Afghan Refugees

The Uncertain Future Of Afghan Refugees is around the corner after Taliban Takeover in 2021. The takeover of the Taliban faction and withdrawal of US military forces have left Afghan’s vulnerable. Another issue that needs some serious attention is Afghan refugees. Millions of people have become homeless due to the chaotic situation and instability in the country, waiting on borders of the neighboring countries to pass through.

However, the Taliban do not want the people of Afghan to leave their country or settle in other countries. They have blocked the exit points of the country which are connected with neighboring countries. Only people with the proper travel documents or traders are allowed to pass through.

The question now is that where will these refugees from Afghanistan settle?

Europe had already started to fear the refugee crisis, Turkey, on one hand, denied straightaway to accept the Afghan refugees, and Pakistan on other hand already countless refugees settled there.

As per the reports, there are about a 3.5million people who are waiting at the borders (stopped by the Taliban).

Facts and figures of Afghan refugees

Last year, the number of Afghan refugees and asylum seekers in neighboring Pakistan and Iran was the largest.

According to UNHCR data, about 1.5 million people fled to Pakistan in 2020, while 780,000 people sought refuge in Iran.

Afghans have also had to experience a severe drought and food shortages across the country this year. According to a UN World Food Programme report released in June, 14 million people, or more than a third of the population, are hungry.

Even before the Taliban takeover about 550,000 people had already been forced to flew out of the country due to the fighting and chaos, as per the UNHCR reports.

Since 14 August, the US and its allies have flown more than 30,000 individuals out of Kabul, though it’s unclear how many were Afghan nationals.

Latest reports suggest

There are currently 3.5 million Afghans internally displaced within the country.

Thousands of Afghans are alleged to have fled into Pakistan shortly after the Taliban seized control of Kabul, while 1,500 Afghans are estimated to have gone into Uzbekistan and are camped near the border.

Troubled by the immigration crisis triggered by the Syrian war in 2015, European leaders are eager to prevent another large-scale influx of refugees and migrants into Afghanistan.

 In addition to those who assisted Western troops in the two-year war in Afghanistan, the message to Afghans considering fleeing to Europe is: If you must go, go to a neighboring country, but don’t come here.

Fear of Terrorism

Amid these chaotic situations, the countries denying accepting the Afghan refugees have clearly stated that they fear terrorism. They fear that under the tag of refugees these people might be the Afghan militants. Activities that the Taliban faction has carried over the years have made the countries think twice or thrice before taking any decision regarding Afghanistan or Afghan’s.

Even the countries which are accepting the Afghan’s will have the proper plans; they also fear the terrorism and the instability, chaos which Afghan militants could spread on their soil.

The Statement of the US that they will accept only those, who have worked with their government, has made the other countries think that if the USA is not accepting, then why should they?
