KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok):  The president’s special representative for reforms and good governance on Thursday asked jihadi leaders to join forces against the Talibaninfo-icon and defend their country.

Speaking at the 5th death anniversary of a former jihadiinfo-icon commander, Abdul Rahman Syedkheli, Ahmad Zia Massoud said if the mujahideeninfo-icon did not react to Taliban, they would be isolated.

”We have witnessed over the past 14 years, the Taliban could freely move to each city and areas of the country and they even have created their social networks in Kabul,” he said.

He said the Taliban invited people in schools, government departments and local institutions to join them and had even sent some of their youth for military training.

“They (Taliban) claim would get power and unfortunately our Mujahiddin and the Afghan people are politically dispersed and there is no complete coordination among them for the anti-terrorism fight,” he said.

“In order not to be killed, let’s be organised in the fight against international terrorism because you are the people who wield wide influence on the societyinfo-icon,” he addressed the former jihadis.

The international community and the High Peace Councilinfo-icon should consider the Mujahiddin of Afghanistaninfo-icon as party to the peace talks because they had resisted the Taliban who destroyed their orchards, houses and other properties, Massoud said.
