After Trump’s envoy, Zalmay Khalilzad, heaped praise on Pakistan for facilitating talks between the US and the Afghan Taliban on 17 January 2019, General Qamar Javed Bajwa proudly assured him of “continued efforts for bringing peace and stability in the region.” The arrogant US has been brought down from demands, scorn and scolding to praise, smiles and handshakes because it is staring at complete, humiliating withdrawal from Afghanistan. The disruptive US presence in our region has been shoved to the door by a poorly armed but highly determined Afghan resistance. So, there is certainly no pride to be had in granting the US a way back in Afghanistan, through facilitating Afghan peace talks. Facilitating permanent sanctuary for the US private military and military at our gates is far from a formula for peace and stability for the region. The US presence has been the head of the snake of terrorism in the region and will always remain so. It is the US regional presence that allowed the establishment of the Raymond Davis network that has bombed and assassinated many, so that the US could underline in our blood its false claim that her war on terror is our war. It is the US regional presence that ensured the establishment of the Khulbashan Yadev network within Afghanistan so that India could rise in its regional mischief. And it is the continued US regional presence which will allow the US to directly supervise the further rise of India as the undeserving regional hegemon.
O Muslims of Pakistan!
The situation is ripe to shove the battered and unsteady US firmly out of the door, but the current military and political leadership of Pakistan is striving to turn certain retreat into permanent residence for America. The myth of US invincibility has been smashed to smithereens by men of mountains, goats and cheese that sought dignity in Islam, fighting the aggressor and depending on Allah (swt) alone. The fallen US lies bleeding and wounded in plain view of the world and the stench of its blood will certainly draw many others to maul it. Rather than allowing the patching up of its wounds and lifting it back onto its feet, it is upon us to ensure the hasty and complete exit of the US. Let us demand the end of facilitation of Afghan peace talks so that the US dies its own death in the graveyard of the empires. Demand the severing of intelligence sharing with the US so that the US is blind whilst facing the advancing, relentless Afghan resistance. Demand the severing of the air and land supply lines so that the US is starved to the point that its own troops scream for withdrawal. And let us demand first that which will make all of the above possible, Nussrah from our armed forces for the advocates of the Khilafah (Caliphate) for the re-establishment of the Khilafah on the Method of Prophethood.
Allah (swt) said, وَلَا تَكُونُوا كَالَّتِي نَقَضَتْ غَزْلَهَا مِنْ بَعْدِ قُوَّةٍ أَنْكَاثًا “And do not be like she who untwisted her spun thread after it was strong.” [Surah An-Nahl 16:92]
