Over two thousand prisoners to be released in Afghanistan

Kabul, Jun 28 (Prensa Latina) The Supreme Court announced today that Mullah Hebatullah Ajundzada, leader of the Taliban, ordered the release of nearly 2,200 prisoners in Afghanistan, on the occasion of the celebration of Eid al Adha.

The Supreme Court explained on Twitter that Ajundzada’s decision led to the release of 2,178 prisoners, while 489 others were benefited from sentence reductions.

There are no details at the moment about those released and the Taliban has not commented on the matter.

Eid al Adha, or Celebration of Sacrifice, is one of the most important festivities for Muslims and commemorates the passage in the Koran, which shows Abraham’s willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael as an act of obedience to God, before God intervened to provide him with a lamb for sacrifice, instead of his son.
