Former Women’s Affairs Minister: International Response to Afghanistan’s Humanitarian Crisis Must be Rethought

Belfast, Northern Ireland – Hasina Safi, the former Women’s Affairs Minister in Afghanistan and a prominent advocate for women’s rights, has criticized the international community’s response to the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. In an interview with Al Jazeera, Safi expressed concern that Afghanistan, now under Taliban rule, is feeling abandoned and forgotten.

Following the Taliban’s takeover in 2021, Safi’s ministry was replaced by the ministry of “guidance and preaching.” She stated that despite pledges made during the withdrawal of US and UK troops, there has been a lack of concrete action to address the crisis.

Speaking at the One Young World summit in Belfast, Safi described the international community’s approach as confused. She argued that while conferences, events, and programs are being held, there has been no practical outcome to alleviate the disappointment and suffering of those at risk in Afghanistan.

Safi highlighted that the Taliban’s decrees, which have not been internationally recognized, violate human rights principles. She criticized the constant issuance of directives on matters such as clothing, makeup, and mobility, stating that the situation is deeply disappointing.

Safi emphasized that Afghanistan should not be abandoned but rather be seen as an integral part of the global human community. She called for increased aid efforts and a strategic reevaluation of the international community’s support based on the real needs of the Afghan people.

Notably, nearly 50 percent of Afghans were living under the poverty line before Western forces withdrew from the country, making urgent aid efforts crucial. Safi stressed the need for a focus on girls’ and women’s education, emphasizing that higher and secondary education must be ensured.

Safi concluded by calling for a consolidated report on all initiatives and perspectives related to Afghanistan, covering experiences within the country, the diaspora, and the international community. She believes this collective effort will guide a strategic vision to address the crisis effectively.
