Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan:: Message of Felicitation of Ameer al-Mu’mineen
on the Occasion of ‘Eid al-Fitr
Praise be to Allah, Who exalted Islam and
Muslims and debased polytheism and the polytheists. Peace be on the leader
of the Mujahideen, the noble of the Apostles and Messengers and peace be on
his descendants, companions and all those who follow his guidance.
Having said that, I would like to state:
The Almighty Allah says: “Say: Truly my prayer
and my service of sacrifice, My life and my death are (all) for Allah, the
Cherisher of the Worlds.” 6:162.
I extend my heart-felt felicitation to
all heroic Mujahideen, the pious people, the families of martyrs of the
sacred frontlines of Islam and to all Islamic Ummah on the occasion of the
Eid-ul-fitre and congratulate them for their having performed the sacred
obligation of fasting. I pray to Allah, to accept in His sight all the
worships and sacrifices that they offered. May Allah pass these days of
love, brotherhood and joy in an atmosphere of happiness, prosperity and
victory over the invading enemy. I congratulate you all for the historical
victories achieved in the honorable frontlines of Jihad this current year.
May Allah accept the martyrdom of the martyrs and the struggles of the
Mujahideen in this blessed and holy path.
Availing of this opportunity, I deem
it necessary to put forward the following points before you all:
a) I assure our brave people and
the gallant Mujahideen that the plans of global colonialism for occupation
of Afghanistan has faced failure because of your self-less sacrifices.
During the past eight years, NATO under the leadership of the militarists of
the Pentagon, implemented a policy of brutality and atrocity, hoping that
they will subjugate the brave people of Afghanistan by dent of military
power. They used their sophisticated and cutting-edge technology including
chemical weapons in order to achieve that end; employed hundreds of centers
of propaganda and spent billions of dollars to portray an image of their
military power in a palatable way and terrorize their counterpart
opposition. But all these anti-human activities could not give them success.
With the passage of time, the resistance and the Jihadic movement, as a
robust Islamic and nationalist movement, assumed the shape of a popular
movement and is approaching the edge of victory.
The invaders should study the history of
Afghanistan from the time of the aggression of the Alexander, to the Ganges
of the yore and to this very day and should receive lesson from it.
Still, if they are bent on ignoring the history, then they themselves saw
with their own eyes, the events of the past eight years. Have they
achieved any thing in the past eight years? Even if they are not ready to
review the loss and benefits of these years, at least, they should ponder
over the consequences of the extensive operations launched under the name of
Khanjar “sword” and the panther’s claw. What
did they achieve? Is this disgrace and historical defeat not enough for them
(to take lesson)?
Though the double-faced media has kept
their public ignorant of the facts but their government are well aware of
the ground realities—the huge casualties and the sagging morale of their
soldiers. The more the enemy resorts to increasing forces, the more they
will face an unequivocal defeat in Afghanistan.
It is clear from the statements of the
military sources of NATO and America and the information disclosed by
captured soldiers that material and life losses of the invaders are several
times higher than what they acknowledge. Any way, the policy which they have
adopted will only prolong the current crisis but will never solve it. This
is because the existence of foreign troops in Afghanistan and the invasion
is in itself an issue, not a solution—even a big issue in its own right.
The rampant corruption in the surrogate
Kabul administration, the embezzlement, drug trafficking, the existence of
mafia networks, the tyranny and high-handed ness of the warlords, and spread
and increase of the centers of obscenity being materialized as per the
previously contemplated plans, are part of the colonial ambitious and
conspiratorial accords. This has driven the people to face poverty,
starvation and unemployment to the extent that they were forced to sell
Despite the crimes of the invaders,
another brazen atrocity is that, that they imposed a corrupt and stooge
administration on the people once again by the pretext of the so-called
elections which were fraught with fraud and lies and which were
categorically rejected by the people. It is very natural that the gallant
and free people are not ready to accept the results of these illegitimate
elections. Therefore, first of all the issue of the existence of the
invading forces in the country should be solved and Afghanistan must find
its place as a sovereign country on the map of the world. The internal
issues among the Afghans can be solved but in circumstances of occupation,
(our) national and Islamic interests come under the shadow of the interests
of the foreigners and our national and Islamic interests readily fall prey
to the interests and conspiracies of global colonialism.
