The Taliban has started covering murals and images painted on the security wall around Kabul with white paint and replacing them with short sentences supporting their ideology. Among many famous images, Japanese aid worker Dr. Tetsu Nakamura's portrait was covered with white paint and writing in Pashto had replaced the image, reading "Safeguarding the Islamic system, and independence needs patience and hard work." Nakamura was killed in an ambush in eastern Afghanistan in 2019. The Japanese physician and aid worker was widely respected and beloved in the war-scarred nation for his humanitarian work in eastern Afghanistan.
