Taliban rejected the report of United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) regarding the violation of human rights in Afghanistan and extrajudicial killings.

The Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, tweeted that no one is allowed to resort to extrajudicial killings and arbitrary arrests.

“If a person commits extrajudicial killing and arbitrary arrest, that one would be considered as a criminal and face the Sharia law,” Mujahid added.

United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) in its recent report has said that extrajudicial killings have taken place under the rule of Taliban in Afghanistan.

It added that extrajudicial killings, torture and ill-treatment, arbitrary arrests and detentions have taken place after Taliban’s domination in Afghanistan.

The organization revealed 2106 civilian casualties (700 killed, 1406 wounded) predominantly caused by improvised explosive device (IED) attacks attributed to ISIL-KP and unexploded ordnance between mid-August 2021 to mid-June 2022.

The report added that 160 extrajudicial killings, 178 arbitrary arrests and detentions, 23 instances of incommunicado detention and 56 instances of torture and ill-treatment of former ANDSF and government officials carried out by the Taliban authorities.
