Dear Mr. President Karzai,
I am an Italian pacifist and I'm very interested of the rebuilding
process in Afghanistan. My interest isn't in business neither of war or
other kind. My interest is on the peace, and the human rights in
Afghanistan. About this concern I wish to put your attention on the
problem of women discrimination in Afghanistan.
I give an example with the position of Malalai Joya, a member of Afghani
Parliament which comprises mostly warlords and fundamentalists who are
directly or indirectly involved in the gross violations of human rights
in Afghanistan. They currently dominate new parliament using their guns,
power, money and intimidation.
Besieged by human rights violators and dark-minded elements in the
parliament, Joya is an outspoken, popular and determined representative
of people; she is there to be the voice of her voiceless and oppressed
people and has always bravely revealed the truth and exposed the
criminal nature of the fundamentalists.
There are vicious efforts going on to silence this clamorous voice of
our people forever. In her own words: They will kill me but they will
not kill my voice, because it will be the voice of all Afghan women. You
can cut the flower, but you cannot stop the coming of spring.
In the past few weeks she has death threats via phone calls and in a
number of cases directly. Her life is in great danger – meanwhile the
Afghan government is not taking any steps to ensure her security.
I ask you to keep the steps to ensure her security and to stop the
gender discrimination in your State.
Thank you very much,
Ettore Lomaglio Silvestri
