KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Demanding ceasefire before Eidul Fitr between government and Talibaninfo-icon forces, hundreds of Islamic scholars on Wednesday strongly condemned targeted killings of their counterparts.

The scholars holding a gathering in Kabul said the ongoing conflict in the country was killing only Afghans and urged ceasefire.

They said insecurity had recently increased and on both sides only Afghans lost their lives.

Maulviinfo-icon Gul Ahmad Seddiq Chakari, deputy head of Kabul Ulemainfo-icon Council, said besides security forces and Taliban militants, innocent Afghans were also losing their lives to the ongoing insurgency.

He expressed his deep concern over recently targeted killings of ulema and said they were not safe in any part of the county.

He demanded ceasefire between the government and the Taliban ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr.

Qadir Qanit, another Islamic scholar, also condemned killing of ulema and urged the government to investigate seriously attacks on Islamic scholars.

He said, “The aim of the ongoing conflict is yet to be known and its benefits others but Afghans are its victims.”

At the end of their meeting, the scholars issued a resolution letter that asked the warring parties to end the current war in the country as it was not in the interest of Islam.
