Taliban Repeat Promises of Investigating Problems of Shia Community in Afghanistan


The Political Affairs Deputy to the Taliban Prime Minister Mawlawi Abdul Kabir has reiterated the group's previous promise to resolve the problems of the Shia community.

Abdul Kabir said that the Shia community’s problems will be investigated.

He discussed this in a meeting with Mohammad Akbari, a former Shia-Hazara member of the Afghan Parliament.

Abdul Kabir, however, has not elaborated on when the investigation will be initiated. He has stressed that his office has received suggestions from Shia leaders on how to resolve their problems.

The Taliban has not explained what are the problems and issues that the Shia community in Afghanistan faces under their rule. They have been silent on the recognition of Jafari Shia sect as one of the two officially recognised sects of Afghanistan.

Recently, the members of the Afghan Shia Ulema Assembly criticised the Taliban for not recognising the Jafari sect which is one of their main demands from the Taliban.
