Female NGO workers can earn living through alternative ways, Mujahid told BBC

KABUL: Zabihullah Mujahid, the Spokesman for the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) has said that female non-governmental organization (NGO) workers can earn a living through alternative ways.
In an interview with BBC, the Islamic Emirate’s spokesman said: “When a Sharia-based order gets implemented, it is natural that certain people will suffer, but they can consider alternative ways of making a living.”
“All people do not earn livelihood through this way only. There are many other ways. Moreover, it is important to earn livelihood through Sharia-based ways. If a person says he would do robbery to earn bread for his children and that his children would be hungry if it is banned, can we allow him to do robbery?” Mujahid said.
He said that since NGOs are not under the control of the IEA and they employ foreigners, female workers are more vulnerable.
The IEA’s spokesman went on as saying that there could be exceptional cases when women are needed to work, but the environment should be according to the Islamic principles.
The assertions from the IEA’s spokesman come amid an outcry by the international community following the IEA’s ban on women working for NGOs.
