Minorities being persecuted in Afghanistan
The Taliban have been accused of insulting other religions by following the line of Islamic fundamentalism, but the organization has recently claimed to convert itself. Atrocities against minority Afghan Sikhs and Hindus have continued in the war-torn areas of Afghanistan for decades. In particular, the area of Paktia used to be a stronghold of the Mujahideen and Taliban/Haqqani groups since the 1980s. The terror of the Taliban was such that the government of Afghanistan had no interference here.
