Srinagar. The Hurriyat Conference, led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq, on Thursday expressed hope that the formation of a new government in Afghanistan would end four decades of conflict and uncertainty in the country. Following the withdrawal of U.S. forces, the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan last month and took control of all key cities and towns. He also took control of Kabul on 15 August and on Tuesday announced an interim government led by Mullah Mohammad Hassan Akhund.
The Hurriyat hopes the new administration in this war-torn country will be inclusive and broad-based. He said it was important to remember that Islam was very clear about upholding human equality and rights, economic justice and religious tolerance as fundamental values.
Everyone knows the difference between Afghanistan and Kashmir: Hurriyat
“After the confusing and chaotic events in Afghanistan over the past month, the Hurriyat now hopes that the formation of a new government will put an end to four decades of uninterrupted conflict and uncertainty,” the statement said. The Hurriyat says no two conflict zones are the same and everyone knows the difference between Afghanistan and Kashmir.
“But in Kashmir we can only sympathize with the common people of that country because they too have been living in horrible uncertainty for 40 years,” he said. “In the long run, uncertainty carries its price and we hope that the people of Afghanistan will come out of it soon,” he said. We also hope that the country will begin the process of building its future and realize its aspirations and that all regional and international member countries will support it.
The Taliban must follow the ‘real Sharia’: Mehbooba
Earlier, Mehbooba Mufti, president of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), said on Wednesday that the Taliban in power in Afghanistan should follow “true Sharia”, which guarantees the rights of all, including women. “The Taliban has emerged as a reality,” Mehbooba said. For the first time in his life, he was portrayed as an opponent of human rights. If he wants to rule Afghanistan, he must follow the actual Sharia law set out in the Qur’an, which guarantees the rights of women, children and the elderly. ‘
The former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir has said that if the Taliban wants to do business with the international community, it should stay away from religious orthodoxy. “Otherwise, it will create problems for the people of Afghanistan,” Mehbooba said.
