Taliban’s false promises exposed, 6 members of Shia family executed, Amnesty releases extermination report

Kabul: A leading international human rights group released a damning report on Friday about six members of a minority Shia family in Afghanistan who were killed by the Taliban earlier this summer. Amnesty International has accused Afghanistan’s new rulers of gross human rights violations and mistreatment of minorities. A 12-year-old child was also among the dead, the group said. It said the killings took place on June 26 in Ghor province, a testament to how the Taliban have failed to establish an inclusive government since seizing power a year ago.

According to Amnesty, on the night of June 26, Taliban forces attacked the home of Mohammad Muradi, a member of the Hazara community and a former security officer, in Ghor. Moradi also led a local militia fighting the Taliban in 2020 and 2021. After being captured by the Taliban, Moradi tried to flee to Iran, but failed and recently returned home to Ghor’s Lal-Wa Sarjungal district where he had been hiding.

According to the report, Moradi herself and two other children, a son and a daughter (12) were injured first and the daughter died later. According to this, the wounded Muradi surrendered to the Taliban, but he was dragged from his house and killed.

Muradi’s relatives were also killed
Three other people – Moradi’s nephew, Ghulam Haider Mohammadi, and two other relatives – were also killed, Amnesty said. Amnesty said its report was based on eight separate interviews and an analysis of photographs and video footage taken after the killings. Amnesty Secretary General Agnes Callamard said: “The Taliban must stop these killings and ensure the safety of all Afghans.” There was no immediate reaction from the Taliban to Amnesty’s report.
