Mohibullah Taib, Counsellor of Human Rights at the Permanent Mission of Afghanistan in Geneva has said that the Taliban continue to forcefully displace ordinary people in different parts of Afghanistan.

The envoy of the Afghan Mission in Geneva warned that forceful displacement by the de facto authorities of Afghanistan can lead to human trafficking in the country.  

While speaking at the United Nations Human Rights Council, Mohibullah Taib, the permanent representative of Afghanistan in Geneva said forceful and systematic displacements in north and west of Afghanistan have left ordinary people with no option but to flee their home country.

Mohibullah Taib has warned that the victims of the forceful displacements will remain without any help or protection of any kind.

Since Taliban officials have closed shelters and protection services for victims of human trafficking, Mr. Taib stated that extra measures should be taken to protect the displaced people in different parts of the country.

Over the past two years, several reports emerged that the Taliban have forcefully displaced people in Daikundi, Takhar, Baghlan, Faryab, Panjshir and Sar-e Pul provinces of Afghanistan.  

Worst of all, the Taliban have reached a settlement with the Pakistani government to relocate Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistani (TTP) members to northern parts of the country. The move has already prompted widespread condemnations by the people of Afghanistan and former government politicians.

Some anti-Taliban groups and movements describe relocating TTP members to northern parts of Afghanistan as extremely dangerous, which may even lead to a civil war and partition of the country.
