A number of supporters of “Coalition for Salvation of Afghanistan’ at a gathering in Kabul on Monday asked for First Vice President Abdul Rashid Dostum’s return to the country.

“General Dostum is being under questions because of his political rival,” said Acting Head of National Islamic Unity Party of Afghanistan, Mohammad Natiqi. “He should be returned back to the country,” he added.

Some civil society and political activists, however, said that certain circles in the government attempt to provoke ethnic dissension among the people by targeting their national political figures.

They warned that the ongoing political crisis will continue, if the government does not bring reforms.

“Reforms should be brought in, and it should begin in ARG (Presidential Palace),” said Media Activist, Fazul Rahman Orya.

The Presidential Palace did not react in regard so far, however, it has rejected such allegations in the past.

The Coalition for Salvation of Afghanistan was formed by leaders from three Afghan political parties – Jamiat-e-Islami, the National Unity of Afghanistan and the National Islamic Movement of Afghanistan early July. At the time they issued a draft resolution where they made various demands from the government.
