KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Responding to a bomb attack on a peace advocacy meeting in central Logar province, President Ashraf Ghani on Thursday said peace had now turned into a public and national demand and anyone stood against it would end up “failed and ashamed”.

Eight people including a pregnant woman were killed and another four injured when a bomb went off near a meeting of youth and elders in Charkh district of Logar province on Thursday.

A statement from the Presidential Palace to Pajhwok Afghan News said the enemies of peace and brotherhood carried out a terrorist attack on peace advocators in Charkh district and caused casualties to many civilians.

The statement quoted President Ghani as saying the country was in a sensitive phase because the Afghan societyinfo-icon was fighting waves of mischief, revolt and division.

He said the peace activists were pushing the society towards coexistence, brotherhood and unity as per directions from ulemainfo-icon.

He said the enemies of Afghanistaninfo-icon peace and stability feared such movements and they were trying to create problems for the peace activists.

Ghani termed the killing of peace advocators a big loss and expressed his deep sorrow over the terrorist attack. “Peace has now turned into a basic demand of the whole nation and it has become a public and national will, anyone who stands against this national will is failed and ashamed,” he said.

He directed the government organs concerned to investigate the incident and provide all needed medical treatment to the wounded.

The president offered his condolences to the bereaved families and prayed for early recovery of those injured.
