What Will Happen to Afghan Citizens if Taliban Take the Power?

It is being nearly 20 years that the Taliban have been fighting government forces to retake Afghanistan and re-establish the Islamic Emirate. They previously ruled Afghanistan for five years, which is one of the darkest periods in Afghanistan’s contemporary history. The Taliban used to be considered a terrorist group, but gained political legitimacy after the signing of the peace agreement with the United States, which led the group to believe that their war was legitimate and the international community will recognize them as State after their victory. (Occupation of Afghanistan). They are more at war with the Afghan government and people than ever before, and they want to seize power not through peace but through war.

The citizens of Afghanistan, who are worried about the return of this group, will no longer be able to experience that dark period again under the name of the Islamic Emirate. They know that the return of the Taliban will certainly not be without tragedy for them.

Although the Taliban say they have made mistakes in the past and no longer want to repeat those mistakes, but as we know there is not the slightest change in their behaviors. They attack journalists, human rights activists, university professors, health workers and government employees every day.

Recently, in a popular TV show, Hafizullah Mansoor one of the senior members of Afghan peace negotiation team was asked About the Taliban’s views on freedom of expression and their treatment with other religious groups especially the Shiites, whether the Taliban’s views have changed or not?

In response to Tv Show’s presenter Mr. Mansoor Said “The Taliban have not changed and they are exactly the same group they were 20 years ago. They reject freedom of expression and will treat other religious groups in Afghanistan as they have in the past.” He Added if the Taliban get the power they will punish all Afghan citizens. No matter who were them. The people who were lived in the city or in the village, the people who were government employees or not, the people who worked for Foreign troops or not, they are going to punish all citizens as USA or NATO’s slaves.

Afghanistan has made tangible achievements in the last 20 years in various fields, and everyone believes that if the international community leaves Afghanistan alone, not only will these achievements be lost, but a humanitarian catastrophe will occur in this country.

We (BIGHRO) call on the international community not to believe what the Taliban say. they are just a terrorist group and that they will not be commit to any agreement.

Journalists and Civil Society Activists are leaving Afghanistan!

After escalation of targeted-killings in recent months that have killed and injured hundreds of journalists, human rights activists, civil society activists and prominent figures; now Journalists, civil society activists are leaving Afghanistan permanently or temporarily due to growing security threats.
Recently, a female journalist and a male TV journalist, who are prominent TV personalities, left Afghanistan for security reasons. They attribute their departure from
Afghanistan to the lack of security and the government’s inattention in insuring the journalist’s security.
A report which released by the Afghan Human Rights Independent Commission at the end of 2020 shows that in the last six months, including more than 100 of Afghan journalists, about 945 Afghan citizens have been killed and injured in the targeted assassinations.
These attacks come as the Afghan government is negotiating peace with the Taliban.
The Afghan government blamed the Taliban for the attacks and accuse them in targeted-killings.
Human rights activists in Afghanistan believe that negligence and widespread corruption in the security sector are the factors which government is not able to prevent targeted- assassinations. They are stressing that if the government continues to engage in corruption and engage in political controversy, it will be not so long that we witness the suffocation of freedom of expression as the dark regime of the Taliban once again in Afghanistan.
Belgian Independent Global Human Rights Organization is concerned about the lives of civilians, especially journalists, and calls on the Afghan government and the international community to stop these attacks and to pay serious attention to the security of journalists, human rights activists and civil society activists.

The Most Prominent Journalist and Civil Activist Was Assassinated in Kabul

Yama Siawash, a prominent Afghan journalist and civil society activist, was killed in a terrorist attack on a car carrying him with his two colleagues in this morning.
Over the past week, Afghanistan has witnessed the deadliest attacks in which dozens of Afghans have lost their lives. The Taliban have been active in most of these attacks, and the Afghan government has so far had no practical plan to prevent the killing of civilians other than to condemn them.

Targeting journalists is a gross violation of human rights and is considered a crime against humanity. Belgian Independent Global Human Rights Organization strongly condemns today’s attack and calls on the Afghan government to identify the perpetrators and prosecute them as soon as possible.

