hekmatyarHezb-e-Islami (HIA) leader Gulbuddin Hekmatyar has met with a number of the group’s commanders in eastern Laghman province of Afghanistan, sources told Ariana News Monday.

A member of HIA told Ariana News that within six days Hekmatyar will come to Kabul.

“I think Hekmatyar will come to Kabul with about one million people around,” HIA member, Allah Gul Mujahid said. 

He is expected to deliver a speech to his hundreds of supporters in Ghazi stadium in Kabul, however, a number of Afghan parliament members expressed concerns in regard.

“Hekmatyar is someone who has destroyed schools and he even led the terrorists in most wars,” said MP Raihana Azad, “no one has the right to remove him from the blacklist.”

Earlier months ago, the United Nations removed Gulbuddin Hekmatyar from its list of designated terrorists following the peace agreement with the government in September last year.
