Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement that the leader of the Islamic Emirate, Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada, held a gathering with the provincial governors in Kandahar.
Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada stressed the need to preserve Islamic values, according to the statement.
Mawalawi Hibatullah called for the implementation of Sharia law, saying that the laws which are made by humans are not acceptable and that every problem should be solved by Sharia.
“Over the past 20 years, there have been a lot of anti-Shari and Islam rhetoric and laws which are made by the people is not implementable,” he was quoted in the statement.
Analysts say that the implementation of other laws is important in addition to Sharia.
“The laws should be implemented so as not to be against and in contrast with Sharia, so if it is something like this, that is an Islamic law,” said Ghulam Sakhi Ihsani, university instructor.
A part of the statement said that all rights based on Sharia must be provided to women and also the previous decree of the supreme leader which had six articles must be implemented.
“How is Sharia law implemented while the schools for girls' students above grade six have remained closed for more than 313 days and women are deprived of their basic rights which is the right to education?” said Marriam Marouf Arveen, a female rights’ activist.
The leader of the Islamic Emirate in an earlier decree said allegations against officials of the Islamic Emirate that lack proof are forbidden.
The statement said that it is the responsibility of all citizens and media organizations to bring this decree into effect.
