Former spymaster launches NGO named Omaid-i-Saba

Former spymaster launches NGO named Omaid-i-Saba

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Omaid-I-Saba, a nongovernmental organisation led by an ex-spymaster, was launched in Kabul on Thursday.

Asadullah Kahlid, who announced the NGO’s creation at a conference here, stressed the need for national unity and transparency in upcoming elections.

“We won’t let the country plunge into crises,” the former National Directorate of Security (NDSinfo-icon) head promised. “We want an inclusive peace for all Afghans.”

He accused the government of giving failed to improving security, branding the president and his team as incompetent. He claimed the government was fuelling tribal differences.

“Security in the country is worsening with each passing day and differences among different ethnic groups have reached their peak. We would not let anyone damage our unity,” he said.

While coming down hard on the incumbent rulers, Khalid blasted the government for inaugurating one project multiple times to deceive the public.

He questioned voter registration statistics, saying: “I believe voters around 2 million people have been left out of the voter registration process.”

The Independent Election Commission (IECinfo-icon) recently announced that more than nine million people had been registered as voters.

The former NDS chief said Omaid-i-Saba -- an independent organisation --was created on public demand. It would support a presidential hopeful having an effective plan for dealing with problems in the country.

Last week, the Grand National Coalition of Afghanistaninfo-icon also announced its existence. First vice-president and head of Junbish-I-Islami Afghanistan, Gen. Abdul Rashid Dostum, head of Jamiat-I-Islamiinfo-icon Afghanistan, Salahuddin Rabbani, former Balkh governor Atta Mohammad Noor and others are members of the coalition.
