SHIBERGHAN (Pajhwok): More than 3,000 protestors on Saturday rallied against Pakistaninfo-icon’s anti-Afghanistaninfo-icon policy in Sheberghan, the capital of northern Jawzjan province.

“If Pakistan continues supporting terrorists, I’m ready to take up arms and stand by my brothers in defending the country,” declared Zulal, a woman participant of the protest.

Womeninfo-icon were proud of their brothers in the security forces defending their homeland, she said, alleging: “Pakistan is arming the insurgents who destablise our country by attacking our educational and cultural facilities.”

Chanting “death to Pakistan and Pakistan must bring change to its policy”, the protestors warned of dire consequences if Islamabad continued with its vicious policy toward Afghanistan.

The demonstrators also issued a statement in support of the first vice-president’s call for severing relations with Pakistan.Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostumspent the past three weeks in Faryab province, where he blamed Pakistani generals for leading the fight there.

Kinja Kargar,addressing the rally, warned: “Pakistani generals should understand that Afghanistan has valiant youth and military officers who would defend their country to the last drop of their blood.”

Last week Gen. Dostum claimed a Pakistani general had died in Faryab clashes, and today security officials said four insurgents, including two Uzbekistani nationals and a Pakistani citizen, were killed in Qaisar district clashes.

Pakistan has repeatedly denied interference in Afghanistan’s internal matters, assuring support for the peace process.
