Sayyaf blasts govt for ignoring Islamic teachings

Sep 28, 2017 - 16:59

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Jihadi leader Abdul Rab Rasoul Sayyaf on Thursday claimed the government had failed to protect Islamic values by allowing corruption, thefts, vulgarity and immorality.

Addressing a gathering marking the sixth anniversary of former president Burhanuddin Rabbani’s assassination, Sayyaf said the Talibaninfo-icon brought bad name to Islam by waging violence, aggression and cruelty while the government was unable to uphold morality.

The head of Afghanistaninfo-icon Protection and Stability Council (APSC) asked government officials to implement the oath they had taken --protection of religious values. He asked the government to draw a line between art and vulgarity.

The former jihadiinfo-icon leader said: “The word art is beautiful but today scantily dressed womeninfo-icon dance on the state TV and call it art. If it is art, we spurn it and Islam rejects it.”

Sayyaf warned against the growing influence of the enemy within the government. He said: “If the enemy has no allies in the government, it can never hit us. We don’t need the fifth columns serving the enemy.”

He asked the government to dismiss such elements; otherwise peace and stability would continue to elude the country.
