New Taliban govt discloses what its policy on Sharia law will be
Mullah Mohammad Hasan Akhund led Taliban new ‘caretaker’ government in Afghanistan which has key roles for designated global terrorists, including the dreaded Haqqani Network issued a policy statement to assure the Afghans that “no one should be worried about the future. Our first attempt and priority is to solve all the problems through legitimate and reasonable means”.
Recalling the previous Taliban regime that has brought back fears among the Afghans, the new government has said, “Our previous twenty years of struggle had two major goals. Firstly to end foreign occupation and aggression and to liberate the country, and secondly to establish a complete, independent stable and central Islamic system in the country.”
“Based on this principle, in the future, all matters of governance and life in Afghanistan will be regulated by laws of the Holy Sharia,” said the policy statement attributed to Taliban Supreme Leader Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada.
Mullah Hasan, the Chief of the Taliban powerful decision-making body ‘Rehbari Shura’, will be the acting Prime Minister while Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar will be his deputy in the “new Islamic government”, Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said at a news conference in Kabul.
The announcement of key figures in the caretaker government comes weeks after the Taliban seized control of war-torn Afghanistan, ousting the previous elected leadership of President Ashraf Ghani.
The Taliban have also insisted that they believe the Afghans will continue supporting the Taliban and “strengthen the system”.
The Taliban have further added, “All talented and professional people, scholars, professors, doctors, scientists, engineers and educated cadres, national businessmen and investors should be fully assured that the Islamic Emirate will value them. Our country desperately needs their talents, guidance and work.”
“Similarly, people should not leave the country. The Islamic Emirate has no problem with anyone.
The Taliban had promised an “inclusive” government that represents Afghanistan’s complex ethnic makeup, but there is no Hazara member in the Cabinet.
