The other day, a delegation of prominent Pakistani scholars, led by Maulana Fazlur Rahman, the leader of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, arrived in Kabul to discuss the enhancement of bilateral relations and the resolution of mutual issues.
Similar to the Islamic Emirate’s consistent advocacy for peace, security, and justice, they have demonstrated through their actions that they are a reformed, compassionate, and benevolent Islamic movement. Furthermore, they have consistently expressed their support for neighboring countries and conveyed the message that their land poses no threat and there will be no unnecessary interference in internal affairs.
Concurrently, the Islamic Emirate also urges neighboring, regional, and global nations to refrain from utilizing their land against them, interfering in their internal matters, or violating their rights. This approach reflects the true Islamic policy and embodies good neighborliness, ensuring the safety of bilateral relations for our country as well as neighboring and regional nations.
Pakistan holds the distinction of being our neighbor with whom we share the longest border, numerous relations, and commonalities. Hence, it is imperative for us to maintain good relations and recognize that we mutually depend on each other. There are advantages and disadvantages that we share in many aspects.
All prise belongs to Allah almighty, the Islamic Emirate has consistently adhered to the principles of good neighborliness. However, regrettably, various issues persistently arise from their side. At times, disputes over hypothetical boundaries surface, trade-related problems emerge, causing substantial financial losses during the fruit and vegetable seasons. They also intermittently obstruct our roads and subject travelers to harassment. They have initiated stringent passport and visa regulations, even denying visas to Afghans, causing significant difficulties for the people. Additionally, their territory accommodates Daesh Khawarij and resistance rebels who exploit the situation.
Furthermore, it is their customary practice to mistreat Afghan refugees, using them as a means to exert pressure on the Afghan government. Presently, they have intensified their efforts to deport and harass refugees during this harsh winter. Over the past two months, they have already deported more than four hundred and sixty thousand (460,000) Afghan refugees, and this process continues unabated with hundreds of families returning to the country daily. While the return of refugees can be seen as positive, forced deportation is an injustice.
Actions should be taken based on the prevailing circumstances and available resources. The forced expulsion of refugees during winter, when opportunities are scarce, is truly unjust. Moreover, the arrest, imprisonment, torture, and extortion of money from refugees on various pretexts is a condemnable act, which ultimately reflects their lack of capacity.
The Prime Minister and his political deputy held separate meetings with the Pakistani scholars, engaging in comprehensive discussions regarding the plight of refugees. They reiterated the importance of resolving all issues through dialogue and emphasized the significance of maintaining mutually beneficial relations between both countries.
In any case, the resolution of these problems necessitates dialogue and understanding. If Pakistan genuinely desires to address these issues, it is an achievable task. Through dialogue, everything can be resolved. Pakistan should adopt a policy based on common interests with Afghanistan, safeguarding the interests of both nations and thwarting the enemies’ plot to spread hatred. This endeavor only requires honesty, sincerity, and commitment. After a prolonged war, the Islamic Emirate reached a conclusion through negotiations with the United States.
As Pakistan is a Muslim country and shares numerous commonalities with us, our problems are not deeply rooted; they are temporary and artificially created by Pakistan. They have the power to resolve them once again if they choose to do so, but it necessitates commitment and conviction.
Now that the delegation of Pakistani scholars has arrived, they should convince their leaders and accurately convey and explain the message of the Islamic Emirate. Both Afghanistan and Pakistan are Islamic countries, and the scholars hold esteemed positions here. If they utilize their positions effectively, they can make a significant impact. They should work towards resolving conflicts between people, openly addressing any concerns, and providing reassurance.
It is crucial for Pakistani scholars to first comprehend the situation, ascertain the depth and causes of the problem, and then make earnest efforts to mend and mediate these strained relations. They need to be cautious so that Pakistani politicians do not exploit them for their own interests and manipulate their message.
If Pakistani scholars demonstrate sincerity, they can certainly restore the strained relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan. If politicians remain unconvinced and unwilling to accept the matter, the entire nation stands with the scholars, particularly Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, as they hold significant influence over the people. They should exert pressure on their politicians through public support, compelling them to overcome difficulties, resolve all problems, and engage in meaningful dialogue with the Islamic Emirate. It is crucial for them to adopt a new policy based on common interests and genuinely uphold the principles of brotherhood and good neighborliness.
Furthermore, the arrival of Pakistani scholars holds another great benefit, as they will carry the lesson and message from Afghanistan that Islamists can govern more effectively than anyone else. The victory of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is a source of pride and success for all Islamists worldwide. Therefore, the presence of scholars from the Islamic world is of utmost importance for the prosperity of the Islamic Ummah. It is imperative to invite Muslim scholars from across the globe to Kabul.
