The President Office of Afghanistan, through a presidential decree, has proclaimed 29th of April, 2019 as a definite date for holding up the Consultative Loya Jirga for Peace. The core purpose of this Jirga will apparently be about hearing and receiving instructions and opinions of the delegations as well as seeking solutions to accelerate the peace process and translating peace guidelines for the government by the end of the Jirga.
The Media Office of Hizb ut Tahrir in Wilayah Afghanistan perceives that this Loya Jirga will be aimed at subsuming the treacherous Afghan leaders, who have been devastatingly excluded from the US-Taliban peace talks so far, by applying pressure over associated parties in order to help involve them in the peace process. On the other hand, Afghan leaders are trying to conceal the betrayals they have committed against the people of Afghanistan for more than half a decade, as by means of this Jirga, they ultimately seek to be endorsed as quasi champions.
We do not want to remind you of the very long history of the Loya Jirga, though over the past 18 years, we have witnessed how the so-called Loya Jirgas have repetitively ended in favor of the colonialists and occupation. As the Loya Jirga for Afghan Constitution in 2004 was aimed at drafting and ratifying a non-Islamic law imposed by the US on the people of Afghanistan. The Loya Jirga for Security Agreement with the US in 2013, in which, delegations, particularly bribes who scandalously received bribes from the US Embassy in Kabul, had assembled and called for signing of the disgraceful Bilateral Security Agreement (BSA) with the occupying Americans – as the prevailing government signed it on the very first day of its term. As for now, they once again are calling for a Consultative Loya Jirga for Peace in order to impose another colonial agenda over Afghan people.
On the other hand, Islam regards the Council ‘Shura’ for people’s affairs as a right of the people on their rulers. Therefore, such kind of Consultative Jirga’s have always been held up by puppets and treacherous rulers to legitimize their affairs, reflecting colonial agendas, and thwarting the real opinions of the people. Consequently, Hizb ut Tahrir / Wilayah Afghanistan once again reminds the zealous (Mujahed) people of Afghanistan not to be mischievously deceived by such Loya Jirgas nor be exploited through peace agendas being employed by the US and its puppets.
