Ghazni historical monuments to be restored: Ministry of Information and Culture

The Ministry of Information and Culture of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has informed of restoration of all historical monuments and sites in the country‘s central province of Ghazni. Acting Minister of Information and Culture of the Islamic Emirate Mullah Khairullah Khairkhwa, while, visiting a number of historical monuments and places such as the Mausoleum of Hakim Sanai, Baba Hajji Mosque, Sebuktigin Tomb, the Mausoleum of Sultan Mahmmud Ghaznavi, the Museum of Islamic Art, Bala Hessar and historical minarets of Ghazni said: “Ghazni is one of the provinces that has the most historical monuments, relics and places, and serious attention will be paid to maintain and restore them.” The Acting Minister of Information and Culture Khairkhwa added that the officials of the Ministry of Information and Culture were fully committed to restoring and protecting all cultural heritage, historical sites and relics countrywide, and with the full cooperation of the provincial officials and local people, any possible step towards reconstruction and maintenance of historical sites, relics and places will be taken by the ministry, as well as enough budget will be provided for the restoration of them in the province. Furthermore, he added that the cultural heritage and historical relics and monuments are one of the national capitals and they represent our identity and everyone should be committed to protecting them. Meanwhile, a number of culturists, scholars, influential figures and residents of the province said that the historical monuments and relics represent the country’s national identity and that this is the main responsibility of every Afghan to contribute to the protection of them, as well as the Islamic Emirate Afghanistan (IEA) should pay serious attention in restoration and protection of the historical monuments and relics in any parts of the country, particularly in the Ghazni province. Agha Mohammad a Ghazni culturalist says: “Necessary attention has not been paid to maintain and restore the historical sites during the previous governments.” Adding that after the resumption of power by the Islamic Emirate and the establishment of the Islamic system, fortunately, enough measures have been made to protect and reconstruct them countrywide. Ghazni is one of the 34 provinces of the country which was once considered the center of the civilization and culture of the Islamic world. Decades of conflict and climate change have caused most of the historical sites and relics to destroy in the province and the people of Ghazni ask the government and other foreign institutions to pay necessary attention in the maintenance of them across the province.
