The leader of the Islamic Emirate, Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada, met with the officials of the department of strategy and intelligence of the Defense Ministry, and commanders of the corps.
In a statement released by the Islamic Emirate’s Spokesman, Zabiullah Mujahid, Mawlawi Hibatullah Akhundzada instructed that innocent people should not be detained and investigated.
The deputy spokesman for the Islamic Emirate, Bilal Karimi, said that in the meeting the need to exclude inappropriate individuals from the command of the Islamic Emirate was stressed.
“In accordance with the Islamic regulation, they (detainees) should not be harassed and they should be treated based on Islamic rules and Sharia,” he said.
The Islamic Emirate leader ordered the officials to treat detainees based on Sharia law and to avoid illegal torture.
“The officials have been provided with recommendations to form their forces with honest and committed people to serve the country and their religion and pave the way for development of the country,” Karimi said.
Sayed Bilal Ahmad Fatimi, a political analyst, said that the international and Islamic laws in this regard match each other.
“This is similar to the Islamic sharia as well as international laws--the Islamic law in this regard matches international regulation,” he said.
The Islamic Emirate’s leader said that intelligence’s role is important for the current government and the elimination of corruption.
