The leadership of Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) released almost 285 detainees from the central prison of Kandahar province on Friday, based on the order of the IEA supreme leader Mullah Hibatullah Akhundzada. These prisoners had been arrested on charges of criminal offenses and drug addiction.

According to the officials of this prison, drug addicts have received regular treatment so that they don’t turn to drugs anymore.

“According to the decision of court, these prisoners are released; they are forgiven and the addicts have received treatment and they can go home safely,” said Sayed Akhtar Mohammad Agha Hussaini, head of Kandahar’s central prison.

It is said that from the total detainees, 140 are drug addicts who had received treatment and they are no longer sick.  

The released addicts said they could now serve their families and the community.

“Now, we should try not to return to addiction again because it doesn’t have benefit,” said Nisar Ahmad, a recovered addict.

A few days ago, the IEA released about 350 prisoners from Kandahar prison on the occasion of Eid-ul-Adha.

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.
