Post via Islamic Emirate October 8th 2018
Whereas the American invading forces have occupied the land and air sanctuaries of our country, by using all kinds of weapons and applying new techniques of killing, bombing, looting for creating human catastrophes. They are building even more prisons for Afghans who love Islam and their country. The sovereignty of our land is at stake as the privatization of the ongoing war by handing it over to a contract killer group, called Black Water, is under consideration. Therefore, to divert the attention of our people from this untoward situation, a new uproar under the disguise of parliamentary elections is launched, and the media supported and financed by the foreign occupiers is propagating for it incessantly.
We have observed several processes of elections during the previous seventeen years of foreign occupation and none of them have healed the pains of our people and land, rather all of them have resulted in jeopardizing our national interests and perpetuating the illegitimate foreign occupation by singing the notorious security agreement to deceive and mislead the Afghan masses.
The bogus process of elections in countries under occupation is conducted for the sole purpose of legitimizing stooges who are ultimately authorized by the occupying forces. In this way, the people are given a deceptive feeling of having free right casting their votes for the malicious purpose of minimizing their resentment against the foreign occupation.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan believes that the present circumstances of our country do not allow such election processes to take place from either logical or religious point of view and nor are they in favor of our broader national interests. Our own masses as well as the world should realize that more than half of the country is controlled by the Islamic Emirate whereas they exercise strong influence in the remaining areas. Therefore it is evident that these bogus elections will be exhibited only in provincial centers, while the activities of election and complaints commission will be directly monitored by the American ambassador and the final lists of candidates will be prepared by him. On the other hand, this process has turned into a complete public disgrace due to ethnic bigotries, fraud, open bargaining of votes and various other malicious conspiracies.
Therefore it is the demand of our faith and intuition that this process should be considered unreliable, reprobated and prevented from taking place.
The Islamic Emirate, while representing the people and as an emancipative force of the nation, considers this process as fake and a conspiracy to deceive the people and achieve the malicious interests of foreigners.
The Islamic Emirate calls upon the nation, for the sake of protecting the broader national interests and for the prevention of this significant and decisive process being used for the malicious objectives of foreign occupiers, to completely boycott the whole electoral procedure and not participate in it by denying its value and credibility.
Similarly we call upon all those candidates who are still free from the yoke of slavery that neither can our creed, country or the people can be served under the shadow of foreign occupying forces. Instead, your nomination and success directly supports the vicious objectives of American invaders by legitimizing their bogus procedures and conspiracies, which is indeed supporting them in killing the pious Muslims and destroying the country by extending the ongoing war. Therefore you should refrain from participating in this process due to your Afghan identity and perception.
The Islamic Emirate instructs all its Mujahidin to halt this American led process throughout the country by creating severe obstacles for it, while taking extensive and intensive care of civilian Afghan lives and their properties. Those people who are trying to help in holding this process successfully by providing security should be targeted and no stone should be left unturned for the prevention and failure of this malicious American conspiracy.
We reiterate and call upon the foreign invaders and the actual designers of these fake elections that the real solution of the ongoing Afghan crisis lies in the complete withdrawal of all foreign occupying forces and the restoration of a pure Islamic sovereignty herein.
Whosoever mull over other ways and means, can only keep the public opinion busy by their deceptive propaganda, and can never alter the destiny of our nation.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan
