Students protest Rabbani's assassination
KUNDUZ CITY/TALOQAN (PAN): Hundreds of university students in northern Kunduz and Takhar provinces protested on Monday against the assassination of former president, Burhanuddin Rabbani, officials said.
Nearly 600 students in Kunduz staged a protest, chanting "Long live mujahidin, death to the Killers of Rabbani and death to Pakistan."
Rabbani was a mujahid and patriotic man who was killed by the enemies of Afghanistan, a student of law, Khan Mohammad Wahdat, told Pajhwok Afghan News. "We are ready to avenge his death."
Another student of the literature faculty, Habibullah, said the enemies of the country, especially Pakistan, did not want a stable and peaceful Afghanistan.
The students also issued a five-article resolution, condemning Rabbani's assassination and asking the government to include Sept. 20 as a day of mourning in the constitution.
The protestors were not allowed to turn violent, said police spokesman, Syed Sarwar Hussaini.
Separately, the students of Takhar University also called for unmasking the killers of Rabbani. A thousand students shouted slogans against the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
Last week, students of Herat and Balkh province staged similar protests.
