The latest news is this that during a joint operation the occupying American and puppet forces raided a Madrassa in the Marki Khel area of Nangarhar’s Sherzad district. Students of knowledge and teachers were harassed. They were made the target of violence while more than half part of the Madrassa was blown up with bombs and demolished
It ought to be clear that this is not the first incident. Prior to this several such tragic incidents have come to occurr. To harass students during raids on Deeni (religious) Madrassas, to inflict violence on them, to spread fear and to martyr innocent students of knowledge has become a routine on behalf of the occupying and puppet forces. Some time ago in the Tatang area of Nangarhar’s Khogyano district, a Deeni Madrassa was demolished. Three students of knowledge were martyred and several students were wounded. Moreover approximately two months ago the occupying and puppet forces raided a Madrassa in the Nerkh district of the Maidan Wardag province. Sixteen teenage students of knowledge were mercilessly martyred while tragic incidents like this continue to come about in various areas here and there.
Apart from barbaric air strikes from the enemy on the homes and villages of citizens in every corner of Afghanistan and the irreparable damage to the life and wealth of defenseless citizens, to raid Mosques and Deeni Madrassas and carry out bombardment has become the occupying enemy’s routine and pastime. The invaders and their puppets are faced with the worst defeat in the battlefield. They have lost the ability to confront the complicated and dangerous military strategy of the Mujahidin. In Kabul, the recent consecutive attacks have unveiled the enemy’s face of helplessness, confusion and indiscipline before the world.
For this very reason, in order to take revenge from the defenseless and oppressed citizens, the merciless and cowardly enemy is conducting brutal attacks on them, is making villages and shops a target day and night. Besides this, in order to make apparent the filth of Kufr (disbelief) hidden within and enmity with Islam, the occupying enemy is particularly targeting Madrassas and Mosques. Outwardly it asserts that their battle against the Mujahideen is not because of Islam and Islamic Aqaid (beliefs) and views, that they are not against Islam and students of the Islamic sciences and the worshipers however in reality, this assertion of theirs is based on a lie; in the practical field they have proven this assertion of theirs as false. Now this reality is gradually becoming clear. To make Madrassas and Mosques a target and demolish them sends a clear message that they harbor perpetual enmity with Islam and Islam’s sincere followers, they are the perpetual enemy of the religious Muslims who read prayer in the Mosques and students of knowledge who obtain Islamic education in Deeni Madrassas.
The puppet rulers say, why do the students of Deeni Madrassas not obtain education inside the country? Why do they go outside of the country for the obtainment of the religious sciences? Inside the country the character of the puppet government is before the public. Under the supervision of the occupying colonial powers, the workers of the puppet forces target innocent students of knowledge in Deeni Madrassas in the darkness of the night or open day under the name of Mujahideen. They inflict violence on them, they take them into custody. Blowing up the walls of Madrassas with bombs, they demolish them.
It is proven from such shameless steps that the operations of the occupying enemy and puppet forces are ongoing to erase the Mujahid Afghan public’s Aqaaid (belief), religion and culture apart from maintaining occupation of Afghanistan.
