Some officials of the Islamic Emirate reacted to UNAMA’s report regarding the human rights situation in Afghanistan.
The acting Minister of Vice and Virtue accused the US and the international community of interfering in the affairs of Afghanistan.
Talking at a gathering in southeastern Paktia province, Mohammad Khalid Hanafi, the acting Minister of Vice and Virtue, said the international community is pressing them under the pretext of human rights.
"If the international community thinks that if they bring pressure on the Islamic Emirate they will drag them one step back from their stance, I swear that as long as we breath, we will not take even one step back from Sharia law,” he said.
Hanafi also denied the claims in the report regarding violations of human rights in Afghanistan.
“The report published ... by the human rights I can tell you that it is not true from A to Z,” he said.
“After the Islamic Emirate swept into power, the humanitarian situation has improved in every aspect in Afghanistan and the killing of people has been stopped,” said Bilal Karimi, deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate.
Meanwhile, some analysts said the report of the UN is unbiased.
“We may not have complete access to all aspects, but the reports of human rights are usually neutral and the main point is that the UN is the only international partner of the government in Afghanistan and they are trying to find better ways,” said Torek Farhadi, a political analyst.
“It is the right time that an important organization (UN) covered the human rights situation,” said Ghulam Sakhi, a political analyst.
