On the 9th of Saur one half of the Kabul administration headed by Ashraf Ghani convened an exhibitory conference termed Loya Jirga (Grand Assembly) that ended today (Friday) with the announcement of a resolution regarding which we would like to say the following:
1 – The majority of participants of this conference where individuals that have worked for the American invaders in senior and low-ranking posts or supported, defended and received salaries from the occupation over the past eighteen years hence their resolutions are also efforts for the survival of the invaders and their supporters.
2 – The said conference was in no way a representative assembly of the people and was even boycotted by most Kabul-based politicians and officials of the second-half of the Kabul administration itself. Therefore, this conference was an excuse for extravagant expenditures, diverting attention of the people away from own blunders and a failed popularity attempt by Ashraf Ghani to come out of isolation.
3 – It was extremely unfortunate that not a single individual from the three thousand odd participants mustered the courage to condemn the barbaric attacks on civilian countrymen by the invaders, midnight raids on fellow citizens, bombings of public infrastructure and religious sanctums and killings of defenseless elders, women, men and children, or to demand the end and prevention of this crisis by exerting pressure on the invaders. This itself shines light upon the standing and weight of this supposed Jirga.
4 – The Islamic Emirate has frequently released hundreds of opposition detainees, provided medical treatment and travel money, the recent example being the release of more than a hundred prisoners in Marghab district of Badghis. We have taken this action due to Islamic ethics and good-intentions and this is our policy which we shall continue into the future, Allah willing.
5 – The reality remains that Afghanistan is occupied by America. Jihad against occupation is an individual obligation upon every Muslim member of this nation according to clear texts of the Holy Quran. So long as the occupation is not completely eradicated and path for the establishment of a true pure Islamic system not paved, Jihad shall remain an obligation like it currently is and not one has the capability of pausing or suspending it. The rulings of the noble religion of Islam are also fixed and codified that have already been commentated, interpreted and explained and no one has the right of deviant interpretation.
6 – Since Jihad is an obligation and the pinnacle of worship, performing it in the month of Ramadan has more merit than other months. The Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate exercise extreme caution with the life of public during the month of fasting and otherwise and they shall not be harmed in any attack.
7 – The Islamic Emirate is currently busy negotiating the end of occupation with the American side. After reaching an agreement with the American side during talks, the Islamic Emirate has plans of holding dialogue and solving domestic issues with the internal sides.
Giving consideration to peace talks with the Kabul administration under the shadow of occupation is useless and poses danger to Jihadi aspirations.
