Islamic emirate leader discusses education and women’s rights with clerics

Mawlawi Hebatullah Akhundzada, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Emirate, met with some Kabul clerics in Kandahar to discuss education and women’s rights in the context of Islamic law.

Back in Kabul, some religious scholars said the leader of the Islamic Emirate had given them orders on a number of crucial issues, including respecting women’s rights under Sharia, updating the program of schools and madrassas (religious schools) and solving the problems of the people of Kabul.

“The Supreme Leader of the Islamic Emirate gave a number of instructions to the participants in the meeting, all of whom are from Kabul. One of the instructions is that all women’s rights which are given by Islam must be respected. , not the rights that the Westerners say,” said Abdul Hamed Hamasi, a member of the Islamic Emirate.

“The supreme leader of the Islamic Emirate asked them (the clerics) to convey to him the wishes of the people of Kabul, as well as his words to the people,” said a participant in the meeting.

Clerics have called on the international community to award the leader of the Islamic Emirate the Nobel Prize for ending the 40-year-old war in Afghanistan.

“We call on the international community to award the Nobel Prize to Mawlawi Hebatullah because he ended decades of war in which up to three hundred people in the country were killed every day, and he prevented that” , said Abdul Hamed Hamasi, a member of the Islamic Emirate.

Neda Mohammad Nadim, the governor of Kabul province, said the leader ordered him to deal with the legal issues of Kabul residents.

“The meeting of religious clerics in Kabul continued for three to four hours and important issues were discussed.

The leader of the Islamic Emirate has given several orders to solve the problems of the people of Kabul,” he said.

Meanwhile, Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement that Islamic Emirate leader Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada had arranged a meeting with provincial governors in Kandahar.

Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada stressed the need to preserve Islamic values, the statement said.

Mawalawi Hibatullah called for the implementation of Sharia, saying laws made by humans are not acceptable and every problem should be solved by Sharia.

“Over the past 20 years, there has been a lot of anti-Shari and Islamic rhetoric and laws that are made by the people are not enforceable,” the statement was quoted as saying.

Analysts say the implementation of other laws is important in addition to Sharia.

“Laws must be implemented in a way that they are not contrary and contrary to Sharia, so if it is anything like that, it is Islamic law,” said university professor Ghulam Sakhi Ihsani.

Part of the declaration says that all sharia-based rights must be granted to women and that the previous decree of the Supreme Leader which had six articles must be implemented.

“How is Sharia being implemented when schools for girls beyond sixth grade have remained closed for more than 313 days and women are deprived of their basic rights, namely the right to education ? said Marriam Marouf Arveen, a women’s rights activist.

The head of the Islamic emirate, in an earlier decree, said that allegations against officials in the Islamic emirate who lack evidence are prohibited. The statement says it is the responsibility of all citizens and media organizations to bring this decree into effect.—Tolonews
