Presidential candidate and former National Security Adviser

Mohammad Haneef Atmar strongly reacted to use of force by government in

replacing the police chief of Balkh province which resulted into sporadic

clashes in provincial capital Mazar-e-Sharif city this afternoon.

In a statement released in the aftermath of breakout of

violence in Mazar-e-Sharif city, Atmar said the government’s approach to use

force will strengthen instability and create further opportunities for armed

enemies, accusing the government of adopting a policy of coup d’etat.

Atmar further added that the latest development in

Mazar-e-Sharif city could threaten security belts in Balkh and its neighboring

provinces, emphasizing that the actions which have been taken in contrast to

agreements and illegal moves without considering the goodwill of nation’s

affairs is not only a electoral approach but is aimed at hurting relations of

people and ongoing peace efforts.

Hailing the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces for

their efforts in ensuring peace and stability under the leadership of an

extrajudicial government, Atmar warned the military action by the government

and Special Forces of Police is aimed at eliminating the security arrangements

in place for Balkh and sparking enmity and hatred among people against National

Defense and Security Forces.

Accusing the government for misuse of National Defense and Security Forces against people, Atmar urged the armed forces to preserve their neutrality against the policies of a corrupt government leadership.

Atmar went on to claim that the leadership of the government is attempting to create an atmosphere for the enemies of tradition and national legacies of the country in the North, particularly in the zone home to holy shrine of Hazrat Ali, vowing that he and his team will prevent such conspiracies with the help of people of Balh province.
