New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīhullah Mujāhid: “Remarks Regarding the Killing of Children in the Serena Hotel”
Last Friday on 29/12/1392 Islamic Emirate’s valiant Mujahideen attacked Serena Hotel which is located in the heart of Kabul adjacent to the Arg (Presidential Palace).
In the attack numerous foreign and internal agents were killed for their crimes against the Afghan people. We say with regret that during this attack reports were published that a journalist along with his wife and two children were also killed. The Kabul administration, consistent with their habit, slurred the Islamic Emirate and accused them of the death of this family. The truth is that this killing is not the work of the Islamic Emirate. From the beginning the Islamic Emirate has based its campaign on the sublime principles of Islam including the protection of women and children from the trauma of war. The blessed religion of Islam prohibits the killing of women and children even in times of war. So on what basis would the Islamic Emirate condone, let along perpetuate the killing of women and children. If the Islamic Emirate wanted to perpetuate such actions there was absolutely no need to undertake such risks of attacking the well fortified Serena Hotel. In reality the targeting of civilians, women and children can be done in most public places. The truth is the foreign invaders and their puppets have themselves perpetuated this vile act so they can libel the Mujahideen. They knew that the attack had been undertaken by the Mujahideen therefore any acts inside will naturally be attributed to them.
During the past 13 years the people of Afghanistan have witnessed on innumerable occasions that whenever the foreigners are attacked, they retaliate by indiscriminately shooting and killing ordinary Afghans. We have seen in numerous instances that in such attacks they have killed civilians and even their own allies.
The Islamic Emirate is saddened by the killing of the journalist and his family while attributing these incriminate actions to the cowardly foreigner invaders and their puppets, mourns with the family of the deceased and prays for their patience and steadfastness in this difficult time.

New interview from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “With Moulavi Aḥmad Bilāl, the Head of Control and Coordination Commission for NGO’s and Companies”
In the following lines we would like to turn your attention to an interview which has been conducted with the head of Commission for NGO’s and Companies:
Question: What are the objectives behind forming this commission in the hierarchy of the Islamic Emirate and what is its composition?
Answer: You know that after the American invasion over Afghanistan, a war situation is prevailing inside our beloved homeland. The Americans have imposed a type of government over Afghanistan which is the most corrupt regime in the world. Under the shadow of this corrupt regime, besides looting, usurpation and pillage, a great deal of injustice has been done in the field of human assistance.
On one side, the war stricken people of our country are facing numerous problems and issues in their day to day lives and they need help. On the other side, whatever comes to Afghanistan under the name of assistance, that is largely spent in paying the high salaries of the administrative personnel of foreign NGO’s, paying the rents of luxurious and grand palaces, purchasing the latest model vehicles and other extravagant requirements of their officials. The remaining fund which is allocated for a project, most part of it either goes to the pockets of influential figures inside these NGO’s or to the pockets of corrupt officials of the stooge admin of Kabul. To deliver these supports to the eligible people and places and similarly to halt the selfish activities of the enemy in the disguise of assistance, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan decided to constitute a separate commission for the control of NGO’s and companies and for the well organization and co-ordination of their activities and expenditures.
I would like to mention the second article of the ‘Modus Operandi’ of this commission which encompasses the answer of the above question:
(Article-2: The commission of control and co-ordination of NGO’s and companies is established by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan which will permit, organize and oversee the activities of NGO’s and companies as per needed.)
As far as the structure of this commission is concerned, it is as following:
A director at the top, a deputy director and two well-experienced members, admin and financial organs, organ for co-ordination of re-construction, organ for co-ordination of wireless, public relations organ and branches in all provinces.
Question: What kinds of activities have been performed by your commission inside the country till now?
Answer: The NGO’s and companies control and co-ordination commission has successfully prevented the waywardness which had become the order of the day by some irresponsible individuals misusing the name of Taliban or the Islamic Emirate. They used to make contacts with NGO’s or telephone companies by various means and pressurized them for fulfilling their illegal and unjustified demands. This phenomenon had created impediments in executing the public welfare activities. The human assistance could not be easily supplied to where it was really needed and the poor and needy people had no access to these facilities. On the other side, a baseless propaganda was launched that the Islamic Emirate is impeding the development activities inside the country. By the grace of Allah Almighty, all these complaints and issues were settled down by forming this commission. We managed to provide our programs and rules of procedures through our well-organized setup to our representative offices in all provinces. In the beginning, we want to stop the willfulness of the self-interested individuals and secondly, we would like to get detailed information about the work and activities of all the human assistance organizations, private companies and wireless networks. They will be supervised so that the public welfare works are well organized and the ordinary people are benefited. We can say that a positive change is visible as compared to the previous years.
