Hamed Karzai:

Pakistan nation is our brothers, ISI the cause of problems

The former Afghan President Hamid Karzai said Sunday that the Pakistani civilians are the brothers of Afghan people but criticized the country’s strong military intelligence – Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) for interfering in internal affairs of Afghanistan.

He said the Afghan people should remember that the Pakistani civilians are their brothers and thanked the Pakistani people for providing shelter to thousands of Afghan refugees during the civil war.

Karzai was speaking during a ceremony to commemorate the 4th assassination anniversary of former Afghan President and High Peace Council Chief Burhanuddin Rabbani.

In regards to the assassination of Burhanuddin Rabbani, Karzai said those who were against peace and stability in Afghanistan planned and carried out the attack on Rabbani.

According to Karzai, a grant meeting (Loya Jirga) was due to be organized on peace process in Afghanistan before Rabbani was assassinated.

He insisted that the attack was carried out to sabotage peace process and destabilize the country.

Rabbani was assassinated by a suicide bomber who had disguised himself as a peace messenger, representing the Taliban group.

The attack was carried out inside his residence in capital Kabul on the evening of 20th September 2011.

No group including the Taliban militants claimed responsibility behind the attack with both the Taliban and the notorious Haqqani terrorist network rejecting role in the attack.

However, the Afghan officials insisted that the assassination plot was organized by the Taliban’s council – the Quetta Shura in Pakistan.
