Post via Islamic Emirate
The ascetic of our time and epitome of strong-will and steadfastness, the late Amir ul Mumineen Mullah Muhammad Omar Mujahid (may Allah illuminate his grave and grant him residence among the Prophets in Jannat ul Firdaus) launched the Islamic Movement of Taliban to eliminate Fasad (corruption) which had plagued our beloved homeland and betrayed the goals of our sacred Jihad against the Soviets. This pure fight salvaged the assets of our country that remained and safeguarded the life, wealth and honor of this valiant nation.
Elimination of corrupt fragments lurking in our society is the biggest guarantor of existence and advancement of this Mujahid nation while leaving them untouched and allowing their growth is without a doubt the biggest existential threat for Jihad and the pure Mujahidin.
If on one side the Taliban are engaged in historical lopsided confrontation against the invaders and their stooge regime, on the other it must begin taking steps to maintain their own unity and stop the spread of anarchy and corruption at the hands of bandits, kidnappers and rebellious elements.
With the selection of the new Emir of Taliban, these elements propped up by the enemies of Islam found it to be an opportune time to launch a psychological and media war against the Mujahidin, falsely attributing this holy Jihad to others, slandering the new Emir with lies and sowing seeds of division and mistrust among them.
Some of these elements are past figures from the slander of whom not even the shield of this Ummah Mullah Muhammad Omar Mujahid (RA) was saved while others are bandits and kidnappers united under the banner Daesh in small pockets around the country who are directly sponsored by the intelligence agencies of Kabul, America and others, a fact which is not hidden from anybody observing this phenomenon. The same accusations levelled against the current Jihad by the Kabul regime are also echoed word for word by these same groups.
The enemy which is struggling for air from the Jihadi onslaught under the unified leadership of Taliban is looking for ways to ease this pressure by creating cleavage in the ranks of Taliban and dividing the savior movement of this nation (Taliban) into many fighting factions. The preservation of unity of ranks is not only critically important for the Taliban but it also holds crucial existential value for the Afghan nation and the entire Muslim Ummah because unity entails victory, independence, security, peace and prosperity. Allah forbid, if the this sole home (Islamic Emirate) of the oppressed miserable Afghan nation were to split and divide into many groups then the hopes of our martyrs, injured, widows, orphans and imprisoned will be betrayed and struggle for enforcement of a Shariah system lost.
Therefore just as it was a religious obligation upon the Mujahidin to combat the previous prevalent corruption so too is it a binding duty upon the new generation to follow the footsteps of the founder of the Islamic Emirate so that this oppressed Mujahid nation is safeguarded from all harm and provided with a peaceful and prosperous life.
The Taliban must immediately begin taking effective steps against Daesh gunmen, kidnappers, Arbaki militias and rebellious elements alongside combatting the occupation and its lackey forces because if this poisonous plant is left untouched than naturally it will take deep roots and its removal will become ever more challenging. It does not matter whether these people are Afghan or not but what is important to know is that their corruption is far greater because they can prove to be the biggest threat to the establishment of an Islamic system and a peaceful Afghanistan!
