KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): President Ashraf Ghani on Saturday said those who targeted educational and cultural institutes were traitors and unaware about Islam.

Addressing an international Urban Symposium at the Presidential Palace, Ghani said attacks on universities, schools, mosques, hospitals, children and civilians were attacks on civilization, religion and dignity.

He said anyone accepting responsibility of such attacks were traitors and unaware about Islam.

He said ensuring peace in the country was a goal of the government. “No one has as strong intention for peace as we have, but violence is not the way for acceptance, when we are going to negotiations in the next few weeks, why kill civilians?” he asked.

Ghani added no one would surrender to someone else by force and oppressions and it was not an Afghan character to accept forced surrender.

A day earlier, eight people were killed and 33 others wounded in a suicide attack in front of Kabul University. The attack took place when an exam was scheduled for judicial officers and Kabul University Medical Council staff in Kabul University.

The president said billions of dollars poured into Afghanistaninfo-icon but urban centers turned into incuriosity instead becoming cities of life and movements. “In the future, the government, the Ministry of Urban Development and Land and municipalities would be held accountable.”

He said that an ensured property and planned areas were the need of every Afghan, stressing that plans for land management should be implemented.

He said half a million acres of land had been usurped in the country and those involved must be tried.

Ghani said 13,000 land grabbers were identified across the country. Those who had grabbed people’s lands would not be left unanswered and people’s rights would be return to them back, he said.

Acting urban development and land minister Mohammad Jawad Paikan, talking to the conference, said that 70 percent of Afghans still had no credible property documents. But he said there were programs in place for resolving the issue.

On the other hand, he said that efforts were on for recovering usurped lands from their grabbers.
