Afghanistan: Negligence on the rights of Sikhs, Human Rights Institution criticized the Government

Negligence on the rights of Sikhs, the human rights institutions criticized the government.

The Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission criticized the government for not being serious regarding the rights of Sikh and Hindu minorities. The commission called on the government on Wednesday to protect the Hindus and Sikhs since their lives and properties are under threat.

In an old part of Kabul in March lots of Sikhs were killed and wounded when a group of suicide bombers and assailants armed with guns attacked a Gurudwara. The Daesh terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attack.

The attack that was latest of campaign against the religious minorities, caused mass refuge of Afghan Sikhs and Hindus to abroad mostly to India.

A recent report revealed that the last group of Sikhs and Hindus have left their land and home in Ghazni province and taken refuge in other countries. The Commission said that they were aware of it.

It said that the mass migration of Sikhs and Hindus indicates that the government is not serious about their protection. The government, according to national and international laws is responsible for the rights of minorities.

But the commission says that Afghan Sikhs and Hindus have been in a state of emergency for a long time.

‘We want the end of the war that is the major element of tragedy in the country,’ the commission said Wednesday in a statement.
