Amnesty International once again demanded a stop to the deportations and detentions of Afghan refugees by Pakistan.
Amnesty International in a statement said that this action of Pakistan started while Afghanistan is in a humanitarian crisis.
According to the statement, Amnesty International said that Pakistan must respect the rights of Afghan refugees.
In response to the deportation of Afghan refugees, Amnesty International asks Pakistan to stop the process of deporting and detaining Afghan refugees.
“For decades, tens of thousands of Afghan refugees have made Pakistan their home. However, this recent decision will force Afghans back to danger in Afghanistan. Notably, the deportation pose a significant threat to the human rights of Afghan women and girls, including their rights to education, work, and freedom of movement. For most Afghan women and girls, their only chance of gaining formal education is through staying in Pakistan,” Amnesty International statement said.
“The statement of the United Nations office also mentions that the Pakistani police, by misbehaving, extorting refugees, and harassing elderly people, homeless women and children, can have a very negative effect on the mood and mental state of Afghan refugees," said Alireza Karimi, a Refugee’s Rights activist.
Political analysts do not think that this action of Pakistan is appropriate in the current situation.
“Since the establishment of Pakistan in 1947, it has been fomenting the same issues and trying to torture the people of Afghanistan, and as you can see, it has looked at four thousand containers of traders there. Because the depth of Pakistan's strategy is to destroy Afghanistan,” said Mohammad Matin Mohammadkhil.
Meanwhile, a few days ago, the consulate of the Islamic Emirate in Karachi, Pakistan, said that since the month of October, nearly 400,000 Afghan refugees have returned to the country from Torkham and Spin Boldak crossings, and this process is still ongoing.
