Residents in the southern province of Kandahar expressed frustration, saying that some armed individuals claiming to be members of the Islamic Emirate forces are disturbing the people.
They called on officials to hold the perpetrators accountable.
“We praise their good actions and criticize their bad actions. We- the people- have the right to make peaceful criticism. Those among the forces of the Islamic Emirate who oppress the public should be punished. They should bring strict reform to their forces,” said Sayed Ahmad Zahid, a resident.
“The people who are affiliated with the Islamic Emirate forces and misuse their authority should be kicked out,” said Mohammad Amin, a resident.
The reforming commission of the Islamic Emirate said that those who conduct courts for desertion and oppress the people would be punished.
“The reform commission was established to prevent those who bother our people. We are given the authority by the leadership to dismiss those Islamic Emirate forces, who violate the policy of the Islamic Emirate and who disturb the people,” said Mufti Latifullah Hakimi, head of the commission.
Over 650 members of the Islamic Emirate forces have been dismissed on charges of various crimes, according to the commission.
