New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīhullah Mujāhid: “Remarks Regarding the Killing of Children in the Serena Hotel”
Last Friday on 29/12/1392 Islamic Emirate’s valiant Mujahideen attacked Serena Hotel which is located in the heart of Kabul adjacent to the Arg (Presidential Palace).
In the attack numerous foreign and internal agents were killed for their crimes against the Afghan people. We say with regret that during this attack reports were published that a journalist along with his wife and two children were also killed. The Kabul administration, consistent with their habit, slurred the Islamic Emirate and accused them of the death of this family. The truth is that this killing is not the work of the Islamic Emirate. From the beginning the Islamic Emirate has based its campaign on the sublime principles of Islam including the protection of women and children from the trauma of war. The blessed religion of Islam prohibits the killing of women and children even in times of war. So on what basis would the Islamic Emirate condone, let along perpetuate the killing of women and children. If the Islamic Emirate wanted to perpetuate such actions there was absolutely no need to undertake such risks of attacking the well fortified Serena Hotel. In reality the targeting of civilians, women and children can be done in most public places. The truth is the foreign invaders and their puppets have themselves perpetuated this vile act so they can libel the Mujahideen. They knew that the attack had been undertaken by the Mujahideen therefore any acts inside will naturally be attributed to them.
During the past 13 years the people of Afghanistan have witnessed on innumerable occasions that whenever the foreigners are attacked, they retaliate by indiscriminately shooting and killing ordinary Afghans. We have seen in numerous instances that in such attacks they have killed civilians and even their own allies.
The Islamic Emirate is saddened by the killing of the journalist and his family while attributing these incriminate actions to the cowardly foreigner invaders and their puppets, mourns with the family of the deceased and prays for their patience and steadfastness in this difficult time.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīhullah Mujāhid: “Remarks Regarding Civilian Casualties Report By UNAMA”
Like last year, UNAMA office in Kabul once again published its yearly report on civilian casualties in Afghanistan for 2013.
The composed report once again unfairly attributes 74% of civilian casualties as being caused by the Mujahideen with 11% attributed to the Kabul regime security apparatus which includes Arbaki forces (local militias) and 2% to the foreign occupying forces.
It must be made clear that these baseless and far from reality reports are directly produced by the US embassy and then published under the name of United Nations.
We strongly condemn this biased report by UNAMA. The esteemed Amir ul Mumineen (Commander of the Faithful) has given strict guidelines to our Mujahideen for preventing civilian casualties. Despite our operations for the current year having increased and covering vast regions however extreme caution was taken and civilian casualties were kept to a minimum as compared to the past.
The true causes of civilian casualties in our nation can be summarized below:
Blind and retaliatory airstrikes by the foreign forces, night raids, indiscriminate firing after attacks; breaking into homes of civilians by police and army in form of search operations, aggravating children and adults, looting homes, stealing valuables and jewelry of women from homes; killing of civilians by Arbakis in all corners of the country, oppression, transgressing against the life, wealth and honor of people, martyring innocent civilians due to personal feuds, the savagery and barbarism of Commander Shujai from Uruzgan province is not hidden from anyone – who has single handedly martyred over 200 civilians.
UNAMA always publishes reports biased towards the Americans under the guise of a neutral organ but our nation sees everything with their own eyes; they see who the perpetrators of savagery are, they see who kills and bombs – the latest example of which is the incident in Siyah Gerd – and who killed little children in Kunar under label of Al Qaida!
If UNAMA even had the slightest concern for civilian casualties and did not merely use this subject as a tool against Mujahideen then it would have whole heartedly decided on impartiality and would have accepted the offer for preventing civilian casualties put forward by Mujahideen to UNAMA three years prior.
The failure of UNAMA to give a timely answer to our initiative made it clear that UNAMA is not actually concerned about civilian casualties but rather only wants to help the American invaders in their propaganda war.
On top of considering the latest UNAMA civilian casualties report to be completely the other way around, we reaffirm our commitment to take care of the life of civilians as part of our Islamic mission, our religious obligation and Afghan sympathy towards our oppressed nation. Taking care of the life of civilians in war is our responsibility more than that of the Americans which our nation can testify to in our actions.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīhullah Mujāhid: “The Blacklisting of Our Mujāhidīn Signifies American Military Failure”
The American invaders announced on Wednesday the blacklisting of three Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate namely Yahya (Haqqani), Maulawi Sayedullah and Muhammad Omar (Zadran).