Terrorist Attack On the Largest Educational Center in Afghanistan

Yesterday, November 02, 2020, a number of assailants allegedly affiliated with the ISIS terrorist group attacked to Kabul University Afghanistan ‘s largest educational center in Kabul. They shot the students in the courtyard and inside their classrooms.
It is believed more than 80 people were killed and injured in this attack.
Although ISIL has claimed responsibility, but security agencies in Kabul blame the Taliban and the Haqqani Network for the attack. This comes as that the peace talks between the Afghan government and the Taliban is going on in Doha to end 40 years of violence in Afghanistan.
But unfortunately, however with the start of peace talking, it was expecting that war parties would agree to a ceasefire and level of violence would be reduced, but on the contrary, since the start of the talks, nearly 1,000 civilians, including women and children, have lost their lives in different attacks of Taliban.
Attacking educational institutions is a gross violation of human rights and the humanitarian laws of war and it is considered crime against humanity.
Among the terrorist groups in Afghanistan, the Taliban have the largest population and in the country, and the majority of deadly attacks in the cities and government and non-government institutions are carried out by this savage group. Although the group has a peace treaty with the United States, but their attacks on the Afghan government and civilians are intolerable and unjustifiable.
BIGHRO strongly condemns the attack on Kabul University with the strongest words and called on the international community, especially the United States, to boycott the Taliban terrorist group and force them to make peace with the Afghan government.

Takhar (The Safe Haven for Illegal Gunmen in the Northeast of Afghanistan)

The province of Takhar (the province in the northeast of Afghanistan) is one of those provinces which is famous by having illegal armed forces. Beside the security threats from the terroristic groups such as Talib and ISIS, which have made living difficult for the residents of this province, the tyranny of the illegal armed forces have also narrowed the living space for the resident of Takhar.
The presence of prominent local figures such as commander Khal Mohammad, Commander Sakhi, and other people are the main reasons that why Takhar residents consider their province to be in the hands of powerful local forces.
Mostly, the things which bother these residents is the committing of crimes which are committed by illegal gunmen every day. But the local government is unable to control it. Crimes such as murder, robbery, kidnapping, beatings, forced marriages, raping on women and children and drug trafficking to central Asia countries are the issues that made this province one of the insecure provinces in the north zone.
Residents says it’s been 10 years that insecurity have been continuing by both sides either terroristic groups or local illegal gunmen. They blame the government and the security officials in providing security for the civilians in this provinces.
They believe that the illegal gunmen commit crime by supporting of high- ranking governments officials, otherwise they are not enable to do so.

Are Afghan women optimistic about Peace with Taliban?

It has been 18 years since the collapse of a regime when women were being defined by their rights and identity in the four walls of the home and the internal responsibilities of family and kitchen, and it was the Taliban political system or their government that kept women in the houses for more than half a decade and had experienced hardship. They were deprived of the right to work abroad, to be educated in school and university, which is known today as the greatest achievement of women.
Now that 18 years have passed since then, Afghan women have achieved the greatest. They go to school to learn pre-education; then they go to university to be active in various fields such as politics, economics, technology, security, health…etc., to shape the future of their country. What was impossible for them in the past and was just a dream. Now that hundreds of legal materials and women’s rights organizations are working to support and protect women, as well as recognizing women as half of society who have equal rights without any discrimination from men side, it is no longer a dream and the accepted objective reality of Afghanistan today is on the side of other achievements for women.
Although the lack of practical shortcomings of the government to support and highlight the status of women cannot be ignored, it seems that all these achievements with all their shortcomings are today the red line for women in any political transaction which is supposed to make the future of the country’s political system; and would not trad able ever.
However, the questions that arise are whether women will support peace with the Taliban? In other words, are women ready to accept the post-peace Emirati regime to end violence? In general, what is their perspective on the peace perspective with the Taliban?
Peace which is a lost and a chronic long-wish of every Afghan citizen, which many people are counting for the moments to come true their wish, but it is discussing while the Taliban is the mean side of the peace reconciliations. Taliban, the group that has made the darkest period in its history by displaying an unprecedented extremist hostility to Afghan women during their regime.
With this situation, Afghan women, who have the worst and most horrific experiences of the Taliban in the past, on the one hand accept this peace to end the suicide bombing and on the other hand consider peace as the biggest threat against them. Because they see the Taliban as a great risk to themselves, given the nearly two decades of history and the group’s actions so far that have led to the stoning of thousands of women and children, and are reluctant to change the group’s minds. And the Taliban have exacerbated this insecurity of women in the negotiations between the Americans and the country’s political leaders. Because when they are always asked about women’s rights, their answer is simply, “We recognize women’s rights according to Islamic law,” without explaining whether the same law that defined women’s rights 18 years ago? Or this law is different from that past law. According to women, the Taliban have always seen the media as promoting prostitution and described freedom of speech as a means of promoting infidelity and atheism. This indicates that the group has not changed its mind after 18 years. Women who do not believe in a change of the Taliban are pessimistic about peace with the Taliban. However, they see peace as a serious need and stress that the Taliban must comply with the demands of the Afghan people and stop fighting violence.

