## Why isn’t Pakistan held accountable for their support of global terrorism: Afghan group asks US politician ##
Claiming that the Taliban used Pakistan for its terrorist activities, Afghanistan’s Milli Gato Saatonko Group – a national interests preservation body – in a letter to US politician Stephen F. Lynch has asked why then Pakistan isn’t held accountable for their support of global terrorism.
“We all know that the Taliban used Pakistan as a launching ground to attack the US, NATO and Afghan Security forces – why isn’t Pakistan held accountable for their blatant support of global terrorism and what are the future guarantees that they won’t send their 40+ over terrorist organizations to destabilize post-peace Afghanistan?” the letter asked.
Raising concerns about Pakistan’s intentions regarding the US-Taliban peace deal, the Group further asked if Pakistan will let peace prevail in Afghanistan.
“Pakistan has a proven record of training terrorists and sending them to Afghanistan and the world, is there any assurance that Pakistan will let peace prevail in Afghanistan?” the group asked.
The group further said that the people of Afghanistan are hoping for the best possible outcome from the on-going peace negotiations between Taliban and the US.
“We value the sacrifices the American men and women have made alongside their Afghan counterparts for the greater good of preserving freedom, liberty and human rights. We understand that the peace breakthrough facilitated by the U.S government is aligned with the aspirations of our great nation,” read the letter.
“It has created a new pathway for a hopeful future where every Afghan can wake up without the fear of losing a loved one on their way to school or work by an act of terror,” it added.
The Milli Gato Saatonko Group also called upon Stephen F. Lynch to stand up for women’s rights “which is indisputably human’s rights, and let this deal be known as one that preserved the rights of every Afghan man and woman”.
“We, Milli Gato Saatonko Group, The National Interests Preservation Group, solemnly call upon you to not only remain on the right side of the history, but rise to the occasion by standing up for the great cause of women’s rights which is indisputably human’s rights, and let this deal be known as one that preserved the rights of every Afghan man and woman.
“Not a deal that prevents little girls from going to school, not a deal that leads to the destruction of our institutions, not a deal that backtracks on the great achievements of freedom and democracy. Let’s make sure that Afghanistan does not become a safe haven for terrorism by proxy,” it said.