We condemn this ineffective and theatrical blacklisting by America on top of which we also believe it to be an illustration of the abject failure and defeat of America as it is absolutely obvious that no Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate either have trade relationships with America nor any accounts in their interest plagued banks which could be effected by these superficial seizures.
The reality is that America has lost militarily in Afghanistan and now wants to atone this military defeat with petty propaganda war.
The defeated Americans must realize that the Mujahideen of Islamic Emirate take pride in having their names included in such blacklists while those Mujahideen who were blacklisted by America a few years ago have been at the forefront of fighting the invaders and have dealt them a heavy blow militarily.
We can confidently say that such blacklistings do not affect the Jihadi moral and activities of our Mujahideen in the slightest but works paradoxically by strengthening their Jihadi resolves.
To end we must state that all three of the named Mujahideen are from Khost and Paktika provinces of Afghanistan and reports which allege that some are Pakistani nationals are completely baseless.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīhullah Mujāhid: “Remarks Regarding Demands by America”
After a series of recent attacks against foreign invaders in Afghanistan, the latest of which was a martyrdom operation inside Kabul targeting high ranking American and other foreign invaders in which tens where handed retributive justice for their actions, America was compelled to ask the Islamic Emirate to hold peace talks with the Kabul regime and lay down their arms, also stating that the American invaders are supposedly working for a better future of Afghanistan!!?? While failing to mention anything regards its own recent savagery in Siyah Gerd district!!!
We strongly reject the American demand. America wants to turn a blind eye from a manifest reality and conveniently skip over the primary reason for the problems of Afghanistan. The major factor which has been antagonizing our oppressed nation for the past twelve years is the American invasion and its resultant barbarity. America similarly wants to portray those of its nationals who are the enemies of our land and religion and are working for the aims of the occupation as the friends and rebuilders of our country.
If America truly wants peace and stability for Afghanistan then it should immediately withdraw all its forces from our land and leave the Afghans to their own wills and aspirations.
If America is adamant on war and occupation then it should wait for more deadly attacks. The Islamic Emirate has a responsibility towards its Lord (Allah), people and country and it shall not back away from any kind of sacrifice in the way of its fulfillment.
Until we have completely freed our country of the menace of occupation; until we have established an Islamic government in accordance with the desires of our nation in our country and until we have fulfilled the aspiration of our martyrs from our two great Jihads, do not hope for us to lay down our arms but instead work on changing the course of your own wrong policies and imperialist goals.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīhullah Mujāhid: “Remarks Regarding a False Report by the AP”
The western news outlet (AP) published a report on Saturday which stated that officials of The Islamic Emirate had met some members of the Kabul regime in Dubai and tried to somehow give authenticity to its piece by attributing information to unknown sources.
We categorically deny this false report by The Associated Press. No officials of The Islamic Emirate have ever met or had discussion with members of the Kabul regime in Dubai. Such rumors spread by the enemy are a part of their propaganda effort through which they want to achieve their malicious objectives.
We strongly urge The Associated Press to firstly publish our denial exactly the same way. Since this agency has published a fabricated report about us therefore it is their due responsibility to also publish our side of the story as part of being a news agency.
We similarly once again urge The Associated Press and other news outlets to publish reports about us through our known addresses. They should not write up reports which discuss important issues without providing names of sources or officials while being falsely tied to the Islamic Emirate. If such actions are repeatedly taken by news agencies then it in return gives the enemy intelligence organs leeway to spread propaganda against the Mujahideen by quoting unnamed Mujahideen officials. News outlets have a responsibility towards us in cases where they quote unknown sources and if such actions start repeating themselves then it will force the hand of The Islamic Emirate to show a reaction and take legal steps towards that specific agency.
News outlets must truly become independent. They should publish unbiased and responsible reports based on sound principles and not give a hand to intelligence organs in pursuit of their self interests.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīhullah Mujāhid: “Dispelling the Concerns of Some of Afghanistan’s Neighboring States”
Recently some of Afghanistan’s neighboring states, namely India, China and Russia, have expressed concern that if American forces exit Afghanistan then Afghanistan will be faced with strife and could become a threat to the stability of the region.
