Skepticism over US-Taliban Talks at Doha
There is a wide skepticism over the present US-Taliban talks taking place in Doha. As per people, Taliban seek international gurantors of US troop withdrawal. However, they have failed to provide any guarantee that after the US troop withdrawal, Taliban will honor their side of the agreement.
Expressing confidence that Taliban will deceive and will not honor its commitments once the US troops leave Afghanistan, Col. Rahman Rahmani in one of his tweets said, “People who know Islam are aware of KHID’A (deceit), a tactical word that can legitmate Déjà vu, all over again. Muslims are allowed to not adher to agreements they sign with infidels they are in fight. Based on this, Taliban Terrorists can deny any agreement at any time and THEY WILL!”
Despite, these peace talks, Taliban continues to kill civilians through continuous spate of bombings. It demonstrates the armed groups disregard for human lives.
It is learnt that Taliban is sending criminals, drug addicts to kill civilians. As per a video circulating on the social media, two Taliban Terrorists were arrested by Afghan security forces during their attack on Badghis province. Both drug addict Terrorists confess that “Mullah Noor Afghan and Ishaq Pahlawan ordered them to kill whoever they saw.”
As per people, this is not Jihad. This is clear terrorism.
