The Afghan Global Diaspora Council requests significant and immediate attention of the United Nations, Human Rights defenders and other relevant organizations to this issue.
It is a clear and undeniable fact that for decades, the police, militias and the military and intelligence establishment of Pakistan have been oppressing and torturing displaced Afghans and immigrants in various cities of that country.
It should be remembered that Pakistan’s security and intelligence network have not spared any kind of inhuman and cruel practices against displaced Afghans, and even published immoral Video clips of Afghan women .
Likewise, the security forces and militias of Pakistan have been forcing innocent Afghans not to enter Pakistan and not carried out proper procedure along imposed Durand line checkpoints and crossing ways.
According to mass media reports, 1200 Afghans have been captured and beaten in Sindh province of Pakistan, despite have legal documents they were imprisoned in Karachi and Jamshoro cities, one of them in the name of Taj Mohammad died under torture whose body is kept in a mortuary of charitable organization called CHHIPA MORGUE, it is worth mentioning that thousands of dollars in bribe were demanded in exchange for their release.
It should be noted that the inappropriate and oppressive treatment of the Pakistan government and security forces towards Afghans is not only against the 1951 Refugees convention but also against the fourth article of the Geneva agreement signed between Afghanistan and Pakistan on 14th April,1988 which according to the accepted accord, the voluntary return of Afghan refugees were accepted.
Referring to past events, Pakistan’s security and intelligence agencies recruited and use the hundreds of thousands displaced Afghans in that country as a pressure targets, commercial and trade benefits and as a strategic and proxy tools against rival countries including children brainwashed in Madrassas for suicide attacks in Afghanistan and elsewhere.
Despite the above problems the displaced Afghans continued to live non-political and have performed considerable services in the economic growth of that country.
Therefore, considering the problems mentioned in the statement,The Afghan Global Diaspora Council respectfully requests, the United Nations, Human Rights and other organizations to immediately address the problems facing Afghans in Pakistan,Iran and Turkey to interact with them according to 1951 Refugees convention and stop their deportation.
