KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Opposition to the reconciliation campaign would grow with the assassination of High Peace Councilinfo-icon Chairman Prof. Burhanuddin Rabbani, political analysts said on Wednesday.  


The former president and Jamiat-i-Islamiinfo-icon leader was killed in a suicide attack on Tuesday evening at his home in the Wazir Akbar Khan area of Kabul on Tuesday evening.

Political analyst Abdul Sattar Sadaat said most of the people were optimistic about the peace process but several political parties and civil societyinfo-icon opposed the effort. "No one is safe in Afghanistaninfo-icon now and we still want peace in the country."

Gen. Abdul Wahid Taqat, another political analyst, agreed Rabbani's passing would have negative impact on the peace drive.  

It would take time and efforts for the campaign to regain the momentum that the late leader had lent it, said Muhammad Younus Fakoor, another political observer.

Regarding the silence of the Talibaninfo-icon on the incident, Fakoor said the fighters wanted to prevent ethnic and linguistic problems from surfacing at the present juncture.