Our goal is to gain independence of the
country and establish a just Islamic system there on the basis of the
aspirations of the Muslim nation. We can consider any option that could lead
to the achievement of this goal. We have left open all options and ways
towards this end. However, this will only be feasible when the country is
free from the trampling steps of the invading forces and has gained
b) The Islamic Emirate of
Afghanistan wants that the true sons of this land should have participation
in the government and in the government-making, following the withdrawal of
foreign forces from Afghanistan– because the rehabilitation work, economic,
political , educational and cultural affairs of the country can never go
along way without participation of knowledgeable, professional and
experienced sincere Afghans. Fortunately, a great number of our independent,
professional, experienced Muslims cadres, whether they are inside the
country or outside, have not submitted to the current occupation, nor they
accept the administration brought about as a result of the occupation. They
support an independent, free and Islamic government in the country.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has
distinctive and useful plans for the future of Afghanistan under the shade
of the just social system of Islam after the withdrawal of the foreign
forces. They include rehabilitation of social and economic infrastructure,
advancement and development of the educational sector, industrializations of
the country and development of agriculture.
c) The Islamic Emirate of
Afghanistan calls on all those who work in the surrogate Kabul
administration and shore up the global colonialism by their being there to
stop opposing your religion, country and people. The foreign colonialists
take strength from your Afghan arm and continue their occupation of our
country. These brutal invaders have trampled down on all our Islamic values;
they work for dissemination and spread of Christianity under a previously
worked-out plan; they plunder our natural resources under one and another
name and put heavy burdens of loans on our country. The Islamic Emirate has
left door of safety open for whomever depart with the ways of betrayal and
treason with the country and people.
All should bear in mind that the current
popular Islamic revolution against the invaders is forging ahead like a
powerful flood. Any one who opts to resist it will himself be washed away.
Atrocity, torture, brutality, conspiracies, coalitions, the foreign forces
and mercenaries could not hurl stumbling blocks in the way of this robust
Jihadic movement. It is better to side with your people to fulfill the
obligation required by the belief and gain historical honor, particularly
the former Mujahideen who now work in the stooge administration should make
for their infamy by joining the ranks of Jihad and abandon the ranks of the
d) The Islamic Emirate (IE)
believes in social and internal reform as well as in positive initiatives in
the context of Sharia. IE is aware of the in-discrepancies. Therefore, it
obliges all Mujahideen to strictly observe the rules and regulations so that
all Mujahideen will continue to wage Jihad as sincere sons of the country
for the prosperity of the masses under the framework of Islamic Sharia.
Thus, they will become both true protectors of the frontlines of
independence and representatives of the fundamental wants of the people.
The Islamic Emirate considers the
purge of its ranks and self-accountability an everlasting and necessary
The enemy has faced defeat in the field
of the battle and it is not far way that it will swallow the bitter poison
of a complete defeat. But as a last tactic, it is trying to spread seed of
disunity and division among the nation to turn its defeat into victory.
