RCN wants suspension of Pakistan backed talks

Aug 17, 2015 - 17:04

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Condemning Pakistaninfo-icon’s policy toward Afghanistaninfo-icon, the Reform and Change Network (RCN) on Monday demanded the government to forthwith suspend peace talks with Talibaninfo-icon.

Dozens of members of the RCN drove around Kabul city in 12 vehicles, alleging that Pakistan’s interferences in Afghanistan’s affairs was a source of instability.

The activists chanted: “Pakistan is a murderer and Pakistan is thirsty for our blood,” and “Our people die of hunger and America is silent.”

They also criticized government’s policies towards Pakistan and urged greater unity for all Afghans.

Sayed Maisam Ehsani, a member of the network, said their one-day campaign was aimed at expressing their anger and hate towards Pakistan.

He said they were planning to hold such campaigns in different parts of Kabul to become united against Pakistan. “Crimes of Pakistan have increased, the peace talks have failed and differences between government leaders have put aside some major national issues.”

He voiced concerns regarding Afghanistan’s nose-diving economy and rise in insurgents’ attacks. He blamed Pakistan’s interferences for rise in instability in Afghanistan.

Ehsani urged the National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) to disclose identity of those who were plotting attacks in Afghanistan and award them capital punishment so that it should be a lesson for the others.

He said a five-day national mourning should be announced for the victims of recent attacks in Kabul. “Pakistan cannot reach to its goals alone without some people’s help from inside our system.”

He also criticized international community. “We strongly condemn the US and NATOinfo-icon’s stance towards Pakistan and consider it a double game. The money given to Pakistan by the US and the UK goes to terrorism and this shows they have indirect hand in supporting terror.”

Zahir Mahboob, another member of the network, said: “Pakistan’s military sends gifts of suicide bombers with the help of domestic spies. Identity of these spies should be made public.”
