LONDON: Right now, Afghanistan is the most dangerous country in the world in terms of security, human rights violations, discrimination and persecution of the weak, minorities and the poor. Far worse than Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Sudan or any other nation on the face of the earth.
Refugees and asylum seekers from Afghanistan face imminent threat to their lives and human rights violations at the hands of an extremely corrupt and weak government with powerful warlords in control and the world’s most dangerous terrorist groups.
According to Ashraf Ghani, the president of Afghanistan, there are currently around 20 international terrorist organisations operating in Afghanistan, including the most lethal ISIS, Taliban, Al Qaeeda and Haqqani Group.
Thousands of civilians are tortured, imprisoned and killed by terrorist groups and warlords in the government. Far more civilians are killed in Afghanistan than any other country in the world. Those fleeing to neighbouring countries like Iran and Pakistan are shot dead on the border or thrown alive into rivers.
A corrupt government is part of the human rights breaches. It does not only fail in protecting the people but is part of an evil cycle that harms innocent civilians.
We believe that forced deportation of Afghan asylum seekers and refugees to Afghanistan is the biggest violation of human morality of modern times. It must stop now.
