Achakzai’s vicious statement
JAVAID BASHIR Mahmood Achakzai’s obnoxious, offensive and vicious statement against the solidarity of Pakistan must be condemned. His vitriolic outburst is absurd. He should stay away from KPK and its Afghan refugees policy. We have paid a heavy price of our Afghan Policy and still we have not learnt any lessons. We have hosted more than 30 million Afghan Refugees in country for last three decades. These refugees have abused our hospitality and caused severe law and order break down.
Our Armed forces are engaged in war against terrorism and are fighting terrorist outfits in North Waziristan. The success attained through Zarb-eAzb cannot be compromised by allowing any one to conspire against country. Does Mr. Achakzai know how much it costs everyday to feed and host these refugees? Our economy is unnecessarily burdened to accommodate them. Our fragile economy has been reeling for years due to providing hospitality to the thankless people. Afghan government must honour its obligations towards its displaced citizens and arrange for their return to homeland.
We strongly condemn Achakzai ‘s anti state stance and vitriolic outburst. He is adding fuel to the fire. Enough is enough, we must put our feet down to stop the country from bleeding any further. Time has come to say goodbye to the Afghan Refugees. If Achakzai has so much sympathy for them then he should accommodate them in his own backyard.
The international community and Afghanistan should honour their commitments. Terrorism has brought immense problems for us. We must consider our national interests rather following dictates of other powers and interest groups. Our Armed forces’ have make invaluable sacrifices to save country. We must keep pursuit of peace and impregnable defence of the country. Mr. Achakzai should refrain from airing his obnoxious views. —Via email
