KABUL: Acting Minister of Information and Culture, Mohammad Qasim Wafayezada said Wednesday that Pakistan still imagines a stateless Afghanistan and that the neighboring country should not beat the drum for destruction, reacting to a recent tweet by Shah Mahmood Qureshi, who called for a ceasefire in Afghanistan.
“Pakistan’s foreign minister tweeted the other day, calling for a ceasefire in Afghanistan. The tweet comes after the international community returned attention and support for the people and government of Afghanistan, following a campaign of bloodshed, violence and killings,” Minister Wafayezada said in a written note on his Facebook page.
The minister went on saying that Qureshi’s short tweet reveals the hidden intention and obvious goals of the Pakistani government, as it still imagines a stateless Afghanistan and calls anyone stakeholders.
“The war in Afghanistan is imposed by Pakistani and their backed Taliban agents who have accepted slavery of the ISI and this is a war of terrorism against the people of Afghanistan, not a war of few domestic political groups. The ongoing war in Afghanistan is a targeted attack on democracy, freedom of expression, human rights of the people of Afghanistan and women’s rights, development and freedom of the people,” he noted.
“Today, both pro and anti-government politicians are united in their stand against this bloodshed and violence efforts, and the entire people of Afghanistan, from every ethnic group, tribe, language and province, stood against the widespread terrorist attacks within the popular local uprisings,” he continued.
Wafayezada added: “The people of Afghanistan, as a nation that has spent four decades of war and unrest, are now in dire need of peace and security than anyone else, but a peace that does not sacrifice the main values and the political system and does not cowers the people of Afghanistan to start from zero.”
He further said: “Here, this is only in the interest of the people and the government, not of those seeking the destruction of Afghanistan by destroying public infrastructures. Mr. Qureshi must recorrect his understanding of international relations and the situation in Afghanistan, and as a neighbor, should not beat the ‘drum for destruction of Afghanistan’ nor insist on returning the Afghan people to a state of anarchy and chaos, as it will eventually affect Pakistan as well. The voice of peace and support that came from Waziristan must be taken serious.”
The minster said that Pakistan’s conspiracies and their evil intentions have now become as obvious as could not be hidden from the people of Afghanistan, adding that they could hidden behind their apparently benevolent remarks.
