Religious scholars from many Muslim countries gathered at an international symposium on Imam-e-Azam (the great imam) Abu Hanifa in Kabul on Wednesday where they condemned terrorism and extremism in all its forms and manifestation.
Second Vice President Mohammad Sarwar Danish inaugurated the three-day symposium that would see notable religious figures from Afghanistan, Turkey, Egypt, Central Asia and a number of other Muslim countries deliberating on various aspects of the life and teachings of the founder of Hanafi school of Sunni jurisprudence.
Former Indian ambassador to Afghanistan, Amar Sinha, says that Daesh is a tool of the Pakistani army which has been fabricated to put pressure on the Afghan government and on the Taliban if the group eventually gets reintegrated and mainstreamed in the structure of the Afghan government.
Talking to TOLOnews, the former Indian envoy said that assessments which are carried out by the Afghan institutions have found that over 70 percent of Daesh fighters are coming from Pakistan’s tribal regions.
