The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan
Stage 9: Extermination
BBC Afghan Service
After the US started withdrawing its military troops from the war-torn country, Afghanistan has witnessed an upsurge in violent attacks by the Taliban and Islamic State-Khorasan. Both extremist groups target religious and ethnic minorities such as the Hazaras, women, healthcare workers and journalists. Taliban's return to power will lead to continued extermination of religious minorities and all those who go against the Taliban's religious fundamentalism. It is also likely the Taliban will seek to exterminate gay people, having already executed men by "wall-toppling" for homosexuality in the past.
