hekmatyarGulbuddin, leader of the Islamic Party of Afghanistan (Hezb-e-Islami) accused foreign troops for plotting the division of Afghanistan with the support of the minority groups, in a bid to pave the way for continued war in the country.

Hematyar in a statement released on the occassion of Eid-ul-fitr said that foreigners are scrambling to disorganize the central government by creating the federal system in the country and devilry by differentiating the minority and majority groups.

He said the foreigners have given more share to minorities in security institutions, and has created a separate province for the minorities besides where the governor is also appointed according to their will.

According to Hekmatyar, Bamiyan and Daikundi provinces have the status of independent states similar to Balkh province. Hekmatyar in his letter also accused the presidential palace for being under the pressure of Irn Dollars and programs of the United States of America.

He said Daikundi was created an independent province due to Iran and U.S. pressures, and all the authorities including civil and military institutions were given to Hazaras and Shias.

He also pointed towards the territorial issues between the Kuchis (Nomads) and Hazaras in central Maidan Wardak province, and said that certain groups backed by United States were encouraged to conquer the lands of Pashtuns, and do not allow the Kuchis to go to their lands.

Hekmatyar in his letter also warned the Hazara minority that the oppressed people of Afghanistan one day fight against their rights which have been seized from them and at that time there will be no place for the Hazaras to hide.

He said that a number of the Hazaras will escape to Iran but they will not be welcomed and will face barbaric cruel behaviors of the Iran people and government.

In parts of his letter, Gulbuddin Hekmatyar compared the current situation of the country with the soviet occupation and warned that the minority groups in favour of the foreing troops will face such a punishment that will remain a lesson for their coming generations.

Gulbuddin Hekmatyar is leading an anti-government militant group in Afghanistan and has been blacklisted by US Department of State. His militants are mostly operating in eastern and north-eastern provinces of the country.

He is believed to be hiding somewhere in Pakistani tribal region.
