Muslim clergy denounce Taliban for its terror tactics

Syed Akbar
Hyderabad, May 1: City Muslim scholars on Monday urged the Afghanistan government to permit the Indian Central Reserve Police Force to provide exclusive security cover to Indians working in reconstruction projects in the war torn country.
About 100 Muslim scholars held a meeting in the city to condemn the killing of telecom engineer K Suryanarayana by Taliban militants in Afghanistan. The meeting unanimously passed a resolution appealing to Afghan President Ahmad Karzai to permit CRPF personnel to be stationed in Afghanistan to provide exclusive security cover to Indians employed in the reconstruction work there.
The scholars have also appealed to the Indian government to take up the issue of security of Indian workers with Afghan government on a priority basis. And if the Afghan government failed to permit CRPF cover to Indians, the Indian government should not participate in the reconstruction work there, in protest.
"We submitted a memorandum to the Afghan President when he visited Hyderabad last month. We brought to his notice the lack of security to Indian working in Afghanistan," All-India Religious Leaders' Association president Peerzada Syed Shabbir Naqshbandi said.
Naqshbandi chaired the meeting of city scholars held at his residence. Later, copies of the resolution were faxed to the offices of Afghan President, Indian President and Prime Minister.
"Talibans have brought a bad name to Islam and Muslims because of their evil actions including killing of innocent people. Suryanarayana had nothing to do with the Afghan politics. He is just an ordinary employee engaged in reconstruction of the war torn country. The thoughtless actions of Talibans will only create communal discord in a secular country like India. In the larger intests of peace and communal harmony, Talibans should desist from terrorism," the meeting resolved.
