H.E Khalifa said:
The people of Faryab, like other Afghans, participated in winning the country's freedom, and the heroism and sacrifices of Mujahideen will be part of the golden pages of history. The invaders tried to separate our people, create hatred and distance; Because they were afraid of our unity, but Praise be to Allah that this unity, which was based on faith and belief, remained firm; Because a poor nation defeated the arrogant and powerful armies of the world, we defeated the invaders with unity. This is what the Almighty has blessed us, an Islamic system, the preservation and survival of which is ours and yours religious duty.
H.E Khalifa mentioned the hard days of Jihad and said: My mother wanted to open the coffin to see her son for the last time. I told her that: Mother! Your son is not in a situation to be recognized. These hardships weren’t only on us, this mujahideen nation has experienced many painful stories of different families. If we forget that blood and sacrifices, we will have committed betrayal and the Lord will punish us severely.
H.E Khalifa said: If we want to have a peaceful life, progress and get rid of all these hardships, the key to all this is unity. In the Islamic Emirate, Islamic belief is everything, there is no place for ethnic thinking in this line. There is no difference between Balkh, Kandahar, Badakhshan, Faryab and Paktia for Amir-ul-Momineen, no Mujahid believes in ethnic thinking and considers these distances as a loss to his belief and faith.
H.E Khalifa said in the end: I have heard your words and suggestions, the ones which are within the limits of myself and the cabinet will be addressed, Inshallah and the ones which are related to the leader of IEA, Amir-ul-Momineen, will be shared with him.
