KABUL: Second Vice-President Mohammad Sarwar Danesh called peace only a ‘mirage’ for the warmonger Taliban, as they have recently intensified war and violence in the country, said a statement from his office Wednesday.
“Unprecedentedly continuation of war and violence by the Taliban indicates that peace they claim is only a mirage,” said Danesh in a meeting held to open the Journalists and Media Workers Support National Fund at the Government Media and Information Center (GIMC).
He said the militants misuse the slogan of peace but they don’t believe in it even have no commitment to the peace agreement they signed with the US. They want to monopoly power through war and don’t believe to any peaceful and political solution and justice-based power share in the country, the statement quoted him as saying.
“The ongoing war is illegitimate and completely contrary to the Islamic teachings,” said the vice-president adding the militants didn’t show any attention to the world Islamic Ulama’s fatwa on the ongoing war in Afghanistan.
Touching on the Taliban recent assertions that the militants said Afghanistan was the common house of the Afghans including Shiite and Sunni Muslims, Danesh said no one would be deceived by the Taliban remarks expect those who have not witnessed their black past.
“The Taliban militants are setting on fire the houses of the poor local people and farmers in Dykundi province everyday and forced the people to leave their residence and we in the past have seen that how Emarate was the common house of the people and that they were the Taliban who launched mass murder in Mazar-e-Sharif, Yakawlang and Bamyan province,” the vice-president reminded.
He said in Mazar-e-Sharif the militants shouted that Tajik should leave for Tajikistan, Uzbek to Uzbekistan and Hazara to Qabrestan (the graveyard) and warned that the militants would never reach power and overrule the fate of the people through war and violence.
