The Taliban still have not stopped oppressing Afghans. After killing the husband of social worker Zahra Hussaini, members of the Taliban said that if you want to be safe, then marry one of us. 31-year-old Hussaini decided to run away.
Iran-Taliban tensions:Afghanistan in Taliban (Taliban) After coming to power, the condition of the country has gone from bad to worse. Afghanistan has become a victim of serious economic crisis. There is a shortage of food in the country. People have to face difficulty in making a living. After the withdrawal of American troops, the situation in the country worsened. The people of Afghanistan started turning to Iran in search of work and money. Iran has become a lifeline for Afghans living along the nearly 960-kilometre (572-mile) border with Iran. About 5000 Afghans pass through here every day. Alam is that for the last few weeks the tension has started increasing here.
Last week there were clashes between the Taliban and Iranian border guards. In three cities, Afghans took out rallies against Iran. Protesters pelted stones and opened fire outside the Iranian consulate. The incident of an Afghan expatriate allegedly stabbing Iran’s holiest shrine shook the entire nation. Andrew Watkins, an Afghanistan expert at the United States Institute of Peace, says: “You face the world’s worst refugee problem, slowly igniting between everyday peace and historical bitterness.” Sometime the volcano will erupt’.
‘Marry one of us if you want to be safe’
The Taliban still have not stopped oppressing Afghans. After killing the husband of social worker Zahra Hussaini, members of the Taliban said that if you want to be safe, then marry one of us. 31-year-old Hussaini decided to run away. He and his two small children, running on foot, on motorcycles and on trucks, finally stopped only after reaching Iran. Similarly, the sword of abuse and exploitation is hanging over many people. Please tell that Hussaini works in a tailor’s shop but the owner refused to pay him salary. Similarly, his landlord threw him out of the house. She hardly manages to raise enough money to feed her children. “We have nothing and no place to go,” says Hosseini, who lives in a small room in southern Tehran.
Hakimi’s 9-year-old daughter held hostage by smugglers
At the same time, there is a story of 35-year-old Roshangol Hakimi. After the return of Taliban power in Afghanistan, she fled to Iran. His 9-year-old daughter was taken hostage by smugglers. He was released after paying a ransom a week later. Hakimi said, ‘He used to give us dirty water and hard stale bread. We were dying. Hakimi said those who were lucky are lying in the crowded streets of Tehran.
Iran accelerates repatriation of Afghan migrants
On the other hand, the United Nations Migrant Agency says that after the Taliban came to power, Iran has accelerated the repatriation of Afghan migrants because Iran itself is struggling with sanctions. The agency says that the country does not have the power to handle refugees. In the first three months of this year, 60 percent more people were sent back every month than last year. Ashley Carl, the head of the agency’s mission in Afghanistan, gave this information. He also said that many of the 251,000 who have been deported this year have suffered multiple wounds. Some faced car accidents and some ate bullets.
