Ex-Jihadi commander to launch parallel anti-insurgents drive
Haji Hazrat Ali, a former Jihadi commander and an MP has urged government to allow him launch a parallel anti-militant operation in order to restore peace in Nangarhar province.
According to a report published on Monday by Afghanistan’s Salam Watandar news, Haji Hazrat Ali believes that government is hesitant in taking on militants in some areas and therefore focusing on Khogyani and Hisarak districts.
He says that the situation would get normal within days if government allows him apply his plans.
“We give the government a limited time to allow us otherwise we would seal this city for three days and move towards Torkham until peace prevails or the government resigns”, Hazrat Ali is quoted by the news agency as saying.
The news agency citing reports further states that Haji Hazrat Ali has already consulted with hundreds of likeminded people and discussed ways and means to go ahead with his plans.
Haji Hazrat Ali claims that more than six hundred people have lost lives in the latest surge of insurgency and some 270 locals remain hostages, the report adds.
