New statement from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “Concerning the Creation of Ethnic Militias by the Kabul Administration”


During his most recent travels to some provinces, the head of the Kabul administration (Ashraf Ghani) tried to push idea to locals that the Mujahideen are waging a discriminatory war against a particular race or sect and there is an imminent threat against their lives and property. And under this same justification, he approved the creation of ethnic militias and military battalions and authorized the creation of a 500-man local militia in Bamiyan.

The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan considers such foreign and anti-national actions of the Kabul administration as repeat of the last gasp efforts of the former communist regime that founded Gelum Jum, Kehan, Jabbar and other militias, created military regiments based on race and paved the way for great atrocities, chaos, barbarity and slaughter. But despite birthing all this savagery, it harmed the communist regime more than assisting it or healing any of her wounds.

As the stooge Kabul regime finds itself at the end of its rope and is misleading the public in an attempt to salvage itself, it should understand that such anti-national moves that violate all accepted norms will not be of any benefit.

The Islamic Emirate once again makes it unequivocally clear that our operations around the country including in Malistan, Jaghuri and Khas Uruzgan are solely against enemy military formations. The local civilians are our fellow countrymen, the protection of their lives and wealth is the responsibility of every Mujahid of the Islamic Emirate. No harm has been inflicted on any civilian, home or area in these operations and neither are Mujahideen permitted to do such acts.

However, the circles that are trying to deceive the locals by stoking ethnic, sectarian or other discriminatory tensions, are promoting processes of raising racially-charged armies for the survival of the crumbling Kabul administration or are portraying Mujahideen operations and actions as targeting civilians, then we sternly warn them that the intelligence officials of the Islamic Emirate will monitor them closely for their treason and will answer them at an opportune time.

Through this statement, we want to assure our Hazara countrymen that no harm shall touch their lives, property and honor during these operations. If anyone has sons or relatives working in the military of the Kabul administration, their lives will be secured once taken out of the enemy ranks.

If any individual or institution tries to sow seeds of hatred among Afghans following the publication of this warning, then they will have no right of complaint.

The Islamic Emirate has ordered its Mujahideen to monitor all violators of this notification, detain them wherever found and hand them over to the courts of Islamic Emirate.
