FAHIM • 18 May 2023


With due respect.

Thanks a lot for your support.

I had participated in a protest in Kabul in front of Aryana Television Network on date 14 August 2022 alongside women for their rights as Taliban banned Education for them, during protest Taliban 

opened gun fires on us and some of Taliban broken our mobiles.

Here is the link which shared by BBC News: 

I have conducted a protest for the LGBT situation under Taliban regime with my partner Fraidon Saeed and other LGBTQ+ friends in the heart of Kabul on 1 February, 2023:

After that we flew to Iran as we had many threatening phone calls calling for our dead. Beside these things I have been raped by Taliban before on 3 may 2022 by name of Mawlawi Wali. Due to this, we could not stay anymore in Afghanistan. If we continue to stay in Iran or be forced to return in Afghanistan, we face an imminent death. 

we don’t feel safe in Iran, as it’s Islamic country and it has high risk for LGBTQ+. 

My partner, Saeed is suffered from the torture under Taliban and he faces threats for being both gay and atheist. Even Taliban came to their house in Mazar-e- Sharif on 23 August 2022 and they were looking for him. 

And weeks days ago I was a Moderator and we raised LGBT voice in a tweeter space

It was a program which was directed by AISS (Afghanistan Institute of Strategic Studies)

Here are the links :

Last year I received a letter from Taliban for being LGBTQ.

Translating for the letter which attached in email :

(Military Affairs Commission sent letter to Kabul Command Security, and they said that we instruct you that Fahim is the son of Muhammad It is an illegal act . He should be arrested and brought to the Shariah court).

Warm Regards,

I'm very sorry to hear about the difficulties and dangers you have faced under the Taliban regime. It takes great courage to stand up for human rights and advocate for marginalized communities, such as the LGBTQ+ community, in such challenging circumstances. It is understandable that you no longer feel safe in Afghanistan or Iran due to the risks you face as LGBTQ+ individuals.
I highly recommend seeking immediate assistance from organizations that specialize in providing support and protection for individuals facing persecution based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.
The NGO, Afghan LGBT, is dedicated to advocating for the rights and protection of the LGBTQ+ community in Afghanistan and providing assistance to individuals facing persecution. I'll send you a direct message regarding this.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) supports Afghans in- and outside of Afghanistan as well.
Since the German admission program is paused, on the website of UNHCR, you can find other relocation programs from other countries:
Please reach out to the UNHCR office in your current location or any local LGBTQ+ support organizations to seek their guidance and support. They can provide you with more information on available options for seeking asylum or relocation to a safer country.
Remember, your safety and well-being are of utmost importance. It is crucial to rely on professional organizations that can provide the necessary assistance and expertise in navigating these challenging circumstances.
Please take care and I will get back to you as soon as there will be an update or more information. You can also always check our website about Afghanistan, which is constantly getting updated as soon as there are news.
Please feel free to reach out to us again.
