Why Do The Invaders Seek To Prolong War In Afghanistan?

Many political analysts believe the stationing of American and NATO troops in
Afghanistan is an open aggression of a sovereign country. The so-called war on
terror is merely a slogan for justification of occupation. In fact,
containment of political and military influence of Russia and China; dominance
over the natural resources of Afghanistan and central Asia; maintenance and
expansion of influence in neighboring countries of Afghanistan and the Middle
East are the prime motives.
At the time of American invasion of Afghanistan these motives were not as
obvious as with the passage of time they became clear particularly when Russia
integrated Crimea, an island of pro-western Ukraine in March 2014, which is
now directly under the control of Russia. Moreover in September 2015, Russia
directly intervened in the Syrian war.
These and other similar developments have widened the gap between Russia and
NATO. Recently the White House announced that they had notified Russian
Embassy in Washington last June that their two diplomats were persona non
grata and should leave USA. In response, Russia also expelled two American
diplomats. On the other side, military movements of China and America in South
China Sea have also created an atmosphere of Cold War.
In view of these changes, we see that pledge of five billion dollars aid to
the Kabul administration until year 2020 at NATO Heads of State summit in
WARSAW on 8-9 July was to prolong their presence and war in Afghanistan and to
use Afghanistan as a military outpost against the said rival or rivals. This
move has no link with terrorism nor a rationale that other countries are
facing threat from here.
It is to be mentioned that there is no threat posed to the security of any
country from Afghanistan as per the policy of the Islamic Emirate based on the
principle of ''do not harm nor accept harm''. This point is elucidated a
number of times in statements of Islamic Emirate. However from the beginning,
invading countries deliberately want to make the so-called issue of terrorism
in Afghanistan a larger than life figure in order to justify their military
Afghans are heroes of the two Jihads. Obtainment of independence and
establishment of genuine Islamic system are those shared goals on which
Afghans could always come together. These shared goals are the fruits of
sacrifices of the two Jihads but still all are awaiting its realization. For
this reason, we call on the Afghan nation to come together for obtainment of
these goals i.e. independence of the country and Islamic system. They should
stand beside the Islamic Emirate against occupation and should protect their
country from covert plots and conspiracies of global colonialism and
arrogance. In fact, it is the way leading to independence of the country and
Maltreatment of the Afghan Refugees should End
For almost four decades now the Afghan refugees have been living in Pakistan.
Throughout this entire period they have co-existed with the people of Pakistan
in an atmosphere of Islamic fraternity, participating in ceremonies of
festivities and mourning of each other. No big security problem has ever
arisen among them. The reason is that they have shared religious, lingual and
cultural bonds with the local people.
As the time elapsed, they started to take spectacular part in economic
movement of the host country, especially in infrastructure i.e. roads'
macadamizing and dams' construction, land reclamation and other
construction-related works. Similarly, they are active in the business sector.
All these positive economic activities unequivocally contribute to the
development of the host country.
But unfortunately, enemies do not want the mutual relations between the two
Muslim countries – which are based on brotherhood and good neighborliness –
continue steadily. They always try to cleavage between the two brother people
by misusing any opportunity that crops up. Everyone understands that
maintenance of law and order is the duty of security forces of a country
however this must be done within the framework of law. The Afghan refugees
should not bear the brunt of maltreatment of the security forces or become
victim because of ephemeral political expediencies. Circumstances and
governments come and go however nations stay and endure.
It is to be mentioned that the Afghans' mass exodus to Pakistan as refugees
took place when the Red Army of the former Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan on
December 1979, installing a puppet government and raising slogans to usher in
a Red Revolution. Back then everyone believed that the Red Army was an
invincible force hence the region was gripped with fear and apprehension. But
the Afghan Mujahid people rolled up their sleeve to obtain their independence
and stymie the danger, then referred to as the Red Threat. By offering over
1.5 millions martyrs, the Afghan Mujahid people were able to put an end to the
Red Threat, so much so that it could not retain its foothold in the region and
the world. This is a historical favor of the Afghan people on the region and
It is an open secret that Afghanistan is now an occupied country. Foreign and
their lackey internal troops carry out night raids and bombardment against
houses of innocent Afghans. They detain civilians under one pretext and
another and people have been robbed of an environ to lead an ordinary life.
We urge the Pakistani government to take steps to stop the maltreatment of the
Afghan refugees at the hands of the policemen and provide facilities for free
movement of the refugees and their normal living so that the relations of
Islamic brotherhood between the two nations will enhance further.
