I am not posting this because I agree or disagree with the views of Mr. Hikmatyar, but only assuming that it might not be well reported internationally and some of the forum members could be interested to read it.

Interesting Syed. Of course we will never see that in the western media. I have bookmarked the papers page and will add it to my daily news reading. Thanks. Jim...

Thank you Syed , we may just have seen it on SBS ,one of the government broadcasters but it would have been easy to miss .

Syed, I will pass that on to all my contacts, please post any other mainstream news contrdictory articles you encounter. The problem with "news" is we only hear what we are told.

Thank you Sayed.

Interesting interview, and also disturbing.

How can this man "guaranty" anything? What are his promises worth? Without a strong central government, the guaranty of a former prime minister is questionable at best.

If it's okay to commit suicide in opposing an occupying power, wouldn't it be okay to lie to get rid of the occupier? Suicide is forbidden by the Koran. So is lying. If you can break the suicide prohibition in these circumstances, what's to stop a religious person from lying as a means to get to the same end?
