The dispatch of AAN’s Borhan Osman is quoted here, referring to civil society and other protests that also attacked the Muslim clergy in the context of the lynching of a young Kabul woman:

“These episodes have angered the mullahs (clerics) and I can see they are now drawing a line between this government and the former,” said Borhan Osman, a researcher at the Afghanistan Analysts Network.

“They see the current government as evil, a foreign conspiracy that is allowing a struggle against Islam.”
