Documented incidents of extremism from November 2021 to March 2022
The Taliban government has announced the establishment of a military tribunal to implement religious law in Afghanistan. Human Rights Watch in a report has claimed that more than 100 former Afghan security forces have been killed by the Taliban or have disappeared since the militants seized control.
Restricting women’s rights
Taliban rulers have imposed a dress code for female journalists and have asked TV stations to stop showing soap operas featuring women.
Treatment of minorities
The Taliban have replaced the statue of a Hazara leader declared a national martyr by the former government with a replica of the Koran.
One person and four others were wounded in an explosion that hit a vehicle in Kabul, in a suburb dominated by the Shia Hazara community- a community that has been targeted by ISIL. The national military hospital was bombed killing at least 19 people and injuring 43 more.
A mosque was bombed in the Nangarhar province during Friday prayers, killing at least three people and wounding 15 others. It is suspected that the Islamic State in Khorasan Province, ISKP (ISIS-K) – an affiliate of the ISIL (ISIS) was behind the explosion as they claimed responsibility in similar attacks previously. For instance, the ISIS-K claimed responsibility for an attack at a military hospital in Kabul that killed many including a senior Taliban commander.
As a result, the Taliban have deployed hundreds of fighters in the eastern province in its ‘shadowy war’ against the Islamic State.
