Religious freedom in Afghanistan ‘drastically deteriorated’ after Taliban took over, US commission says


The Taliban now rules Afghanistan ‘in a similar manner to the way it ruled the country from 1996 to 2001,’ the commission found
After a year in power, the Taliban have ruthlessly suppressed any type of religion that doesn’t fit their radical view of Islam, according to the U.S. In a study released on Tuesday, the Commission on International Religious Freedom stated.

Ministry for Propagation of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, which has tightly enforced “what they consider to be Islamically proper dress and behavior,” was reinstated by the Taliban.
According to the U.S. panel, “the Taliban has continued to administer Afghanistan in a manner similar to that in which it dominated the country from 1996 to 2001, despite officially vowing to change and inclusivity.”
The Taliban preaches a hardline version of Sunni Islam and has killed dozens of Shia Muslims over the past year. The Hazara people, an ethnic minority that practices Shia Islam, have been displaced by the thousands as the Taliban forced them out of their homes.


Afghanistan’s last president, Ashraf Ghani, rejects comparison to Ukraine’s Zelenskyy, says he’s ‘lived an honorable life’

The last internationally recognized president of Afghanistan has no interest in assigning blame for the fall of his government or taking any responsibility for it.
Ashraf Ghani, who was elected in 2014 and has been living in exile for eight years, said in a recent interview with CNN that “we need to focus on what is currently in front of us.” “I do not have the luxury to engage in finger-pointing or a sense of betrayal. Our country is in serious straits.”

In the interview, Ghani attacked the “very poor” peace deal that the Trump administration struck with the Taliban and that the Biden administration upheld when it withdrew the final American troops nearly exactly one year ago. The agreement, struck in February 2020, specified a timetable for the withdrawal of foreign troops in return for the Taliban’s pledge to guarantee that Afghanistan wouldn’t serve as a refuge for global terrorist groups. Hundreds of Taliban fighters were then released from Afghan prisons as a result.
