Post via Islamic Emirate
Our countrymen are aware that the officials of various organs of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan are striving day and night in military, cultural, political, education, social and multiple other fields for the defense of our homeland, establishment of a pure Islamic government and to serve and better the lives of our oppressed Muslim nation.
Lately the Department for Prevention of Civilian Casualties has received many complaints and proposals from tribal chieftains, elders and ordinary Muslims around the country about the conduct of drivers of transport and freight vehicles. Complaints about our respected countrymen recurrently facing problems, casualties and losses at the hands of drivers and transport companies during their journeys.
We keep witnessing that many of our countrymen are frequently inflicted with harm and death in traffic incidents such as the one which took place yesterday in Ghazni’s Maqur district where 73 innocent travelers were killed and tens of others injured including women, children, elderly and young men.
On these basis the Department for Prevention of Civilian Casualties working in the framework of Commission for Military Affairs of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan considered it an appropriate time to intervene. The Department for Prevention of Civilian Casualties – to safeguard and protect the lives of our countrymen – hereby issues a notice to all drivers and companies of all private, transport and freight vehicles to strictly follow all traffic rules while journeying on major roads.
The Islamic Emirate is obliged to take Shari and legal action against all offenders from now onwards.
Similarly if any of our countrymen are harassed by drivers during their journeys, they may forward their complaints to the local Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate or contact the provincial officials of Department for Prevention of Civilian Casualties via the numbers provided below.
