MAZAR-I-SHARIF (Pajhwok): The people of Afghanistan have never recognised the Durand Line as official boundary since its inception till the date, says civil society activist on Saturday.

Addressing a seminar on ‘Durand an unacceptable line’ Civil Society Activist Akbar Bacha said Pakistani officials since the birth of Pakistan have been pushing Afghan governments to accept the Durand Line as permanent boundary between the two countries.

 “Governments on the both sides have lacked the authority to decide the fate of the Durand Lined because it was linked to the people living on its both sided,” he told the seminar which was attended by scholars, writers and youth.

Balkh University Lecturer Serat Noori drew government attention to irresponsible statements regarding the Durand Line. “It is Afghan government responsibility to react to inappropriate statements about Durand Line.”

Javed Wak, a writer, stressed over the revival and the philosophy of Loy Afghanistan. He asked media and civil society to play role in this campaign.
