Kabul (BNA) The members of Public Movement for peace who want to share their thoughts and views for peace and restoration of stability with people humiliated by Taliban in Baghlan province.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes a few months ago the stadium of Lashkergah city became the target of a terrorist attack which martyred a number of our compatriots. Following to this tragic incident, a number of the citizens of that city erecting sitting in tents asked for enforcement of ceasefire between state and armed opposition’s forces to establish an atmosphere of trust between the parties and provide the ground for the commencement of peace negotiation in the country. 
The Helmand peace movement warmly welcomed by the people and not only the people who lived along the road the caravan passing joined them, but our compatriots from Peshawar, Badakhshan, Herat, Faryab, Kunar came to Kabul to support the Helmandis  peace movement which gives the message that peace in the demand of every Afghan.
In Kabul, another development occurred in the peace movement caravan where the participants decided to continue their trip by bare foot to Mazar –I – Sharif again aiming to share the idea of peace with people. Along the way, they warmly welcomed by the people that facilitate the difficulties of trip for them.
However, reaching Dand- i- Ghory district Baghlan province the humiliated by Taliban, because Taliban calling this public movement an American program, inserted other illegal accusations addressing the caravan.
This act of Taliban is regrettable, because, the meet the Americans in Qatar and Pakistan and say yes to the Russians’ demand for attending Moscow’s  peace negotiations, but scorn and humiliate the Afghans who as the messengers of peace want bring the Afghan as brothers together and end fighting in the country.
This indicates that how much Taliban are depended to the foreigners and how much they endeavor; in order the foreign players have a high hand in Afghan problem.
Taliban insulting the caravan of peace, who want to dissimilate the peace idea among their people, explicitly presented their animosity to peace loving of our people and friendship to their foreign masters.

Kabul (BNA) BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes recently a number of western media disclosed that certain circles in Netherland holding an exhibition and cartoon competition, the theme of which was the sacred of Islam. Unfortunately, in this anti- Islamic and anti- human campaign the high authorities and figures were also involved.
What have been planned in Netherland under the name of so called exhibition has been taking place in continuation of efforts early made by extremist circles in US, France, Denmark and Norway, or   burning of Holy Quran or drawn the cartoons which humiliated and scorned the sacred of Islam, or prepared films and dramas about figures and personalities of early Islam. All the facts mentioned above clearly show that extremism is also growing in western societies and America. This also shows that extremism is almost followed by every faith, religion and exists in every country. Even those who are mercilessly killing people in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq affiliated to the intelligent services of foreign countries or actively working to defame Islam.
What has been launched under the name of cartoon exhibition, is aiming to defame the figures and personalities of early Islam indicates that extremism is not an Islamic phenomenon but closely ties with other societies and communities.
The matter is clear for awakened conscience, if Taliban, IS or Al- Qaida emerged in Islamic societies, there is extremist activities in Netherland, US, Paris, Norway and all over Europe against Muslims that can be used as an incentive. If these groups fight under the name of Islam, isn’t genocide of Muslims in Myanmar extremism.
Regretfully, the authorities of European, American and some other countries of the world had scared their citizens from Islamic extremism but are silent against extremism in their own countries that have wounded the hearts of millions of people across the world.
It should not be forgotten that every anti – Islamic move will be an incentive, not only hurt the hearts of Muslims across the world also give a pretext for extremist groups in Islamic World to justify their heinous crimes against humanity.
The incidents of some years ago in Paris after releasing an anti- Islamic cartoon in a magazine in Paris cost the lives of many innocent citizens of that city, the citizens of Belgium and other countries became the victims of such adventures.
Therefore it would be better the westerners and Americans define democracy within the values of humanism and respect the rights of others. It would be so good that the Americans and the west do not equalize expression and civil freedom with terrorizing figures, as the call Taliban, IS and Al-Qaeda they also should pay attention on extremist groups in their own countries who with adventurous actions provide the ground for confrontation of various faith which without doubt cause huge destructions and casualties in the world.

Kabul (BNA) Moscow session due to be held on September 4 by Russia aiming to discuss Afghan crisis suspended and Russia committed, the session to be held in other time with pivotal role of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes Russia aiming the Afghan crisis to be discussed planned to hold a session in Moscow city on September 4. In addition to Afghanistan five other countries including India, Pakistan, US and Taliban have been invited to participate in the session.
US arguing that Moscow session like previous sessions will not lead to any positive results on improvement of situation in Afghanistan denied attending the session. Islamic Republic of Afghanistan considering the participation of Taliban in the session meaningless declared that it would not in the session. Naturally, without the participation of the representative of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, any decisions by the session will not be acceptable for Afghan government.
While Islamic Republic of Afghanistan has previously welcomed the efforts of Russian Federation for resolving Afghan crisis and repeatedly insisted that overcoming the current problem needs regional and beyond regional consensus and any session without considering the will of Afghan people and absence of Afghan delegate would not be valid.
Russian authorities who designed and planned Moscow session in September 4, earlier also planned and organized similar sessions on Afghanistan problem, but this time, clearly observed that without participation of the representative of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan there would be no any hope for the success of Moscow session. The other countries that hosted the representatives of Taliban or met the delegates of the group in Qatar should know that the key party for solution of Afghan problem is its people and government who want and wish peace within the framework of any political peace negotiation to be restored with dignity not through dictated recommendations.   
Afghan people insist that peace negotiations are  inter - Afghan talks and the process should be led by Afghans, therefore anyone who honestly wants the solution of the problem should deeply consider that fact.
Afghan people and government welcome the initiatives of friendly countries that made for facilitating peace negotiations between Afghan parties but management and leadership of the process should be carried out by Afghans.
The new developments in Moscow efforts is  another  experience for armed oppositions, they have no way for the solution of the problem but to refer to Afghan people and inter- Afghan negotiations that guarantees peace restoration in the country, because Afghans know each other than the foreigners  and  can better plan for accessing peace and ensuring national interest. Because, this is the Afghans who feel the agonies and suffering of this nation than the others, while the foreigners in any peace process, pursuit and think about their own interests.
Therefore, it is the obligation of both Afghan government and armed oppositions to work together to end this war launched and led by aliens.

Kabul (BNA) One can guess the complexity of imposed war on Afghanistan from the sessions held in various countries in pretext of peace.
BNA political affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes the meetings and negotiations on Afghanistan just produce result when they free from any political conspiracy and be focused on restoring peace and meet the will and aspirations of Afghan people.
The Afghan people since a long time have been witnessing of holding tripartite and quadripartite sessions in this or that country, the national and international session that brought no any results so far.
However, the only hope for settling the problem is Kabul’s process sessions. The authorities of Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in the process asked for holding direct talks with armed oppositions, believing that it can lead to solve the problem, since then many countries interred in to direct talks with Taliban. The matter could be considered from two dimensions:
First, the government of Afghanistan made its best to disseminate the culture of peace and to prevent extremism which had some achievements. Secondly the countries involved in Afghan war using the opportunity want to achieve their own objectives.
This open fact clearly displays the complexity of war in Afghanistan and various dimensions of this regional dispute.
For this reason the Afghan people know that the continuation of war in to the benefit of regional players. The Afghan people should know that they are capable to restore peace in the country. This noble aim could be achieved only when all Afghan people say no to all kinds of discriminations including ethnical, linguistic and political prejudices, building a strong national unity rescue the country from the hands of regional players. 
The majority of people not considers holding numerous sessions the way of settling the problem and argues that it will increase regional rivalries and  in situation where political differences prevail, establishing coalitions is common create a wide gape that prevent the people to access peace and enjoy it.
