Shia religious scholars called on the Islamic Emirate to ensure social and public justice via negotiations.
The scholars made remarks at a gathering in western Kabul on Monday.
“Social justice should be ensured on several sides prior to anything else, in both the economic and political arena,” said Mohammad Juma Mubligh, a scholar.
“Only talks, engagements, and understandings are the solutions. The women will also be ensured of their rights. The Shia community of Afghanistan will also feel everywhere in the country that it is provided with social justice. That is when the Islamic Emirate will endure,” said Mohammad Raheem Wafayi, a scholar.
Speaking at the gathering, Jafar Mahdawi, the leader of Hezb-e-Milat and a former member of the lower house of the parliament, said the people will stand against those who seek war and bloodshed in the country. However, Mahdawi didn’t name any certain group or individual.
“Any movement aiming for war and bloodshed in Afghanistan will not be welcomed by the people of Afghanistan, who will stand against it. It (the nation) will not allow Afghanistan to go back to the misery and bloodshed of decades ago,” he said.
He accused the former government officials of plundering Afghanistan’s national property, saying that the Islamic Emirate is capable of holding these officials accountable through the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol). Madawi also criticized individuals who don’t respect the general amnesty of the Islamic Emirate, saying those who violate the amnesty should be held accountable.
