Kabul (BNA) The message says that I was informed with regret the death of Alhaj Mohammad Zahir Zaki member of the Ulama Council and Peace Council of Bamyan.
Late Zaki was a great religious personality who has passed his life in serving the sacred aspirations of the people and further growth of culture and Islamic education.
He participated as an active personality in the Jehad of Hezbi Wahdat Islami of Afghanistan and Resistance and he continued serving his people during the reconstruction era and this way he got the respect of the people of the country.
His death is a loss among the religious ulama of Bamyan province.
Therefore I convey my deep sympathies to the noble people of Bamyan, the ulama and students of religious Madrassas of the province and his bereaved family members.
Kabul (BNA) The process of peace negotiation in Afghanistan is a national process and its management is one of the obligations of Afghan people.
BNA social affairs analyst writes: restoring peace and stability in to the country has been an urgent need of Afghan community for a long time. In order to reach this great objective, Afghan people and government spared no any efforts so far, but due to external interferences specially regional intelligences this national goal has not achieved yet and still bloodshed and destructions continues as before. Afghans after deeply analyzing the situation strongly believe that mutual understanding and restraint can lead to bring peace and security in to the country which is vital for Afghan present and future generations. Therefore Islamic Republic of Afghanistan under the leadership of Mr. Karzai analyzing the need of Afghan people for peace and stability and the objectives of foreign countries follow in our country reached the conclusion that peace and stability could be restored in to the country via Afghan managed negotiations. Understanding the importance of inter- Afghan dialogue, the Afghan leadership, for better organizing and coordination established the High Peace Council that members consists of elites and peace loving figures irrespective of their political tendencies and ways of thinking to officially conduct peace negotiations with armed oppositions.
Recently General Ashfaq Kaihani the Pakistani army chief of staff during his visit with US secretary of state suggested that all Afghan groups should have the right to participate in peace negotiations.
The political experts in Afghanistan consider the statements of Mr. Kaihani another wicked game regarding to Afghanistan. The Pakistanis with ill intention, once again want to inter their proxies in peace process in order to achieve their heinous and ambitious objectives in the region and sabotage the process of peace negotiations which is leading with full strength and authority by High Peace council. Pakistan specially its intelligence service ISI follows certain objectives in Afghanistan which are obvious for everybody. Ill intention Pakistanis have never wanted Afghanistan to emerge as an advanced and prosperous country; they have always fueled war and bloodshed in Afghanistan; because Pakistani generals seek their comfort and welfare in bloodshed and insecurity in Afghanistan and never spare designing any conspiracies against Afghan suffering people. Today all Afghans know that the source of their miseries is in Pakistan and they blame ISI for terrorist attacks, bloodshed and destruction of their country. This is ISI that recruits, trains and sends terrorists and extremists for destructive activities in Afghanistan; but ISI and Pakistani general should know that today terrorists who have been trained by ISI, exercise huge power which ISI cannot control any more. Today Pakistani Muslim people are also the targets of suicide attacks, explosions and other terrorist activities which claim the lives of innocent Pakistanis and cause huge destructions. The ISI and Pakistani generals should be blamed for all casualties and destruction daily take place in that country, because they were and still are the trainers and supporters of terrorist groups who launch the attacks.
Afghan people advice Ashfaq Kaihani and people alike in Pakistani military and intelligence organs that Afghans have diagnosed their illness and know the way of its treatment therefore there is no need for foreign prescription. So it would be better for Pakistani generals think about the interests of their own country and keep their prescriptions. The realities of the era advice ISI and Pakistani general not impose themselves to Pakistani people anymore and let them to determine their destiny as they like.
