The ministerial cabinet of the Islamic Emirate vowed to bring reforms to its military forces and to eliminate members who misuse their authority and abuse the people.
A statement issued by the ministerial cabinet did not provide further details regarding the new cabinet decision, but the Ministry of Interior said that the move is aiming to eliminate unqualified and opportunistic people who misuse the Emirate’s name and whose actions are in contrast with the Emirate’s regulations.
“The Islamic Emirate established an independent commission to monitor in its forces,” said Sayed Khosti, a spokesman for the Ministry of Interior. “The commission is comprised of (officials) from the Ministry of Defense, Interior Ministry and the intelligence agency. The duty of the commission is to recognize and fire those force members who have a bad record.”
Meanwhile, citizens and activists praised the cabinet’s decision to monitor its forces.
“This is a good step, and I hope this comes into effect,” said a civil rights activist Fardin Fedayi. “The unqualified, opportunistic and bad people who misuse the address of Islamic Emirate must be immediately removed and brought to justice.”
A Kabul resident, Ahmad Omar, said, “To implement this process, the first thing needed is the uniform to be specified for each group and department.”
Political experts say the cabinet made the decision after some individuals affiliated with the Islamic Emirate mistreated the people.
Political analyst Amanullah Hotaki said, “This act to punish these (bad people) and dismiss them from the government is good.”
“The biggest challenge for the Taliban is to build trust between itself and the people,” said Aziz Rafie, a political analyst. “On the other hand, unfortunately, poverty has surged and can pave the way for any type of fraud.”
Earlier there have been reports that individuals allegedly related to the Islamic Emirate forces have disturbed, beaten and otherwise caused problems for the people; however, the Emirate stressed that no one is allowed to illegally act toward the people.
