Aug 20, 2017 - 19:44

KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): The third death anniversary of Hashmat Khalil Karzai, a cousin of former president Hamid Karzai, was observed in southern Kandahar province on Sunday.

Held at the residence of the late Karzai in Karz locality of Dand district, his brother and deputy Foreign Minister Hekmat Khalil Karzai, Kandahar Governor Zalmai Weesa, Zabul governor Bismillah Afghanmal, tribal elders and local residents attended the anniversary. 


Hashmat Karzai, a strong supporter of the incumbent president during his election campaign, was killed in a suicide attack at his residence in Dand district in 2014.

Khalil Karzai said his brother was a kind person and always helped the people and worked for peace and stability.

He pledged to create a foundation in the name of Hashmat to complete his mission. The foundation would work on education, social, cultural and economic affairs. It would also help common people, he added.

Last year on his second death anniversary, Hashmat Khalil Karzai was awarded the Shaheed-i-Millat title by President Ashraf Ghani during an official ceremony at the Presidential Palace.
