Taliban violating human rights blamed all the international bodies


Various human rights body have blamed Taliban to disturb the human rights which were gained by Afghanistan in last twenty years. The international bodies like Amnesty International, the International Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) and the World Organisation Against Torture (OMCT) have blamed Taliban to violate human rights.


The report referred to attacks on human rights advocates, saying the Taliban are conducting door-to-door searches for human rights defenders.


“In just over five weeks since assuming control of Afghanistan, the Taliban have clearly demonstrated that they are not serious about protecting or respecting human rights. We have already seen a wave of violations, from reprisal attacks and restrictions on women, to crackdowns on protests, the media and civil society,” said Dinushika Dissanayake, Amnesty International’s Deputy Director for South Asia.


Zarqa Yaftali, a women’s rights activist, said: “Right now, Afghan women do not have access to education and work. The women do not have the right to participate in politics, and this reveals the humanitarian crisis in the country.”


At the same time, the Taliban continues to state that they will respect human rights based on Islamic sharia.


Political analysts, however, say that the Taliban should interact with international countries.

Sayed Hakim Kamal, a political analyst, said: “If the Taliban violates human rights, they will stand against Western countries and their fundamental values, and this may cause Western countries to not recognize them officially.”


The concerns over abusing human rights come as Afghanistan’s Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) in a statement said the commission has not been able to fulfil its duties since the previous government collapsed last month.
