Taliban ask US to take responsibility for past killings

New Delhi, Sep 21 (IANS): The Taliban have condemned the US drone attack that killed 10 Afghan civilians last month and urged the US to take responsibility for their past "killings and oppression" in the country.

"This is not the only incident that the US has committed. For 20 years they have martyred civilians in Afghanistan," Zabihullah Mujahid, deputy minister of culture and information of the Taliban's interim government, told the China Media Group.

Condemning the acts as "a violation of human rights", he stressed that such carelessness leads to a humanitarian catastrophe.

"The US must be held accountable for their past actions and cooperate with the people of Afghanistan as a form of compensation for the killings and oppression in the country," he said, the report added.

The deputy minister also commented on the six-month extension of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) which was adopted last Friday.

"We're optimistic about the extension of UNAMA activities because it's a body of the UN and an international organisation," he said, reiterating the country's willingness to have good relations with the international community.

"We call upon them to not extend their mission but take effective steps in order to raise the voices of Afghan people and assist the Afghans. And also, the UN must play a positive role politically with the Afghans," he added, as per the report.

    US and Israel have just one word for civilian deaths - "collateral damage" as if that will absolve them.. But who has the guts to challenge?

    All western liberals games to fool people and create more problems...... Looks like Taliban also is a creation of communist chinese sponsored western liberals. That's why Taliban now joined hands with communist china. Otherwise God and Satan never go hand in hand, with atheist communist chinese. ....... These communist chinese now use Talibanies to destabilize India, Europe, US for their gain and control. Finally brainwash Talibanies and make them like another Uyghirs. For that only high tech vaccines suffice for these communist chinese. ........ Bible clearly warns in Mark 8:36 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? ........ Also Divine Fifth Commandment says 'Thou shalt not kill' so unless really repented of jihad killing crimes one will not land in Jannat but in hell! . Same goes to western liberals and communist chinese or any other unrepented killers.

    As per science magnetic poles switch sides, where north becomes south and south becomes north once in a million years or so. Looks like good and bad, truth and lie, honesty and dishonesty got such tendency, where lies becomes truth and visa versa. Agreed that from Taliban side it always looked US was in wrong, same way BJP seen congress. But, end of the day, terror and human rights violation can not or should not earn justifiable crime status.

    Jeevan.. You need to come out of your baby comment.... By the way, turning tables won't take time. A day will also come when cruel rulers will be dragged from their places and taken to holy land where they will be tried and punished for their cruelty. Be it any superpower, or Israel or any land of shirk, the day will come for their wicked act, but unfortunately neither you or I will be witness to it.

    Is this a joke for today or are you serious in your statement. US was a fool to loose it's own people and resources trying to save humanity and human rights at large. They must be regretting now for their losses.

    Terrorists hide between civilians so it's a known fact that there will be some innocent civilians who will fall in the line of fire. But still even if the US has killed 1 terrorist we are thankful because terrorists are a menace to everybody

    US did best to bring peace in the land but people of Afghanistan did not supported them with one voice. If China comes in to this mess then it will be blood shedding everywhere. They don't care others suffering and no value for human rights
