In the name of Almighty Allah
The statement of Civil Society and Human Rights Organisation
on the occasion of Shooting a women by insurgent groups in the district of
Shinwari of the Parwan province in Afghanistan
Recently Taliban committed a brutal act by shooting a woman in public, where many people were witnesses of it in the Shinwari district of Parwan province. The executers of this inhuman action have not been arrested because of their horrifying crime. Escaping of perpetrators of such fierce crime from trail by any means puts an emphasis on the lack of the implementation of justice. This brutal act has badly stressed Afghan people especially Afghan women. The women in Afghanistan are the main victims of the inhuman operations of anti governmental forces. Meanwhile it proves that the state of Afghanistan is very weak in protecting of Afghan women. The lack of security is one of the main reasons of the extreme human rights violations and humanitarian law violations in Afghanistan . These inhuman actions against civilians have roughly damaged the relationship between the Afghan citizens with the Afghan state and strongly impacted the legitimacy of the Afghan state among the Afghan population.
• The Civil Society and Human Rights Organization strongly condemn this brutal action and would like to call upon the Afghan security forces to bring the criminals of this action to trial and justice.
• The Civil Society and Human Rights Organization would like to call upon all civil society actors, human rights and women rights defenders to strongly pay attention and take action. Cooperation is needed and advocacy for justice and human rights values with special focus on women’s rights in Afghanistan is an obligation.
• The Civil Society and Human Rights Organization would like to call upon international military and security forces to support the Afghan military institutions for ensuring and activating the role of women, security and justice according to the 1325 of the United Nation Security Council Resolution.
The Civil Society and Human Rights Organization would like to appreciate the work of the Afghan media in covering such important news in their programs. Media coverage of these brutal acts, informs the Afghan civil society, the Afghan people and the international community about inhuman actions of Taliban and other insurgent groups in Afghanistan.