Question: Do you supervise and control the activities of NGO’s or only remain in contact with them inside the country?
Answer: This commission has no specific agreements or contracts with NGO’s and private companies, rather we have our representative who remains in contact with them via telephone round the clock. He can easily be contacted by all the concerned sides and can convey their requirements and issues to us very easily.
Nevertheless, the working procedure is that whenever a project is implemented somewhere, after its approval, an application of permission is drafted by the local dignitaries to the Jihadi in-charge of the respective province. After the approval of the provincial representative of our commission, if the Jihadi in-charge also agrees, then the subject is deeply discussed in a meeting of this commission. After deep analysis, a permission letter is provided according to Article No-8 of our working procedure. The implementation of the project is then supervised by the provincial representative of our commission from the beginning to the end so that all kind of fraudulence could be prevented and the quality of the project is maintained throughout. When the project is completed, once again, the commission is informed about it.
Question: What kind of activities are not allowed by your commission for NGO’s and what is eligible for them?
Answer: The Islamic Emirate has never opposed the reconstruction, rehabilitation and development of our beloved homeland. There is no hindrance for all those individuals or groups who want to rebuild and provide human assistance for the relief of our masses. They can openly go forward with their activities while observing the rules and regulations laid down for this purpose. Article-3 of the ‘Modus Operandi’ of this commission says as following:
(The control and co-ordination commission of the Islamic Emirate for NGO’s and companies bears the responsibility to allow all those public relief works like rehabilitation and human assistance carried out by NGO’s and companies, in accordance with the principles laid down for them. This commission is also responsible for halting all those activities which are harmful for our religion and people and damaging the ongoing Jihadi process.)
However, some foreign organizations are found involved in such activities which are against the sacred religion of Islam, under the disguise of human welfare NGO’s. They want to convert our Muslim masses especially the children and young ones to Christianity and other null and void beliefs. It is the obligation of this commission to halt these kinds of illegal activities as it is mentioned in Article-4 of the working procedure of this commission as following:
(Those NGO’s which invite the people to un-Islamic ideologies like Judaism, Christianity etc. and they are involved in activities against Mujahidin, they are absolutely prohibited to work. The control and co-ordination commission for NGO’s and companies will halt their activities with its full strength.)
Question: You know that some of our countrymen are working with these NGO’s. Now according to your policies, these Afghans are permitted to work with them or not? If the answer is yes, then what are the sectors in which they can work?
Answer: The Islamic Emirate finds no difficulty in working with those NGO’s which are solely involved in public relief works on the basis of human sympathy. However, it is advisable for these Afghans working with foreign welfare NGO’s that they should observe their Islamic and religious obligations and Afghan traditions as it is their Islamic and national responsibility for being a Muslim and an Afghan.
Question: If the demands or working procedures which are laid down for NGO’s and companies are not observed by them, then how you deal with them and can you close down their activities?
Answer: The NGO’s and companies which violate the rules and regulations furnished by the control and co-ordination commission for them, or do not fulfill the accepted articles of an agreement for a specific project, these kinds of NGO’s and companies are not given the permission to work anymore. Mujahidin of the Islamic Emirate can halt these kinds of violators. But if they want to re-start their activities, then they should get work permit after providing the guarantee of no further negligence.
Question: Do you have the responsibility of control and co-ordination of telephone networks inside the country? We hear that the foreign invaders and their internal stooges are misusing these telephone networks against Mujahidin and the masses of country. What steps have been taken by you in this regard?
Answer: Yes. This commission is also responsible for observing the telephone networks besides the NGO’s and companies. This commission has laid down different working procedures for these telephone networks, keeping in mind the prevailing circumstances of the respective province where these networks operate. In some provinces, these networks are allowed to operate for twenty four hours and in some areas, they work in the day time and are closed in the night time while in some other areas, they are allowed to operate for some specific hours. All these procedures depend on the demands of the masses and Mujahidin. By implementing this strategy, we have successfully prevented the raids and indiscriminate bombing of the enemy in various parts of the country which has inevitably resulted in the considerable decline of civilian casualties. On the other side, the Islamic Emirate has provided various kinds of facilities to these companies in the fields of security and the transportation of their personnel and equipments. I can utter with full assurance that no one can threaten any more the employees of these telephone networks for fulfilling their illegitimate personal demands nor can anyone seize their personal effects and vehicles. Overall, these networks are obliged to follow and observe the rules and regulations laid down for them.
