MESSAGE BELOW FROM AFGHANISTAN EMBASSY OFFICIAL, HE IS FIRST SECRETARY




Dear Coalition of Hindu Organizations,


I don’t know how credible your claim of representing the Coalition of Hindu Organisations is, or whether such an organization actually exist at all, but I know as an Afghan that some of the assertions in your email about possible desecration of the grave of a former Hindu King buried in Ghazni are not true.



Sometime ago, I also came across the excerpts of the book, apparently written by someone called Paul, about what he claims to have witnessed in Ghazni concerning the desecration of the grave of a former Hindu King. However, as an Afghan I remain strongly skeptical about the authenticity of the claim and his interpretation of what he might or might not have seen in Ghazni.



Besides, you need to keep in perspective the security implications of your suggestion that the Indian Prime Minister should visit the purported grave of the Hindu King in faraway Ghazni.



Let me assure you that the absolute majority of the Afghan people do value the deeply historical relations they have enjoyed with India. Please do not rash in passing unintelligent judgments about your Prime Minister’s conduct or for that matter that of the Afghan Government and people.



You might be supportive of or against the current government of India, but when it comes to the foreign relations of your nation as a whole, irrespective of who leads them at any one particular time, it has always been cordial and friendly with Afghanistan. You will not do any service to your country or to your nation by picking asserted little faults, and blowing them out of proportion, in its relations with a country like Afghanistan.



Best wishes
Ahmad Shayeq Qassem
