In a meeting with Kabul province authorities, the acting Interior Minister, Sirajuddin Haqqani, said that bringing Afghanistan into "obedience" does not demonstrate the improvement of physical strength but rather the improvement of "spiritual" strength.
He also said that the interim government will not continue without the support of the people.
During the meeting, Haqqani said that silencing the revolutionary people in the 34 provinces of Afghanistan and making them obey is not something that can be done by force.
“If we really surrender to God, the people will obey the government, if we are bad inside but good outside, God will make us scandalous and we will not endure. If we don’t obey God, we will be beaten,” he said.
“There was fighting against the invasion. It was struggles of the Islamic Emirate’s forces and it was Jihad. Now we are in another level of Jihad, which is stability and steadiness of the Islamic government,” said Mohammad Qassim Khalid, governor of Kabul.
Meanwhile, the head of the Kabul department of intelligence, Mohammad Arif, emphasized the need for implementation of the edicts of the Islamic Emirate leaders’ decrees in a bid to pave the ground for a “sharia government.”
“Every decree which is issued by the leaders, including the decree of Amirul Momineen [Islamic Emirate’s leader], we should consider it with respect and bring it into effect,” he said.
On the other hand, the deputy Interior Ministry, Mohammad Nabi Omari, called on the Islamic Emirate’s forces to treat the people with proper behavior.
“Some of the people have complained that when we go to the governor or commander, we were ignored… my brothers we should pay attention to these points,” he said.
This comes as the citizens across the country have repeatedly complained about the mistreatment of the Islamic Emirate’s forces.
