Harakat-e-Inqelab-e-Islami-Afghanistan (HII) has announced its position on the current stage of peace process and the composition of the High Peace Council.
A gathering was held at the party’s central office Kabul. On behalf of the followers of the spiritual leader Mia Gul Jan Agha Mr Mubashir Safi has fully supported Harakat positions, programs regarding the current situations in our country.
Speaking to the gathering, Ustad Mubashir Safi said: “We do not accept any violation of Islamic principles, especially in the education system. The government is indifferent to the increase in prostitution and corruption in the society, which will bring consequences.
Mr Safi added: The current efforts by the government for peace are not positive and cannot lead us to lasting peace.
Maulvi Abdul Hakim Muneeb, the leader of Harakat, spoke about the personality and wide influence of the late Pir Tariqat Mia Gul Jan Agha and his role in supporting the governments of his time. Mr Muneeb upheld the group’s support as a major step forward.
Mr Munib said, the ongoing war in Islamic Ummah, particularly in our country has external and internal dimensions. Its domestic dimensions are more complex and deeper than its external dimensions. The most important internal factor is gaining power and staying in power, but this factor is covered under different names. Killing brother is considered a matter of pride, but accepting the command of Almighty for peace, excuses are saught to oppose peace. Today, we want to respond to the roamers that why we are putting more pressure on the government to reforms than on the opposition.
It is a well-known fact that the Taliban are only fighting, but the government has many other responsibilities as well. We have openly opposed the ongoing war in the country, at all times and from all tribunes. As part of the current system we urge the government that beyond the war against the Taliban, it is accountable to the nation to providing peace, creating employment opportunities, access to education, health care and national development. We have a constitutional right to criticize the government for its deviations from religious beliefs and national interests and to save the country from falling into crisis.
Unfortunately, in contradiction to the oral commitment, practically the government is using every legitimate and illegitimate tactic to stay in power instead of trying to save the nation from disaster, create obstacles to peace. We defend women’s education right and their right to work in a safe environment. Freedom of expression is the most important achievement, the denial of which breeds war.
Being committed to all what we tested above, peace is more important than keeping President Ghani in power. The widespread financial and moral corruption, activities contrary to religious values and national interests, bombings of villages and holy sites, high civilian casualties and the killing of hundreds of Afghans every day is not acceptable. We certainly do not want peace to be sacrificed for empowering someone who considers himself an absolute ruler, irresponsible and uses government resources as private property. If the current tense situation continues under the umbrella of the current government, then we have to accept the consequences of facing more national catastrophes and difficult situations at the national level.
The Reconciliation Council is a body divided between two electoral teams, rather than a representative body of national and political consensus. The foundation is in no way acceptable to the current structure and cannot represent the nation.
We support a democratic system based on the real votes of the people, but which democracy is President Ghani talking about?
A democracy at a cost of hundreds of millions of dollars, could not bring two million ballats out of nearly 11 million registered voters. A democracy where two presidents were sworn in at the same time? Democracy that turned to be devided into a 50 percent stake by a Pompeo phone call? How and why should we be supporters of a government whose roots in corruption stem from the presidential palace? Why should we support a president who hands over the leadership of the central bank to an unknown and mysterious person? The corruption of hundreds of millions of afghanis exposed by the media from the account of Code 91 has brought the heads of our nation down to the world.
In such a tense situation, we hope that the country’s scholars, influential political parties, youth and civil society instead of defending an individual should focus on their goals, religious values, national interests and the soil and integrity.