We consider these concerns to be the product of the propaganda dissemination by Western Intelligence-controlled media outlets, and encourage our neighboring states to take an impartial stance and look at this issue from the prism of the prevalent realities. The Islamic Emirate, as a responsible entity, assures its neighbors that Afghanistan will not cause any harm to its neighboring fellow states. The Islamic Emirate strives to achieve peace both in our country and in the wider region. However, the continued presence of American forces in Afghanistan is the prime reason for the instability of our country and meddling in the wider region. Our neighboring states must understand the threats that are posed to our region as a result of continued US-Nato military presence in Afghanistan. This military presence provides a pretext for further instability in the region, continues to arouse the sensitivities of the common people of this region, and for the Afghan people especially, this military presence is absolutely unacceptable.
We are unequivocally opposed to any American military presence in Afghanistan and we will continue our armed struggle until Afghanistan regains its full sovereignty and all foreign military forces leave our country. Afghanistan’s neighboring states bear a responsibility to take into account the legitimate aspirations of the people of this region and take steps to become aware of the realities of this war rather than simply rely on the information fed by western intelligence-controlled media outlets with the purpose of prolonging the instability of Afghanistan. Our neighboring countries should study the characteristics of the Afghan people and take steps towards building such a relationship with our nation that will prove fruitful to all parties and fulfill the legitimate aspirations of all people.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīhullah Mujāhid: “Clarification on the Martyrdom of 7 Children”
Sadly, 7 children were martyred with two others wounded Monday morning in explosives planted by the Arbaki militias in their abandoned post in Paktika province.
Two days back, the puppet militias locally known as Arbaki vacated one of their posts in Khair Kot district of the mentioned province. The said post had been planted by Arbakis with lethal and perilous explosives to which this morning the aforementioned children fell prey.
Unaware of their pitiable fate, the unfortunate children approached the certain post early this morning and got into it so as to retrieve some metal and other stuff left behind by Arbakis but were blown to pieces as the explosives detonated.
As stated above, 7 innocent children of one family were martyred on the spot, where two others took fatal injuries.
In order to pin its flagrant crime on Mujahideen, the enemy, as usual, fed some news agencies and media outlets with misinformation and gave the media false account of what had happened other than facts without clarifying the real situation.
One may take the lid off the enemy’s propaganda by simply inquiring of the locals in the vicinity about the incident who are conscious of every detail.
Similarly, the enemy attributed the stated incident to that of the roadside bombing, while the residents are well aware of facts and what happened.
We are equally grieved over the painful tragedy and share the great distress and sorrow of the family, on the other hand, strongly denounce the enemy’s cowardly act and propaganda against Jihad.

New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīhullah Mujāhid: “Dismissing the Irrational Media Reports Over Torching Houses”
Zabihullah Mujahid, the Islamic Emirate’s spokesman has rejected allegations of some of the media outlets about torching the houses of the Arbaki militias in Khas Kunar district of eastern Kunar province, saying Mujahideen were not involved in any such activity and considering the claims as false.
As per credible evidence and information received from the region, the number of the homes belonging to Arbaki militias was 10 which were left by their families unoccupied.
The locals, who had suffered a great deal at the hands of the Arbaki lapdogs, harassed, beaten and tortured by them, whose valuables and belongings as well as property had been forcibly grabbed, while their next-of-skins had been abducted by Arbakis exercising force, stood up to retaliate.
Similarly, the locals, the ordinary people who were not linked to Mujahideen in any way, turned to burning down the abandoned houses of their foes, the Arbaki militias due to personal enmity.
Our Mujahideen are, in no way, allowed to resort to burning the public places or homes; therefore, we strongly refute any involvement by the Mujahideen in the mentioned incident, and regard such claims and reports as tools of propaganda against the Mujahideen.
New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Mawlawī Jalāl al-Dīn al-Haqqānī: “Message to the Valiant Afghān Nation on the Occasion of Dr. Nāṣr ad-Dīn Ḥaqqānī’s Martyrdom”
Afghanistan’s Mu’min and Mujahid nation and the defeaters of the Crusaders,
Assalam Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuhu,
First of all I would like to congratulate the esteemed Amir ul Mu’mineen (hafidhahullah), the courageous Mujahideen and myself on the Martyrdom of a valiant and audacious Mujahid, Shaheed Naseeruddin Haqqani. May Allah (SWT) accept him as a Martyr and as a Truthful and Pious believer.
