Paktika public reps urge govt to choose peace over war

Paktika public reps urge govt to choose peace over war

Nov 29, 2015 - 13:39

SHARAN (Pajhwok): Public representatives from southeastern Paktika province on Sunday asked the national unity government to accord top priority to peace instead of war.

The government should accelerate the peace process instead of stepping up the war in the country, a member of the provincial council, Mobin Faqirzada, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

“Our nation has been in flames of war for the past few decades when the Afghans were used as fuel to the fire. Afghans are being killed by Afghans; there is a need for peace in the country,” he said.

He called on religious scholars to propagate peace at the village level and asked militants to stop fighting. All parties should choose peace for the prosperous future of the country, the official added.

The war in Afghanistaninfo-icon was being fuelled by outsiders in their own interest, alleged a resident of Janikhel district, Gul Mohammad, who asked militants to shun killing their own brothers.

Most of Paktika residents were ready to support the government in bringing peace to the country, he claimed.

Meanwhile, Governor Aminulllah Shariq said the government had been trying to bring peace to the country. He urged religious scholars, tribal elders and other influential figures to help achieve the goal of peace.

“We have to work jointly for peace as it is our Islamic and social responsibility,” he argued, calling for solid national unity against terrorists.
