Ramadan-should be month of peace and harmony

With commencing of holy month of Ramadan, almost countrymen are expecting peace and harmony and for the purpose eagerly waiting for the announcement from Taliban group. Couple of days back, President Dr. Ashraf Ghani while delivering speech to concluding sitting of the consultative Loya Jirga has not only requested ceasefire but even he announced release of around 175 persons convicted by courts in various terror and violent acts. He on such occasion asked Taliban leaders to choose a place for receiving these people. Similarly, former President Hamid Karzai since a long praying for peace and tranquility. He did everting under his capacity while running affairs of the country and at the moment he is the most vocal in favor of intra-Afghan dialogue, which is the sole way to resolve decades old conflict and hostilities. Likewise, is the views and wishes of almost religious-Jihadic leaders who also wants an end to turmoil and now in favor of broad based reconciliation in the motherland. No one can deny the fact that there are divisions on political issues in the country but there exists complete consensus and unity on the issue of violence, peace and reconciliation. A few individual just for meeting their nefarious designs are creating hurdles. But these few individuals are playing in hands of some external forces and at behest of these external forces, they are fueling tension and creating hurdles before the peace efforts. Over whelming majority of Afghanistan are Muslims and they are well aware that Islam is the religion of peace, patience and harmony. Islam doesn’t allow violence and aggression against any one. All Taliban leaders are genuine Muslims, even majority of them are highly qualified scholars and well aware about Quran and Ahadith. Now when the holy month of Ramadan commenced in all over Afghanistan, therefore, Taliban leaders needs to demonstrate-demonstrate their faith in Islamic obligations and norms-demonstrate patience and harmony for the war stricken countrymen who have been made fed up by prolonged wars and hostilities. It is the time for Taliban leadership to determine their faith in sovereignty and solidarity of the motherland as the United States has already made mind for pulling its troops out of Afghanistan. And the declaration of ceasefire in honour of holy month of Ramadan like of past year could be a stepping stone towards further boosting and strengthening of intra-Afghan dialogues, which is the sole way for declaration of country-wide reconciliation.