O Brothers! Martyrdom in the path of Allah is such a lofty state that the Messenger of Allah (SAW) with his sublime position wished to attain it and promulgated the blessed status of martyrdom in his narrations. Martyrdom is such a blessed state that only the most honest and truthful are blessed to attain this position. Martyrdom is a bounty which is bestowed upon the best of the Mujahideen and indeed martyrdom is the utmost objective of all Mujahideen who wish to attain the pleasure of their Lord by sacrificing their lives in His path and in return being awarded with the Gardens of Paradise.
O Muslim and Mujahid nation! Today as our courageous brothers are engaged in protecting our nation from the foreign occupiers, Allah (SWT) has in exchange for their martyrdoms and sacrifices turned this land into a historical battlefield in which we are being granted strategic victories against the aggressors. Such victories that our enemies, despite their technological and military capabilities, are greatly agitated, are at a loss on how to escape and have lost their status as a super power.
O Brothers! The path of jihad is a path of sacrifices and valor. The sacrifices of jihad began with the martyrdom of Hamza radhiallahu ‘Anhu in the historical battle of Uhud and has continued unabated for the past fourteen centuries. Shaheed Doctor Naseeruddin Haqqani, in campaigning for the supremacy of the Islamic government and in defending the freedom of his beloved nation, was also a traveler of this blessed path and reached the end of his journey by fulfilling his ultimate desire of martyrdom in the path of Allah (SWT). May Allah (SWT) accept his martyrdom.
Shaheed Naseeruddin Haqqani was neither the first martyr from our family nor will he be the last. In fact the entire Haqqani family is dedicated to jihad and martyrdom. Seeking martyrdom through the campaign for the supremacy of Islamic government and the defense of our beloved nation is the Haqqani family’s most ardent desire. I myself, upon hearing of the martyrdoms of our Mujahideen, am overcome with the desire to obtain this lofty status. I have spent a large part of my life wishing the hour when I might reach this lofty state. Alhamdulillah you and I are Muslim, and Muslims love to attain martyrdom as ardently as the non-believers love the comforts of this world.
O Muslim Afghans and beloved Mujahideen! Our valiant nation has for the past three and a half decades sacrificed in order to establish the supremacy of Islamic government in our land. Their gallantry and spilt blood to achieve this end are dearly precious to us. You and I should all respect their sacrifices. We can only respect their sacrifices and martyrdoms by working to bring about the implementation of Islamic government and by following the commands of the sublime Islamic Law. And by keeping our battle fronts united around the leadership of Amir ul Mu’mineen Mullah Muhammad Omar Mujahid, by obeying the commands of our leaders, and by working for the prosperity of our wronged nation.
O Brothers! The martyrdom of our Mujahideen in their fight against the aggressors is a sign of our victory and not of our defeat. Indeed the signs of our defeat will be our deviation from this path and our treachery towards the spilt blood. May Allah (SWT) protect us and all the Muslim Ummah from such deviations and splinterring.
New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan’s Zabīhullah Mujāhid: “Remarks Regarding the Baseless Report by ‘The Daily Beast’”
Yesterday ‘The Daily Beast’ newspaper, which pursues a malicious intelligence agenda and is run by famous intelligence agents, published a far from reality, purely propaganda based and fabricated report regarding the Islamic Emirate which stated that some leaders of Islamic Emirate had met in the Pakistani city of Islamabad, showed their inclination towards peace and other such nonsense…….
We reject every aspect of this report. The assertions cited by ‘The Daily Beast’ are contrary to the policy and manifesto of the Islamic Emirate and similarly the talk about conflict between the leaders of Islamic Emirate in also propaganda and devilish scheme of the said newspaper which has no substance. We urge all media outlets to be cautious of such pure propaganda which has no reality to it and is the work of intelligence agencies.
We have designated spokesmen and a dedicated website for our activities from where anyone can contact us to attain access to information. Attributing false statements to the Islamic Emirate and associating unknown figures with us violates the basic principles of journalism. In our view these are vengeful attempts by certain identified persons who wish to spread their own personal agendas through these reports and we ask all independent media outlets to refrain from publishing these baseless reports. We would also like to point out that ‘The Daily Beast’ has on several occasions published such baseless reports to advance their agendas. They also regularly attribute their statements to ‘Zabiullah’ so as to portray it to be me, Zabihullah Mujahid, the spokesman of Islamic Emirate. The truth is that neither I have ever spoken with this media outlet nor has any other official within the Islamic Emirate ever corresponded with them.
