The World Union of Muslim Scholars condemned the US government’s decision to confiscate 7 billion dollars in assets of the Central Bank of Afghanistan and called for the release of the money and its spending on the Afghan people to alleviate their suffering.
In a statement, the union quoted Arab 21 as saying that the US government’s decision was a deviation from the values of justice and mercy and vice versa.
Calling on international organizations to stand up to this oppressive decision, the union noted that the United States, in cooperation with the United Nations or friendly countries, could spend billions on the Afghan people.
US President Joe Biden on Friday signed an executive order allowing the country to seize Afghanistan’s blocked assets in the United States to pay half that amount to compensate victims of the 9/11 attacks. The other was dedicated to funding aid efforts in Afghanistan.
