The Afghan-Turk Students’ Parents Committee on Saturday submitted its complaint to the Attorney General Office over the “illegal” action of the security forces against the school in Kabul.

The parents of students who were gathered at the Attorney General’s Office, urged investigation into the security forces’ raid on Afghan-Turk Girls school in Kabul. 

“We came here to submit our [complaint] letter, so the institutions which have taken this illegal action, get investigated,” said Yusuf Pashtun, Head of the Afghan-Turk Students’ Parents Committee.

On Tuesday, last week,  four teachers of Afghan-Turk schools, three Turkish and one Afghan national were detained by the security forces when their vehicle en route to school was stopped by the Afghan intelligence operatives.  Later in the evening, the security forces raided an Afghan-Turk female school in Kabul.

“It will be a national treason, If the teachers were not released and were handed over the Turkish government,” said Fazl Ahmad Manawi, a member of the parents’ committee.

However, the Attorney General’s Office is expected to launch its investigations on the issue. “The Attorney General’s Office pledged us to comprehensively probe the case and will take actions base on the rule of law and will discuss the issue with the president,” said Abdul Shukur Dadras.

This comes as it has been said that the Afghan leadership has signed no extradition agreement with Turkish government to hand over the individuals.

Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai, the political deputy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said on Sunday that the development of a country depends on reading, but reading habits in Afghanistan are very low.

Stanikzai made the remarks at a ceremony in Kabul to unveil books printed during the past 11 months.

“In Afghanistan, compared to other countries, people read very little. Maybe some people believe that there were many problems here, there was a war, the economy was weak and people are looking for bread and don’t have time to read, but these problems exist in other countries as well. If there is no war in other countries, there is poverty,” Stanikzai said.

He stated now that security is ensured in the country and there is no feudalism, youths should read under the shadow of the Islamic system, because without reading, success cannot be achieved.

“If youths become interested in reading and books, Allah willing, society will get rid of problems very soon. We Afghans have no equal on the battlefield. We have a lot of progress in this regard, and no one else has this honor. We should try to tell the world that with the takeover of the Islamic Emirate, there is peace and security in Afghanistan. There is no more war; there is no more feudalism; there is no more looting. There is an Islamic and Sharia system,” Stanikzai said.

He has also said that currently many books are imported from other countries, adding that scientific and research institutions and authors of the country should try to write books themselves.
