KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok):  A key member of the Jamiat Ulemainfo-icon-i-Islam (JUI-S) led-by a famous Pakistani scholar Maulana Sami-ul-Haq, declared that they support Afghan Talibaninfo-icon and are proud of their role, a Pakistani newspaper reported.

While delivering his speech to Tahaffuz-i-Islam convention in Karak area, the JUI-S chief of Khyber Pakhtunknwa, Maulana Yousaf Shah, said the leaders of the party had always raised their voice against western powers.

According to Dawn news, he said the political parties like Pakistaninfo-icon Muslim League (Nawaz), Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) had no programme to provide protection to the religion and people. Other political parties could deceive the masses through slogans of secularism, socialism and communism, but had no programme for the welfare of people.

 “Very soon the religious forces would be united again for the security of Islam and against the western powers, “he said adding attacks on religious schools would not be tolerated and asked the people to support the religious parties.

Over the past 15 years, Afghan officials have repeatedly asked Pakistan to stop supporting Afghan Taliban in its territory, but Pakistan has denied the allegations.

Sami is considered as father of Afghan Taliban and is a key supporter of Taliban. He had several times issued Fatwainfo-icon to legalize war in Afghanistaninfo-icon.

Political analyst, Javed Ghafoor told Pajhwok Afghan News that Taliban has been supporting by religious parties and Pakistani intelligence. They have been trained and directed in the religious seminary of Maulana Sami-ul-Haq, to carry out disruptive activities in Afghanistan, he said.
