Mullah Mutasim Agha Jan’s message of congratulation on the occasion of Eid ul-Fitr

بسم الله الرحمن الرحیم

. الحمدلله رب العالمین والصلوة علی رحمة للعالمین محمد وعلی اله واصحابه اجمعین

Praise be to Allah and blessings and peace be on Mohammad, the Mercy to the worlds, his family and his Companions

وبعد، قال الله عزوجل فی القران الکریم: مِنْ أَجْلِ ذَٰلِكَ كَتَبْنَا عَلَىٰ بَنِي إِسْرَائِيلَ أَنَّهُ مَن قَتَلَ نَفْسًا بِغَيْرِ نَفْسٍ أَوْ فَسَادٍ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَكَأَنَّمَا قَتَلَ النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا وَمَنْ أَحْيَاهَا فَكَأَنَّمَا أَحْيَا النَّاسَ جَمِيعًا ۚ وَلَقَدْ جَاءَتْهُمْ رُسُلُنَا بِالْبَيِّنَاتِ ثُمَّ إِنَّ كَثِيرًا مِّنْهُم بَعْدَ ذَٰلِكَ فِي الْأَرْضِ لَمُسْرِفُونَ (۳۲) سورهٔ المائده

Because of that, We decreed upon the Children of Israel that whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land – it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one – it is as if he had saved mankind entirely. And our messengers had certainly come to them with clear proofs. Then indeed many of them, [even] after that, throughout the land, were transgressors

!The Islam-loving people of Afghanistan

!The defenders of freedom and autonomy

!The suffered brothers and sisters of the great value

!As-salamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

It gives great pleasure and honor to express my best wishes and warmest congratulation to you all on the occasion of the celebration of Eid al-Fitr and would like to use this solemn occasion to share my feelings and views with you in respect of the recent events and challenges and current affairs in the country

!Troubled countrymen

To begin with, let me my offer my deepest sympathies and most sincere condolences to the bereaved families faced with terror and war have suffered from the bloody incidents in the month of Ramadan

May Allah bless the departed souls of the oppressed martyrs and give fortitude, patience and !happiness to the grieving families

May Allah Almighty save and rid this country of the imposed war through the bloodshed of the innocent oppressed martyrs and bless all the Afghans with a life of prosperity, security and peace under the umbrella of a united and stable Islamic and national system

Such indiscriminate and bloody incidents by unknown perpetrators with no clear goals are undoubtedly the acts of the ruthless enemies of the Afghan nation who have no goodwill towards Afghanistan

Untargeted bombings in Masjids (mosques), religious rituals and popular gatherings are cowardly and un-Islamic acts of terror and they find no justification in any religion

These heartless acts are plotted by the enemies of the Afghan Muslim nation to create distrust and rift among Afghans and use an Afghan against his fellow Afghan brother

It is only by the grace of Allah Almighty and then through our unity, coherence, integrity, sincerity and solidarity that we can get rid of such destructive activates

!Respected fellow countrymen

As a shared home and country, the maintenance of peace, the establishment of stability, renovation and creating an acceptable and stable Islamic and national system of the entire nation in Afghanistan and defending her is the Islamic and national duty and responsibility of us all

Similarly, we, the Afghans need to roll up our sleeves and join hands in our individual and social efforts with unity, harmony, integrity and sincerity to work for our greatest interest and save our country from the threats and problems facing it without giving any chance and hopes to the outsiders to attempt to bring peace, security stability and prosperity in our country

We have seen tens of the countries spend 17 years and billions of dollars under NATO-led mission in the name of stabilizing peace and security and establishing legitimate government

Despite this all, 17 years later the country’s security condition is even worse than ever and instead of renovation, reconstruction and development we see death and destruction in its wake and our country lies in further ruins

!Esteemed countrymen

I would like to draw your attention to a very important point

In recent times, the United States yet again intends to deploy additional combat troops in Afghanistan repeating its bitter, harmful and failed experience of the past and attempts to plunge our country into a prolonged and continued war that would lead it to even more instability and destruction

In fact, peace in our country depends on rooting out the causes of war and it is obvious that the only cause of the ongoing conflict in the country is the existence of the American forces

This is crystal clear that the current U.S military involvement is in conflict with our belief, community and temperament and is a matter of sensitivity to neighboring countries and regional powers

In any way, shape, or form, the more this intervention prolongs, the deeper our country plunges into crisis and problems

In my opinion it would be contrary to reality and an error of judgment on the part of the Afghan government to think that peace would restore and it could end the war as well as achieving victory with the deployment of 5000 American combat troops in the country

