Ranks’ Purification Commission has said that they have so far dissociated 2,514 Taliban affiliates from their ranks and the process is going on across Afghanistan.
Head of the commission Lutfullah Hakimi has said that the process of purifying the Taliban ranks has been completed in some provinces and that in others it has been expedited.
The commission is one of the newly founded bodies of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan that was created after the Taliban regained power on August 15 last year.
It works on identifying the Taliban affiliates who mistreat people, have links with ISIS-K, and misuse the name of the Taliban to do illegal activities.
Lutfullah Hakimi said that their activities of identifying and dissociating the people are based on the complaints and information of common people, reports of mainstream media, and social media.
The rank-and-file of the IEA has repeatedly been accused of beating people, cutting boys’ hair, checking their self-phones, and in some cases imprisoning former security forces that all oppose the overall policy of the Taliban and breach the general amnesty announced of supreme leader Mullah Hebtullah Akhundzada.
