When White House Resident Joe Biden, General Mark Milley, Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin abandoned $83,000,000+ worth of U.S. aircraft, vehicles and weapons during their scandalous military troop pullout from Afghanistan in August, they left many innocent people in severe danger.
Today Americans and Afghan Christians are living in extreme peril as the Taliban has declared they will carry out executions and other brutal punishments, including amputations, under Islamic Sharia law as part of their rule in Afghanistan.
When the Taliban took control of much of Afghanistan following the exit of U.S. troops, many ministries working with the country’s underground church worked tirelessly to evacuate at-risk Christians, William Stark, ICC’s regional manager for South Asia, told The Christian Post earlier this month.
“Christians are now in hiding because of active threats against their community,” Stark said.
“Cutting off of hands is very necessary for security,” Mullah Nooruddin Turabi, a member of the Taliban’s interim government and chief enforcer of the group’s strict interpretation of Sharia law, told The Associated Press.
“Everyone criticized us for the punishments in the stadium, but we have never said anything about their laws and their punishments,” Tarabi continued. “No one will tell us what our laws should be. We will follow Islam and we will make our laws on the Quran.”
Turabi is now under U.N. sanctions but said the new government is considering performing the killings and amputations in public.
Turabi’s public statements has many Afghan Christians preparing for persecution, the U.S.-based persecution watchdog International Christian Concern (ICC) reported.
ICC explained that the Taliban’s strict interpretation of Sharia is a considerable threat to Afghan Christians due to their conversions from Islam to Christianity.
“As apostates, Afghan Christians will be subject to Sharia’s deadliest consequences, including execution,” ICC said.
Stark estimates there are between 8,000 and 12,000 Christians who converted from Islam and remain largely in hiding due to severe persecution.
Stark included these accounts like these:
🔹Islamic extremist are threatening to kidnap Christians daughters and marry them off to members of the Taliban.
🔹Christians are receiving letters from the Taliban saying their houses belong to them.
🔹Christians are no longer permitted to gather.
“Even within the networks that we have, a number of people have changed their phone numbers because it’s simply not safe anymore,” Stark said. “Their work to lie low in the country makes it hard for someone on the outside to stay in contact.”
“It’s going to take a diplomatic process by the U.S., the U.K. and other countries that are going to allow them to leave that country,” Stark suggests. “Essentially, what they need is some sort of special status that would allow them to travel outside of Afghanistan.”
The Taliban have banned all demonstrations and have violently cracked down on protests, including beating women, and killed demonstrators.
“We call on the Taliban to immediately cease the use of force towards, and the arbitrary detention of, those exercising their right to peaceful assembly and the journalists covering the protests,” a spokeswoman for the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights previously said in a press statement.
