New Delhi: To stop human rights violations in Afghanistan, the Taliban has made a condition that the world should first recognize its government. Zabihullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman and deputy minister of the Ministry of Information and Culture, said concerns over allegations of human rights violations would be addressed if the global community recognized the Islamic Emirate's government.
World should recognize our Govt: Taliban
The Taliban's response comes after the head of the European Union delegation to Afghanistan, Andreas Van Brandt, expressed concern over human rights in the country. "To keep criticizing us on rights violations without recognizing us is a one-sided approach," Mujahid said. It would be good for them (the global community) to treat us responsibly.
Amnesty said, terrorists are persecuting people in Afghanistan:
Human rights body Amnesty International has accused the Taliban of committing various atrocities on ordinary people since taking over the reins of the country. Amnesty and two other organizations have said the Taliban did not delay in destroying human rights. Amnesty has accused the Taliban of killing civilians and surrendering soldiers, and particularly of imposing restrictions on women's freedom.
Let us tell you that the new ruler of Afghanistan, the Taliban, has appointed one of its ambassadors to the UN in the midst of the ongoing United Nations General Assembly in New York. The Taliban has appointed Mohammad Sohail Shaheen as the UN representative. Along with this, the Taliban has asked the UN to give their representative in New York an opportunity to address the gathering.
Taliban Foreign Minister Aamir Khan Muttaki has written a letter to United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres regarding this regard. Muttaki has demanded in this letter that he should also be given a chance to speak in the UNGA on behalf of Afghanistan. The UNGA meeting is scheduled to end next Monday.
