پیام سفارتکبرای جمهوری اسلامی افغانستان در کانادا به مناسبت هفتۀ شهید و سالروز شهادت قهرمان ملی، شهید احمد شاه مسعود
September 08, 2016
بار دیگر در آستانهء پانزدهمین سالگرد شهادت احمد شاه مسعود، قهرمان ملی افغانستان، قرار داریم؛ در این روز ملت افغانستان با جهانی از افسوس و دریغ، یاد و خاطرهء شهادت یکی از بهترین فرزندان این مرز سرافراز را تجلیل می کند. آمر صاحب شهید در کنار سایر رهبران گرانقدر ملت افغانستان، شهید پروفیسور برهان الدین ربانی، رییس جمهور اسبق، شهید عبدالعلی مزاری، شهید عبدالحق و سایرین، در راه آزادی و دفاع از افغانستان در برابر دخالت بیگانان و نیروهای وابسته به آنها در جریان سال های مقاومت و پس از آن، جان های شیرین خود را خود را از دست دادند. افغانستان افتخار این را دارد که فرزندانش در مقاطع مهم تاریخی در برابر استعمار، تجاوز، تروریسم و ارتجاع داخلی ایستادند و موفقانه شکست شان دادند. از این رو، به روح پاک قهرمان ملی کشور و تمام شهدای افغانستان اتحاف دعا می نماییم و مقام ارجمند شان را گرامی می داریم.

از یاد نباید برد که افغانستان هنوز هم درگیر تروریسم و مداخلۀ خارجی است و هنوز هم فرزندان این کشور در خط مقاومت ملی در برابر تروریسم و ایادی داخلی و خارجی شان ایستادگی به خرچ داده و در این راه، همانند سپهسالاران پیشین مقاومت، از هیچ فداکاری ای دریغ نمی ورزند. مقاومت ملت افغانستان در برابر تروریسم و مداخلۀ خارجی در واقع نبرد بر سر حفظ افغانستان آزاد، مستقل و دموکراتیک در برابر گروه ها و کشورهایی است که می خواهند امارت سیاه ترور و دهشت را بر سرزمین ما حاکم کرده و افغانستان را به یک کشور وابسته و قرون وسطایی مبدل نمایند.

واضح است که ما در این مقاومت ملی بیشتر از هر زمانی به همبستگی و وحدت ملی نیاز داریم؛ اگر ملت ما درگیر اختلافات داخلی و قومی باشد، فرزندان آن در مصاف با تروریسم، افراطیت و مداخلۀ خارجی موفقیت و پیروزی قاطع را به دست آورده نمی توانند. بدون شک، همدیگر پذیری، احترام به تنوع قومی و پذیرش اصل افغانستان به عنوان یک کشور متحد ما را بیشتر از هر زمان دیگر در برابر دشمنان خارجی و داخلی قوی و سرافراز می سازد.

در پایان، بار دیگر سفارتکبرای جمهوری اسلامی افغانستان در کانادا فرا رسیدن هفتۀ شهید سالروز شهادت قهرمان ملی افغانستان را تسلیت گفته، ضمن اتحاف دعا به روح پاک شان، از بارگاه ایزد لایزال خواهان افغانستان همیشه سربلند، با رفاه و متحد می باشد.

روح شان شاد و یاد شان گرامی باد.

Our context is one of constant change that is multi-dimensional and threatens stability but also they are changes that enhance stability and cooperation.
