The esteemed Leader of the Islamic Emirate, Sheikh-ul-Hadith Maulavi Hibatullah Akhundzada (may Allah protect him) has touched on several vital issues in his message, further explaining internal and external policy of the Islamic Emirate to the countrymen and the public of the world. Here, we quote some important points of the message as follow.
First: To the Mujahideen of the Islamic Emirate:
Jihad against invaders is a Divine obligation. It doesn’t have to do with one’s personal interests, nor can it be changed with a change in personal views of someone. Jihad is not an ambiguous chapter among the Sharia rules and the Islamic history that it can be started and stopped merely on the basis of personal ruling of a person.
Keep your resolve and fortitude ever high. Your best planning, firm determination and sacrifices have, with the help of the Almighty Allah, plunged the invaders and their supporters into jittery, foiling their conspiracies, rendering wave of their propaganda ineffective and futile.
You must be happy and should express gratitude that the Almighty Allah has chosen you in this critical time for protection of His religion and people. Jihad in the way of the religion and in the way of defense of the Muslims is one of the best deeds that the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) has called it the Peak of Islam.
Second: Regarding Prevention of Civilian Casualties and Good Conduct with the People:
Bear in mind prevention of civilian casualties when you make plan for Jihadic operation as well as during its implementation. Those operations that lead to the loss of life and property of people are not acceptable to us. Desist from carrying out such operations because harming life and property of people is against the rules of Sharia and the policy of the Islamic Emirate.
Adapt ever more leniency in your conduct with the Creation of God. The brutal conduct of the enemy with the believing people and the miserable prisoners of war never provoke you to resort to a retaliatory conduct but behave well with the prisoners of war of the enemy as based by the conduct of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him).
Third: For the Well-being of People:
We are committed to economic, educational and comprehensive development for our people with firm determination. The Islamic Emirate welcomes all processes of rehabilitation and considers support and protection of all kind of (rehabilitation and construction) activities in the light of its principles and bye-laws as an obligation. The Mujahideen should continue paving the way for religious and modern education and rehabilitation work as per the demand of the people.
Forth: To Invaders:
You would have learnt a lesson from your decade and a half long presence in the land of the Afghans! It is more appropriate that you make no more mistakes to extend your occupation.
Whenever your illegitimate occupation of Afghanistan comes to an end, the Islamic Emirate has a comprehensive policy to maintain constructive and good relations with you and the world including the neighbors as per the principles. Here, I would like to mention the (well-known) policy of the Islamic Emirate that we don’t want to intervene in the internal affairs of others and nor allow others to intervene in our internal affairs. Likewise, we don’t permit others to use the soil of Afghanistan against anyone.
Fifth: Regarding Political Solution:
By accepting the legitimate demands of the Afghan Mujahid people, the Americans themselves should resolve the issue through diplomatic means instead of confrontation with the Jihadic resistance. The occupation is the main obstacle in the way of peace. The solution of the Afghan issue through peaceful means is part and parcel of the policy of the Islamic Emirate, should the occupation come to an end. The Political Office has been given the task to find a peaceful solution.
The above points show that the current message of the esteemed Leader of the Islamic Emirate was as comprehensive as the previous ones, making it clear to all sides that the Islamic Emirate is a responsible, strong military and political force of Afghanistan and having legitimate Islamic and national motives.
Military confrontation of given invaders and their allies with such national and Islamic force ultimately results into failure and fiasco as substantiated by the past one and half decade. So, it is plausible that the invaders consider withdrawal of their troops and opt for a real solution of Afghanistan rather than destruction of the country.
