Ulama stressed the need for peace and stability in Afghanistaninfo-icon, saying, the teaching of Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) directed the humanity to resolve issues through peaceful ways.

They also condemned the brutal killing of Farkhunda in Kabul and lauded the position of Presidential Palace to investigate her murder and punish the perpetrators involved in this inhuman act.
