A number of civil society institutions, the family members of the war victims, and other Kabul residents on Friday protested Pakistan’s policies towards Afghanistan and accused the neighboring country of 'promoting terrorism in Afghanistan.'
Protestors recalled the 14th of August, Pakistan’s Independence Day as a "day of birth of terrorism."
They also warned against continued interference in Afghanistan’s affairs by Pakistan.
“Pakistan is the only country today which is directly interfering on Afghan soil,” said Zabiullah Azizi, a civil society activist in Kabul.
“Pakistan is a 'home for terrorists,' the entire calamities that we passed through over the past four decades are just because of Pakistan,” said Folad Hamdard, a civil society activist.
“14th August is not the day of independence, but it is the 'day of birth of terrorism' in the world and in Afghanistan,” said Ehsanullah Hotak, a civil society activist in Kabul.
Pakistan got its from freedom from Britain on August 14, 1947.
“the Pakistani government should remember that the people of Afghanistan, the new generation of Afghanistan, the women of Afghanistan and the citizens of Afghanistan will not forget anything,” said Hamid Mastoor, a resident.
“Pakistan’s missile shelling on the Afghan soil indicates Pakistan’s enmity against our people,” said Wamel Sahil, a resident.
This comes after a recent incident in which at least nine civilians were killed and 50 others were wounded in Pakistani forces artillery attacks on “residential areas” in Spin Boldak district, Kandahar province.
