Kabul (BNA) High Peace Council sources say that a joint session of Afghan and Pakistani religious scholars would be held very soon
BNA religious affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes recently M. Omer Dawodzai the head of secretariat of high peace council and the envoy of the president for regional gatherings visited Pakistan to attract regional cooperation for the victory of peace process in Afghanistan and bringing Taliban to negotiation table.
The visit took place at highs of efforts for political solution of Afghan problem and Pakistan’s new commitments at that end. Close sources to peace high council have considered the results of Dawodzai’s trip to Islamabad and his meetings with political, religious and ethnical leaders of that country full of achievements.
One of the achievements is the agreement of Afghanistan and Pakistan on holding the joint session of the religious scholars of the two countries in near future.
Agreement on holding the joint session of religious scholars of the two countries could be a concrete step toward the solution of Afghan problem, because the current fighting has been imposed on Afghan people from the address of religion. This is, there were the seminaries and spiritual circles in Pakistan who called the fighting jihad while all other centers, organizations, religious and political parties and religious figures not considering the fighting Jihad but fratricide and called suicide attacks utterly illegal from Islamic point of view. Among these credible sources there were only Pakistani religious scholars who called the current war in Afghanistan against all Islamic values and standards jihad.
Although the religious scholars in Afghanistan, Indonesia and other places have called again and again Pakistani religious scholars reassess Afghan problem at light of religious instructions and reach a final decision for settling the problem of Afghan Muslim   people and to end their sufferings. Unfortunately, the answer of Pakistani scholars was negative. However the last agreement can be considered a good start.
The current war has been imposed on Afghan people from the address of religion. Most of the Taliban who are fighting against Afghan government have trained and came from Pakistani seminaries and have received Jihad incentive from there. Spiritual figures and religious parties are all strong supporters of Taliban and remained as financial and recruiting sources for them so far. 
Religious circles in mosques, seminaries and religious gatherings openly supporting Taliban still call the barbaric fighting in Afghanistan Jihad.
As the Afghan people sustain most of the suffering from this so called jihad welcome any move for peace.  How much it be better for settling Afghan problem to reach a single view and act as real Muslim and put aside all other differences, egoisms and self – interests,
Our people welcome the recent agreement and consider it useful for bringing together and friendship   the people of the two countries. We have not encouraged too much from the agreement, we expect Pakistan to take practical steps in that end.
