Junbish-i-Roshanai banned from staging rally in Kabul

Junbish-i-Roshanai banned from staging rally in Kabul

Sep 26, 2016 - 13:21

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Kabul Garrison On Monday warned the Junbish-i-Roshniai movement of harsh action if staged a protest that may cause loss of life and property.

Peaceful gatherings, protests and rallies constituted a legal right of every citizen, but violent demonstrations would not be allowed, a statement from the Kabul Garrison said.

A recent incident showed the enemies of the country were ready to strike everywhere, the statement added. The inimical forces, whose roots were outside of the country, wanted to fuel anarchy and kill innocent people, it alleged.

The capital was a prime target of terrorist groups, the garrison argued, saying the National Security Council had, therefore, decided not to allow the planned protest of Jumbish-i-Roshani.

The garrison warned organisers, including Jafar Mehdawi, Mohammad Ali Akhlaqi, Ahmad Behzad, Rehana Azad, Arif Rahmani, Ghulam Hussain Nasiri, Abdul Rahman Shidani and Zulfiqar Omaid Naji, would be held responsible for any kind of losses,

It made clear the protest organisers would be introduced to the attorney office.  The Junbish-i-Roshanaiis scheduled to stage a protest tomorrow (Tuesday).

At least 84 people were killed and over 300 wounded when twin suicide bombers blew themselves up inside a rally some two months earlier. Daesh or Islamic State (IS) claimed responsibility.

The protestors wanted the Turkmenistan-Uzbekistan-Afghanistaninfo-icon-Pakistaninfo-icon (TUTAP) power project to be executed through central provinces of the country, dominated by the Hazara community.

But the government said the project would be implemented through Salang, the northern part. Government officials have asked Junbish-i-Roshanai leaders to come to the table for talks on the issue.
