Recovering usurped lands: Hundreds of acres reclaimed in Badghis


QALA-I-NAW: More than 750,000 acres have been wrested back from usurpers in the country’s western Badghis province in the last year, the Land Usurpation Prevention Commission said in a statement the other day. Director of Land Usurpation Prevention Commission, Abdul Hai Munir said that more than 750,000 acres of state land has been reclaimed in different areas of the province in the last year and the process will continue until all state land is recovered, according to the statement. He said the recovered lands had been usurped by some powerful individuals and officials of the previous government during the past few decades. Some residents were also happy over the recovery of usurped state lands. Amir Mohammad, an inhabitant of Qala-i-Naw city, welcomed the development and said the state land recovery process should be implemented transparently and without any discrimination. He emphasized the commission concerned should reclaim all state lands from usurpers in the province. Meanwhile, Sayed Mahmood Fahim, a university teacher, said the reclaimed land should be used for the construction of public buildings such as mosques, schools, clinics, Eid Gah and green spaces. Earlier, the Islamic Emirate formed a commission consisting of various government agencies to prevent state land grabbing and wrest back usurped lands. This is to be noted that after the resumption of power by the Islamic Emirate, tens of thousands of acres of state land have so far been identified and most of them reclaimed in various provinces of the country and the process was underway to reclaim the rest of state usurped in the provinces, a move which has been welcomed by Afghans.
