War crimes are identified with violations of the law of war at the time of armed conflict. It is an extensive concept and if any harm is caused to mankind during peacetime, it is regarded as a war crime. Any kind of infringement of human rights falls under war crimes. The suffering of Afghans was ignored by the world for a couple of decades but what is not acceptable is that Afghanistan’s government is doing the same. Afghanistan does not have any substantial law on genocide. War crimes in Afghanistan include acts such as abuse of civilians or prisoners of war. It is important to deal with the problem of genocide and related violence. Hence, war crimes in Afghanistan are violations of international humanitarian laws incurring individual criminal responsibility and must be adequately investigated.
