Hundreds rally against Pakistan in Mazar-i-Sharif

protestMAZAR-I-SHARIF: Hundreds of people on Sunday staged a protest demonstration against Pakistan and termed Pashtuns living on both sides of the Durand Line as same Afghans.

The protestors chanted “we want peace, all Pashtuns are Afghans, we are not terrorists”.

They asked the international community to pay attention to the rights of people across the Durand Line and urged an end to the current turmoil there.

 Zabihullah Kakar, a provincial council (PC) member and participant of the rally, told Pajhwok Afghan News that now the Afghans knew their enemy and would work jointly to eliminate it.

He added the Durand Line was unacceptable because it divided the Pashtuns.

Maulvi Lal Mohammad, a religious scholar, said Pakistan being a Muslim country did not act as an Islamic country.

He added Pakistan had done nothing in favour of Afghanistan over the past few decades.

He said: “The Punjabi scholars should not try to teach Islam to us, we know Islam better than them”.

He also appreciated President Ashraf Ghani’s support for the just concluded unprecedented protest sit in by the Pashtuns in Pakistan.

Finally, the protestors in their resolution asked the international community to designate Pakistan as ‘a terrorist country’ and also urged UNSC to allow military operations across the Durand Line to eliminate terrorist sanctuaries.
