Supreme leader of the Taliban Mullah Hebtullah Akhundzada has directed the Taliban affiliates to respect his announced general amnesty and stop extrajudicial punishment of the employees of the former Afghan government.
Mullah Hebtullah Akhundzada has also said that the Afghan people should not leave their country as they will be humiliated abroad.
The supreme leader has expressed the directions in Kandahar province while meeting the provincial officials there.
He asked provincial officials, religious scholars, tribal elders, provincial and district governors to discuss with people and convince them not to leave Afghanistan.
“Do not seek favoritism, seek meritocracy and hire people based on their talent and intelligence, implement justice and do not violate rights of people,” Hebtullah instructed people.
About the security of people, he told security officials to carry out their jobs honestly and pay utmost care while patrolling or frisking people.
The emphasis on implementing general amnesty and stopping extrajudicial punishment comes after a video of a former security commander being punished and beaten by a Taliban affiliate went viral.
