Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement that the leader of the Islamic Emirate, Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada, held a gathering with the provincial governors in Kandahar.
Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada stressed the need to preserve Islamic values, according to the statement.
Mawalawi Hibatullah called for the implementation of Sharia law, saying that the laws which are made by humans are not acceptable and that every problem should be solved by Sharia.
“Over the past 20 years, there have been a lot of anti-Shari and Islam rhetoric and laws which are made by the people is not implementable,” he was quoted in the statement.
Analysts say that the implementation of other laws is important in addition to Sharia.
“The laws should be implemented so as not to be against and in contrast with Sharia, so if it is something like this, that is an Islamic law,” said Ghulam Sakhi Ihsani, university instructor.
A part of the statement said that all rights based on Sharia must be provided to women and also the previous decree of the supreme leader which had six articles must be implemented.
“How is Sharia law implemented while the schools for girls’ students above grade six have remained closed for more than 313 days and women are deprived of their basic rights which is the right to education?” said Marriam Marouf Arveen, a female rights’ activist.
The leader of the Islamic Emirate in an earlier decree said allegations against officials of the Islamic Emirate that lack proof are forbidden.
The statement said that it is the responsibility of all citizens and media organizations to bring this decree into effect.
Meanwhile, Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada, the supreme leader of the Islamic Emirate, attended and spoke at the clerics’ gathering held at the Loya Jirga Hall in Kabul.
The leader entered the tent while Sirajuddin Haqqani, acting minister of interior, was speaking at the session.
Haqqani’s speech was interrupted when the leader entered.
Mawlawi Hebatullah Akhundzada, the Islamic Emirate leader, said the world does not want Afghanistan to be independent, and he will not take orders from the world on how to interact, even if the atom bomb is used on Afghanistan.
Mawlawi Hebatullah Akhundzada spoke at the gathering, saying:
– The war of recent years was a war of belief and Sharia. Killing Afghans was not our intention.
– An Islamic system has been achieved with many sacrifices.
– We thank those who supported our Jihad.
– Putting into practice the slogans we have given is the wish of the people.
