Nov 13, 2015 - 16:06

KABULinfo-icon (PAJHWOK): The Hezb-i-Millat Afghanistaninfo-icon on Friday called recent remarks of the deputy of chief executive officer (CEO) shameful and defended Wednesday’s protest as a call for justice -- not backed by outsiders.

On Thursday, CEO Mohammad Mohaqiq denounced the protest in Kabul, alleging the rally was stage-managed by those who failed to get jobs in the current administration.

He recalledDaesh fighters had brutally killed a child in front of his parents in Nangarhar province besides putting to death 14 people, including three womeninfo-icon, in Ghorinfo-icon. The rebels had committed similar atrocities in Balkh and Badakhshan provinces as well, he explained.

Mohaqiq added some people who lost the previous election and were unable to get their desired positions in the government were behind Wednesday’s massive protest in the capital.

Hezb-i-Millat Chairman Jafar Mehdi who is also a member of the Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon, told a press conferencethe protest was an incomparable move toward justice, but Mohaqiq tried to spurn people’s civil right.

“No one has the right to attribute the movement to good or bad people,” he said, denouncing the CEO’s utterances as shockingfor the people of Afghanistan.

They would unmask those trying to insult civil and public movements, he vowed, saying people from different tribes and minorities had asked for justice through chanting slogans, without resorting to violence.

The young generation had proved it would not wait for permission from othersif it saw the national interests endanger, the politician said.
