New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “Regarding the Safety of the Detained Mujāhidīn in Guantánamo Prison”

According to a report by credible sources, the prominent Jihadi commander of Nangarhar province, Moalim Awal Gul embraced martyrdom on Wednesday last due to bestiality of the American rulers. “We are creatures of Allah and return to Him (eventually).”

It is now one year since the issuance of decree by the figurehead president of America, Barack Obama, concerning the closure of the Guantanamo Prison but it is still operative. Hundreds of Mujahideen have been suffering in the prison in a very brutal environ for the past nine years without any legal justification. On the one hand, the prisoners are deprived of their basic rights of life but, on the other hand, they have borne the brunt of the callous and inhumane conduct of the American jailers during the past nine years. The indictments have not been proved against them as yet. They are deprived of the right to have access to lawyers to defend them. Hundred of times,s the American ruler resorted to the use of weapon against the prisoners whenever they staged strikes for obtainment of their legitimate rights. The martyrdom of the eminent commander Moalim Awal Gul at the hands of the Americans in Guantanamo Prison is a clear indicator of the American violation of all national and international agreements and covenants and portrays their brutal behavior with the detainees in this illegitimate prison.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan calls on all so-called Heads of the judiciaries of the White House and the coalition countries to stop torturing the prisoners of the Islamic Emirate and end violation of their human rights. Otherwise, the responsibility will rest with your military and judicial chiefs, should the Islamic Emirate have to take any step in response to your brutality. Similarly, the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan strongly urges all global organizations of human rights and of prisoners’ rights advocacy entities to fulfill their humanitarian responsibility as regards the prevention of the bestiality of the brutal Americans against prisoners in Guantanamo and in other Americans prisons.

And the lawyer for Awal Gul, a former Taliban figure who died after exercising last week at Guantánamo, disputed U.S. government assertions that Gul met with Osama bin Laden and ran a guesthouse for al Qaeda fighters (NYT). The blog Jihadology this weekend published the purported statement from the Taliban in response to Gul’s death (Jihadology).  [...]
