KABUL (BNA): Deputy Prime Minister for Administrative Affairs Mawlavi Abdul Salam Hanafi says organizations that criticize Islamic Emirate for installing security cameras in Kabul city themselves involved in violations of human rights.
According to a statement released by Prime Minister’s Office, Mawlavi Abdul Salam Hanafi made these statements during the closing ceremony of the accountability program of the government to the nation in Kabul.
Mr. Hanafi referred to the use of MOAB bomb, the expansion of poppy cultivation in the country, the bombing of schools and farms, the insult to religion and the martyrdom of innocent people by foreign invaders in Afghanistan which he considered serious violation of human rights.
Afghanistan wants to install security cameras in public places and mosques in Kabul city to ensure security, the rule of law, and to prevent destructive activities of malicious individuals, he said.
He said that in the umbrella of the Islamic government, the rights of all people are protected as well as the dignity, property and places of worship of non-Muslims are also safe.
Islamic Emirate is committed to freedom of expression, if this freedom is within the framework of Islamic principles and values and is not against national interests, as well as the rights and privacy of individuals, he emphasized.
Deputy Prime Minister has stated that after the return of the Islamic Emirate to the country, the most important issue was declaration of a general amnesty by the leadership of this government, based on which no one has the right to take revenge on personal matters, and if something happens somewhere, the Islamic Emirate considers it a criminal act and the perpetrator is introduced to the courts.
Mawlavi Abdul Salam Hanafi added that, after the rule of the Islamic Emirate, the cultivation, trade and trafficking of drugs were banned, drug addicts were collected for treatment, and development projects were launched.
For ensuring permanent stability and security, the elimination of drugs and the prevention of migration of young people due to economic problems, major projects such as TAPI, CASA and others need to be implemented, he said.
He called on the countries involved in the 20-year war not to hinder the implementation of economic projects.
