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.
After the parliament approved the Census Law last year, some lawmakers, civil society activists and political parties protested for the inclusion of the two words in new ID 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.

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Provincial Council (PC) members on Tuesday welcomed President Ashraf Ghani’s proposed changes in the administration of eastern Nangarhar province and urged him to appoint qualified and deserving individuals.

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

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