The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said the Global Islamic Unity Forum (GIUF) in Malaysia has joined global Islamic organisations that condemned the ongoing war in Afghanistan and called for a ceasefire.
GIUF, a renowned Malaysian organisation that promoted unity, peace and trade between Islamic nations, shared its message with the Afghan Embassy in Kuala Lumpur on Oct. 28.
Condemning the escalation of violence, they appealed to all warring parties to end hostilities and avail themselves of the “historic opportunity” to advance an Afghan-owned and Afghan-led peace process in line with the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) 2018 Makkah Declaration.
“Keeping unity and resolving the problems and conflicts through dialogue and negotiation is the only right way to achieve peace and stability in Afghanistan,” the GIUF said.
This comes after Afghan religious scholars and Bangladeshi ulema also issued fatwas denouncing the war and calling it against Sharia.
