Taliban wouldn't last a month without Pakistan support: Ghani

AMRITSAR, INDIA: Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said on Sunday that the Taliban insurgency would not survive a month if it lost its sanctuary in neighbouring Pakistan, urging its neighbour to take on militant groups on its soil instead of giving Kabul financial aid.

Ghani’s remarks, made at an international conference in the northern Indian city of Amritsar not far from the border with Pakistan, suggested tensions were rising with Pakistan after Ghani attempted to improve relations with Islamabad when he took office in 2014.

Size of Delhi, Kabul missions fails to lift ties

Pakistan said while violence had increased in Afghanistan , blaming another country for it didn’t help.

Violence has spread around Afghanistan and the Taliban’s ability to conduct coordinated high profile attacks in the capital Kabul has piled pressure on Ghani’s Western-backed government to provide better security to a war weary people.

Last year, Afghanistan suffered the highest number of civilian casualties and military related deaths in the world, Ghani told the Heart of Asia conference aimed at getting regional players together to help stabilise his country.

“This is unacceptable… Some still provide sanctuary for terrorists. As a Taliban figure said recently, if they had no sanctuary in Pakistan, they wouldn’t last a month,” he said.

Analysts say Pakistan has historically backed the Afghan Taliban as a hedge against the influence of arch-rival India, with whom Pakistan has fought three wars, in its backyard.

Pakistan denies this and instead said it is itself a victim of terrorism and that fighters of the Tehreek-e-Taliban, one of the main groups carrying out attacks inside Pakistan, were operating from Afghanistan.

Pak-Afghan relations and reprisals

Sartaj Aziz, Pakistan’s top foreign policy adviser, said it was true that there had been an upsurge in violence in Afghanistan. “We need to have an objective and holistic view rather to blame one country,” he told the conference.

The number of people displaced by conflict in Afghanistan this year has surpassed half a million people, the United Nations reported last month, the highest number since it began compiling such statistics in 2008.

On top of the Taliban, Islamic State has claimed responsibility for attacks targeting minority Shias in Afghanistan where sectarian violence has been rare.

Ghani said there were 30 militant groups identified by the UN that were trying to establish a base in Afghanistan.

“I don’t want a blame game, I want clarifications on what is being done to prevent the export of terror,” Ghani said, calling it an undeclared war on Afghanistan.

“We thank Pakistan for their pledge of $500 million assistance for reconstruction of Afghanistan. I hope you use it to fight terrorists and extremists in Pakistan.” Pakistan had made the pledge earlier this year.

Pakistan’s hand in the rise of international jihad

Ghani’s remarks, the strongest in recent months, come as India has simultaneously mounted pressure on Pakistan to end what it too calls cross-border terrorism in the disputed territory of Kashmir.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi said regional players had to act against not only the militants but their sponsors. “It must be backed by resolute action. Not just against forces of terrorism, but also against those who support, shelter, train and finance them.”

Islamabad has rejected the Indian allegations and said it was ready to hold talks with India on the dispute over Kashmir, but no talks are planned with Aziz while he is in Amritsar, Indian officials said.

If i were PM of Pakistan, i would have asked for a full refund from namak haramghanistan of previous donations & adding that sum to the recent 500Million dollars & built a wall bigger than The Great Wall of China between Pak & Namakharamghanistan with that money to contain terrorists in that land locked Hell hole called Afghanistan.

They really need to understand that harboring choice-proxies can never work. It is either none or all !

Pakistan cannot commit suicide by giving up on its influence (how little it may be) when the counter proxies are being harbored and nurtured left right and center in Afghanistan

Having read quite a few comments around the forum, I really want to set the record straight about Afghanistan, Jihad, Taliban, and the Afghan jihad. Much of this is already known in Pak Army circles, but I don't understand why so much misinformation still exists.

The Afghans by their very history, culture and nature, are extremely headstrong, brave, and independent people. They are warriors at heart, and many of them are also staunch Muslims. All these attributes mean when the Russians invaded Afghanistan, they didn't just sit around waiting for US aid to flow in. This is the story I have heard of the very beginning of the Afghan jihad.

A group of brave Afghans isolated a small number of Russians, and using bare hands and rusted iron swords overpowered them and took away their weapons. These are the true beginnings of the Afghan Jihad. With this victory under their belt and confidence increased in Allah's help, they went on to form a stiff resistance.

From a purely materialistic perspective, it seems far fetched to claim the Afghans could have succeeded in pushing Russia back on their own. In reality, as the resistance proceeded, they got a lot of outside help. But it would be equally dishonest to claim that the Afghan Jihad would not have continued had such help never materialized in practice. The Afghans simply aren't the type of people to back down. Enslavement under foreign occupation is unknown to their psyche.

Fast forward 20 years, and now you see one Afghan faction, the Taliban, clashing with a host of other Afghan factions. Towards the end of the Taliban rule, these rag tag militias joined together in the form of Northern Alliance. The origins of Taliban are as humble, and as much rooted in self-reliance, desire for a change towards the better, and staunch belief in Allah, as the original Afghan Jihad was.

Circa 1994, Mullah Omar, an Afghan Jihad veteran, was a student in a medressah in Afghanistan. Here is the story I have heard. He was conscious of the bloodshed, looting, and war-mongering going on around him. In his heart, the desire to help his fellow Afghans and Muslims burnt bright. And literally one day this bright fire in his heart led him to start exhorting his close friends and associates to join together and form a resistance. This is literally the genesis of the Taliban. It is only later, after hard earned successes on the battlefield, that the Taliban came on the Pak Army's radar. Just as it would be dishonest to say the Afghan Jihad would not have continued without America's help, it is equally dishonest, a perversion of reality, and a slap on the face of Afghan valor and bravery to say the Taliban would not continue without Pakistan's help.

So what are some logical reasons contributing to continued Taliban resistance in Afghanistan? The first and foremost reason is Taliban infiltration into Afghan army ranks to receive the same world class training which the Americans have imparted on the regular Afghan army. In the international diatribe against Pakistan, this is a fact that is completely overlooked. The fact of the matter is, all these years where they have been proudly 'nation building' in Afghanistan and spending billions of dollars, they have infact been training and arming their own worst enemy. The Taliban today stands as a better trained, better armed, and better motivated force thanks to the painstaking efforts of the Americans.

This angle of the picture is horrifying in its implications. The Taliban haven't simply received training. The trained Taliban have now started imparting their knowledge to other Taliban. Recent videos of Taliban training camps show recruits going through elite training in movements, weapons firing, physical conditioning, and small scale tactics.

It is unfortunate then, that Americans resort to the easy approach of making a whipping boy out of Pakistan, while hiding their own criminal negligence. I hope this piece gives some insights to our forum members about who the real culprits of the Afghan debacle really are.
