Mujahid called the UN report "biased"
Simultaneously with the publication of the report of Richard Bennett, the UN special rapporteur on human rights in Afghanistan, Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, called this report "complicated and biased". According to him, this report is the hostile position of this organization against the Islamic Emirate and this group condemns this position.
Afghan Voice Agency (AVA): Last night, Mujahid said in a statement that Bennett has "complained" about hundreds of developments in Afghanistan in the past year and has pointed to a few specific cases based on misconceptions and false information.
When presenting his report to the Human Rights Council, Richard Bennett, the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights for Afghanistan, warned about the human rights situation in the country and said, "Afghans are caught in a human rights crisis that the world seems unable to address."
He added that there is no other country in the world like Afghanistan where women and girls are deprived of their basic human rights so quickly just because of their gender.
The spokesman of the Islamic Emirate said that there is no threat to the lives of women in Afghanistan. He added that no woman is killed in wars and raids, nor does she lose her loved ones.
Mujahid also stated: "Now no one can look down on the honor of the Afghan woman, and no innocent children of any Afghan woman have been thrown in prisons."
The spokesperson of the Islamic Emirate has said that universities are open to women and girls and thousands of women are working in education, higher education, public health, national ID and passport offices, airports, police, media, banks and other needed sectors.
The spokesman of the Islamic Emirate further said that all the rights of ethnic and religious minorities in Afghanistan are protected, "None of them have been killed or imprisoned, nor have they been prevented from worshiping, nor have they been accused of any charges."
But Richard Bennett has warned at the meeting of the Human Rights Council that the Hazaras and other Shia communities in Afghanistan are facing "systematic" attacks that could be an international crime.
After the establishment of the Islamic Emirate, Shiites have been the target of deadly attacks many times. According to human rights activists, these attacks are an example of genocide.
Some Sunni sects, including Sufis, have also been the targets of deadly attacks. Likewise, Sikh and Hindu minorities have also left Afghanistan due to security threats.
The spokesman of the Islamic Emirate has said that hundreds of attacks on places of worship have been prevented, and if exceptional cases have occurred, the perpetrators have been arrested and sentenced to severe punishment.
Mujahid further mentioned the general amnesty of this group; while in her report, Bennett said that the Islamic Emirate did not fulfill this promise.
He added that the United Nations report "biasedly did not mention all these positive developments and did not praise them."
Mujahid added: "This inverted judgment shows that this great global organization is being openly abused and false information is being spread from its address."
The spokesperson of the Islamic Emirate has said that the "irresponsible and complex" statements are broadcast from the address of the United Nations, and the hostile position of this organization is against the Islamic Emirate, and this group condemns this position.
