Human Rights Situation Rapidly Deteriorating In Afghanistan: Amnesty Intl

(MENAFN- Khaama Press) Amnesty International has published a detailed report about the human rights situation in Afghanistan in the past two years, adding since the Taliban's return to power, 237 people have been executed without trial.

The 416-pager article was published on Tuesday (March 28), covering human rights situations worldwide in 2021 and 2022, respectively.

Part of the report focuses on Afghanistan's situation in 2021 and 2022, and the generic assessment of the international organization indicates that the human rights situation is rapidly deteriorating in this country.

According to the report, from Nov 18 – Dec 16, more than 100 people have been flogged in public in sports stadiums in different parts of the country, and in December, an alleged criminal was publicly executed in western Farah province for the first time. The execution was described as a“hateful act” by the international community.

Amnesty International's report further states that restrictions on ordinary people's lives, women's and girls' education, as well as restrictions on the media, have increased and the ways to improve the human rights situation have come to a standstill.

Furthermore, arbitrary arrests, not allowing peaceful protests, and oppressing and killing protestors have increased, and the de facto authorities are trying to implement these acts in illegal ways.

The report highlights that previous government employees, members of the National Resistant Front (NRF), and those who do not accept the orders of the Taliban are targeted.

Quoting UNAMA, the report indicates that more than 2,100 innocent civilians were killed and injured in terrorist attacks from August 2021 to June 2022 in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, restrictions on women's rights to education and work have been described as clear violations of human rights. School girls above grade six have been deprived of attending classes, and from December onward, doors of universities and educational institutions remained closed for female students throughout Afghanistan.
