The acting Minister of Justice, Abdul Hakim Sharai, said that the constitution of the previous government of Afghanistan is not based on Islamic Sharia, and, therefore, efforts are underway to create a new constitution.
Speaking at event of the "government's accountability program," Abdul Hakim Sharai said that no article of the constitution of the previous government was in accordance with the Sharia laws.
"In the previous constitution, no one can cite an article cited in accordance with the book of Allah, Sunnah or Hanafi jurisprudence,” he said.
The Islamic Emirate official reiterated that he will not let any person or group run political parties in the nation.
"Our experiences have shown that these political parties are the only cause for the nation's current state of devastation,” Sharai noted.
