Kabul (BNA)  After the collapse of Taliban regime in the country, the Afghan government tirelessly endeavored to maintain security and convey peace and stability to the war suffered Afghan nation.
The government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan initiated the peace and reconciliation process aimed to invite the disgruntled Taliban`s to lay down arms, sever ties with Al-Qaeda and other terrorist groups, obey the Afghan constitution and join  the national mainstream to participate in the renovation and rehabilitation  process of their great motherland Afghanistan.
To some extent the government oppositions joined the national reconciliation process but many others by conducting suicide attacks and killing of innocent civilians created hatred and anger among the people. The mission wasn’t easy for the Afghan government as it appeared because the government was countering various troubles and threats. Fighting terrorism. Extremism, meddling of foreigners in Afghanistan internal affairs, corruption and applying reforms and modernization of Afghanistan various institutions was government priorities. Beside many obstructions the government productively executed its programs based on the Afghan constitution. Response given by the Taliban through suicide attacks and killing of innocent civilian’s influential, elders and other high ranking government officials is intolerable and unjustifiable for the Afghan nation and at the meantime is against the principles of the holy religion of Islam and humanity.
There is no justification of conducting such acts in Islamic and values, the one who obeys the rules and regulations of the holy religion don’t believe to commit such brazen and inhuman assault and crime.
The fact is that the Afghan nation has given many sacrifices for bringing the lasting peace and stability to the country, Afghanistan has been suffering various tragedies and calamities over the last three and half decades.
What seems more important over the last one decade is the occurrence of suicide bombing which left injuries, civilian casualties. It is more dreadful that most of these inhumane and cruel attacks are carried out inside the mosques, public places ad bazaars.
Killing of people and human is forbidden in Islam. Last year the grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Abdullah delivered a Haj sermon where he declared suicide attacks against Islam and stressed that those who commit such attacks would definitely be not forgiven. The Mufti called upon the Muslim community to follow teaching of Islam to promote peace and brotherhood. In his Haj sermon, he said Islam taught patience and tolerance and abhorred all types’ of violence in the society. He further added that there was no association between terrorism and Islam and said it was the prime responsibility of the Muslims not to harm anyone on the bases of casts, creed and religion.

Kabul (BNA) Claiming increase in saffron cultivation in Afghanistan, the agriculture minister said more than four tones of saffron were exported last year.
Mohammad Asif Rahimi said that efforts made to promote the plant production had been successful so far. Under a long term programs, the minister said farmers in other provinces were sent to western Herat, where highest level of saffron is cultivated, to practically learn growing techniques before they were handed saffron bulbs. Farmers cultivate saffron bulbs in late August and reap the purple flowers in mid-October. The red filaments of saffron- the aromatic thread-like substances globally used for a variety of purposes, including herbal medicine, color dyes, perfume and food seasoning- are then collected from each flower by hand, often by women at home.
Deemed as viable alternative to puppy, Rahimi said farmers in most of provinces had been introduced to the plant and pilot projects had been successful in 20 provinces. Saffron produced in Afghanistan is identified as one of the world’s best, the minister said; adding more than four tones of saffron were directly exported to the US, Germany, the UK and other countries last year. Afghanistan Saffron Growers Association head Bashir Ahmad Rashidi said farmers warmly welcomed saffron cultivation because it was highly profitable and compatible with the climate and soil and its cultivation did not require highly advanced irrigation. He said three tons of saffron was exported to foreign countries from Herat alone last year, when five tons of saffron bulbs were distributed to farmers across the country.
Rashidi has no figures for land on which saffron was cultivated last year in provinces, but said 3,250 jirbs of land was specified for it in Herat. Abdul Gaffar Hamidzai, director of Afghanistan’s largest saffron company in Herat, said that the company exported 500 kilograms of saffron last year. He said there had been 120kg increase in exports last year, compared to 2011. It was exported to the US, Germany, Italy and Spain making $1600 per kg, he added.