A deadly attack on Sikh worship place in Afghanistan

Afghan Sikhs Which rescued by Afghan Forces

Due to a deadly terrorist attack on a Sikh worship place in Kabul province (the capital of Afghanistan) 33 civilians have been killed and wounded. This attack today -morning on date March 25 around 8am was began when dozens of Sikhs were worshiping.
Although the cause and motivation for the attack is not clear yet, but some people link it to the religious conflicts between Hindu extremists and Muslims in India which are going on at the moment.
Apart from the cause and motivation of this attack, what is important to note is the weakness and inability of the government and security agencies in securing the security of citizens, which cannot prevent such anti-human attacks. On the other hand, political divisions among Afghan political leaders have also led security agencies to engage in political issues rather than focus on the security of Afghan citizens.
Citizens of Afghanistan are strongly concerned about the creation of parallel governments and consider the causes of insecurity to be political divisions among political leaders. They call on the government to end these divisions and pay attention to the security of citizens.
Belgian Independent Global Human Rights Organization (BIGHRO) strongly condemns this attack and call the government to pay attention to the security of its citizens and protect the life and rights of the minorities in this country. we also urge the political leaders to end their political differences and prevent Afghanistan from going into more crisis.

Please support women’s breathing right in Afghanistan

Women in Afghanistan not only are deprived from their fundamental rights but also it is very hard for them to breathe easily.
This issue relevant to existing of extremist group and people who are misogynist and trying to suffocate the voice of women and make them imprisonment in their home. Recently establishing of an office under name of (Administration for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice) by an extremist scholar Mujib Rahman Ansari in Herat province (western province in Afghanistan) is a simple example of this matter. He due to his influence and power is working hard to make veil- wearing (Hejab) compulsory and collect the people by his religious school student who committed crime to impose Hudud (hard religion punishment of Islamic law) on them. He threats women through local medias every day by stressing to implementation of Hudud.
This matter has deeply concerned the women of Herat and they do not have the courage to stand up against Ansari’s threats and remarks.
Ignoring some women rights including preventing them from appearing in public and threatening them with a journalistic job, are the cases that Ansari wants women to be deprived.
However, the government has been silent in this regard and has not instituted any legal action against Mr. Ansari yet. Extremist groups are usually supported by Islamic countries such as Saudi Arabia to promote extremism in Afghanistan.
It should be noted that some Afghan Leader who also benefit from the financial resources of these countries are completely silent in such cases and pretend that there is no such thing at all.
Afghan civil and human rights activist insist that if the government continues to silence around Mr. Ansari and other extremist groups, it will not be too late for us to see extremist groups sharper than Taliban and ISIS in Afghanistan and being witness for nail- biting on democracy’s half-life coffin.

We urge European countries, which are trying to institutionalize democracy in Afghanistan and fund the Afghan government for this purpose, to put pressure on the Afghan government to bring the agents of extremism and violence in justice and do not let anyone dare to threat Afghan women again.

Supporting human rights abusers and having a partnership with them in the important national processes is disparagement of democratic values

Mr. Ashraf Ghani is expected to respect the principles of democracy and pay attention to it more than anyone else. Despite having followed education in the Western world he seems to work in the contrary, because he actually violates in most cases the human rights and infringes the significant process of the democratic values during the political campaigns.
For instance, supporting human rights abusers indirectly by hiring them to join electoral campaigns in aim to obtain more votes. General Malik is one of those figures, he is accused of murdering over 5000 war prisoners after a coalition with the Taliban in 1998.

