Islamic Emirate Pursues National Interests of Afghanistan
04 March 2015
By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun
If we look into the twenty years history of the Islamic Emirate and study
their performance and achievements unbiasedly and impartially then we will
reach the fact that indeed, Islamic Emirate has always pursued national
interests of the country as per aspiration of the people. The Islamic Emirate
considers defense of every inch of its country, protection of its values and
preservation of its national dignity as its Islamic and national
responsibility. For the obtainment of the said lofty goals, they have given
enormous sacrifices which still continue to this day.
Therefore our policy and strategy is clear regarding peace and war,
solidarity or confrontation, invaders and their Afghan allies. We want peace
but war has been imposed upon us by others. We believe that the first item of
negotiation should be the end of occupation and secondly the establishment of
an Islamic government but the opposition stresses on the continuation of
occupation. We believe that all Afghans are brothers. Afghanistan is the
common home of all afghans and this is the accepted right of all brother
tribes to have full participation in government, administration and defense
of the country. But we cannot accept occupation under any title because
occupation is not compatible with our religious values and national interests
while the opposition considers the existence of invaders a necessity and does
not give any significance to the interest of people and country.
Protection of national and other high interests of Afghanistan is the demand
of the nation. According to the aspiration of our brave nation, five primary
demands are enlisted as under.
1. Complete freedom of Afghanistan, defense of boundaries and end of
occupation under any name and title.
2. Establishment of Islamic government and implementation of Sharia law.
3. Establishment of peace and satisfactory security across the country.
4. Participation of all communities and tribes in government, on the basis of
talent and abilities.
5. Equal access to education, economical, medical, cultural and social
services without discrimination, differences and distinctions.
If someone asked about a national government or national administration then
intellectuals and experts will definitely say that an administration that
defends the lofty interests of a nation and submits to the aspirations of
people is a national administration. However the so called national
government in Kabul that has been installed by America is not a national
government because they have not taken into account the basic demands of the
nation. Mere gathering of representatives of factions and communities cannot
be considered a national government.
It is obvious to our people and the world that the Islamic Emirate in its
history has no chapter where it compromised or bargained on the great
interests of people and the country. The Islamic Emirate has always clearly
conveyed its stance to his allies and opponents, countrymen and the world,
near and far. We once again emphasize on our stance and assure our people
that by the grace of Allah, the Almighty and with the help of our people, we
will continue our struggle until the end of occupation and for the obtainment
of our national interests.
Preservation and Protection of National Assets is a National obligation
Preservation, protection and maintenance of national asset is a great
religious and national obligation.
This is because on the one hand they are the essential pillar of the economic
system of the country and on the other hand, play a fundamental role in the
procurement of basic religious, educational and social needs of the Afghan
So construction and protection of public properties is a dire need for the
strengthening and prolongation of Islamic system.
No doubt, all public properties (used by common people) like roads, bridges,
tunnels, water dams, irrigation systems, electricity junctions, electricity
transfer centers, mines extraction and refinery centers and their equipment,
educational institutions, seminaries, mosques, schools, universities, health
centers, clinics, hospitals etc. are the shared properties of the nation.
Their existence benefits the common people and lack of them harms the common
Their destruction is not only an anti-human crime but is a wicked act
according to the Islamic Sharia, because public properties are part of the ''Baitulmal''.
Any intentional tampering with and destruction of Baitulmal is a great sin as
per the injunction of the holy religion of Islam.
If we go through the history of the guided caliphs (may Allah be pleased with
them all) or the history of the Muslim Amirs who came after them, we would
find out that each of them had instructed his Jihadi commanders with an eye
to the situation of that time to thwart every kind of corruption and
destruction during Jihadi operations as best as they could.
The instructions of Abu Bakr Siddique (may Allah be pleased with Him) is
spectacularly clear. He addressed Mujahideen: ''Stay a while, I want to
advise you about ten things, remember them all…. In his instruction, he
advised them to shun from betrayal, embezzlement and avoid the killing of
unarmed people, cutting of fruit-bearing trees and the killing of cattle.
The esteemed Amir-ul-momineen Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid (may Allah protect
him) following the footsteps of the righteous Amirs has repeatedly instructed
his Mujahideen in his messages to protect (people's) personal properties and
For example, in his message on the eve of Eid-ul-fitr 2014, addressing the
Mujahideen, he said to them:'' This is your religious and national obligation
to strive for the wellbeing of people…. Causing harm to people's life,
property and honor is a great crime, the perpetrator of which will not escape
accountability neither in this world nor the world to come.
Your conduct with people should be but tolerance, humility, patience,
selflessness and mutual respect…….. you should take care of the people's life
and property during Jihadic operations so that they may not be harmed.''
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan began the sacred Jihad on the basis of the
rulings of Islamic Sharia aimed at gaining independence of the country and
people, forcing the invaders to leave the country and establishing an
independent Islamic regime.
Therefore, it deems it its duty to preserve and protect public
properties-even it considers it a national and Sharia- based responsibility
of every Mujahid. So every Mujahid is duty-bound on the basis of Sharia to
hinder harm to and destruction of baitulmal (public property).
The Islamic Emirate will take drastic measures in the light of Islamic Sharia
against those who try to cause harm to the people and the country.
