Daesh asked to wage jihad in non-Muslim states

Daesh asked to wage jihad in non-Muslim states

Apr 28, 2015 - 18:17

JALALABAD (Pajhwok): A senior peace negotiator and former jihidi commander on Tuesday said the ongoing war against Afghans was illegitimate, asking the self-styled Islamic State or Daesh group to wage its jihadinfo-icon in non-Muslim countries instead of Afghanistaninfo-icon.

Haji Malak Nazir, the High Peace Councilinfo-icon (HPC) chief for eastern Nangarhar province, was addressing a gathering marking the Mujahideeninfo-icon Victory Day in Jalalabad, the provincial capital.

Nazir said the Talibaninfo-icon reserved the right to wage a war because they had been ousted from government, but their fitwas for jihad in Afghanistan were un-Islamic.

“Now a new group Daesh has emerged, which claims to be the leader of Muslims. The group says let’s go to Afghanistan for jihad. If you want to do jihad, do it in the Europe where infidels live.”

The gathering was attended by a number of religious scholars and former jihadiinfo-icon leaders. They called for the peace process to be intensified and changes brought to the HPC’s composition.

Religious scholar and former jihadi leader Maulviinfo-icon Arshad Ahmad said: “Changes should be made to the HPC’s composition because the current composition only spends money and cannot win peace due to their past.”

Ahmad talked about mujahideen’s sacrifices against the former Soviet Union forces and hoped efforts for peace would be intensified in Afghanistan.

Another former jihadi commander, Haji Ajab Khan, said the Afghans should jointly work for peace and stability of their country.

“Foreign intelligence networks have besieged Afghanistan to divide Afghans: O’ Afghans wake up and rescue your motherland from the atrocities of these networks.”

At the end of the gathering, senior security officials presented flowers to some individuals who lost limbs during the jihad against the Soviet forces and called them as Afghanistan’s heroes.
