The Human Rights Watch (HRW) annual world report which summarizes human rights conditions in over 100 countries and territories worldwide in 2021, called the situation of Afghanistan as fragile.

According to this report in the six months before Taliban’s takeover, fighting between former government forces and Taliban caused a sharp rise in civilian casualties.

This report reiterated the Taliban’s victory propelled Afghansitan from humanitarian crisis to catastrophe.

The HRW annual report added that after Taliban’s domination, women’s rights have been trampled under feet, and Taliban limited women’s presence on media.

According to this report Taliban have limited the activities of media outlets which led to closure of some media outlets as a result journalists left the country.

“In many cities, the Taliban searched for, threatened, and sometimes detained or executed former members of the Afghan National Security Forces (ANSF), officials of the former government, or their family members,” this report added.

The HRW annual report also pointed the attacks of ISIS-K on  mosques, schools, and Hazara Shia.
