Taliban supreme leader vows to enforce Islamic law in Afghanistan

New Delhi: Taliban supreme leader Hibatullah Akhundzada has vowed to enforce Islamic law in Afghanistan and will remove “anything against Sharia or the interests of the people”.

In an audio message to mark Eid-al-Adha recorded outside a Kandahar mosque, Akhundzada said: “I have asked the procedures and policies of all ministries made during the governments of Ashraf Ghani and (Hamid) Karzai or during the past 20 years, now put under the supervision of the clerics, if there was anything against Sharia or the interests of the people, it will be removed and we will bring a pure Islamic system.”

The Taliban supreme leader said that security is ensured and the way for the enforcement of Sharia is paved, TOLO News reported. He called on the citizens to support the current system in the country.

Akhundzada’s remarks come as Prime Minister Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund called on Afghans living abroad to renounce their opposition to the current Taliban-led government and take advantage of the general amnesty announced by the regime.
