Preemptive steps urged to stop IS emergence in Kunar

Preemptive steps urged to stop IS emergence in Kunar

Mar 12, 2015 - 17:45

ASADABAD (Pajhwok): A number of residents of different districts on Thursday asked the government to adopt preemptive measures to stop the emergence of the Islamic State (Dayesh) in eastern Kunar province.

At a well-attended gathering arranged in Asadabad, the provincial capital, tribal elders, religious leaders and people from different walks of life called nipping the evil in the bud.

Haji Mohammad Rozi, a former jihadiinfo-icon commander, told participants that Talibaninfo-icon’s existence in Afghanistaninfo-icon was a project, which was about to be replaced by Dayesh with the support of different countries.

“We don’t want Afghans to be killed on different pretexts. Now the backers of Taliban paint this terror group as Dayesh, which is a great joke on the long-suffering nation,” he noted.

Cleric Maulviinfo-icon Najibullah Haqyar said the government should respect religious figures and jihadi commanders for the sake of lasting peace and security in the country.

Jamaluddin Sayar, a provincial council member, said another catastrophe was in the making in the shape of Dayesh. The government and people should work together to ward off that threat, he suggested.
