Afghanistan: Taliban denies the Christian community

Afghanistan: Taliban denies the Christian community

A look at the recent report of the USCIRF

Nine days after the anniversary of the Taliban entering Kabul and taking power in Afghanistan, the American Commission on Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has published a report that shows that the Taliban practically deny the Christian community in this country.

The report states that before taking power, the Taliban had pledged to protect all ethnic groups and religious minorities. However, this commission has concluded in its investigations that not only did the Taliban acted contrary to their promise, but they have also imposed but they also imposed severe restrictions on Afghan citizens with their radical interpretations of Islam.

According to the report, the Taliban re-established a ministry called ``Amr Be Maruf'', which includes a morality police that targets women by imposing strict rules on dress and behavior, including covering their faces, and denying them freedom of movement, freedom of education, and the right. It has restricted their participation in sports and the right to work, and they are constantly looking for converts and their hiding places and underground churches.

According to Reuters, the Commission for Religious Freedom in the World said that the "violent implementation" of Taliban extremists' reading of Islam has violated the freedom of religion and belief of a wide range of Afghan citizens.

In another part of the report of the US Congressional Commission, it is stated that the Taliban and the Islamic State deny the Christian community and therefore Christians worship in secret.

In the past year, there have been reports of the forced displacement of religious and ethnic minorities in Afghanistan or their threats and intimidation.

In this report, it has been emphasized that religious and social minorities and religious dissidents have suffered the most due to the strictures of radical legislators.
