Jamiat-e-Islami Suspends 7 Members For Making ‘Wrong Moves’

Jamiat-e-Islami announced the suspension of seven members including Waqif Hakimi, Enayatullah Shadab and Abdul Sattar Murad of the Leadership Council of the political party on Thursday.

The members were let go “in line with the reforms and with the aim of ending the abuse of the party’s name and logo,” for making the “wrong moves” and conspiring within the party.

The decision was made in consultation with senior members, a day after several members of the party’s Leadership Council, including Atta Muhammad Noor, removed Salahuddin Rabbani, the executive chairman of the party.

The political party said that there had been a number of domestic and foreign conspiracies within their ranks as these people had made “inappropriate deals.”

In their statement, the party said there had been a number of domestic and foreign conspiracies against them since the 2001 Bonn Summit.

The party said the “serial assassinations of prominent figures of the party” including former leader and Afghan president Burhanuddin Rabbani, along with the “attempts to weaken and marginalize it through bribery and dealing with its affiliated figures” were attempts at weakening the party.

As a result of this strategy, a number of people affiliated with the party “have been deceived.”

Jamiat-e-Islami added it has begun work on emerging as an active political opponent to the government and would introduce an improved committee in line with the party’s principles and Code of conduct.

They also announced the formation of an independent, non-governmental negotiating team to actively participate in the intra-Afghan peace process.