Moreover, he and his two brothers Mr. Rasool Pahlawan and Mr. Gul Mohammad Pahlawan have committed a great amount of crimes and human rights violation in the past as well. From having personal jails to forced marriages, rape, expropriation of public properties and killing innocent people.Instead of bringing them in front of the court, Mr. Ashraf Ghani the president of Afghanistan supports them and brought them to his electoral campaign. They are even supposed to be hired in the next cabinet of Afghanistan’s government after the Presidential elections.

However, it seems that Mr. Ghani is not committed to any principles of democracy and he is ready to do anything for his victory in the elections. Even if it means to have agreements with such inhuman criminals and create safe heavens on earth for them. Nevertheless, it doesn’t seem to bother the President at all.

Who are behind the violence and violation of human rights in Afghanistan?

Violation of freedom of expression, assassination of government critics, imprisonment of civil activists, releasing war criminals and terrorists are the most recent news of the national unity government. That is governed by President Ashraf Ghani and some other characters. This report attempts to distinguish the government’s actions against critics of the government (human rights activists, writers, political analysts, and political opponents) and opponents (Taliban) in a comparative manner.
Mohammad Zaman Ahmadi was sentenced with 20 years of imprisonment for writing an article and was accused of blasphemy by the court 7 years ago. He has been imprisoned for 7 years now and no one has opened his case so far. Unlike, the case of Anas Haqani who has been released nevertheless of the fact that he was connected to a terroristic group. Besides him, two other senior members of Haqani network were also released.

Anas Haqani was arrested by the national security of Afghanistan on 16/10/2014. He was accused of killing thousands of civilians and being behind tens of suicide attacks. He was sentenced to be executed however the releasing letters of Anas Haqani and the two other senior members were signed by President Ashraf Ghani after 5 years of imprisonment. It was a deal to secure the elections in areas occupied by the group in Ashraf Ghani’s favor during the elections of 2014.

Another matter that is going on is illegal arresting of Logar Provincial (province in south of Afghanistan) Human Rights Activists and Civil Activists Mr. Musa Mahmoudi (Head of Logar Civil Society) and Ehsanullah Hamidi (Human Rights Activist) by the Afghan directorate of national security. Ehsanullah Hamidi was arrested by national security authorities after he revealed that more than 500 children were sexually exploited by government officials in Logar province.
They are reportedly mistreated and tortured in prison. In contrast, the release of Mawlawi Salahuddin, a senior member of the Taliban, is a new issue that is
controversial as well. He was arrested while traveling to Pakistan on 1/9/2015 then released on 11/6/2019. But according to government officials, he had escaped from prison.
Moreover, the assassination of Wahid Muzhda a political analyst on 22/10/2019 by gunmen who had military uniforms and laser weapons needs to be thought about. He was a critic of the government and sympathized with the Taliban in some cases. According to Asadullah Wahidi another political analyst and his close friend Wahid Muzhda told him he had been threatened to death by the government.
In addition, spending more than 200 million dollars in Ashraf Ghani’s electoral campaign and recruiting human rights abusers and lawbreakers (such as Zardad Faryadi, Nezamuddin Qaisari, Kamran Alizai, Akhtar Mohammad Ebrahim Khel and other criminal figures) proves to be another fact where criticism can be directed at Mr. Ghani. On top of this the source of his expenditure is unclear. Spending such a big amount on campaigns while more than 70% of the Afghan population is under the poverty line is questionable.
So far, no security organization dared to file a corruption case against the Presidential Citadel, because the people who are accused are close to Mr. Ashraf Ghani and nobody can start an inquiry related to these cases. However, it can be assumed that Mr. Ashraf Ghani as a top government official, is involved in all of these cases and is himself a major contributor to human rights abuses, violations of freedom of expression and politicians.

Afghanistan: the abyss of death for her citizens

According to a Washington Post report which released on October 17 ” The past three months in Afghanistan have been the deadliest for civilians in a decade”
This published report which is quoted by UN shows that nearly 1717 of civilians have been killed while 3139 have been wounded between the period of July and September. In addition, it’s reported that among 8000 of civilian casualties 41% exists of children and women.
This comes as, the casualties of the militaries are over three times more than the mentioned statistic.
The high level of violence in Afghanistan indicates the government’s weakness to secure the citizens security. At the moment, nowhere is secure in Afghanistan and dozens of people die every day due to war caused by the presence of criminal groups throughout Afghanistan.
At the other hand, many human rights activists and journalists are threatened and killed by Taliban, warlords, and some law- breakers on a daily basis.
We call on the government of Afghanistan to prevent the casualties of civilians and threats against journalists and human rights activists, as well as to remain committed in their commitments for the international community.

The Security situation in Takhar province of Afghanistan is worrying

 

After Taliban’s attack on many parts of the northeastern province Takhar the security situation became extremely worrying. The Taliban have intensified their attack on other districts since they conquered the district Yangi Qala.
The residents who have left their houses due to war fear, state that the Taliban have gained control over all districts except the districts buildings. But the fight between governmental soldiers and insurgence are still going on.
This comes as the president and chief executive of Afghanistan are busy with their electoral campaign.
Due to the intensified war people were forced to leave their houses and villages however many couldn’t flee and are still trapped in war zones.
Therefore, we call on all the parties in conflict to respect humanitarian law and prevent civilians to become victims of war.

Police in Afghanistan holds field court

Police in remote region areas which are far from city centers, especially, in villages hold field courts for people in Afghanistan. It is said that the police misuses his authorities by killing civilians for personal issues in different accusations. Recently, two cases of murder of civilians in two districts like Balkh district of Balkh province and Warsaj district of Takhar province (Northern provinces in Afghanistan) has been filed. The families of these victims claimed that their sons were killed without any reasonable arguments.
In the northern province of Balkh two civilians who were brothers, were killed by police while they were getting some loafs of bread from the bakery. The policemen who were riding in a police car shot them death and escaped from the area without any fear. Another case is in Takhar Northern Province of Afghanistan, which is about a young boy who has been killed by the police in front of his family in his residence. He was accused of supporting and working for insurgents. The families of these victims went to the police administration to write and register their complaints but nobody listened to their complaints. It seems that the police misuses his authorities and kills innocent civilians.
According to the penal code of Afghanistan, the police has only the right to arrest and introduce the suspects to the judicial organizations. Investigating and implementing of penalty are only the duties of judicial organizations not of the police administration. So killing or holding filed court for either guilty or innocent people by police administration is gross human rights violation and should be prevented by the Afghan government.

The Afghan police, human rights violator and partner of criminal groups in Afghanistan

Criminal and mafia activities are increasing which has become another danger to Afghan citizens beside the terrorist activities every day. This means a rise in the percentage of innocent lives being taken away and families becoming victims of human rights violations.
These groups which are believed to be in support of some high security officials and some political leaders, have a leading hand in different crimes such as murder, kidnap, robbery and human rights violation. Hundreds of Afghans become victims of their crimes.
So these groups are a serious and big threat to citizen’s security and their human rights beside the terrorist groups.
Among these, the police which is responsible for attaining the city and citizens security has a hand in different crimes in cooperation with these groups. Instead of preventing crimes to be committed by these groups the police is supporting them knowingly and unknowingly.
I (the reporter) have interviewed over 500 people who were victims of these types of crimes in different provinces like Kabul, Balkh, Herat and Nengarhar (provinces located in the center, north, west and east of Afghanistan). They claim that the whole network of criminal and mafia groups have contacts within the Afghan police and thanks to them are able to commit various crimes. According to these victims when you try to go to the police administration to complain, the police do not take any practical action except registering your complaints. They have also claimed that the police just pay attention to those people’s cases who pay them, thus bribe them.

A valid source which doesn’t want to reveal his name confirms the every claim in this report and says all the criminal groups which are active in different provinces are under support of some political leaders and some high security officials.
The provinces that I mentioned above and I had interview with its inhabitants are examples of hundreds of human rights violations and criminal cases that accrue.
Important to mention is that these typical criminal groups exist next to the terrorist groups in other provinces of Afghanistan as well. Unfortunately because the police supports them the Afghan citizens are devastated and are not able to stop these groups from growing.
Despite the 18 years of international financial cooperation for development of the security systems and forces in Afghanistan, it seems that all these international support has been wasted and that the government has been careless about it.
It’s a shame that the Afghan police has become the support system and partners with criminals and mafia groups instead of being the guardian of the Afghan order and stability.
The Belgian independent global human rights organization wants countries which support Afghanistan financially in particular for the security forces to bring necessary pressure on the Afghan government so that the Afghan government changes its careless attitude towards this matter and tackle this problem from the core as soon as possible.
