Ghani warns against glorification of terrorists, saboteurs

Ghani warns against glorification of terrorists, saboteurs

KABUL (Pajhwok): The government would not allow anyone to call the killers of Afghans the angels of peace by exploiting the freedom of speech, the Presidential Palace said on Saturday.

A statement from the Palace said that the government respected the freedom of speech but would not let anyone glorify the killers of innocent women and children and other saboteurs.

“The terrorists, who inflict miseries on our people on a daily basis to please outsiders, deserve to be eliminated. Our security forces are legitimately fighting against these groups,” the statement added.

Afghan leaders, who respected all nations, were pained by disrespect to them, the statement said, adding no move against national figures was acceptable to the government and people.

The Presidential Palace advised the people and media outlets no to be influenced by the enemies’ propaganda aimed at sowing seeds of disunity among them at the critical juncture the country stood at.

However, the president’s office did not provide details about the killers and saboteurs. Recent social media reports quoted High Peace Council (HPC) member Abdul Hakim as describing Taliban the angels of peace.
