Afghan female artist and actress Sahar Parniyan has shifted her home from western Kabul city to an unknown location after she received death threats from unknown individuals.

Sahar Parniyan used to perform in Afghan drama serials and TV shows with Benafsha who was murdered by unknown men during the Eid days in capital Kabul.

She says she has been threatened by unknown individuals not to appear in TV channels before her colleague Benafsha was assassinated.

In an exclusive interview with DW Sahar Parniyan said she received warnings from unknown individuals following the death of Benafsha and she was scolded and was told that she was next target to be assassinated.

Sahar Parniyan is well known for her roles in famous Afghan Drama Serials “Behsht-e-Khamosh” and Comedy Serial “Wezarat Khana”.

She said that she will not be able to continue to her activities if her security was not guaranteed and that living in Kabul city has become difficult for her following the death of her colleague.

Parniyan said she does know from whom she was receiving warning messages however she plays a secretary role in TV serial “Wezarat Khana” or the Ministry which mostly reflects growing corruption, sabotage and lack of performance of the government organizations.

In the meantime she said it is yet not clear if her role in TV serial has been the main motive behind the death threats by unknown individuals.

She also said that she has not faced any warnings or barriers from the Afghan government while performing in the drama serial but reports suggest that she was earlier warned by Taliban group.

  1. There are too may females who are acting and doing more aggressive roles and jobs then Miss Sahar did, so I think she is looking for asylum and we have witnessed such kind of claims in the past.
    Rafiq from Kabul

  2. The Taliban still have not killed any artist.The majority mysterious murders stems from the family violence.

  3. She and two other girls were living in a house where they were having illegal relationships with different men. However they refused another group of men, they were attacked. This is as per police who have a lot of experience in this sort of cases.

    Many women are in government positions as well as in TV but are not attacked. But why these girls, makes you wonder!!!

  4. Ali, you are a liar and you do not know these girls at all. What you say is only rumour quoted from nobodies in the press and is not to be believed. Shame on you for spreading slander and idle speculation, endagering others’ lives.

  5. Ali you are right. I know her too. She used to live in Iran and she had a Iranian husband. Then I don’t know what happened then they divorced.

  6. As far as i know she was receive a warning from hazara boys becouase she is a hazara and she she was always with none hazara boy and make film and chil with those difreind NEJAD pepoe. These kind of job is aganst hazaras..
