A number of students from Nengarhar University staged a protest on Sunday and raised Taliban, ISIL, Al-Qaeda and Hezb-e-Islami flags and reportedly they have torn the flag of Afghanistan and were calling ‘Long Live Islamic Caliphate’ and ‘Death to Republic’.
Najib Danish, Deputy Spokesperson for the Ministry of Interior (MoI) said the government will investigate this issue as these students have staged a protest against the national security and law of Afghanistan.
“Supporting terrorist groups is against the law, Ministry of Interior has assigned police to take legal actions against this issue,” Danish said on Monday.
Meanwhile, official in the Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) says those students who have committed this illegal action will be introduced to the legal and judicial institutions.
“First these students have gathered inside the university, then they have staged a protest and a number of people have abused this protest. As they have committed an action which violates the law we will let you know about their submission to the law,” Safiullah Jalalzai, a spokesman for the MoHE said.
Provincial higher education official in Nengarhar says we will not accept any demand which violates the law.
“They have the right to ask their requirements, but we cannot accept any of their demands which violate the law,” Babrak Miakhail, head of the higher education in Nengarhar said.
Earlier, reports emerged about existence of extremist views in a number of students in Afghanistan, but now it is getting serious.
