“When the Taliban come back to power, there is no doubt that many [minorities] will leave Afghanistan,” Sydney-based Hazara Abdul Alizada told SBS News.

“Many people will be massacred and killed by the Taliban because, unfortunately, the Taliban didn’t change at all.”  Mr. Alizada said his relatives had been holding out hope the troop withdrawals would not occur so soon.

“They were concerned about their future in Afghanistan. They will [now] be in danger in AfghanistanAustralia needs to do something for those people who supported them.”
