Karzai gave the advice when Nigeria’s Ambassador to Afghanistan Dauda Danladi, presented his letters of credence in Kabul, the Afghan capital recently.
“Boko Haram should stop burning schools, Mosques, Churches in the name of Islam. You should not destroy your country if you are true Muslims. You should protect lives because in Islam if you kill one, it is as if you have killed the whole of humanity and if you save life, it is as if you have saved the whole of humanity” he was quoted in a statement from the Nigerian Embassy in Pakistan.
President Karzai recalled the activities of the Taliban in his country saying it was externally motivated.
Danladi, who is Nigeria’s nonresident ambassador to Afghanistan, commended the efforts of President Karzai’s administration.
He assured his host that Nigeria’s transformation agenda initiated by President Goodluck Jonathan on the international scene, is global peace and economic diplomacy.
He said issues on manpower development, capacity building and institutional strengthening will be forwarded to relevant authorities in Nigeria for consideration under a conducive atmosphere.
