The Jamiat-e-Islami led by Salahuddin Rabbani has issued a tough warning regarding the recent government decision to oust the Balkh governor Ata Mohammad Noor.

Jamiat-e-Islami in a statement said the party supports peace, stability, and partnership to ensure the rights of the people and any move compromising with the rights of the people will not be acceptable.

The statement further added that Ata Mohammad Noor is the chief executive of Jamiat-e-Islami and the part was one of the main sides in the formation of the government of national unity.

The party also added that any unilateral move or decision will be in contrast to the principles of partnership and will end the legitimacy of the unity government.

It also added that the violations being committed by the government are under strict supervision of Jamiat party, insisting that the time has come to defend from the rights of the people.

According to Jamiat party, the conditions regarding Ata Mohammad Noor were shared with the government from the beginning but not only the conditions of the party have been met but the government has adopted a policy of hatred and hostility.

Jmaiat-e-Islami warned that such steps are not acceptable and the government will be responsible for the repercussions, emphasizing that the party will use all options to defend the rights of the people if the government did not reconsider its decision regarding the Balkh governor.

This comes as the Office of the President announced Monday that President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has approved the resignation of Balkh governor Ata Mohammad Noor.

The Office of the President in a statement said Mr. Noor had resigned from his position as the governor of Balkh province a while ago.

The statement further added that President Ghani has approved his resignation and Engineer Mohammad Daud has been appointed as the new governor of Balkh province.a
