Spies within the regime be eliminated: Muslimyar

Spies within the regime be eliminated: Muslimyar

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Meshrano Jirgainfo-icon chairman Fazl Hadi Muslimyar on Tuesday said if veteran former jihadiinfo-icon leader Abdul Rab Rassoul Sayyaf was assassinated, the blame would be put on Maulviinfo-icon Qalamuddin and those working in the government but sympathetic to insurgents.

Speaking at Meshrano Jirga’s general session, Muslimyar said the silence over the “5th pillar” -- those within the government but want to weaken it -- was anguishing. “There are people who get everything from the government, but support those who kill Afghan people.”

Referring to recent remarks by Sayyaf, the Senate chairman said “security agencies, specially the spy service, are obliged to expose foreign spies within the government, otherwise this “5th pillar” will create more problems.”

Three days back, Sayyad had claimed that terrorist attacks in Afghanistaninfo-icon were being led by “centres” that were located in Kabul. “If we can’t eliminate the enemy from under our noses, we can never defeat them on the battlefield.”

Muslimyar said after Eid holidays, apart from security officials, National Security Advisor Mohammad Hanif Atmar would also be summoned to brief lawmakers about the “spies” within the government.

He said Maulvi Qalamuddin, the Inqelab-i-Islami movement head, and a member of the High Peace Councilinfo-icon, on the one hand received $2,000 salary from the government, and on the other warned Mujahiddin leaders.

Maulvi Qalamuddin had said had Sayyaf captured Talibaninfo-icon’s late supremo Mullahinfo-icon Omar, he would have killed him and if Taliban caught Sayyaf, they would behead him.

Muslimyar said if Ustad Sayyaf was killed, people like Qalamuddin and other insider spies were to be blamed since they supported those fighting against security forces.

“Ustad Sayyaf is a scholar and is involved in all matters. He has supporters in every province and if something like this happens to him, everyone will stand against these well-known spies,” he added.

Muslimyar said the government should take necessary steps for security in the eastern zone; otherwise local elders would start clearing operations against insurgents on their own.

Pajhwok Afghan News tried to have Maulvi Qalamuddin’s comments regarding Ustad Sayyaf’s remarks, but he said he did not want to start a media war.
