President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani has welcomed the remarks by the Saudi Imams against the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan.
Speaking with the provincial government and military officials of the 34 provinces via video teleconference, President Ghani welcomed the remarks by Al-Haram and Masjid Nabawi Imams for rejecting the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan as ‘Haram’ or illegitimate.
He said the Islamic Imams and religious scholars of the Islamic world have consolidated views and agree that the ongoing conflict in Afghanistan is illegitimate and are therefore raising their voice in a coordinated manner.
President Ghani also offered condolences and expressed grief regarding the murder of religious scholar in Herat and instructed the relevant authorities to take necessary measures to ensure the safety of the religious clerics.
In the meantime, President Ghani instructed the civilian and military leaderships across the 34 provinces to consult with different sects on provincial level to ensure services are delivered in a better way, emphasizing that the government’s main aim is to achieve the satisfaction of the people.
He also hailed the officials for the better management of ceasefire and emphasized on further measures to ensure security highways, towns, and all other areas.
President Ghani also added that clearance operations are underway but emphasized that all potential threats against the people and sovereignty of the country should be eliminated.
He said government cannot accept even a small risk while observing ceasefire and the security forces must respond to all aggression during the ceasefire period.
