Jihad to continue unabatedly till complete foreign troops pullout from Afghanistan: Mullah Omar.

Kandahar, August 30(ANI): Taliban leader Mullah Muhammad Omar has said that limited withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan is not a solution to the Afghan conflict, and that their Jihad will continue till the complete pullout of occupation forces from the war-ravaged country.

"First of all, I would like to say that limited withdrawal of the invading forces can, in no way, solve the issue of Afghanistan. The Jihad will continue unabatedly, because superficial measures further complicate the issue of Afghanistan and can produce harmful consequences. The invading forces should seek a lasting and convincing solution to the issue by immediately withdrawing their forces," the Afghan Islamic Press quoted Omar, as saying in his message on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr.

In an about 3000-word message in English, Omar discussed various important points in detail, including permanent US bases, future of Afghanistan, negotiations, the upcoming Bonn conference, the Afghan government, the mujahideen, the common masses of the country and the stance of the Islamic Emirate, reports.

Strongly opposing the establishment of permanent US bases in Afghanistan, Omar said that the agenda and discussions of the Bonn conference would be decided in the White House and Pentagon.

Regarding the current situation of Jihad, Omar said: "The enemies of Islam and Afghanistan had envisioned that the current year would be crucial for defeat of Mujahideen and for obtainment of the wicked goal of the enemy... Praise be to Allah, all their plans transpired to prove contrary to their calculations and assessments. The enemy sustained more casualties in soul and equipments this year in comparison with last years. With the passage of each day, the Mujahideen become better familiar with the enemy tactics; they are gaining access to hardware that is instrumental in causing greater losses to the enemy."

The Taliban leader also urged all Muslims across the world to support the Mujahideen through their material and spiritual support.

"Similarly, we urge independent people and personalities of the world to support the legitimate defensive struggle of the Afghans and do not allow the tyrannical arrogant to coerce the oppressed people of the world to become exposed to the wicked and tyrannical motives of the arrogants simply because they use force and violence," Omar added.
