Hazaras are Expected to Support Taliban Security Forces: Sirajuddin Haqqani


Sirajudding Haqqani, Afghanistan’s Acting Interior Minister on Thursday said that the ruling regime would pay every effort to ensure the security of Afghans, including the Hazara people.

While meeting with some key Shia figures, Haqqani said that the Hazaras are expected to support the current regime’s security forces.

Sheikh Abdul Naser Bamiyani, Seyyed Sufi Gardizi, and Ahmad Hossein Sangardost have met with the Interior Minister and praised the performance of the Taliban-led administration, and assured that “they will put all efforts to strengthen the Taliban rule”.

The Taliban senior security leader assured the safety of the Hazara people, even though attacks against the Hazara community increased after that group’s takeover of Afghanistan, resulting in the death and injury of hundreds of innocent civilians on different occasions.

Hazaras have been one of the most vulnerable ethnic groups who have experienced brutal attacks by the Islamic State-Khurasan, the Taliban, and other radical groups over the past decades in Afghanistan.

Hazaras predominantly belong to the Shia sect of Islam and have been targeted by radical groups and authoritarian regimes throughout the history of Afghanistan simply for their identity. With the recent vicious killing, Hazara diasporas and Hazara World Council are demanding the international community to recognize the groups’ ongoing genocide in their birth country.

The group’s efforts are underway and are pushing the international community and human rights groups to recognize the Hazara genocide in Afghanistan.

With the return of the Taliban to power in August 2021, the circumstances became further more challenging for the Hazara community. Like every other ethnic group including Tajik, Uzbek, and Turkmen, Hazaras have been excluded from participating in key government positions.
