Post via Islamic Emirate
A distinguished religious scholar of the country Mawlawi Abdul Raqib, the son of Mawlawi Muhammad Idris from Gandomak area in Khogyani district of Nangarhar province was captured by US forces 2 years earlier in Nangarhar and detained in the notorious prisons of Nangarhar and Bagram the following two years. He was martyred 2 days earlier from extreme beating, torture and cruelty and his funeral prayers carried out today in the Eid Gah mosque of Jalalabad city with thousands of our countrymen participating.
This is not the first time that our imprisoned countrymen have been brutally martyred in the notorious prisons, detention centers and dark cells of intelligence agencies of America and her stooge Kabul regime and their bodies displaying signs of torture handed over to their family members.
The Islamic Emirate strongly condemns this barbaric act of the Americans, sends its deepest condolences to the family of Mawlawi Abdul Raqib and considers itself a partner in their grief. At the same time it vows that it shall avenge the innocent martyrs by targeting the foreign invaders and their corrupt lackeys.
Concerning the ongoing barbarities being carried out against our innocent countrymen, detainees and especially religious scholars in the prisons of America and Kabul administration, we call upon the claimants of defenders of human rights and other neutral parties to fulfill their duties in regards to protecting the lives and health of prisoners.
