KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Thousands of people, coming all the way from various districts, on Friday held a gathering in the capital of southeastern Khost province, vowing to frustrate attempts at derailing the current system.

The gathering at the football ground in Khost City was attended by tribal elders, religious scholars, elderly people and the youth from the provincial capital and all districts of the province.

Addressing the participants, university teacher Amir Baheer said anti-government political alliances were being formed at the behest of foreign actors who did not want a stable and durable system in Afghanistaninfo-icon.

“We support the system and oppose those who are creating hurdles and hatching plots against the government,” he said.

Another speaker, Mohammad Khan Niazi, said the real enemies of Afghanistan were those Afghans who worked for their own interests against the national interest and those who created problems for the government under various pretexts.

“Have you ever seen our disgruntled brothers going to the home of a poor person to ask about their problems,” he said.

Another tribal elder, Gul Nawaz, said the people of Loya Paktia, especially Khost, supported the unity government and they would not allow anyone to overthrow it.

He said they would stand against all anti-government alliances and groups who wanted to weaken or overthrow the system.

Religious scholar Mualvi Qadirullah called upon the Afghans to strike unity in their ranks and put aside their differences. “The Afghan societyinfo-icon should be ashamed of their differences. Come and end differences in order to build a society and create jobs for people to work for their country’s rebuilding.”
