MEHWAR: Removing Ethnicity From e-NIC Discussed
More than 50 members of parliament on Saturday signed a petition against the decision to include nationality and ethnicity in the new electronic National Identity Cards (e-NIC).
The MPs said the inclusion of such information was not necessary and urged the government to review the decision.
Following the establishment of the National Unity Government (NUG), President Ashraf Ghani approved the population registration law in terms of which the inclusion of the nationality and ethnicity information were not included.
The law was then criticized by a number of people and the president issued a legislative decree stating nationality and ethnicity information had to be included.
In this episode of Mehwar host, Jamal Nasir Farahmand discusses the topic with Haroon Mutarif president of Guzar movement.
