Dr. Mohammad Atif killed in Kabul, Chairman of the Central Council of Jamiat e Islah (20210202)

One of the biggest and most disciplined Islamist organisations, Jamiat-e Eslah (the Afghan version of the Muslim Brotherhood), does say it has faith in electoral politics in general; however, it did not support 2014 election, because the country is still ‘occupied’ and war is continuing, making free and fair elections impossible. It has reportedly found vocal sceptics of elections among its young followers after Morsi’s fall.

Afghan Society for Social Reforms is an Islamist nonprofit organization. Established in 2004, it operates in Kabul and other important cities of Afghanistan, and is financed by a number of Afghan intellectuals, teachers and businessman.
