The #UK #does_not_support anyone, including Afghan nationals, seeking to achieve #political_change through #violence, or any activity inciting violence for political purposes, in #Afghanistan, and will not allow UK soil to be used to plan or prepare it...…
and we strongly discourage others from doing so.
To promote peace& stability, to deliver essential humanitarian support to the Afghan people& to address shared concerns on security, there is no alternative to engaging pragmatically with the current administration of Afghanistan.
"Some #British_nationals were arrested about six months ago for #violating AFG's laws& the traditions of Afghans.
The detainees were #released and handed over to their home country on the basis of an agreement reached after a series of meetings between the IEA& the UK."
"We welcome and appreciate the release by the current administration of AFG (TB) of 5 British nationals who were detained in Afghanistan.
These British nationals had no role in the UK Govt’s work in AFG and travelled against the UK Govt’s travel advice. This was a mistake...
...On behalf of the families of the British nationals, we express their apologies for any breach of Afghan culture, customs or laws, and offer their assurance of future good conduct. The UK Government regrets this episode."…

#Taliban's Chief Justice in his 300-page book also discussed #Elections. According to him, there is no confirmation for modern democratic elections in Islam& the Islamic nation did not recognize it. "If there was good in it, why would the companions of Prophet (PBUH) ignored it?"
Calling it something imported from the non-believers, Sheikh Abdul Hakeem Haqqani, named five negative aspects of the democratic #elections, as follow:
1. Democratic elections create #disunity and encourage blameworthy tribal, party and linguistic fanaticism among the people.
2. #Equal value for the #vote of a wise scholar and an ignorant thug, a man and a woman, a believer and a non-believer...which is against the 'Instructions of Islam'.
3. Spending personal money and public treasury's money in a wasteful manner without a Sharia-based justification.
