Pakistan’s intelligence agency behind Nakamura’s killing: Senate

Pakistan’s intelligence agency behind Nakamura’s killing: Senate

Dec 08, 2019 - 20:15

KABL (Pajhwok): Some members of Meshrano Jirgainfo-icon or upper house of parliament on Sunday accused the Pakistaninfo-icon’s Inter-Services Intelligence (ISIinfo-icon) over the killing of Japanese physician Tetsu Nakamura, who was gunned down with five Afghans in a roadside shooting a few days back in eastern Nangarhar province.

The upper house also reaffirmed its support the peace process and said the peace negotiations should be held between Afghan government and the Talibaninfo-icon.

Unknown gunmen opened fire at the vehicle of the Peace Japan Medical Services (PMS) chief, who was rushed to a local hospital. The NGO chief came under attack on his way to inspect a project.

Dr. Nakamura did a lot of works for development of agriculture, irrigation, healthcare and education and won people’s hearts. His services to the people earned him the nickname ''Uncle Murad."

From the past few days hundreds of social media posts expressed sorrow and outrage over the attack that killed the 73-year-old physician who had been in Afghanistaninfo-icon since 2008.

Dr. Nakamura has recently received the Afghan citizenship from President Ashraf Ghani for his agricultureinfo-icon and rehabilitation works he carried out in Nangarhar province.

In today’s session, members of the Meshrano Jirga have strongly condemned the Dr. Nakamura’s assassination and accused the Pakistani ISI for killing Dr. Nakamura.

Lawmaker Fawzia Sadaat said that not only Nangarhar residents are in deep shock but the entire nation is sad over the loss of Nakamura because Afghanistan lost a real servant indeed.

She said, “Kaka Murad (Dr. Nakamura) was killed by the Pakistani intelligence (ISI) through a few sold Afghans because Pakistan never wants to see that Afghanistan control its water.”

She thanked the President Ghani as he carried out Dr. Nakamura’s body by his shoulders to the aircraft.

AnarKali Honaryar, another lawmaker, who was crying said: “Unfortunately Afghanistan lost today another real hero and servant, our enemies did not tolerate him who did a lot for Afghanistan and she demanded the execution of perpetrators.

Fazal Hadi Muslimyar, Meshrano Jirga speaker, has also condemned the killing of Dr. Nakamura along with his Afghans bodyguards and termed him as hidden soldier and a servant of Afghanistan who served for Afghanistan in a huge capacity.

He said Dr. Nakamura was killed for diverting Kunar River which made famous in social media.

He urged the Nangarhar security and defence forces to arrest Dr. Nakamura’s killers.

Mohammad Akbari, another lawmaker, said that peace is the demand of each Afghan and all Afghan want an end to the ongoing conflict bloodshed.

The United States and Taliban resumed peace talks in Doha on last Saturday -- almost two months after President Donald Trump abruptly halted the process.

"The focus of discussions will be a reduction of violence that leads to intra-Afghan negotiations and a ceasefire," a credible source confided to Pajhwok Afghan News.

Two days back, US special envoy Zalmay Khalilzad paid a two-day visit to Kabulinfo-icon where he held talks with top government officials and prominent politicians, including former president Hamid Karzai.

Earlier in the week, the US State Department said Khalilzad would rejoin talks with the Taliban on steps that could pave the way for intra-Afghan parleys and a peaceful settlement to the conflict.

Akbari said, “Only Afghan-owned and Afghan-led Peace process could guide us to a lasting process in the county.”

Rahmatullah Achkzai, another senator, has expressed happiness over the resumption of peace talks between US and Taliban in Qatar but cautioned that direct Afghan government and Taliban talks will yield more positive results.

Muslimyar said that the senate has a clear vision about the peace process and sporting the peace talks both in inside the country and aboard.

He also called for an intra-Afghan dialogue and said we will not support the US-Taliban peace talks details of negotiation not shared with Afghan government and its leadership.
