Taliban to return of private land to Hindu, Sikh minorities in Afghanistan, says report


In a further effort to engage with India, the Taliban authorities in Afghanistan are undertaking initiatives to return private land to Hindu and Sikh minorities.

As reported by Time of India, these properties are being reclaimed from warlords associated with the previous Western-backed regime.

It is to be noted that this initiative represents an important stride in addressing the injustices experienced by religious minorities in Afghanistan, who have endured displacement and marginalization for an extended period, according to a Taliban official.

Indian officials view this development as a positive gesture towards India. A notable development is the return of Narender Singh Khalsa, a Member of Parliament representing the Hindu and Sikh communities, who recently came back to Afghanistan from Canada, TOI reported.
