Mobilise masses against enemy, Sayyaf tells govt
Addressing the 14th death anniversary of Ahmad Shah Massoud in Kabul, Sayyaf asked the Afghans to be ready for the defence of the honour and history of their country: “if the plots of the enemies continued, the government should mobilise the people, otherwise we will mobilise them.”
While warning neighbours, he said, these countries should realise their safety was in a safe Afghanistan and if they intended something else, they would be defeated.
“If Afghanistan is controlled by Afghans, it will have no bad impact on, but if it falls into the hands of terrorists, the world should suffer. The world would be safe if there is a stable Afghanistan,” he remarked.
“We are not violators of human rights, the people who are calling mujahiddin as human rights violators, they are mistaken. We are conquerors and did nothing against human rights,” he said.
The religious scholar said the establishment of an armed party and groups in an Islamic country was illegal, calling the Taliban neither Afghans nor Muslims.
He said the Taliban were created during Burhanuddin Rabbani’s government and they pledged allegiance to Mullah Omer in the presence of an Islamic leader which was against Islam.
He suggested if the government leaders could not hold parliamentary election in the current situation, they should convene Loya Jirga, which had always resolved the country’s problems.
