Commentary

Wednesday, December 12, 2018

Kabul (BNA) In a country where for dozens of years’ war continuing talking about human rights would be difficult.
BNA military affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes Afghanistan is for tens of years in flame of imposed war and its people are suffering from the pains and hardships have caused this imposed war.
However, it should not be forgotten that the Afghan community in close cooperation of international community is moving toward a democratic and new society. Considering this important point, has established independent commissions under the name of Human Rights Independent Commission in order to provide the ground for punishment of those violate human rights.
Unfortunately, so far such an opportunity has not provided, but the number of terrorists has increased, new terrorist groups created, using religion as means fight against religion, using the sacred terms of man and freedom fight against man and freedom.
The majority of Afghan people believe those who produce terrorist groups and use them for achieving their political and military objectives in the region and in the world, in reality are main violators of human rights in the world.
There is a general belief that no terrorist group can follow its anti – human rights objectives even for a month without the assistance of foreign countries intelligence services.
In any case, Afghanistan is passing through a difficult political and military phase; the people are talking seriously about war and peace all over the country.
Discussions on human rights issues and protecting the humane values were the pivotal of peace talks with armed oppositions during the last 17 years. The consequences of the talks should not ensure the immunity of war criminals and should not harm democracy and the rule of people. These are concerns that the people present. The people’s will and demands should be observed and look at human rights issues through the eyes of people  who have given sacrifices for years and tortured for years under various names.
