Khost Residents Receive Orders to Remove Afghanistan’s National Flag From Homes
Footages posted on social media show that Khost Governor has ordered the residents of Khost province in eastern Afghanistan to remove Afghanistan’s national flag (black, red, green) from the rooftops and vehicles.
In the video, which was released on Saturday (February 26th), Khost Governor Mawlawi Mohammad Nabi Omari advises the people of Khost that they have only three days to remove the national flags from their shops, homes, and vehicles.
Omari said: “From today on, you have only three days to remove the flag of the previous government that you hanged on the rooftops, shops and vehicles.”
He added that hanging the white flag – the Taliban flag – on the rooftops, shops, cars and motorcycles is optional, stressing that the previous flag is no longer acceptable.
The governor of Khost has emphasized that no one will be allowed to install the national flag three days later.
The removal of the country’s national flag has provoked protests in the past six months.
