Kolkata: With the insurgent group Taliban reaping massive gains capturing more than 60 per cent of the Afghan territories, several world powers have stepped up their mission to rescue stranded nationals and even helpless people out of the war-torn nation.

Among them, Canada has woken up to the imminent danger and decided to resettle Hindus and Sikhs stuck in the embattled region. According to news agency ANI, Canada has signed an MOU with Manmeet Singh Bhullar Foundation to resettle a group of vulnerable Afghan Sikh and Hindu families out of Afghanistan.

“Over next several months, we’ll expand this programme to resettle several hundred remaining Sikhs and Hindus,” said Canadian Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan. “Canada will build on its earlier special immigration programme to welcome over 20,000 vulnerable Afghan refugees. Our efforts will focus on those who are particularly vulnerable, including women leaders,” added Marco Mendicino, Canadian Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, Canada.

And he elaborated, “Canada is expeditiously carrying out special resettlement operations to evacuate Afghan nationals who provided critical support to the Canadian mission. Many more Afghan lives are now under increasing threat & many have already fled.”

But mere evacuation may not suffice, it is also imperative to challenge the Taliban advance by military power now that the doors to all possibilities of an amicable solution look shut.
