KABUL (Pajhwok): More than 300 religious scholars from different provinces attended a meeting in Kabul and condemned recent suicide attacks, urging the international community avoid using Afghanistan as contested zone.

Scholars from Nangarhar, Laghman, Kabul, Paktia, Badakhshan and Takhar provinces attended the gathering arranged in cooperation with the Islamic Revolution Movement of Afghanistan People.

At the conference titled “Public and Social Actions toward peace,” the participants discussed the current situation in the country, particularly recent security incidents in Kabul.

Sheikh Mohammad Noor, a religious scholar from Nangarhar, strongly condemned recent terrorist events in Kabul.

"The problems and challenges of the country cannot be solved through suicide attacks and explosions; the conflict is not internal but is managed and organized from outside of the country,” he said.

Noor believed if all religious leaders accepted responsibility, the war and violence would be over in the country.

Maulvi Rahimullah Azizi, a resident of Takhar province, said suicide attacks were un-Islamic and inhumane and must be stopped.

He said some people who had sold their souls were behind the bloodshed in the country and they were disguised as mullahs and clerics.

Azizi asked the scholars condemn such barbaric attacks in their sermons and make people aware of the conspiracy.

Maulvi Anayatullah Baleegh, a scholar from Pul-i-Khushti Mosque in Kabul, said those who shouted Allah-o- Akbar in suicide attacks and kill poor and innocent people were not Muslims because such things had no place in Islam.

At the end of the meeting, a resolution was passed and religious scholars asked the government to ensure peoples’ security and work more towards fulfilling their responsibilities in this regard.

The resolution asked people, political parties and civil society to corporate cooperate with religious scholars in order to ensure peace in the country.

The religious scholars also asked the parties to the Afghanistan conflict to end the war and contribute to peace and security in the country.
