Taliban Vows Not To ‘Hold Any Grudges’ And Wants No More War

Published

The Taliban has vowed not to ‘hold any grudges’ or ‘revenge anybody’ as it pledged not to ‘repeat any conflicts’ again following their takeover of Afghanistan.

It comes after the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan two weeks before the US was set to complete the withdrawal of its troops after a two-decade war.

The terror group stormed across the country, capturing all major cities as Afghan security forces and their allies as well as President Ashraf Ghani ran for their lives.

Earlier, the Taliban declared an ‘amnesty’ across Afghanistan and urged women to join their government Tuesday August 17.

A Taliban spokesman also confirmed that women in Afghanistan will have the right to work and be educated up to the university level, while adding that women will be expected to wear the hijab and not the burka.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid told reporters gathered in Kabul that the group had ‘emancipated the country and made it independent again’ after ’20 years of struggle’.

He said: ‘Freedom and independence-seeking is a right of every nation. This was our right and we achieved this right and we would like to express our gratitude to almighty god to bringing us to this stage.’

Mujahid went on: We do not have any animosities with anybody and we would like to live peacefully. We do not want any internal enemies and any external enemies.’

He said the insurgents sought no revenge and that ‘everyone is forgiven’.

Many Afghans have expressed fear that the Taliban will return the country the brutal rule they used when last in charge, and foreign officials have said they will wait to see if the insurgents make good on their promises.
