JALALABAD (Pajhwok): The governor of eastern Nangarhar province on Sunday asked religious scholars to help the government eliminate extremism and establish peace in the country.
Salim Khan Kunduzi was speaking at a seminar on religious scholars’ role in prevention of drugs and establishment of peace in Jalalabad, the provincial capital.
“Atrocities and bloodshed by terrorists has brought about a bad name to Islam and such activities portray Islam, which is the religion of peace, as violent and a terrible way of life,” the governor noted.

KABUL (Pajhwok): Hundreds of people on Sunday took to the streets in eastern province of Nangarhar to protest the omission of the words Afghan and Islam from new electronic national identity cards.

But some people agreed with the parliamentary decision that the mention of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan was enough to prove the holder’s nationality and religion.

President Ghani was expected to arrive in Jalalabad, the provincial capital, but bad weather forced him to cancel his trip.

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A senior Afghan military official on Monday said operations were being launched in insecure areas in eastern provinces.

The general said security forces had effectively prevented insurgent activities as a result of wisely-planned operations.
