4 decades old enmity comes to an end in Kunduz

KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): A 40-year-old feud between two families in the Khanabad district of northern Kunduz province has come to an end — thanks to efforts by the Dispute Resolution Commission.

The enmity between the two families began 40 years ago following the killing of three individuals.

Hamidullah Ahmadi, head of the tribal jirga of the borders and tribal affairs department, said both sides announced burying the hatchet at a gathering on Wednesday.

He recalled three people had been killed and five others wounded in this enmity, which fortunately turned into friendship.

Sharafuddin Ahmadzai, whose two sons were killed, said: “Both sides, having lost relatives, had not seen each other over the last 40 years. From now on, we will have friendship and live like members of the same family.”

Abdullah, a member of one of the two families, said they were thrilled over getting rid of the long-running enmity.

Maulvi Abdul Ghafoor Shahidzoi, chief of staff to the governor, said: “The directive of the central government is to put an end to enmities between brothers and those who have problems with each other should sit together, talk out their problems and live peacefully.”

Aghamir Naseri, a tribal elder, said anyone who violated the jirga decision will have to pay a fine of five million afghanis.

The Ministry of Border and Tribal Affairs says after the re-establishment of the Islamic Emirate, hundreds of ethnic groups and tribes have reconciled in different parts of the country.
