Afghanistan Faces World's Worst Human Rights Crisis: Nasir Ahmad Andisha

(MENAFN- Khaama Press) Afghanistan's representative at the United Nations Human Rights Council said that Afghanistan is experiencing the worst human rights crisis in the world under Taliban rule.

Nasir Ahmad Andisha added that the Taliban, by violating human and women's rights, are planting the seeds of a dangerous ideology in the minds of men.

Mr. Andisha, the representative of Afghanistan at the United Nations Human Rights Council, made this statement on Tuesday, June 18, at the council's fifty-sixth session, saying that the Taliban have issued 52 decrees against women in the past year.

He emphasized that the Taliban's policies and actions against women are contrary to international human rights laws and various conventions.

Mr. Andisha said that the Taliban have proven over the past three years that they lack the willingness and ability to fulfill their commitments under the United Nations Charter.

He added that granting legitimacy to the Taliban, especially at the upcoming Doha meeting, should be avoided.

He called for the Human Rights Council's attention to creating a cohesive mechanism to defend the rights of Afghan citizens and stressed the need to hold the Taliban accountable.

Since the Taliban took power in Afghanistan, women's rights have been severely restricted, including education beyond the sixth grade and employment opportunities.

Furthermore, women have faced limitations on their free movement and other basic rights, exacerbating the humanitarian and rights crisis in the country.
