KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Khost governor Hukam Khan Habibi and lawmaker Humanyun Humanyun exchanged harsh words over the missing of Abdul Jabbar Qahraman’s picture from a fateha ceremony here on Wednesday, witnesses said.

The fateha service was organized for the departed souls of former Kandahar police chief Gen. Abdul Raziq, Kandahar intelligence chief Gen. Momin and Jabbar Qahraman at the governor’s house in Khost City, the provincial capital.

Eyewitnesses said when lawmaker from Khost Wolesi Jirgainfo-icon’s second deputy speaker Humayun Humayun arrived at the event, he complained about the missing of Qahraman’s picture from the banners that carried Gen. Raziq and Momin’s photos.

One witness told Pajhwok that a furious Humayun tore town one of the banner as he entered a verbal clash with the governor. Later all banners were removed from the walls.

A video clip that went viral on social media shows Governor Hukam Khan as telling Humayun: “Qahraman will be Qahraman (hero) for you, not for us.”

Later Humayun said his aim was that the people of Helmand would mind the missing of Qahraman photo from the event.

However, secretary to the Khost governor, said the fateha session was held for Gen. Raziq and Momin and that was why there was no photo of Qahraman.

Meanwhile, the governor’s house issued a statement and said whatever showed on the social media about a verbal clash between Governor Hukam Khan and MP Humayun was wrongly portrayed.

The statement said: “The fact is that the fateha service was organized on the insistence of the governor to pay respect to Gen. Raziq and other national heroes.”

It said a large number of government officials, politicians, tribal elders, religious scholars and the youth took part in the servince.

Humanyun also attended the feteha and reacted to the writing of names of other martyrs with the name of Gen. Raziq on the welcoming banner.

The statement said the lawmaker tore down the banner from the wall and his act led to a verbal clash with the governor.
