KABUL: First Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar Akhund, met with a number of Shia scholars, elders, and tribal elders, late on Sunday, a statement from the deputy prime minister said.
Attaullah Sadiq Shaghasi, head of the Society for Peace and Freedom, and Sayed Hassan Fazelzada, head of the Shia Ulama and Influential Association, spoke on behalf of others at the meeting, which was held at the Marmarin Palace.
Fazilzada spoke on peace, security, and self-determination, adding: “We have always supported the Islamic Emirate and we will continue to do so, and we condemn all actions and attempt which are weakening the current Islamic system,” according to the statement.
He stated the Islamic Emirate as the core of unity and solidarity among the tribes living in Afghanistan and said that the Ulama had always prevented any kind of insurgency and insecurity in the Shiite-populated areas.
Dr. Saddiq Shaghasi also said that the Bonn Conference was a document of the birth of occupation, ethnic and regional prejudices, and on the contrary, the Doha Agreement could be considered as a document of freedom, unity, and brotherhood among the nations.
He further added that former tribal dictators and other intelligence operatives who have maintained their interests in dividing nations are no longer working here.
They also shared their suggestions in writing with the Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs.
Welcoming the Shia religious figures, Deputy Prime Minister for Economic Affairs Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar Akhund said: “Afghanistan is the common home of all Afghans and working for its development is the common responsibility of all Afghans.”
The position of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is clear, he said. “Our door is open to every citizen of Afghanistan and the Islamic Emirate welcomes any Afghans wanted to serve their country and the people.
The deputy PM said that the welfare and economic stability of the people is one of the important programs and priorities for the government to improve the economic situation in the short term, provide employment to the people, and increase the national revenues.
