These events are really worrying and sad, Afghanistan is among the countries in which the Human Rights are disregarded to a very large extent. For misoccurence of the forementioned unpleasant events we have to take actions rather than staying silent and not striving for the rights of human beings which is wrong according to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
