Post via Islamic Emirate
Recently a group of UN experts have said in a report that there are 45000 Mujahideen fighting against the Kabul administration in Afghanistan and between 20 and 25 percent of them are foreign Mujahideen. But instead of mentioning 20-25 percent foreign Mujahideen, some pro-western media outlets have gone a step ahead by claiming there are 20000-25000 foreign Mujahideen. First of all, it is important to mention that this report has been prepared on the bases of inaccurate information and for political motives which has no reality. The purpose of this report is to obtain some malicious political objectives. One of them being creation of fictitious fear in the region and the world as a whole.
All know that from past few months, some western media outlets are making fanfare of the issue of existence of Al-qaeda and Daesh (ISIL) in Afghanistan. On the bases of such report, the invaders want to justify their presence in Afghanistan. Furthermore, they want to intimidate or pressurize neighboring countries of Afghanistan i.e. China and Russia. Similarly, they want to show the world that foreign Mujahideen are fighting in Afghanistan, so they will neither support the current Islamic and national resistance against foreign occupation nor show sympathy with them. Thus, they expect them to close their eyes on atrocities committed by invaders like civilian casualties and blind bombardments. By leveling such claims, they also want to give courage to morale sagging soldiers of the Kabul Administration that you are not fighting against Afghans rather fighting against foreigners. But the Afghans see everything with their own eyes and know that realities are contrary to these claims.
In fact, the Islamic Emirate does not need recruitment from others for the Jihadic resistance against foreign troops and their domestic stooges. The majority of Afghan nation are standing by the Islamic Emirate. They always insist for recruitments in the ranks and files of the Islamic Emirate due to Islamic obligation and love for freedom. Whereas, the Islamic Emirate only recruits them on the bases of needs.
We have said time and again that the Islamic Emirate is an Islamic and national force, struggling to end occupation and establish an Islamic system. On the bases of its policy, it neither uses its soil against others nor does it allow others to interfere in our internal affairs. But, it is important to say that such baseless allegation and reports makes the issue of Afghanistan further complicated. The invaders deliberately want to distract the attention of the world from the real solution of the issue. The invaders and their foreign and domestic Allies should know that these failed and illegitimate tactics are not the solution of the issue of Afghanistan rather it shows their failure and jittery.
