Sep 22, 2020 - 16:13

KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Some Mesharano Jirgainfo-icon members on Tuesday termed Second Vice President Sarwar Danish’s comment about Emirate and Monarchy as a disgrace and based on outside agenda to spread divisions among different Afghan ethnic groups.

Gulalai Noor Safi, a lawmaker from Balkh province, said: “Danish comment is part of outsiders’ agenda to widen divisions among different ethnic groups in Afghanistaninfo-icon.”

She demanded an apology from Danish after his remarks regarding the great Ahmad Shah Baba that hurt the sentiments of many people.

Lawmaker Fawzia Sadaat Chamkani held similar views and added the remarks of the second vice president would create hatred among ethnic communities.

She said President Ashraf Ghani should not allow Danish to deliver such insulting remarks.

Lawmaker Ghairat Baheer without naming any individual said officials should be careful in their remarks and should not speak irresponsibly that could hamper peace process.

Senate Chairman Fazal Hadi Muslimyar said the second vice president should provide explanation regarding his controversial comments, adding that members of the house should react in a way that the peace process was not hurt.

Earlier commenting on Talibaninfo-icon’s Emirate, Danish said: “The Taliban regime was not different in spirit and content from the Sadozai and Mohammadzai kingdoms that ruled Afghanistan for more than 230 years.”

According to him, in the same regimes, a small group of tribes ruled Afghanistan by inheritance and dictatorship, while in the emirate system, the fate of a nation was held captive without a constitution. The emirate system was unlimited and absolutely above the law.

Ahmad Shah Baba (c. 1722 – 4 June 1772) also known as Ahmad KhānAbdālī (was the founder of the Durrani Empire and is regarded as the founder of the modern state of Afghanistan. In July 1747, Ahmad Shah was appointed as the King of Afghanistan by a loyajirga in Kandahar, where he set up his capital and assisted by a council of nine advisers from various Afghan tribes.
