Massoud asks ex-jihadis to join forces against Taliban
”We have witnessed over the past 14 years, the Taliban could freely move to each city and areas of the country and they even have created their social networks in Kabul,” he said.
He said the Taliban invited people in schools, government departments and local institutions to join them and had even sent some of their youth for military training.
“They (Taliban) claim would get power and unfortunately our Mujahiddin and the Afghan people are politically dispersed and there is no complete coordination among them for the anti-terrorism fight,” he said.
“In order not to be killed, let’s be organised in the fight against international terrorism because you are the people who wield wide influence on the society,” he addressed the former jihadis.
The international community and the High Peace Council should consider the Mujahiddin of Afghanistan as party to the peace talks because they had resisted the Taliban who destroyed their orchards, houses and other properties, Massoud said.
