Chairman of the Jamiat-e-Islami party Salahuddin Rabbani has warned that if the main parties involved in the Afghan peace process initiate the talks without seeking domestic and international consensus, the process will be subjected to a setback.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the Martyr Burhanuddin Rabbani Foundation and the opening of the central office of the Jamiat-e-Islami party, Rabbani said the Jamiat-e-Islami has so far not formally introduced any representative for peace talks.
“Jamiat-e- Islami party has not yet officially introduced any delegates to the negotiating team,” said Rabbani.
Rabbani also accused some members of the party of putting their own interests ahead of the party and for recklessness in making big decisions affecting the party.
Rabbani criticized the election results.
“Based on reason and logic, accepting fraud instead of the people's vote is considered a national interest? If this is in the national interest, you would write in the Loya Jirga for the constitution that the people's vote does not matter, and that the political leader of Afghanistan will be chosen through the force of deception and fraud,” said Rabbani.
Rabbani says those who came to power with the support of the West have used government resources and the system to eliminate others.
"Instead of working together honestly with the influential parties in the society and drawing a comprehensive and justice-oriented program for the future of Afghanistan, a group that is at the top of the system with the support of the West, using the opportunities that arose -including global contributions-- has used government resources and the system to weaken and politically eliminate popular parties.”
“Political parties today are making major efforts to bring peace to the country, and statements that call into question this consensus will not be logical,” said Sediq Sediqqi, spokesman for President Ghani.
Rabbani described the global community's plan to build a nation in Afghanistan as unrealistic and incomplete, saying that for the past 19 years most people’s view had not considered in the structure of the system and that is why the country has gone into crisis.
