Kabul (BNA) Peace is the demand of Afghan people, therefore no any group and circle cannot monopolize it.
BNA political analyst commenting on the issue writes observing ceasefire by Taliban during Eid days and the massive presence of them in cities among them Kabul indicate that peace process has its sympathizers among Taliban and ensuring peace and stability in the country is the demand of the majority members of the group.
The members of Taliban who came to the cities and met their families, relatives and friends unanimously talked about peace and called restoration of stability in to county as an urgent need. The presence of Taliban in cities and warm welcoming of the citizens and security forces clearly demonstrated that the ongoing war in Afghanistan is not a civil war but it is the Afghans who have become the victims of evil political games of foreigners. Conducting interviews they implicitly talked about the objectives and programs of hostile countries to create discord among Afghan people and keep the war in flame as before, while Afghans learning from the bitter experiences just think and act for ensuring peace and ending this bloody war in their country. The Afghan government considering the desires and demands of people decided to extend the ceasefire. The move warmly welcomed by all peace loving Afghan people and supported by United Nations and other credible world organizations.
Unfortunately, a man named Zabihullah Mujahid and introduces himself as the spokesman of Taliban lives in Karachi issuing a statement has said to the media that their so called Jihad is continuing against Afghan government the ceasefire has ended at the end of third day of Eid.
The statement is contrary to words of Taliban who came to the cities and expressed their pains and agonies from war and their will and desires for restoration of peace and stability in to the country. The people who expressed their hatred against war, terror and suicide were Taliban who fought for the interests of the leadership of the group, their sons were killed and their homes and farmlands destroyed while the Taliban leaders like Zabihullah Mujahid ignoring all their sacrifices insist on continuation of war live in luxury with their families and enjoy all facilities in big cities of Pakistan or Gulf countries at the cost of rural Afghan Taliban. The situation indicates that there are gross differences among low, meddle ranks of Taliban and their leadership. This discrimination will soon separate the way of rural Taliban from their leaders.
