Nei giorni scorsi avevamo già pubblicato un articolo relativo all’enorme emergenza dei rifugiati afghani in Pakistan. Ci è ora giunto, da Kabul, un interessante contributo di Rohina Bawer, Communication Officer di AHRAM Project, (Afghanistan Human Rights Action and Mobilisation) che, sotto la supervisione del COSPE e l’implementazione di strutture come HAWCA (Humanitarian Assistence for Women and Children dell’Afghanistan) e del CSHRN (Civil Society and Human Rights Network). Il progetto cercherà di sostenere il rispetto dei diritti umani in 34 province dell’Afghanistan al fine di migliorare le libertà fondamentali e aiutando chi tali diritti, concretamente li difende. L’obbiettivo dichiarato è quello di fornire sostegno e strumenti di azione alla società civile, in particolar modo alle donne e ai bambini. Ringraziamo l’autrice per la sua testimonianza e per il valore delle informazioni che ci invia e auspichiamo di averla spesso come nostra collaboratrice. Il testo è ovviamente in inglese ma di semplice lettura.
Afghanistan is not secure for returning of refugees!
The Taliban and other insurgents are still responsible for most civilian casualties. In Afghanistan real people are the most victim of this continuous unforeseen war, the last year was a much blooded years for the afghan people, kunduz for instance NATO warplanes bombard the village in the kunduz province in one day killed more than 30 civilians including small babies, toddlers, young boys and girls among the victims. It shows people of Afghanistan with strong consciousness to be fighters and this get it from many years from sorrow, losing their beloved and homes, they are suffered, all civilians they are fighters and fighter means nothing to have to lose they are ready to work for the country, in the meantime kunduz after the attacked hundreds of kunduz residents in protest against this heinous crime, marched in kunduz city, with carrying corpses of the victims. The protestors chanted slogans against us occupiers and as their local lackeys. They demanded punishment for the perpetrators of this horror and immediate withdrawal foreign occupying forces from Afghanistan. People of Afghanistan is burning on one hand from the Taliban and conflicts and on the other hand from indiscriminating attacks and bombardment of NATO forces.
Instability and war environment of Afghanistan is another issues for the afghans, Pakistan ended afghan registered in February 2007, And left Afghanistan after 2007 for arrange of reasons comparable to those who left the country after the fall of the Taliban government in the late 2001.

The 76-page report, “Pakistan Coercion, UN Complicity: The Mass Forced Return of Afghan Refugees,” documents Pakistan’s abuses and the role of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in promoting the exodus. Through enhancing its “voluntary repatriation” program and failing to publicly call for an end to coercive practices, the UN agency has become complicit in Pakistan’s mass refugee abuse.
The UN and UNHCR must help the afghans especially afghans refugees, here in poor country and another side war not accepting the refugees should come to Afghanistan at least in the moment, Afghanistan is not secure for the refugees, they can find food and safe their life’s in the other countries. this huge influx from Pakistan happened from the first time in the afghan history, if refugees forced return to Afghanistan as they faced with closed schools, lockage of electricity and fighting and handover of the provinces to the Taliban make many afghans to flee to Iran and Pakistan or accept hard way of fleeing to Europe.
UN refugee agency did not stand up publicly to Pakistan’s harassment and abuses, international donors should step in to press the government and UN to protect the remaining afghan refugees in Pakistan.
Refugees in Pakistan and Iran face with a serious risk harm and to forcibly return a person to a place where they would be face a real risk of persecution, torture or threat to life.
