Instability Reaches Northern Afghanistan (Report)

Sheberghan residents demonstrate against the governor of Jawzjan, Joma Khan Hamdard, a former commander of Hikmatyar’s Hezb-e Islami. The three days demonstrations caused instability in Northern city of Sheberghan and resulted to the death and injury of demonstrators.

Looking at Hamdard’s background, it seems that he does not have the qualifications to be a governor. Hamdard was not welcomed as the governor of Baghlan province two years back. Baghlan residents demonstrated against him; Hamed Karzai’s government transferred him as the governor of Jawzjan province. But looking at the three days demonstrations, it seems that he has to face the same destiny in Jawzjan as he faced in Baghlan.
