A council of clerics for Badakhshan, Ghazni and Nangarhar provinces have been formed based on decrees of the Islamic Emirate’s supreme leader, Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada.
The Islamic Emirate said that clerics are obliged to provide consultation to the officials of the provinces based on Sharia law.
The decrees said that the local officials are obliged to act after consultation with the religious clerics.
“The council's religious clerics come from every province. There are also elders from every province ... The council is formed to be active as a mediator between the voice of the people and government,” said Zabiullah Mujahid, Islamic Emirate’s Spokesman.
Political analysts said that the formation of the councils is important to address the problems of the people in the country.
“The formation of the council of the ulema on a provincial level is a positive step but it is not a solution to all internal problems of the people of Afghanistan ... ,” said Bilal Fatimi, a political analyst.
“This will completely eliminate the distance between the government and nation. The rulers and officials will become close to the nation,” said Mohammad Bashar, a political analyst.
According to the officials of the Islamic Emirate, the councils of the religious clerics have been formed in Ghazni, Nangarhar, Badakhshan, Kabul, Baghlan, Khost, Kapisa, Paktia, Paktika, Zabul, Kandahar, Helmand, Nimroz, Farah, Faryab, Urozgan, Kunar, Jawzjan and Kunduz province.
The councils for the rest of the provinces will also be formed.
