(MENAFN - Afghanistan Times) With commencing of holy month of Ramadan, almost countrymen
are expecting peace and harmony and for the purpose eagerly waiting for the
announcement from Taliban group. Couple of days back, President Dr. Ashraf
Ghani while delivering speech to concluding sitting of the consultative Loya
Jirga has not only requested ceasefire but even he announced release of around
175 persons convicted by courts in various terror and violent acts. He on such
occasion asked Taliban leaders to choose a place for receiving these people.
Similarly, former President Hamid Karzai since a long praying for peace and
tranquility. He did everting under his capacity while running affairs of the
country and at the moment he is the most vocal in favor of intra-Afghan
dialogue, which is the sole way to resolve decades old conflict and

divisions on political issues in the country but there exists complete
consensus and unity on the issue of violence, peace and reconciliation. A few

these few individuals are playing in hands of some external forces and at
behest of these external forces, they are fueling tension and creating hurdles
before the peace efforts. Over whelming majority of Afghanistan are Muslims and
they are well aware that Islam is the religion of peace, patience and harmony.
Islam doesn't allow violence and aggression against any one. All Taliban
leaders are genuine Muslims, even majority of them are highly qualified
scholars and well aware about Quran and Ahadith. Now when the holy month of
Ramadan commenced in all over Afghanistan, therefore, Taliban leaders needs to
demonstrate-demonstrate their faith in Islamic obligations and
norms-demonstrate patience and harmony for the war stricken countrymen who have
been made fed up by prolonged wars and hostilities. It is the time for Taliban
leadership to determine their faith in sovereignty and solidarity of the
motherland as the United States has already made mind for pulling its troops
out of Afghanistan. And the declaration of ceasefire in honour of holy month of
Ramadan like of past year could be a stepping stone towards further boosting
and strengthening of intra-Afghan dialogues, which is the sole way for
declaration of country-wide reconciliation.
