Hundreds of people on Sunday took to the streets in eastern province of Nangarhar to protest the omission of the words Afghan and Islam from new electronic national identity cards.

After the parliament approved the Census Law last year, some lawmakers, civil society activists and political parties protested for the inclusion of the two words in new ID cards.

But some people agreed with the parliamentary decision that the mention of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan was enough to prove the holder’s nationality and religion.
