Amnesty Intl, OCHA Raise Concerns About Women's Rights in Afghanistan

Amnesty International and the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) have expressed concern about the violation of the rights of women and girls in Afghanistan.

The statement of Amnesty International said that the "Taliban" did not fulfill what they promised about women's rights in Afghanistan.

This organization has called for an end to the violation of women's rights in Afghanistan.

In a part of the statement of Amnesty International said: “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 violations with full impunity.”

Amnesty International called for respect and guaranteed protection of human rights in Afghanistan.

At the same time, OCHA also expressed concern about the increase in human rights violations against women in Afghanistan and called Afghanistan one of the most challenging countries in the world for women.

OCHA added: “Even before the Taliban de facto authorities (DfA) took control of Afghanistan in August 2021, it was already one of the world’s most difficult countries in which to be a woman, both personally and professionally. But since the takeover, the hurdles facing women – especially those living in rural areas – have only grown.”

"We witness that any demonstration or any protest is suppressed and protesters are illegally imprisoned and tortured," said  Zaman Sultani, Amnesty International’s South Asia Researcher.

"Our request to the government of the Islamic Emirate is to reach the rights of all the people of Afghanistan, especially women, to open the closed doors, and everything that is the right of women in the Afghan society today should be given to them," said Tafsir Syahposh, a women’s rights activist.

But the Islamic Emirate, rejecting the findings of these two institutions, said that the rights of all citizens of the country are protected.

"In Afghanistan, people have their rights and we are trying to ensure that the rights of our people are still respected. The government is Islamic, it recognizes the rights of the people and has pledged to grant them their rights and they do not have to worry," Mujahid said.

Meanwhile, the 16-day annual campaign aimed at supporting women around the world was launched on November 25 and runs to December 10, which is International Human Rights Day.