Question: On behalf of the NGO’s control and co-ordination commission, if you have any message for them (i.e. for the continuation of their activities, what should they do and what should they refrain from), please do share it with us so that it is openly conveyed to them.
Answer: Afghanistan is a war-stricken country which has been facing various kinds of troubles for the last several years therefore it desperately needs assistance and support in each and every walk of life. For keeping the door of human relief activities permanently open, our demand is that human welfare, rehabilitation works and health and education facilities should be provided to all citizens of our homeland without any discrimination. Favoritism and inequity between the inhabitants and areas should strictly be avoided.
Similarly, I would like to clarify to all assistance NGO’s, societies and private companies that the control and co-ordination commission is formed in the administrative hierarchy of the Islamic Emirate so that the prevailing hindrances in the reconstruction and rehabilitation activities and the distribution of human reliefs should be removed. No one apart from the general representative of the this commission has the right to be in contact with these NGO’s and companies by adopting one name or the other. They are also advised to directly convey their issues and complaints to the above mentioned commission via its representative.
My message to those Mujahidin who are fortified and living in the warm strongholds for defending Islam and their homeland is that they should be fully vigilant against all kinds of conspiracies of the enemy. They should continue their support to the local representatives of this commission and fully assist him when needed. They should also share their information with him and should not allow anyone to create the atmosphere of distrust under any disguise for the achievement of one’s personal malicious interests.
The valiant Afghan masses should also realize that the control and co-ordination commission for NGO’s and companies will not leave any stone unturned while enjoying your collaboration for the solution of all problems so that, on one side, the issues of our oppressed masses are tackled and they are provided a chance to leave a peaceful and prosperous life; and on the other side, the conspiracies of the foreign enemies and their internal stooges under the disguise of human relief are halted.
Alemara: Thank you very much for giving us a chance to conduct this detailed interview.
Head of the commission: I pray to Allah Almighty for even more intensification of your media struggle for the success of ongoing Jihad and depicting the true picture of the Islamic Emirate to the world.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “Notification Regarding the Upcoming Elections”
Everyone is aware that America and her allies are fleeing after having failed in occupying Afghanistan through a direct invasion due to sacrifices of the Mujahid nation and the help of Almighty Allah therefore it is now trying to prolong it through an indirect method. Indirect invasion means that America will roll up its presence from many areas and hide in fox holes however it will install a head of state who appears to be an Afghan but will have American mentality, vision, deeds, creed and ideals while openly being in conflict with the clear teachings of the sacred religion of Islam. By giving prestige and power to its stooges, America wants to enslave the valiant Afghan nation to its desires which it could not through intimidation, bombings, torture, raids, barbarity and countless other tactics.
Just as Allah (SWT) has made it an obligation upon us to establish an Islamic government, He has similarly enjoined Jihad upon us in order to put an end to the open and hidden occupation of Kufr (infidelity) of our Islamic soil. Therefore it is the religious obligation of every Afghan to fulfill their duty by foiling the latest plot of the invaders that is guised in the garb of elections.
We strongly urge all the esteemed Ulama (religious scholars), spiritual leaders, elders, famous personalities as well as the teachers and well educated people of the Madaris (religious seminaries), schools and universities to inform the entire nation about such filthy enemy plots and make it known to each and every person of this society that their casting ballots and participation is considered assistance of the Kuffar (infidels) and their stooges against Islam and against this nation which guarantees our loss in this world and the hereafter. Allah (SWT) says in verse 113 of Surah Hud: (And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than Allah, nor you would then be helped.)
In this regard the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan encourages all its countrymen to avoid becoming victims of the enemy conspiracies in the upcoming elections process; reject it wholly and do not put yourselves in danger. Everyone should also realize that casting votes will not yield an outcome as the actual election has already taken place in the offices of CIA and Pentagon and their favorite candidate has already won.
The Islamic Emirate shall never allow the enemy to be successful in achieving its goals through this fake theatrical charade. In this regard we have given orders to all our Mujahideen to use all force at its disposal to disrupt these upcoming sham elections; target all its workers, activists, callers, security apparatus and offices and the nation must also stop the process of elections from taking place in mosques, clinics, schools, madaris and other public places.
We once again call on all of our countrymen to keep away from electoral offices, voting booths, rallies and campaigns so that may Allah forbid, their lives are not put into danger. If anyone still persists on participating then they are solely responsible of any loss in the future.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Qārī’ Yusef Aḥmadī: “Remarks Regarding the Killing of Turkmenistan Border Guards”
Some media outlets published a report two days earlier asserting that 3 border guards from neighboring country of Turkmenistan were killed in the border region by unknown gunmen that apparently crossed over from our country. Regretfully some officials of the stooge Kabul regime in Badghis province blamed the incident on the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate to achieve their malicious objective.
