ASADABAD (Pajhwok): Two families in the Dangam district of eastern Kunar province have ended their 20 years old feud and reconciled with the mediation of tribal Jirga.
Four people from Masoud and Ajab Khan’s families had been killed as a result of this enmity that turned violent after verbal clash.

As a result of the efforts of reconciliatory Jirga, both sides forgive one another and promised that they will live peacefully in the environment of brotherhood.
According to the decision of Jirga every family that violated the reconciliation agreement will face boycott from the villagers in every field of life.
Deputy Governor Kunar Province Abdullah Haqqani was also the member of reconciliation team. He said: “It was the responsibility of elders and influential persons in society help reconcile among disputing families and provide the environment of peaceful live hood.”
According to Haqqani security situation had improved nationwide, adding that efforts were on to end dispute and issues among people in Kunar province.
Members of the disputed families who reconciled also expressed happiness over their reconciliation.
