Human rights violations in Afghanistan have increased to an unprecedented level since the Taliban takeover. The international community and human rights institutes have failed to prevent the devastating abuses. The Taliban takeover and its brutal violation of human rights in Afghanistan will have serious consequences, not only in Afghanistan but around the world, unless strong and constructive action is taken. This paper highlights the current human rights situation in Afghanistan with special emphasis on women and girls and addresses why and how Afghanistan ended up this way.
