Taliban Leader Says Sharia Law Will Be in Force in Afghanistan

The leader of the Taliban movement Hibatullah Akhundzada, said that Sharia law would be in force in Afghanistan.

The Afghan authorities will take serious steps to protect human and minority rights “within the framework of Islam”, Akhundzada noted. He also said that the new Afghan authorities would provide opportunities for foreign investment in the country.

According to him, the ultimate goal of the new Afghan authorities will be to “put the country on its feet as soon as possible” and rebuild it.

Afghanistan undertakes to abide by all international agreements that do not contradict the laws of Islam and national values.

Foreign diplomats, embassies, consulates, humanitarian organizations and investors in Afghanistan will not face problems and can safely work in the country, Akhundzada added.
