Civilian killings against Islam, says Farahi
KABUL (): The Independent Directorate of Local Governance (IDLG) head on Friday blamed anti-state elements for attacking unarmed civilians, saying such assaults were against the teachings of Islam.
Abdul Khaliq Farahi condemned in the strongest words the killing of civilians in Takhar, Baghlan, Nimroz and Ghor provinces. He conveyed his condolences to the bereaved families.
Tens of civilians were killed and wounded in various incidents during the past 48 hours across the country.
IDLG Spokesman Tawab Ghorzang said Farahi had expressed grave concern over the surge in violence against common people. The terrorists wanted to continue their anti-state activities, Farahi was quoted as saying.
In his message, the IDLG chief said: “Terrorists and the enemies of the country don’t want the Afghans to live a peaceful life. Our enemy employs all tactics to create chaos. They continue with their killing spree even in the holy month of Ramadan.”
