Former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani stated in his Eid message that the people of Afghanistan want a legitimate government and an acceptable government for all, “but they prefer this to be achieved peacefully.”

However, Mr. Ghani warned that the patience of the Afghan people is not unlimited.

In his Eid message, Ghani wrote that people are currently “not in favor of war and bloodshed because there is a proverb that says ‘a knot that can be untied with fingers does not need teeth and fists.'”

Nevertheless, the former president warned that people might resort to violence to achieve their demands, which according to him “is a path to the country’s destruction and ruin, experienced painfully many times in the past half-century.”

He also mentioned in his message, referencing the saying “testing what has been tested is a mistake,” that “creating and consolidating legitimacy should never mean the return of previously tested and despised individuals.”

Former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani, who fled the country on August 15, 2021, leading to the Taliban’s takeover of Kabul, stated that “autocracy, the sword, the gun, and the explosion” cannot bring legitimacy. According to him, legitimacy lies in the hands of the people and comes from their “rule and participation.”

In this message, he emphasized the establishment of a legitimate government and “transparency in the use of public funds.”

Ashraf Ghani fled the country on 15 August 2021, which led to the takeover by the Taliban. Ghani took power in a controversial presidential election marred by accusations of fraud.

Many Afghan commentators considered him a weak leader, unable to effectively govern or address the country’s numerous challenges.

His departure and the subsequent collapse of the Afghan government were seen by many as a reflection of his failed leadership and the systemic issues, including corruption, and the presence of preferred individuals within his administration.
