KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A High Peace Councilinfo-icon (HPC) official has been sacked for calling Talibaninfo-icon ‘Angels of Peace’ -- remarks that evoked an angry reaction from the Ashraf Ghani administration.

HPC Advisor Abdul Hakim Mujahid had been shown the door following his controversial remarks, a statement from the Chief Executive Secretariat confirmed.

A day earlier, the government said it would not allow anyone to call the killers of Afghans the angels of peace by exploiting the freedom of speech.

The Presidential Palace said that the government respected the freedom of speech but would not let anyone glorify the killers of innocent womeninfo-icon and children and other saboteurs.

 “The terrorists, who inflict miseries on our people on a daily basis to please outsiders, deserve to be eliminated. Our security forces are legitimately fighting against these groups,” the statement added.

The Palace advised the people and media outlets no to be influenced by enemy propaganda aimed at sowing seeds of disunity among them at the critical juncture the country stood at.
