Miscreants not loyal to Islam, homeland: Karzai

Miscreants not loyal to Islam, homeland: Karzai

Aug 23, 2012 - 21:49

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): President Hamid Karzai has said elements out to destroy the country, block its development and kill innocent people were not loyal to the homeland and Islam.

In a radio speech to the nation aired last night, the president said those destroying the country, killing people, burning and closing schools had no right to call themselves patriots.

He asked the rebels and their leaders that how would they face Afghans whose children, relatives and dear ones had been killed and maimed in attacks carried out in their name. He added the rebel leaders would not be able to confront people in villages, where their men had closed schools and deprived patients from access to healthinfo-icon services and new-born children from vaccines.

“The ongoing terrorist activities carried out by the Talibaninfo-icon or by others in their name are inhuman, un-Islamic and immoral,” said Karzai, who said bomb blasts and suicide attacks did not stop even during the holy month of Ramadaninfo-icon targeting marketplaces and mosques.

“These attacks in Uruzgan and Nangarhar on mosques, in Nimroz, Khost, Kunduz and other areas on bazaars left many common people dead and wounded during the holy month,” he added.

The worst attack was in Zaranj, the capital of southwestern Nimroz province, where 21 people were killed and more than 100 injured, including womeninfo-icon and children, said Karzai, who a day earlier travelled to the city to condole with families of those killed and wounded. The president said he brought some critically injured people with him to Kabul.
