KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Some Shia tribal leaders on Friday called on conflicting parties to renounce violence, enter peace accord and asked the government to give them their due rights.

Leaders of the Shai sect from different provinces gathered in the Loya Jirgainfo-icon Tent today and vow not to remain silent about the future and not to allow anyone to decide their fate.

Presidential Advisor in Economic Affairs Serwas Alaf said Shia leaders from different parts of the country had gathered here with the purpose to form an organized movement and decide their future by their own.

He said it was important to facilitate the future generation so the government respect them and they could have active role in politics.

Syed Hassan Fazel, tribal elder and head of the gathering, said different tribes of Shia sect wanted to stay away from disappointment and get their political role in the government.

“This is not an ethnic, tribal or linguistic movement, adding that we want to free ourselves from ideological slavery,” he said.

Fazel added continued war in the country badly affected the image of Afghanistaninfo-icon abroad and daily tens of youth from both sides lost their lives.

Suhila Saif, deputy head of Shia Coordination Council from Kabul’s 6th police district, said a handful individuals played with their future and used them as tool for personal gains.

She said Shia people rendered huge sacrifices for the territorial integrity and defence of the country and they wanted to decide their future themselves.
