Addressing his supporters in a routine gathering on Wednesday, ousted Balkh governor and CEO of Jamiat-e-Islami Party, Atta Mohammad Noor lashed out at the international community – in particular the United Nations - for their silence over injustice, corruption and tyranny in Afghanistan.
Noor warned that he will take thousands of his supporters to the streets in protest if the international community and the US don’t speak out about this.
“You should show your determination in this issue either as you came to Afghanistan to fight terrorism, ensure justice and help governance; otherwise as I see it, you are trying to test the anger of the people at once. If that happens, you will regret it,” he said.
Meanwhile, referring to talks between government and Jamiat, Noor said: “My campaign is not for the position of Balkh governor only. The Balkh province is a very easy issue as we can introduce a colleague of ours to the post and we can start big political activities. Changes in Balkh are a dream for those who want to do it for their own interests.”
Wednesday was day 36 since President Ashraf Ghani ousted Noor from his position as governor of Balkh.