Questionably, when 150,000 US-led NATO forces in Afghanistan failed to ensure peace and help the former government triumph, a meagre increase of 5,000 troops will not make any difference

It is, therefore, necessary for the government to mull over working for the elimination of the causes of war rather than causing war

The presence of US troops offered the largest of its all bombs known as the “mother of all bombs” as a gift to Afghans, giving no message to Afghan nation other than destruction and devastation

We are strongly of the opinion that the pullout of the U.S troops from Afghanistan would be in the interest of the Afghan nation and Afghanistan in addition to the United Sates

It is, consequently, imperative for politicians, particularly the parties to the Afghan issue to convince the international community that U.S-NATO military involvement is neither in favor of Afghans nor in Americans’ favor

Similarly, we urge the current U.S government to precisely and closely monitor, revise and reconsider the existence of its forces in Afghanistan so as to make sure that the presence of the U.S troops has provoked violent regional reactions. It has nothing to gain by further extension of its mission and staying in Afghanistan except for suffering heavy casualties and excessive financial losses

!Honored brothers

Obviously, the lack of reconciliation, understanding and harmony between Afghans has given way to every kind of interference in Afghanistan by the opportunist and self-interested powers of the world

If we truly want the destiny of our country to be determined by our nation we, in the first place, must bridge the divide between ourselves and resolve our differences

In expressing their goodwill and mutual respect all the Afghans need to take proper actions and necessary measures

To show respect for the blessed Eid ul Fitr, and sympathy for their Afghan brothers, helping release the oppressed prisoners along with forming an atmosphere of belief and trust, the factions involved in the conflict have to take necessary steps

It would be a suitable and useful move and opportune time to make every effort and take appropriate actions in this regard as our Prophet (S.A.W) says: (ارْحَموا مَنْ في الأرض يرحمْكُم من في السَّماءِ)

!Be merciful to those on the earth and the One above the heavens will have mercy upon you

!Proud countrymen

Geographically, all the settled and existing ethnic groups and people are one nation and members of the same family and one belief

With the rival of the Islamic and national spirit, let us develop a feeling of mutual trust and support instead of offending and ruining or letting each other down

Frankly, we may end up hurting and ruining each other as well as devastating our homes if we, God forbid, provoked by the enemies, resort to betraying, insulting and weakening one another

Opposing and turning against each other would not solve our country’s problem, on the contrary, such acts could only be used in the interest of the enemies

Similarly, the sides concerned in the Afghan issue have to pay heed to the fact that contradiction, clash and conflict would not offer a real solution to the problem

Contrarily, a good understanding and reconciliation are the only solution to the Afghan issue and could be a healthy way to reach a settlement, heal the rift and alleviate suffering

!Valued and Islam-loving Afghans

The internal strife and interpersonal disputes are the catastrophe and sedition that have threatened the unity and integrity of the Muslim Ummah (Muslim community) worldwide

We can see the Middle Eastern countries such as Iraq, Yemen, Syria… historically possessing great wealth, fortune and assets with vast civilizations facing misery, suffering and problem

Today, if the Muslims globally and the Afghans at the country level fail to take a lesson from these terrible events, they will surely find themselves confronted by the worse problems and crisis than they are facing now

Finally, the affluent and well-off are asked to remember the destitute and poor in the joyous days of Eid ul Fitr and offer them gifts, donations, Sadaqah “voluntary charity” which is the demand of the holy religion of Islam and Sharia

It necessary for every countrymen not to withhold their charitable contributions, obligatory alms, Sadaqat al-Fitr from the destitute and needy people as our beloved Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu ‘Alaihi wa Sallam) says regarding help and assistance: “

وَاللَّهُ فِي عَوْنِ الْعَبْدِ مَا كَانَ الْعَبْدُ فِي عَوْنِ أَخِيهِAllah will aid a servant [of His] as long as the servant aids his brother

!May Allah give all the Afghans and all Muslims the guidance to follow the right path and seek His pleasure! Aameen

(وَقُلِ اعْمَلُوا فَسَيَرَى اللَّهُ عَمَلَكُمْ وَرَسُولُهُ وَالْمُؤْمِنُونَ)

And say (O Muhammad SAW) “Do deeds! Allah will see your deeds, and (so will) His Messenger and the believers

!Wassalam o alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh

Peace and mercy and blessings of Allah be on you

Your brother,

Mullah Agha Jan Mutasim,

The former head of the political committee of Taliban’s Islamic movement,
