JUI-S chief slams attack on Afghan seminary as barbaric

National

April 5, 2018

NOWSHERA: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Sami (JUI-S) chief Maulana Samiul Haq on Wednesday termed the massive airstrike on a religious seminary in Kunduz in Afghanistan as an act of barbarism.

He said that the attack on religious scholars, seminary students and civilians was a sheer act of terrorism and an attack on education. The attack was continuation of policies of US President Donald Trump, he said, adding, the US president was spearheading the 'crusade terrorism' by attacking innocent Muslims and religious seminaries.

Maulana Sami condemned the airstrikes on the religious school and urged the organisations working for human rights and Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) to highlight the issue and bring those responsible for the inhuman act to justice.

The JUI-S chief said such incidents were a threat to international peace, adding the US was trying to sabotage the peace in Muslim counties and create civil war like situation there. He questioned the 'silence' of 'so-called human rights organisations over the murder of innocent students.