Praise be to Allah, the High, that the enemy is facing a fiasco in its
hypocritical efforts. The Islam-loving and country-loving people consider it
a religious obligation to keep the unity and assist the Mujahideen. They see
independence of the dear country as their legitimate right and believe the
western media serves only as a loudspeaker of Pentagon. They will never be
misled by their fatuous propaganda. The sympathy, affinity and enchantment
of the people play a great role in the unprecedented advancement of the
Mujahideen. Praise be to Allah, the enchantment of people and their affinity
grows day by day. Therefore, the Mujahideen should not think themselves to
be a separate entity from the people. They should protect their property,
life and honor and stop those who, under the name of Mujahideen, want to
encroach on the property, life and honor of the people–readily by the
provocation of the enemy. Similarly, Mujahideen should focus on the Islamic
education of the masses, so that they would voluntarily participate in Jihad
in person and by wealth. The people should remain aware to avoid being
tricked by the empty bluffs of some military commanders or the statement of
a British military commander saying that we would remain in Afghanistan for
We would like to point out that
we fought against the British invaders for eighty years from 1839 to 1919
and ultimately got independence by defeating Britain. Today we have strong
determination, military training and effective weapons. Still more, we have
preparedness for a long war and the regional situation is in our favor.
Therefore, we will continue to wage Jihad until we gain independence and
force the invaders to pull out.
When we notified all regarding the
unprecedented momentum and impetus in the resistance in our previous
statement, they were not just propaganda-oriented empty words. All witnessed
the momentum in action. We warn once again that our ensuing aggressive
operations will be characterized by effective tactics which will enter a
phase where the enemy will have unparalleled casualties and constant
defeats, if God willing.
e) The Islamic Emirate of
Afghanistan wants to maintain good and positive relations with all neighbors
based on mutual respect and open a new chapter of good neighborliness of
mutual cooperation and economic development.
We consider the whole region as a common
home against colonialism and want to play our role in peace and stability of
the region. We assure all countries that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan,
as a responsible force, will not extend its hand to cause jeopardy to others
as it itself does not allow others to jeopardize us.
We would like to say, we are
victims of the black propaganda of the enemy media.
This has created doubts between us and a number of countries of the world.
They have wrongly depicted us as a force being against education and
women’s rights. They also accuse us of our being a threat to the
countries of the world. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan wants to clear
away all these doubts provided a conducive atmosphere is available. The
Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan calls on the public of the West not to be
deceived by the assertions of Obama, who says the war in Afghanistan, is a
war of necessity. The West does not have to
wage this war. This war, in fact, started for clandestine motives under
baseless reasons. The humanity, as a whole, suffers from its negative
consequences. The global economic meltdown, instability, lack of trust and
violation of international norms is the outcome of the baseless policies (of
The public of the West should also not be
deceived by the assertions of the General Secretary of NATO and British
Prime Minister who claim the war in Afghanistan is for the defense of the
West. Such deceiving and baseless utterances must not confuse you. These are
just demagogic efforts of your rulers aimed at justifying this unlawful and
long imposed war in contravention of all international principles.
No country in the world has right to
meddle in the internal affairs of its neighboring country according to the
modern international principles. The arrogant powers-that-be at the White
House and its British Ally should know their interference from thousands of
kilometers away is never acceptable to the countries of the region and can
never be tolerated. The plans of colonial expansionism which is under way in
the region under the notorious and unlawful slogan of war on terrorism is,
in fact, an endeavor against the universal human values, justice, peace,
equal distribution of resources and independence– an endeavor tainting the
true representatives of the aspirations of the people under one or another
name. All countries, particularly the Islamic countries, our neighbors, the
powerful countries, the movement of the non-aligned countries should feel
and fulfill their historical role.
I urge the Islamic Ummah, particularly
the Islamic and Jihadic organizations to remain aware of the conspiracies of
the enemy; abandon the internal differences and begin a concerted and
comprehensive struggle for the defense and freedom of the oppressed and
To end, I urge all God-fearing Muslims,
as they themselves share the joy and happiness of this occasion with their
families, should not forget the widows of the martyrs, orphans and mothers
who have lost their sons. They are the martyrs who laid down their lives
against the bloc of the infidels for the establishment of Islamic system.
Similarly, do not forget the bereaved families of those Afghan victims
including old men, young, women, children who have been martyred as a result
of the blind bombardment of the invaders and are no more among you.
Finally, I extend my felicitation to
you on the occasion of Eid-ul-fitre and wishing you independence.
praying for obtainment of independence and establishment of a complete
