Taliban visit Indonesia in March, agree to peace: Source

JAKARTA (Pajhwok): A Talibaninfo-icon delegation visited Indonesia in March and agreed to joining the Afghanistaninfo-icon peace process after their concerns about a possible fatwainfo-icon against them at the Trilateral Ulemainfo-icon Conference at Bogor Palace were removed, a source in Jakarta said on Friday.

The conference kicked off on Friday with opening remarks of the Indonesian president who called the meeting as part of Indonesia's commitment to promote the ulemas' role [in creating peace].

A source in Jakarta told Pajhwok that no one from the Taliban were in attendance at the ulema conference. However, the source said a Taliban delegation arrived in Indonesia in March and expressed concern about a possible fatwa against them at the uelma conference.

After their concerns were removed the Taliban said they were ready to join the Afghanistan peace process.

A source at the Afghanistan High Peace Councilinfo-icon said the Pakistani ulema had never issued fatawa to declare jihadinfo-icon as illegitimate in Afghanistan and they expected nothing as such from the Pakistanis in future.

He said the Afghan ulema should themselves resolve the conflict.

Afghan scholars are trying to issue fatwa against suicide attacks in Afghanistan until the 10th of Ramadaninfo-icon and a follow up joint fatwa in this regard is expected from 300 to 500 ulema of Afghanistan and Pakistaninfo-icon before a joint stance is adopted by scholars at the international ulema conference in July.
