Even for a conservative society like Afghanistan, he did not make any concessions to fulfill his dreams; Rather, he showed great courage.

Muniza Talash joined a break dance community in Afghanistan in 2021 as the only woman Break dancing has also been added to the Olympic Games He will represent Afghanistan there She has to train covered in black from head to toe, a feat unlike any other break dancer in the world.

Many conservative Afghans strongly oppose women’s participation in the dance Muniza Talash said that she was even threatened with death for dancing, but still she continued to dance to fulfill her dreams.

Security forces raided a club in the Afghan capital, Kabul, where Muniza used to go to train.

“At that time I did not understand what was happening, but after a while the security forces arrested one person and took him away with his face covered,” Muniza said. It was later revealed that he was an extremist who had come to attack our club. They told us that this time we were lucky to be alive, because they were the ones who wanted to bomb our club.

“We were told, if we love life and want our safety, we should close this club,” said the young Afghan woman.

Not only was that incident the first time, the club staff had been in danger before. A year ago in 2020, a car parked on the street in front of it exploded, causing extensive damage to the club.

The 21-year-old break dancer said, ‘I was really scared. ‘

In 2020, Muniza Talash established a dance club in Kabul. Within a year, the club had 30 members, six of whom were women

Muniza added Talash to the end of her name herself, a Persian word meaning ‘effort’ or ‘hard work’. The name change was not only symbolic, he hoped that his decision to change his name would protect him if his family was threatened with his passion, sports.

As tensions rose in Afghanistan, Muniza’s club was closed for security reasons. After the Taliban returned to power in 2021, dancing and singing were effectively banned. But none of the Taliban’s tactics could break Muniza’s intentions.

Muniza knew that after the return of the Taliban, he would not be able to participate in the Olympics for his country. They banned women from participating in sports and the government would not send female players to participate there.

But Muniza took a different approach to Paris. He discovered he could compete for the refugee Olympic team, which has made it too dangerous for athletes whose home countries are facing conflict or civil war to return.

In May, he was one of the athletes selected to represent the refugee team at the Games, and the International Olympic Committee helped arrange coaching for him.

Munija Talash said, nothing is easy to achieve in life Break dancing is very difficult But if you have the will and the courage, you can achieve the goal