The Islamic Emirate strongly condemns this harmful incident and categorically rejects its involvement in such detrimental and irresponsible actions while it also extends its condolences to Turkmenistan and the family members of the said police officers.
It must be mentioned that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan wants cordial relations in the framework of mutual respect with its neighboring and regional countries as well as the international community. It does not interfere with the affairs of others and neither does it accept interference by others in its own affairs. The Islamic Emirate had good relations with its neighboring countries during the time of its rule and is still committed to the principles of good neighborly relations and mutual respect.
We must say that Turkmenistan has respected the principles of good neighborly relations with our beloved homeland in the past and has not interfered with the affairs of our country. We respect and encourage this sound policy of the said neighboring country and hope for its continuation in the future.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “Regarding the Genocide of the Muslims of Central African Republic”
For had it not been that Allah checks one set of people by means of another, monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, wherein the Name of Allah is mentioned much would surely have been pulled down. Verily, Allah will help those who help His (Cause). Truly, Allah is All-Strong, All-Mighty. (Al-Hajj:40)
The genocide of the Muslims has been taking place at the hands of criminal Christian thugs for the past three months in the Central African Republic during the span of which tens of thousands of Muslims have been killed while millions have been forced to flee their areas due to the oppression at the hands of these barbaric criminals.
The horrific pictures distributed by some media outlets clearly show how bands of local bestial criminals mercilessly murder Muslims on main roads, villages, markets places and even places of prayers and religious centers before setting their bodies of fire!
Unfortunately all of this is taking place while no country or international and humanitarian organizations, that always call themselves the champions and protectors of mankind and humanity, sit idly by! This in return encourages these sadistic murderers to further continue with their transgressions!
The genocide and forced migration of the Muslims from their areas in CAR, besides being one of the biggest crimes in the history of mankind, poses a danger to the peaceful life and coexistence of Muslims and Christians throughout Africa while it is the main ingredient that will spread the fire of sedition through the entire continent and will start an armed conflict and wedge a divide between the Muslim and Christian nations that have been living side by side for centuries.
Therefore the Islamic Emirate, while considering the emancipation of these oppressed Muslims in the Central African Republic to be the humanitarian and ethical duty of the entire world and especially the Shariah obligation of the Muslim Ummah (nation), strongly condemns these merciless killings at the hands of these bloodthirsty militias. It also calls on the Islamic Conference, United Nations Organizations, International Human Rights Committee, African Union and the highest ranking religious leader of Christians in the Vatican (Pope Francis) to take steps in preventing the mass killings of Muslims in CAR and to fulfill their ethical and humanitarian duties in this regard.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “Regarding Allegations By Agha Jan Mutasim and the Dubai Initiative”
Media reports have recently published a statement attributed to a former official of The Islamic Emirate Agha Jan Mutasim which alleges that high ranking officials and commanders of the Islamic Emirate or the Islamic Movement of Taliban convened a meeting in the United Arab Emirates and showed willingness to launch a peace initiative!!?
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan once again declares to all parties that Agha Jan Mutasim does not hold a position in the Islamic Emirate and neither can he represent it. Similarly the Islamic Emirate considers the recent actions and activities of Agha Jan Mutasim detrimental to both the principles of the Islamic Emirate as well as to the goals of the sacred Jihad while being beneficial for both the invading Americans and their stooges. No representatives of the Islamic Emirate have either attended a meeting in Dubai and neither has talks taken place with the stooge Kabul regime or it’s so called High Peace Council. The Islamic Emirate has delegated officials and a political office to conduct its political activities and if a need arises for contacts with any party, a responsible organ will be tasked with the permission of its head, under the guidance of its leadership and on the practical needs of Jihad. That no one for sure knows the names of the participants that attended the meeting in Dubai, this in itself reveals that neither has a meeting been convened nor has a substantial initiative been launched.
The Kabul regime’s so called High Peace Council which constantly tries to keep its fixed salaries flowing has repeatedly published such futile and baseless reports to stir up media frenzy with false claims of holding talks with rogue figures. The foreign invaders and their hirelings should not strive for repeating their past failed and futile experiments. Ostentatious negotiations and exhibitions will not result in anything other than complicating the issue and prolonging the war. If the Americans and her allies hope that with such fake political proceedings they will divert the attention of the Afghan nation and deplete their fervor for Islam and independence, then they are mistaken and need to reassess the ground realities.
