A delegation of scholars and thinkers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has come to Kabul, with the aim of sharing the concerns of the member countries of the OIC with officials of the Islamic Emirate and religious scholars.
The OIC said on X social media platform that these scholars will meet and discuss various issues including women's education and work from the perspective of Islam with the officials of the current Afghan government and religious scholars in Kabul.
“The delegation's visit comes within the framework of the follow-up of the OIC General Secretariat to the resolutions of the Executive Committee and the Council of Foreign Ministers, which called on the Secretary-General of the OIC to dispatch a delegation of ulemas and religious scholars led by the International Islamic Fiqh Academy and other relevant religious institutions in the Muslim world to engage with Afghanistan on issues of utmost importance, such as tolerance and moderation in Islam, girls' education and women's work,” the OIC said on X.
"The Islamic world has some concerns regarding the education of girls and some other issues, such as the concerns of neighboring countries about the use of Afghan soil against them, which should be shared with the high-ranking officials of the Islamic Emirate,” said Zia Ulhaq Madani, a political analyst.
Meanwhile, these scholars emphasized that the Islamic world wants stability in Afghanistan, at a meeting with Political Deputy Prime Minister Mawlawi Abdul Kabir.
During the meeting Political Deputy Prime Minister once again emphasized the positive interaction of the Islamic Emirate with the world.
"The delegation advised the Islamic Emirate to use the experience of the Islamic world regarding girls attending school and women working in government offices and generally in all fields,” said Mohammad Hassan Haqyar, head of the media directorate of the political deputy of the PM.
Analysts said that religious scholars' visits to the nation are beneficial for resolving current issues and for fostering the world’s interaction with the Islamic Emirate.
"These visits have an impact on our relations with the entire world and present a positive image of Afghanistan to the world that Afghans are interactive people,” said Hamid Karokhai, a political analyst.
Following the establishment of the Islamic Emirate, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation restarted operations in Kabul on March 6, 2022. Including Afghanistan, OIC has 57 members.
