Religious minorities persecuted in Afghanistan amid war

Many belonging to religious minorities are leaving the country but not everyone can afford it.

    The war in Afghanistan is forcing people from religious minorities to leave the country.

    But not everyone can afford to escape persecution and seek a new life abroad.

    The Afghan government has said that protecting minorities and religious freedoms are part of its duties defined by the Constitution of Afghanistan. However, with the government occupied fighting the country's war, attacks on minority groups have increased.
