Afghan refugees in Pakistan and Iran complained of mistreatment by the host countries.
The Afghan refugees in Pakistan said that the Pakistani government has arrested them despite their having a legal document.
"Since the past several days, the Afghan refugees in Asfahan are being cruelly tortured and harassed," said Ahmad, an Afghan refugee in Iran.
"So far, no agency or the UN has shown any reaction to our conditions," said Zaman Zaman, an Afghan refugee in Pakistan.
The consulate of the Islamic Emirate in Karachi, Abdul Jabar Takhari, said that more than 900 Afghan refugees have been detained in Pakistan within the past two weeks.
"A lot of Afghans have been detained. Their number is around 900. Many of them are the Afghans who have legal documents... we were able to facilitate the release of 200 Afghans who had legal documents," he said.
The Islamic Emirate’s spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, said that the refugees should be treated in accordance with the laws.
"We request that the refugees should be treated well and according to the laws, humanity, and Islamic manners. They should not be harassed and taken to prison. If they don't have the documents, they should be returned to the country peacefully," he said.
The refugees’ rights activists called on the hosting countries to not detain and mistreat the Afghan refugees.
According to the Ministry of Refugees and Repatriation (MoRR), nearly 3 million Afghan refugees are in Pakistan, nearly 3 million in Iran and around 1 million are from other countries.
