HIA revokes memberships of former heavyweights

HIA revokes memberships of former heavyweights

Mar 13, 2018 - 23:19

KABUL (Pajhwok): Gulbadin Hekmatyar-led Hezb-i-Islami Afghanistan (HIA) has scrapped party membership of its three former heavyweights ---- Abdul Hadi Arghandwal, Eng. Mohammad Khan and Dr. Anwar.

A statement from the HIA office in Kabul said the unanimous decision to relieve the three men from HIA membership was taken at a meeting of the party’s executive council.

The statement said as the three individuals had commitments with other parties and alliances and followed their policies and stances.

The HIA said its every member could lose membership of the party over overt or covert commitment with other parties.

“They had been told to form their own parties if they desire so, but with their own separate name, sign and banner in order there is no problem with each other and avoid acts that provoke confrontation, but they did not respond accordingly and thus leaving the HIA with no option but to revoke their membership.”
