Acting Defense Minister Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob Mujahid at an Independence Day event said that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is not dependent on anyone militarily, politically and economically, although “some countries want us to accept their demands for various reasons.”

According to Minister Mujahid, any demand that goes against religion or national interests is not acceptable.

“We do not accept any orders or wishes against the national beliefs and interests,” Minister Mujahid said.

While talking at the ceremony marked for the 103rd independence day of Afghanistan, Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob Mujahid added that Kabul is honoring this day as the country is “truly free and independent.”

“We are celebrating the 103rd anniversary of Independence Day, when Afghanistan is truly free and independent,” Mujahid said.

A special event to celebrate Independence Day was held in Kabul along with the Ministry of Defense gathering.

“In Afghanistan, we prevent anyone from interfering with Islam, our territory, our privacy, or our customs, traditions, or culture. Alhamdulillah, we have never dealt with anyone throughout history, and we never will let anyone,” said Khalil Rahman Haqqani, acting Minister of Immigration.

“Independence will be maintained only if Muslims think about unity, intimacy, and brotherhood more than before,” said Hayatullah Zafar, Islamic Clerics.

The attendees of the gathering stated that the current system is Islamic, and they made a commitment to uphold all the values of the past century. —Tolonews
