David flew out of the country to go and interview the Taliban commander but to his surprise, the commander and a few Taliban abducted him and his 2 colleagues and was brought to Pakistan. Rhode was held a hostage for 7 months with the Taliban trying to ransom the U.S government for $25 millon and also wanted 15 prisoners released which did not work out because David got a chance to escape from them.
The mistreatment of women has always been related with the Taliban. They abuse women due to rules they have constructed. For example:
