Disbelief in peace and concerned about human rights violations in Afghanistan:

The picture from google.

While ending the war and killing is generally a positive thing, the special situation in Afghanistan with the Taliban, which has increased their activities in recent years, has raised fears in Afghan society about the future of the country in the absence of a strong deterrent force. Violence has escalated into Taliban insurgency.

The United States will end the longest war in 20 years with the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan on May 1 and the end of the withdrawal on September 11 this year.

The Afghan government has good resources to stand up to the Taliban terrorist group, but they have lost the ability to organize and mobilize their forces. The government does not have the ability to mobilize the people, the forces and the facilities at their disposal. There are several reasons for this. One of the most important reasons is that the government apparatus is inefficient and has been crippled by administrative and moral corruption. So the fear is serious. This fear has two aspects, one of which is the lack of confidence of the majority of the Afghan people in the current government, and the other aspect of which is due to the sharp increase in the confidence of the Taliban, which is trying to dominate the country.

The Taliban may continue the war under various pretexts. One of their excuses may be the purge of forces and groups that they are say a major obstacle to the establishment of an Islamic government and system. In fact, under this pretext, the Taliban seek revenge on groups they have fought against in the last twenty years, such as human rights activists, civil society activists and journalists. The second issue that causes the Taliban to continue the war in Afghanistan under this pretext is the issue of seizing power. Due to their nature, the Taliban do not believe in the division of power, the separation of powers and the distribution of resources. The third issue is the issue of Islamization of society and government. The Taliban may continue to fight in the country to establish the government they want and to secure the values they believe in. Another reason the Taliban may continue to fight in Afghanistan is that they claim ethnicity and seek the domination of a particular ethnic group in Afghanistan. They seek to dominate the Pashtun people in the country, so it is likely that the Taliban will continue to fight to eliminate non-Pashtun political elites in Afghanistan.

As the withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan begins, attacks on Afghan security forces in various provinces of the country have increased and a number of districts have fallen to the Taliban. Afghan security officials say they have withdrawn tactically from these areas. Afghan government officials have previously blamed the fall on districts for preventing civilian casualties. But the people of Afghanistan do not believe this, and they believe that, under the new government policy, a number of difficult-to-reach districts will be evacuated where they have difficulties to defend and send troops to these areas. If the evacuation of the districts should be done in consultation with the people and local commanders to prevent further harm to the people.

In our view, the announcement of the withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan has raised concerns about the loss of human rights progress. And the announcement of a plan to withdraw US troops from Afghanistan has heightened concerns about rising insecurity. And it has raised concerns for us that Afghanistan’s progress on human rights is being lost.

The people of Afghanistan, who have decades of experience in human rights abuses, fear that their achievements in media freedom, education, health care and women’s rights will soon be lost and that there will be no accountability for injustice.

Let the international community declare their commitment to the protection of human rights in Afghanistan. We believe that the Taliban’s approach to human rights is of grave concern.

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.

Documentary of the genocide of the Hazaras and the silence of the world against it:

I’m, Nasim Kardan, just one year ago, in one of the areas of Kabul, Afghanistan, was surveying the low-income and poor people of this area of ​​Kabul, known as the Chehel Dokhtar and Kata Bolandi, which is mostly inhabited by Hazaras, and is one of the most deprived areas. I was busy enrolling because some of our friends living outside Afghanistan had donated food aid to the poor. Suddenly my phone rang and I answered. I saw that she was one of my friends and she knew where I was that day. After I greeted her, she asked me: Where are you and how are you?

I said: Yes, I am fine, how about that?

She said: “I heard the news that a terrorist attack took place in a hospital near you. I wanted to know about you; Then her call was end off because my phone number did not work well. Then I found out that a little further away, in one of the hospitals in the same area, the terrorists attacked and entered the obstetric hospital where the women were giving birth, and shot all the people inside the hospital with barrage of bullets. In that attack, women and children were killed.

If these areas are very deprived of the capital of the country, this deprivation was limited. People did not have access to the simplest basic facilities of life, namely water, electricity, roads and clinics, while this area is very crowded. And as far as I know, the people deliberately kept this place in this state, and this is a completely systematic inhuman act, and it is done deliberately by the Afghan government.

I saw: the houses in this area are not livable at all, but people live in those houses because they do not have enough income. And the most victims of this violence are women, children and the elderly. I asked one of the ladies, “Are you using government aid?” She said no.

I asked, “What do you see as the reason?” “Government officials who come see only a few houses and leave, not all of them,” she said. She added and gave me an example and said: The process that started under the name Dester Khowan Mili (National Tablecloth) Everyone knows that every family deserves ten loaves of bread, but in this area we have only one loaf of bread and sometimes two loaves of bread We do not receive rest of our rights and do not given by the government.

In the last case of this violence (the genocide of the Hazaras) of course one of the most heinous and bloody, a few days ago, I found out that some of the girls who were killed were talking to me last year and telling me about their lessons: We weave carpets at home to cover our school expenses so that we can continue our education. They hoped to go to university in the future and have a good future, but unfortunately some of them are no longer alive and were buried with all their dreams.

The Hazaras are historically the only large ethnic group in Afghanistan that has seen the most restrictions from various Afghan governments. But for various political and social reasons, this fact is hidden from the public views. In addition to all these restrictions, unfortunately, another reality that almost all Afghan governments deny is the genocide of the Hazaras.

According to the United Nations, I consider the following historical cases to be the genocide of the Hazaras:

  1. The massacre of the Hazaras by Abdul Rahman Khan: Between 1880 and 1901 and the massacres, approximately 63% of the total Hazara population was killed and the rest either left their area or were enslaved.
  2. Afshar Massacre: On February 10, 1993, the forces of the Shura-e-Nezar and the Islamic republic of Afghanistan did not spare even women, children and the elderly, as it has never been determined, because the Afghan government has always refused to pursue this incident.
  3. Mazar-e-Sharif massacre: According to documents and evidence, thousands of Hazara men, women and children were killed by the Taliban in August 1998 in Mazar-e-Sharif.
  4. Quetta Massacres: The genocide of Hazaras in Pakistan has killed more than 2,000 people and injured thousands between 2008 and 2014.

In the latest Hazara genocide in Afghanistan, it is done in different ways. I can mention some examples of Hazara genocide:

Killings in religious buildings, stadiums, schools and scientific places, in civil demonstrations, in religious ceremonies, killings in hospitals, on highways and… In the latest case of this Hazara genocide, and of course one of the most heinous and bloody, a few days ago, a car bomb exploded at the entrance of a school called Sayd al-Shuhada High School on the outskirts of the Hazara and deprived area west of the capital of Afghanistan. It targeted female students and most children at the school. As children left the school in groups, a car full of explosives exploded among the girls. After the first explosion, two improvised explosive devices were detonated. So far, at least 85 people, most of them female students under the age of 18, have been killed and more than 150 others injured. There is a possibility of an increase in the number of deaths and the injured who are in serious condition.

Genocide is an old crime and a new concept. Of course, in a way, explaining genocide to those who have not been affected by it seems difficult for everyone to be aware of the need to deal legally with the crime of murder, and every country has a law to prohibit and punish this crime. But the mass murder of one group of people by another group falls under a different area of legal responsibility. Before the advent of weapons of mass destruction, no single human being could kill millions of other human beings, and he needed many people to help him/her in this horrific massacre. Therefore, this act was the behavior of many against others. In essence, genocide is the behavior of a specific group against a group. In recent decades, genocide in the name of the majority has taken place against the minority. Methods of genocide in various fields: political, social, cultural, economic, biological, physical, religious and moral.

The term “genocide” did not exist until 1944. This very specific term refers to violent crimes committed against a group with the intent to destroy it. On December 9, 1948, the United Nations was forced to ratify the Convention on the Prohibition and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide under the influence of genocidal events around the world. Under the convention, “genocide” was recognized as an international crime, and the signatory states were required to “prohibit and punish” it. This convention defines genocide as follows. Genocide means any of the following acts committed with the aim of destroying part or all of a nation, ethnicity, racial or religious group:

(A) Killing group members (B) inflicting severe physical or mental harm on group members (C) The deliberate imposition of certain types of living conditions on a group with the aim of physically destroying part or all of the group (D) Imposition of measures to prevent childbirth in the group (E) Forced transfer of children from one group to another.

I consider the Afghan government to be involved in this genocide of the Hazaras, because it has made many shortcomings for the simplest possible task, which is the security of this people; According to the latest reports by a local newspaper in an interview with the director of the Seyd al-Shohada school, it is clear that the security forces were aware of the attack but did not act if they could have closed the school to prevent the killing of children, it was not happening.

Murder of civil society activists and media causes censorship of facts in Afghanistan:

the picture from google

Following the escalation of targeted assassinations of journalists, human rights activists and civil society activists in Afghanistan, human rights defenders in the country have expressed their concern about the current situation and called for security.

In recent months, targeted attacks on journalists and human rights activists in Kabul, Nangarhar, Ghazni, Ghor, Balkh, Herat and Helmand have raised security concerns. The Taliban has not claimed responsibility for the attacks, but the Afghan government has blamed the increase on peace talks.

The murder of civil activists and the media causes censorship of reality and events!

Nasim Kardan Kabul, Afghanistan: I am concerned that the killing of civil society activists and the media will lead to censorship of events and facts. And the Afghan government has failed to provide security for journalists, civil society activists and human rights activists. And I call on the Afghan government and the international community to stop the ongoing killing of human rights activists and journalists as soon as possible.

In my opinion: “The current targeted killings are causing journalists, human rights and civil rights activists to censor some events and facts, as well as the killing of journalists, human rights and civil rights activists in explosions and armed attacks. “Our work environment has had a negative impact and, on the other hand, it has caused us psychological damage.”

Barriers and threats against journalists and human rights activists are increasing day by day; But no one takes responsibility for it. The current situation has had a negative impact on journalists, human rights and civil society activists, especially women, and in some places, activists have been forced to resign. While I am concerned about security threats against journalists, human rights and civil rights activists, some journalists and media activists, human rights activists and civil society activists have recently been assassinated in various attacks, and no one has claimed responsibility for them. And those who have been forced to leave their job in a bad economic and health situation, this bad situation does not only affect one person in the family, but all family members suffer from this crisis.

Global support for journalists, human rights and civil society activists in Afghanistan:

An official from the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) also said in the days leading up to the attacks that “recent terrorist incidents” show how much human rights defenders are being threatened and pressured. That the United Nations supports human rights defenders in Afghanistan.

The representative of the European Union Office in Afghanistan also said at one of the conferences: The European Union is committed to supporting human rights defenders. He called for a thorough investigation into the recent events and said the investigation is expected to identify the perpetrators and bring them to justice.

According to Amnesty International officials, human rights activists are groups that fight violence against women, corruption, and other anomalies and include lawyers, journalists, and even teachers who teach children the values of human rights.

With these definitions of this process of insecurity against journalists, civil society activists and human rights, but so far no effective action has been taken to ensure their security; These statements remain mere words and show the weakness of management in the institutions of the Afghan government and international institutions operating in Afghanistan.

Violence against Women in Afghanistan:

Violence against women is a serious human rights concern in Afghanistan. Despite the significant achievements that Afghanistan has had in the area of educating women and girls, health and their participation in the political, economic, social and civic affairs throughout the past 18 years, they still cannot fully enjoy or exercise their human rights. This can be because of the cultural and social challenges that women face in most parts of the country. Violence against women in Afghanistan is a widespread phenomenon that includes physical, sexual, economic, verbal, mental, and other types.

According to AIHRC’s Data Center, a total of 3477 cases of violence against women have been recorded at AIHRC offices in the first ten months of 2020. During the same period of time in 2019, the cases of violence recorded at AIHRC were 3910. A comparison of both shows 11% decline in violence against women in 2020; however, this decline could be due to lack of women’s access to legal and judicial organs, escalation of insecurity in different parts of the country, and the lockdown due to COVID-19.

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.

The mass migration of Hindus and Sikhs from Afghanistan

The mass migration of Hindus and Sikhs from Afghanistan and now from Ghazni province in this country shows the failure of the Afghan government to take care of their human rights and citizenship, especially their right to life.

The Government of Afghanistan is committed to protect the rights of minorities under national and international law. They have been in a state of emergency for a long time.

Expressing deep concern and regrettably, the Belgian Independent Global Human Rights Organization calls on the Government of Afghanistan to seriously and effectively protect the rights of Hindu and Sikh their citizens. We also call for an end to the war, which is the main cause of the catastrophe and destruction of this country, so that the citizens are not further victimized, harmed and forced to leave their country.

The war in Helmand, Afghanistan has left thousands of women and children homeless

Civilians must be allowed safe passage out of Lashkar Gah following three days of intense fighting between Afghan government and Taliban forces that has blocked all exit routes from the city and forced at least 35,000 people to flee their homes, said Amnesty International.

The heavy fighting, in which Afghan forces supported by US airstrikes are defending the Helmand Province capital from a Taliban assault, has taken out power across the entire city as well as telephone lines and internet access.

With nowhere to go, some of the tens of thousands displaced are reported by local media to have sought refuge in homes in neighboring areas, while hospitals have admitted hundreds of civilian casualties.

