Taliban turns down president’s offer to open office in Kabul, wants Doha recognized

Last week in Moscow, Taliban officials had stressed the importance of a formal office among a string of demands that included the removal of Western sanctions and travel bans on Taliban members, prisoner releases and an end to “propaganda” against the group. In reaction to the remarks, President Ghani said Sunday, “If the Taliban want an office, I will give it to them in Kabul, Nangarhar or Kandahar by tomorrow.” He made the offer while visiting the province of Nangarhar, a hotbed of insurgent violence on the border with Pakistan. However, Taliban spokesman Sohail Shahin later told Reuters that the focus was international recognition of their existing site in Doha, Qatar, and not a new office in Afghanistan. “Our demand about having an official political office is clear, we want that our office in Doha is recognized by the international community and the United Nations,” Shahin said. “By this, Ghani is trying to change the topic and harm the on-going peace efforts,” the Taliban spokesman said. The comments came a few days after the group's two-day summit on Afghan peace process in Moscow, which was described by former Afghan president Hamid Karzai as “very, very satisfactory.” “We understand that the government needs to be part of these negotiations. We wish they could have been here today,” he told reporters in Moscow. Earlier in December 2018, the group had rejected a call by the Afghan government for formal peace talks in Saudi Arabia. “We will meet the US officials in Saudi Arabia in January next year and we will start our talks that remained incomplete in Abu Dhabi,” the Taliban leader said at the time. “However, we have made it clear to all the stakeholders that we will not talk to the Afghan government.” The Taliban negotiators are due to meet US officials for another round of talks in Qatar on February 25, at a time when President Ghani has repeatedly warned that the Afghan peace talks must be “Afghan-led and Afghan-owned.”

Islamic Channels are Fading out | Save ThemDonate here: Gofundme: https://www.gofundme.com/rationalbeliever Paypal: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=EN79XRUF35QWL **************************************************************************************************************************************** As'salamu Alaikum Wa Rahmatullahi Wa Barakatuh, Dear viewers! As some of you are aware, it’s a couple of months that YouTube has updated its policies by setting the algorithms so that it targets Islamic content and channels. They removed so many Islamic channels from their partner program while almost none of those channels violated any of their policies. With this they try to fade out the Islamic Dawah. Same thing happened to our channel too… It is the third time that our channel is being targeted by YouTube. First they have banned a video worldwide for couple of hours, then they deleted a video with the claim that it violated their terms and conditions while it wasn’t the case... and recently they have demonetized our channel (the only source that could cover a part of our production costs) again by claiming that our content is violating their terms and conditions while in reality we have never promote violence, or produce inappropriate content. It seems like they want to demotivate us so that we stop producing Islamic contents. But by the will of Allah (swt) that will never happen! Indeed production of a professional content needs huge costs and time. A lot of efforts (e.g. providing topics, doing research, providing footage, making narration, recording, graphics, editing & etc...) goes into making only one video. And we alone are not capable of covering the whole costs since we have no more financial source. Therefore we ask you to join and take part in our dawah mission and support our channel in order to continue with even more amazing contents and to help us educate people around the world about the beautiful religion (ISLAM) and make them come closer to Allah (swt). Currently we are unable to create any patreon page due to some problems. But you can donate to the below gofundme and paypal links: For those brothers/sisters who have problem with the donation campaigns for Islamic channels: Just know that Allah is enough for them, it’s about your responsibility for your religion. They didn’t make these channels to make money out of them, for sure if they were looking for money, they would choose some other ways which would make way more money for them. But they chose to serve for their religion. They all try their best and have their own way of presenting the message of Islam… they face huge problems while making those contents which help you and your children. Be with them Support them to spread the truth And be the cause for guidance of masses In Sha Allah In sha Allah your donation will be counted as (Sadaqah Jaariyah) and will get continues rewards since these contents will reach to millions of viewers by the passage of time. If you can't support us financially, please make Dua for us. Jazzak Allahu Khairan, Rational Believer
