Senators want foreign forces stop arbitrary operations
In a general session of the house, senators said that foreign forces came to Afghanistan for their own interests, not for the interests of Afghans.
Gulalai Akbari, a member of the house from Badakhshan province, said insecurity was on the rise and militants were getting more power by passing each day.
She criticized security departments of negligence in improving security in border areas and said: “The borders are open for foreign rebels. More than 200 rebels having black flags have recently entered into Afghanistan from Chitral area of Pakistan.”
Some days back, provincial council head of Badakhshan province, told Pajhwok Afghan News 200 armed insurgents including Chechens, Uzbek, Tajik and Pakistanis have crossed the border from Pakistan to Arghistan district of Badakhshan.
He said that Khash, baharak and Zibak districts were under high threat of rebels if security situation was not improved.
Local officials had said that 250 militants including foreigners were fighting against the government in Yamgan, Warduj and Juram districts of Badakhshan.
Akbari also criticized the government for talking about peace process with Pakistan and said: “Peace would not be ensured in Afghanistan until Pakistan does not demonstrate honesty in peace process.”
Another senator Farida Kuchi also blamed Pakistan of having hands in disrupting Afghanistan and said that Pakistan had always tried to support militants against Kabul government.
Her colleague from Nimroz province Nader Baloch also said that security situation had worsened in the country and security organs should be equipped more to fight enemies.
Another member of the Meshrano Jirga, Safiullah Baloch said: “Security, governance and economy has got worsened and delaying of distribution of electronic ID cards, signing of an intelligence agreement with Pakistan also caused people to lose trust on the government.”
He said agreement signed with Pakistan had widened distance between the government and the nation.
On the other hand, a senator from Kabul province Farhad Sakhi said that no one should make plots against Mujahideen.
The views about Mujahideen expressed after foreign forces searched the house of a former Jihadi commander Jan Mohammad and destroyed his ammunition and weapons two days ago in central Parwan province.
He said that foreign forces should not target the house of Jihadi commander.
His colleague Muhayudin Munsif also criticized foreign forces’ operation in Parwan and said that they should target the centers of insurgents instead of targeting the houses of civilians.
Munsif added only Afghan forces should be allowed to search the house of a commander.
Meshrano Jirga speaker Abdul Hadi Muslimyar also condemned the attack in Parwan and said: “America did not come here to help Afghans, but came here for safeguarding their own interests.”
Muslimyar directed internal security and defense commissions of the house to investigate the incident and share report with the general session of the house.