The situation for civilians in Lashkar Gah is grave and could deteriorate rapidly in the coming days. Tens of thousands of people are trapped in the middle of a bloody battle that shows no sign of abating.

To avoid this turning into a humanitarian disaster, both parties to the conflict must ensure that civilians are protected and allowed to safely leave the war zones and get out of the city.

We call on the Government of Afghanistan and the international community to ensure immediate shelter, food and other humanitarian assistance to the displaced, and call on the parties to the conflict to stop hostilities in civilian areas to prevent civilian casualties.

So far, there has been no response from the Government of Afghanistan to any support provided to civilians, especially displaced persons, which raises our concerns, and we urge the Government of Afghanistan to act as soon as possible to support the displaced.

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.

How the author was accused of blasphemy?

Zaman Ahmadi

The deepening of inequalities in various economic, social, scientific, and even political sectors destroys justice and equality of opportunity for members of society to access valuable resources and superior positions, and individuals and groups to rank and be close. Or avoid resources of wealth and power.

Strengthening the sense of social inequality among members of a society will lead to the promotion of violence and conflict in society. Disagreement in social cohesion among people fade away and give way to hypocrisy and enmity. There will be a kind of anger caused by differences in individuals that will affect social ties and break up individual and collective relationships. At first glance, social inequality may seem insignificant in macroeconomic and social structures, but its effects are an important issue in distribution structures because they affect the lower strata of society and gradually spread to other strata. Opportunities and justice seem to be available to them.

Social inequality directly overshadows social relations and leads society to mistrust, isolation, and lawlessness. Therefore, the first effort of planners and policy makers should be to establish justice in job, educational, cultural, welfare and recreational opportunities for all citizens, otherwise the gaps created by inequalities in society will increase day by day.

Today, I am Nasim Kardan, look at one of the inequalities of justice in Afghanistan, and I would like to introduce the person who is trapped in this inequality, how he has fallen into this trap and has endured this human persecution for a long time. Eight years ago, a man was convicted of blasphemy and sentenced to 20 years in prison after writing an unpublished article about the destruction of Buddha statues in Bamyan. A court in Kabul has sentenced him to 20 years in prison. Whose crime has not yet been proven.

The author, who is accused of blasphemy, introduced himself as follows:

I was born in the village of Malistan in Afghanistan’s Ghazni province and currently lives in Kabul. My name is Zaman Ahmadi and I also have a bachelor’s degree from the Faculty of Dari (Persian) Literature and information about jurisprudence and law.

Question: How do you experience the social difference between going to prison and after prison? Answer: There are many differences in the traditional society of Afghanistan, for example, after I get caught in every judicial body that I refer to, I am forced to read and fulfill Islamic principles; However, they have no information about my case. This action is repeated many time and again, for me it is simple in appearance but convince them this is for me very painful. At the time of arrest, I was severely tortured mentally and physically so that I could not confess to the crime; Even the judge threatened to kill me.

Question: What is your view of the community after your imprisonment? Answer: Some people look at me they persecution, which for me is very annoying. And in between my previous friends do not have to see my former position as I consider an infidel. Even when I was released from prison, no one came to my house because of me; Only my intellectual friends, whom I met through social media, came to visit me. I no longer have that previous social status; no one will even job for me so that I can make a living for my family. I am not satisfied with the administration of justice in the Afghan courts because they have sentenced me in my absence and without a lawyer, and they have decided to break the law about me, which has broken and angered me. And without any guilt, I spent eight years in prison.

Question: What is your request to the Afghan government and international human rights organizations? Answer: I call on the Afghan government and international human rights organizations to seek justice so that they do not remain silent in the face of this inequality. Because I have not committed any crime and I spent eight years in prison for not having a crime, this injustice has caused me and my family not to compensate for this great loss for years.

Memory of Afghanistan’s largest prison: When I was in the second block of the prison and was attacked by one of commanders of the Taliban terrorist group, he named Ahmad Shah Kandahari, and his subordinates, I was beaten for being a Christian.

Ahmadi wants international human rights organizations and Amnesty International to take my case seriously, as my life in Afghanistan is in danger of death.

While overseeing the trial, the Belgian Independent Global Human Rights Organization urges the judiciary in Afghanistan! In order to avoid a fair decision regarding the case of Mr. Ahmadi, they should refrain from political and religious interference. We also urge the Afghan government to be responsible for the security of Ahmadi and his family.
