Bangladeshi scholars, elders and the muftis called on both warring parties in Afghanistan to stop the killing of Muslims and innocent people as the violence was against shariah texts and Islamic teachings.
The scholars attended the session on “Call for Peace in Afghanistan” held on Sunday in the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka.
They issued a statement emphasising the prohibition of war and the killing of Muslims and innocent people in Afghanistan. They also expressed their wholehearted support for the peace talks in Doha.
Calling for an immediate and permanent ceasefire, the scholars said both sides were “Muslims and brothers” and requested an end to the ongoing attacks for them to build trust.
The Afghan Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed its gratitude for the issuance of the declaration of the fatwa by the scholars and reiterated the reduction of violence and ceasefire as an important condition for the success of the peace talks.
