Ahmad Fahim Kohistani, representative of the Dawat-i-Islami party, said that no one would be allowed to observe the anniversary of a man who killed millions of Afghans.

“Mujahideen announced a general amnesty for all Khalq and Parcham supporters so they can regret their past, but they again tried to reopen their past philosophy,” he said.
