Respected lecturers, teachers, professors and directors of educational institutes!

Peace, Blessing and Mercy of Allah be upon you all and may He accept all your services for our religion and nation.

You are already well aware about the issue and current conditions prevailing in Afghanistan. Just as the occupying forces have continued operations and bombings on the military front, politically they are trying to mislead the public and give legitimacy to their stooges and Shah Shuja’s of this era.

The parliamentary elections process by the invaders is aimed at fashioning a supposed parliament through which it can sign documents about prolonging the occupation and attaining their colonial objectives. And that is why they are campaigning so hard for parliamentary elections. Since this entire process from start to finish is planned and end results reaped by the invaders, therefore it becomes the religious and national obligation of every Afghan to boycott and neutralize this process launched by the invaders.

And since teachers and directors of educational institutes are influential members of societies, they must ardently prevent their students and fellow colleagues from participating in this process. Additionally, that the directors of election process want to open polling stations inside educational institutes. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Commission for Teaching, Learning and Higher Education orders all educational workers, teachers, lecturers and school principles in all cities and rural areas of the country to halt transformation of their schools into polling stations and prevent their teachers and students from participating as election workers.

The Islamic Emirate does not wish that common people or teachers and students of educational institutes be harmed in the attacks of Mujahidin. Teachers and students of educational institutes must stay away from all enemy political processes and must not allow the invaders and their stooges to utilize their schools for the implementation of their evil projects.

In the end we must emphasize that the election process has no Islamic or Afghan essence but is a foreign plot to prolong occupation, mask military invasion and deceive the common mindset, which is both funded and its final results dictated by the infidel invaders. Hence, it is the duty of every true Muslim and Afghan to nip this plot in the bud so that the invaders are disappointed in their plans and forced to withdraw from our homeland.
