Mujahid: Until the Islamic Emirate is recognized, we are not obligated to abide by UN laws

Bayan News – Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesperson for the interim Kabul government, stated that until the Islamic Emirate is officially recognized by the United Nations, they are not obligated to abide by the laws of the organization.

Mujahid made these remarks on Monday, November 20, in an interview with Tolo News, emphasizing that if the Islamic Emirate is recognized by the United Nations, they will not accept anything that contradicts Islamic laws.

The spokesperson for the interim Kabul government added, “As of now, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has not been officially recognized, so we have no obligations towards their laws, and when we are recognized, we will adhere to all laws and norms that are not in contradiction with Islamic Sharia.”

Referring to the presence of the Islamic Emirate’s representative at the United Nations, he also added that Afghanistan, like other countries, should have membership and the people’s right to be represented in this organization.

However, it has been almost three years since the re-establishment of the Islamic Emirate’s rule in Afghanistan, and so far, it has not been recognized by the United Nations.

Issues related to human rights, suppression of women, the ban on education, and other factors have hindered the recognition of the Islamic Emirate.

Several other countries, including the United States, have consistently stated that normalization of relations with the Islamic Emirate will not occur until the interim Kabul government respects human rights issues.
