What is next in Afghanistan ? Yes, exactly that’s the question the entire world is talking about. When thousands of Afghan people are migrating leaving their memories behind for a better life, they are also unsure about their future. Even the nation is also unsure about its existence.
Aghanistan is always looked upon as a friendly neighbour for many nations whereas the nation itself struggles with internal issues. The world thinks in a little different way when it comes to Afghanistan. Today Aghanistan is in a state of emergency. What is right, what is wrong is a question to everybody who is witnessing the massacre.
But the most important question is now , what could be done to make it suffer less. Who knows the answer? Who is accountable for the loss ?
Blood sheds, explosions, fires cannot be a solution to anything. United Nations also thinks in the same way.
With Afghanistan at a critical juncture, a united Security Council must seize the moment to re-energize peace talks and prevent the crisis from spilling over national borders, according to Deborah Lyons, Special Representative of the Secretary-General and Head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA).
She encouraged the Council to publish a clear statement declaring that attacks on cities must cease immediately. Members of the international community should insist on a general ceasefire and the commencement of dialogue with the Taliban Political Commission, while reaffirming that the international community will not recognise a government imposed by force.
She urged the Council to put aside its differences and send a strong message that hostilities must end and parties must dialogue in the coming weeks. She warned that, there might be nothing left to win.
She urged the Security Council, the United Nations, and international human rights mechanisms to act more quickly, highlighting the consequences for Afghanistan, the region, and the globe if the bloodshed continues.Using all of the measures at its disposal, the Council can still prevent a disaster.
Members of the Council denounced recent acts of violence and asked for improved humanitarian access and real results at upcoming peace talks.
Several people expressed deep worries about human rights violations, particularly against women and children, and many demanded that they be fully involved in the peace discussions.
Others, while stating that there is no military solution to the war, claimed that a government-imposed by force would be ineffective.
But does it matter? Let’s assume for a moment that Afghanistan has overcome the situation and peace prevails everywhere. It is even beautiful to assume like this. But what happens to them who lost their near ones, what happens to them whose future is yet to be decided, waiting in the immigration camp. It reminds the song of Michael Jackson – Heal the World. The lyrics says, ‘Heal the world, Make it a better place,For you and for me, and the entire human race, There are people dying, If you care enough for the living, Make a better place for you and for me.”
We pray that Afghanistan heals. We pray that the human race heals.
