Afghan Prime Minister addresses nation in first voice message



(Last Updated On: November 28, 2021)

The Prime Minister of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA), Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund, addressed the nation for the first time on Saturday in a half-hour audio message.

“The Islamic Emirate is not the cause of unemployment and the poor economic situation in Afghanistan, all these problems are the legacy of the previous government,” he told the nation.

In the message, Akhund called on the people of Afghanistan to support the government of the Islamic Emirate and stressed that the Islamic Emirate (IE) has fulfilled its promises.

He acknowledged that there were economic problems in the country, but said that the “sustenance of the people” was not promised by the government of the Islamic Emirate, that it was from Allah, and that Allah was testing his servants.

“In the past, people did not have a place to spend the day and night, but now there is an atmosphere where security is everywhere,” he said.

Addressing IE members and forces, Akhund said: “I call on all the people and the Mujahideen to stand side by side in the formation and stability of this Islamic system and work for a better future.

“We work day and night to solve people’s problems beyond our human capacity. We have formed various commissions and committees to coordinate matters, all of which are working,” he said.

“People who enter people’s homes are not Mujahideen, they are armed thieves dressed as Mujahideen and doing evil deeds,” he stressed.

Akhund said: “All governors, commanders and officials are strongly instructed to open your gates to the people, otherwise the gates of Allah’s mercy will be closed to you.”

He rejected the criticism of the structure of the government. He claimed that the government of the Islamic Emirate was “inclusive” and that the rights of all classes were guaranteed.

“The decision to integrate the system must be made by the people,” he said.

In his message he asked, “Did the previous government create an inclusive system in which two departments operated in the same place and each had its own supporters?”

He claimed that “in the current system, any nation and section can see itself.”

Akhund also claimed that “the Islamic Emirate has guaranteed women’s rights.”

“Education is mandatory for both men and women. We hope all women have access to education.”

However, Akhund emphasized that “the Islamic Emirate has given women’s rights, dignity and chastity.”

He also assured neighboring countries that there is no threat to them from the IEA.

“We have already told our neighbors and we are still telling them that we will not harm you,” he said.

He added that we are thinking about rebuilding our country.

“We do not have a policy of interfering in the internal affairs of other countries,” he said.

This is his first message to the nation since the IEA takeover in Afghanistan in August.

UN renews calls for IEA to reopen schools for girls and women



(Last Updated On: March 22, 2023)

The United Nations has renewed its call for Afghanistan’s Taliban to immediately reopen schools to teenage girls, saying the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) has no justification for denying the right to education on any grounds, including religion or tradition.

“The ongoing unlawful denial of girls and young women’s right to education in Afghanistan marks a global nadir in education, impacting an entire gender, a generation, and the future of the country,” a U.N. panel of experts said this week.

There is no indication the Taliban intend to lift the ban on female education as secondary schools across the South Asian nation reopen later this week after winter break, the statement read.

“Instead, it appears that for the second successive school year, teenage girls will be banned from resuming their studies,” the U.N. panel said, adding that Afghanistan is the only country in the world where girls and young women are barred from receiving an education.

Separately, U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, while launching the 2022 Human Rights Report on Monday, renewed Washington’s denunciation of curbs on Afghan women’s access to education and work, VOA reported.

Blinken said the IEA leadership “relentlessly discriminates and represses” Afghan women. He noted the authorities have so far issued 80 decrees that restrict women’s freedom of movement and the right to education and work.

“I’ll say very simply that we deplore the edicts,” Blinken told reporters.

He said the order banning Afghan female employees of nongovernmental organizations from workplaces “imperils” millions of Afghans who depend on humanitarian assistance for survival.

Baradar visits Kamal Khan Dam, stresses need to increase water storage capacity



(Last Updated On: March 22, 2023)

Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, visited Kamal Khan Dam in southern Nimroz province on Tuesday and emphasized the need to increase water storage capacity and cleaning up of the surrounding canals.

Baradar discussed solutions to the water issues faced by the people of Nimroz province, including the timely water supply to agricultural lands, his office said in a statement.

The Deputy PM and the accompanying delegation examined the installation of turbines at the dam and provided guidance to the officials on increasing the capacity of water storage, canal cleaning, and overall effective management.

He acknowledged the national importance of the Kamal Khan Dam and commended those responsible for the initiative.

The visit of the delegation to Kamal Khan Dam took place one day before the World Water Day.

Experts say the Islamic Emirate has great opportunities to manage the country’s waters in such a way that the people of Afghanistan benefit the most.

“On behalf of the private sector, we thank the dignitaries who visited the Kamal Khan dam. It is the responsibility of each of us to protect the national assets of our country in order to become self-sufficient like other countries,” said Mirwais Hajizada, an expert on economic affairs.

According to other experts, the country’s water management can get Afghanistan out of economic problems in a short time, and the government should focus on creating water dams.

“Afghanistan is a country that has a lot of agricultural land and relies mostly on agriculture. Therefore, for the lands that need water, if water management is done, it can make Afghanistan self-sufficient in terms of grains, and it can also become an exporting country,” said Kamaluddin Kakar, an economic expert.
