The leader of the Islamic Emirate, Mawlawi Hebatullah Akhundzada, has ordered judges to fully implement Islamic law on criminals.
The Islamic Emirate's spokesperson said on his Twitter page that Mawlawi Hebatullah Akhundzada had ordered the judges to carefully investigate the cases of kidnappers, thieves, and seditionists.
"Mawlawi Hebatullah in meeting with the judges, told them to investigate the cases of thieves, kidnappers and seditionists properly. Those cases that have reached all the requirements of the Sharia retribution, you (judges) are obliged to implement retribution,” said Enayatullah, deputy spokesman of the Supreme Court.
Meanwhile, Yousef Ahmadi, the PM's spokesperson, told TOLOnews that the order of the leader of the Islamic Emirate will be implemented throughout the country.
"Those who are involved in murder, kidnapping and theft must be punished for their actions,” Ahmadi said.
However, some political experts said that it will be difficult to implement all aspects of Islamic law in the current situation.
"The Islamic Emirate should make its decision on this matter, whether it stresses the internal dimension or on the foreign dimension, it should move accordingly,” said Janat Fahim Chakari, a political expert.
"The Islamic system is complete when all of its aspects are observed; if all aspects are not implemented, the system is not called an Islamic system. In my opinion, it is a good thing that all aspects should be implemented,” said Sayed Akbar Agha, another political expert.
But some Kabul citizens ask that criminals be punished fairly.
"Justice must be done, and cases must be handled by having documents, proof, in all cases,” said Nazir Ahmadzai, a resident of Kabul.
“Each order has certain principles and regulations. This kind of work shouldn't be done without guidelines and principles,” said, another resident of Kabul.
This is the first time that the leader of the Islamic Emirate has issued a formal order to fully implement all aspect of Islamic law throughout the country since the Islamic Emirate came to power.
