The Islamic Emirate says that it is going to hold a nationwide meeting of scholars in the near future based on Islamic values to benefit from governance process in the country.
Bilal Karimi, the deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate, says that religious scholars will discuss various issues at the meeting, including improving governance.
“It is under consideration, that a gathering- with the participation of the prominent Islamic scholars- will be held to assess the issues which have religious aspects in government affairs,” he said.
Kabul has not yet announced the exact number of participants or the date.
Political analysts said such consultative meetings will highlight the government's shortcomings.
“The meeting of the Council of the Ulema at this time has two benefits for the Islamic Emirate: first, it gains national legitimacy, and second, religious scholars and scientists have a positive impact on choosing how the system works," said Fahim Chakari, university lecturer.
The education and work of women is likely to be a major issue at the scholars’ meeting, because the Islamic Emirate has announced that it will decide about the education and work of women within the framework of Islamic regulations.
