English translation (from Pashto) of the
DeclarationAdopted by two-day Afghan National Jarga held in Peshawar onMay 29-30, 2012.
Though the Afghan land has experienced wars since very long butthe present war fought for the last decades by state and non-statactors, supported from abroad has led to the killings of millions of Afghans, leaving million wounded and displaced, and their propertiesdestroyed.It has left very negative and severe impact on political, economic,cultural and social lives of the Afghans on both sides of Durand Line.Some of these negative cruel, dirty and intolerable acts have tarnishedthe image of the Afghan culture and religion in the world.The afghan land, a land of peace and dialogues, is witnessing blood-shed and homicide and the whole area has been converted into a dumpof explosives and ammunition.Millions of people lost their lives, millions of houses and the wholeinfrastructure destroyed, while millions of people, including children,women and elderly displaced and forced to live away from their homelands in miserable conditions.
