Hizbut Tahrir has not yet committed violence: Mohammad Khan
Mohammad Khan said this on Monday during a Cabinet meeting, according to a statement from the CEO office.
Khan said though the group was not legal in Afghanistan, the possibility of its joining a violent group existed.
But second deputy CEO Mohammad Mohaqqeq called the group as extremist saying the outfit practically opposed the Constitution of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
Previously CEO Abdullah Abdullah had called Hizbut Tahrir as a civilian branch of terrorist organizations. He had said the group had infiltrated the country’s academic institutes and was radicalizing the Afghan youth.
