6The recorded documents for the past 14 years on civilian causalities indicate that Taliban are the main infringers of the Human rights law in Afghanistan and the numbers of the causalities is big catastrophic officials in Independent Human rights commission in Afghanistan said, claiming that most of the civilians were the victims of the Taliban attacks.

Taliban have entered into Kabul the capital city of Afghanistan on 1996 and run their Governmental called “ Da Afghanistan the Islami Emarat” for 5 years, while they were on power they have only had relations and ties with few Governments specially with Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, in the long run after the World business twin Towers in United States on 9,11, 2001, US air forces have began pounding Taliban shelters in Afghanistan and they were made to leave the power for the a collation then to transition Government, since that Taliban have been engaging with Afghan security forces in different parts of the country.

Officials in Independent Human right commission in Afghanistan have stated that from 2009 up to 2014 40 thousand civilians whom were killed by Taliban have been recorded.

The number of the causalities from the beginning of Taliban Government up to 2014 reached up to 270,000 during the National Unity Government it increased up to 30,000 persons, while UNAMA causality numbers from 2009 up to 2014 reaches up to 22940 persons.

But the US congress Investigation services has released the number of the civilian causalities from 2001 up to 2016 more to 310,00 persons.

Independent Human rights commission in Afghanistan commissioner Latifa Sultani said,” Independent Human rights commission in Afghanistan has collected the 400,00 civilians have been killed by Taliban from 2009 up to now which is a shocking number and counted as one of the human rights law violating acts.”

Meanwhile Mp Kamal Safi said,” If Taliban believe in killing, launching suicide attacks or to drop the bloods could reach to power then they are making a big mistake.”

After 5 years of power Taliban were defeated by the International community and former President Hamid Karzai came into power, for the first time Mr. Karzai has entered into the political society with anti-Taliban views in the long run the former President Hamid Karzia’s views was changed towards Taliban and USA during the interviews it was revealed.

President Karzai replied to CNN correspondent said,” that I m a puppet, Americans have helped Afghanistan tremendously, the American people have feeling for Afghanistan for which we are very grateful, the US administration have helped Afghanistan, if we are called puppets or if I m called puppet that’s we are grateful to America then be it, let that be my nick name.”

After a while when he was interviewed with BBC Persian correspondent he replied and said,” that where do the Taliban come from?, Taliban are Afghans, If they are Afghans and if Afghan security forces take the control of a place we are also Afghans then in that case if we take the control of a place why do we hold such right, if we are Afghans who does an Afghan say to other Afghan you can’t take the control of a place.”

The recent remarks of the former President Hamid Karzia somehow indicate supports for Taliban which has provoked the harsh reactions of the senate members.

Senator Mohamamd Asif Sediqee said,” the recent remarks of former President indicates supports for Taliban, whom were the slaughters of the Afghan security forces during his presidency, this should be taken into consideration seriously.”

“The recent pose of the former President Hamid Karzia somehow indicates supports for Taliban which is irresponsibility and illogical statements Senator Sami Faisal said”.

Hamid Karzai has been criticized by the politicians and was accused for supporting Taliban, releasing of Taliban from Bagram prison and calling Taliban brother direct the minds of everyone closer to Taliban supporter.

Two former US defense secretaries advise against pulling out all troops

Two former US defense secretaries have both said they would advise President Joe Biden against withdrawing all US troops from Afghanistan.

This comes amid the Biden administration’s ongoing review of the US-Taliban agreement signed a year ago in Doha, which stipulates the withdrawal of all foreign troops from the country by May 1.

However, in an interview with Michael O’Hanlon from the Brookings Institution, former defense secretary Mark Esper said the withdrawal deal negotiated with the Taliban was always contingent on conditions to be met by the Taliban.

“We implemented our side of it in good faith, but it’s fair to say the Taliban have not,” Esper said, noting the Taliban have not delivered on any of their key promises, namely a reduction in violence, good faith negotiations with the Afghan government, and a full break with al-Qaeda.

Esper said he would have opposed Trump’s post-election order to reduce U.S. troop strength in Afghanistan to 2,500, which he says has effectively undercut any leverage the U.S. had over the Taliban.

“I made this clear when I was in the administration at the end, I thought we should hold it 4,500 until the conditions on the ground were met.”

Esper said Trump has put Biden in a tough situation and said: “We have to make sure that again, Afghanistan doesn’t become a safe haven for terrorism. And I say that as somebody who wants to get out of there as badly as anyone else.”

Meanwhile, speaking to the Washington Post, Robert Gates, who served under former president Barak Obama, said the “least bad option’ is for the U.S. to stay until the Taliban get the message that the U.S. won’t leave until they get serious about peace.

“My view is that I think the steps the president has taken in terms of hinting that we might not pull the rest of our troops out on the first of May is exactly right. I think that we do need to take into consideration the possibility of having a presence in Afghanistan at roughly the current level, or maybe even slightly more, along with our NATO allies.”

“We have about 2,500 troops there now,” Gates says, and they need to stay, he argues, “for an indefinite period of time, at a minimum until that presence forces the Taliban to realize that they can’t just take all the marbles once we leave.”

The Presidential Palace (ARG) stated Monday that neither the Afghan government nor independent sources that fund development projects or provide aid will fall victim to Taliban extortion tactics.

According to ARG, the decision not to pay bribes to Taliban in insecure areas across the country was discussed at a national procurement session on Sunday.

ARG said some villages are being deprived of aid because of the Taliban’s habit of demanding bribes.

ARG also stated that it is not prepared to give Taliban money that is meant to alleviate the plight of the people.

According to ARG out of 11,000 villages across the country that were identified to benefit from government-assisted projects, only 10,000 villages benefitted.

ARG’s statement came on the heels of a Facebook post by First Vice President Amrullah Saleh early Monday who raised the issue after his daily 6.30am security meeting.

He stated that sources of funding for these villages will not be held to ransom by the Taliban in order to gain access to insecure areas.

“This anti-human performance by the Taliban has left a number of villages in the country deprived of aid,” said Saleh.

He said 1,000 villages have not received the necessary aid as government has “faced a security problem and we are not ready to share the bread of the people with blackmail terrorists.”

The discussion started with the introduction of a study on the active role of women, especially local women, in the Afghanistan peace process and peacebuilding efforts.

Referring to the activities of female members of the negotiating team on working committees, Gailani said the role of these women has been influential and important.

Gailani praised women’s resilience in the face of problems they face and said that through history, Afghan women have played a role in conflict resolution.

According to the State Ministry for Peace, Gailani stressed the important role of women in Islamic countries in the Afghanistan peace process and the importance of their support of Afghan women.

“Peace makes sense with the active presence of women, as human rights and women’s rights, war victims’ and minorities’ rights must be acceptable to all parties and should be preserved in the process.”

She also said the support of the international community was extremely important and valuable for Afghan women.
