KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): Presidential Spokesperson SediqSediqi on Saturday said some religious seminaries in neighboring Pakistaninfo-icon promoted extremism in Afghanistaninfo-icon and waged a propaganda campaign against Afghan security forces.

The reaction comes after Mullana Hamidul Haq, head of Pakistan Haqqania seminary, asked the Afghan government to surrender to the Talibaninfo-icon.

Haq stressed continuation of Jihadinfo-icon in Afghanistan and termed the Taliban as guardians of Pakistan frontiers.

Presidential Spokesperson Sediq Sediqi in a video clip said: “Pakistan often talks about playing a constructive role in the Afghan peace process but a group of religious scholars who we call themselves as father figures of the Taliban talk against our system. They promote extremism and Jihad and this is against international laws and norms.”

Sediqi said Afghanistan expected Pakistan to stop such seminaries from promoting hatred and extremism against Afghanistan and called such institutions as main factors behind extremism in Afghanistan.

He said the Afghan government had been optimistic that after peace agreement between the US and the Taliban, violence would decline in Afghanistan but instead violence increased against expectations.
