Students rally against Rabbani's killing
About 400 students took part in the rally. They called for the killers of Rabbani, who was killed in a suicide attack at his Kabul residence on Sept. 20, to be produced before the International Court of Justice.
Another three members of the Peace Council were also killed in the attack in the heavily fortified area of Wazir Akbar Khan.
Tight security measures were put in place during the demonstration, which started from the eastern gate of Kabul University and ended at Zanbaq Square in front of UNAMA office.
The protestors chanted "death to Pakistan, death to ISI and death to America." They called for a thorough investigation into Rabbani's killing.
Mohammad Islam, a student engineering faculty, said the demonstration was aimed at conveying the message of Afghanistan people to the international community about Rabbani's assassination.
The protestors issued a nine-article resolution to the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA). It urged UNAMA to send a delegation to Pakistan to pursue the case.
The resolution said the government should prevent targeted killings of Afghan elders and should discuss the issue directly with the Pakistani government.
The demonstrators also said they wanted the Pakistani embassy in Kabul to be closed.
Pakistan’s government has said it is cooperating with the investigation into Rabbani’s death and denied involvement in the killing.
