Meeting with the Taliban’s Deputy Prime Minister’s Office and the influential Hazara people

Abdul Kabir, the deputy political head of the Taliban, said in a meeting with a number of Hazara politicians in Kabul that there is no place for discrimination, bigotry and nationalism in the administration of this group.

However, no Hazara citizen of Afghanistan has a place in the main decision-making body of the Taliban. In the past two and a half years, the Taliban has rejected requests for the participation of other ethnic groups in power and the creation of an inclusive government.

Abdul Kabir told the representatives of the Hazaras that there is no place for any kind of discrimination, bigotry or nationalism in the Islamic system, but the main goal is to serve the people. And he also emphasized that in the Taliban system, no one can encroach on the rights of another.

However, at first, women were deprived of their rights and there is no institution that will take care of the needs of women and girls. Also, the role of non-Pashtun ethnic groups such as Tajiks and Uzbeks in the Taliban system is symbolic, and Hazaras and other non-Pashtun ethnic and religious groups do not have a share in the Taliban’s cabinet and decision-making.
