Daesh an intelligence plot to kill Afghans: Muslimyar
JALALABAD (Pajhwok): Senate chairman Fazl Hadi Muslimyar on Friday said intelligence agencies of neighbouring countries had started killing the Afghans under a new conspiracy called Daesh or Islamic State.
Muslimyar spoke after offering Eid prayers in the capital of eastern Nangarhar province, Jalalabad, at the Shahi Palace, where local officials, tribal elders and other influential figures were present.
The Meshrano Jirga chairman later told reporters that Daesh was a plot hatched by intelligence agencies of neighbouring countries aimed at killing the Afghans.
“I have said eight months ago that the white flags would be replaced with black ones. The ground for Daesh has been prepared in Afghanistan. It is a new conspiracy of the intelligence agencies of the neighbouring countries to kill the Afghans in the name of Daesh.”
“Our demand is that the neighbouring countries should stop fueling the fire in Afghanistan because its sparks would reach them. The Afghans are confident the fire did not reduce them to ashes and those burning the fire will be themselves reduced to ashes.”
Calling the peace process the only way to bring stability and peace to Afghanistan, the Senate chairman extended his support to the process on the condition that practical steps would be taken in this regard.
“Peace is the demand of the Afghans. We saw Mullah Omar’s Eid message. Those associated with Omar or other groups should afraid of God and show mercy to the Afghan nation.”
Nangarhar governor Salim Khan Kunduzi also urged the Taliban to shun violence and join the peace process.
“They should come and live in peace with their own people,” the governor said, claiming those fighting on behest of others would stop doing so soon.
