Herat scholars say they support Afghan forces
HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): The religious leaders and scholars in western Herat province on Monday announced support Afghan security forces at a time when the country’s forces were fighting against insurgents who bent upon to create chaos in Afghanistan.
Maulvi Mohammad Mohammadi, a prayer leader at Hazrat Bilal Masjid, while speaking to the gathering said that prayer leaders should use mosque for motivating people to stand firmly behind their security forces in war against militants.
He said intelligence agency of the neighboring state used the name of religion for creating mayhem and spilling blood of innocent Afghans.
Mullah Muhammadi, another religious leader, alleged that “the neighboring state is like a sheep apparently looking friendly and soft since but that state has inflicted heavy losses on Afghanistan.”
Maulvi Mustaghni, another religious scholar, said: “Ulama should extend complete cooperation and support to security forces which are a sign of loyalty and sincerity to the motherland.”
He further added the security forces sacrificed their lives and fought day and night to establish peace and security in the country therefore, the masses should appreciate their efforts which would raise their morale.
Abdul Wahid Aasami, director Hajj and religious affairs in Herat, requested all those involved in fight and war in Afghanistan to quit fighting and join peace process.
