by Aamaj News

Amnesty International releasing a statement stated that the Taliban have started a new era of human rights abuse in Afghanistan, warning that the country is at the brink of irreversible ruin.

“Not only the Taliban de-facto authorities have broken their promise of protecting Afghan people’s rights, especially women’s rights, they have resumed the cycle of violence and committed a litany of human rights abuses and violation with full impunity,” the organization said.

International Amnesty referring to Taliban’s tough restrictions said that the group has systematically dismantled key institutions for human rights protection in past one year.

The statement reads that the fundamental rights of women and girls have been stripped. Thousands of people have been arbitrarily detained, tortured, disappeared, and even killed. Journalists, activists, human rights defenders, artists, academics, religious and ethnic minorities remain at particular risk.

The organization calls for immediate stop of this situation.

The humanitarian organization calls on international community to force the Taliban to respect human rights, and in particular they must open girls’ schools and let the women to go to work.

“Establish effective and transparent investigation and accountability mechanisms that delivers justice for human rights violations and war crimes including but not limited to enforced disappearances, arbitrary arrest, unlawful detention, extract judicial killings, through fair trials without recourse to death penalty,” Amnesty International concluded.
