Joint press conference of Afghanistan's civil society organizations, trible shuras, and political and social activists for condemnation of terrorist attacks on educational, academic and religious centres

Throughout the history, enemies of Afghanistaninfo-icon, with the support of their proxies, have tried to prevent access of Afghan youth to learning and educationinfo-icon in order to destroy present as well as future of Afghan public. Currently, schools, serving Afghan youth, have been closed or demolished due to being set on fire in a number of areas. We declare this as an act that is against the basic spirit of Islam, humanity and Afghan culture. This group of Afghan civil societyinfo-icon while condemning the recent terrorist incident has below demands:

1. The recent incidents reveal that enemies of Afghanistan do not respect any human and Islamic principles. They have been targeting mosques, madrasas (religious schools), schools and universities. Whoever hampers Afghan youth's access to education, conducts terrorist attacks on schools, madrasas, universities and academic institutions and kill our university and school students as well as target academic cadre, we believe, are enemies of development of Afghanistan.

2. This is the responsibility of Afghan Government to ensure security of educational institutes and make an effort to re-open closed schools. The burnt schools must be renovated and students should be offered educational opportunities. We cannot tolerate establishment of schools, madrasas and universities organized by our neighbouring countries in pursuance of their political interests while in the meantime we support establishment of educational institutes of international standards in all parts of the country as such institutions can ensure prosperous future of Afghanistan.

3. We also request all Afghans, particularly school and university student s and teachers as well as academicians, to continue their efforts towards learning ensuring that enemies of Afghanistan are prevented from reaching their objectives. The enemy wants you to given up on gaining knowledge; therefore, it is essential to continue your educational activities and as such disallow the enemy from reaching its objectives.

4. We call upon international community that if there is desire to support Afghanistan substantially investment should be made in educational system of Afghanistan which will enable Afghan youth to stand up against radical and terrorist groups .

5. We also want to inform the insurgent groups, regional intelligence agencies and terrorist groups that Afghans understand and recognize your conspiracies. Hence, your effort and conspiracies will no more affect Afghan Nation. your terrorist acts will not hinder our quest for knowledge.
