Sheikh Asif Mohsini Kandhari, the Iran-backed cleric opposed review and amendment of the “Shia Family Law” approved by Karzai, which UN says legalizes rape.
Addressing a press conference, he warned the Government not to review the law saying “International community should not interfere internal affairs of Afghanistan.”
Sheikh Mohsini Kandhari, who drafted the outrageous “Law”, is an Iran-backed Shiite cleric of Pushtoon ancestry. He has called a protest demonstration on Thursday against the criticism of the “Family Law”.
On the other hand, prominent Hazara politician and Head of the Parliamentary Committee for Education, Religeous Affairs and Culture Mr. Muhaqiq while talking to Daily Outlook Afghanistan said “the controversial articles should be amended, otherwise the Law is an offense to Hazaras.” He added “Hazara ethnic of Afghanistan form the absolute majority of Shiite, and the law is against the aspirations and practices of Hazaras.”
