One of Afghanistan’s most powerful warlords has defended the popular right to protest against the presidential election results, raising fears that the country could be engulfed by violence if supporters of the losing candidates reject the poll as being rigged.
Speaking on national television, he accused the country’s Interior Minister, Hanif Atmar, of “forcing people to keep silent”.
His comments follow threats from the Interior Ministry to “break the teeth” of anyone who demonstrates.
The Afghan people know that this alleged "election" was a complete hoax and a farce.
The question is, what are they prepared to do about this reality?
