'If We Die ...': What Afghan Resistance Leader, Killed, Had Told NDTV

Fahim Dashty was killed during the ongoing firing in Panjshir province on Sunday.

New Delhi:

“If we die, history will write about us, as people who stood for their country till the end of the line,” Fahim Dashty, chief spokesperson of the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRFA), said in an interview to NDTV days ago, as he spoke about the group’s preparations against Taliban in Panjshir, the lost holdout valley in Afghanistan. Mr Dashty stood by his word as he fought against the Taliban till his last breath.

Mr Dashty was killed during the ongoing firing in Panjshir province on Sunday. According to NRFA, Mr Dashty was killed during the day.

Mr Dashty had refused the offer of joining the government with the Taliban, saying that the forces are prepared to die to ensure a good future for the people in the war-torn country.

“If we succeed in our goals to ensure the rise of people of Afghanistan, to ensure a future for the people of the country, for our nation to establish a government, a system which will be responsive to the needs of the people of Afghanistan,” Mr Dashty told NDTV in an interview last week.

“If we die in the resistance, it is a win for us, history will write about us, as people who stood for their country till the end of the line,” he said.

Mr Dashty had survived the suicide attack that killed Massoud’s father, Ahmad Shah Massoud, on September 9, 2001, just days before the September 11 attacks on the United States.

He had been one of the main sources of updates from the area as the Taliban pressed in on opposition forces, issuing a defiant series of statements on Twitter, vowing that resistance would continue.

The Afghan opposition group has now welcomed proposals from religious scholars for a negotiated settlement to end the fighting.

Ahmad Massoud, head of the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan (NRFA), made the announcement on the group’s Facebook page.

The development comes after reports that Taliban forces had fought their way into the provincial capital of Panjshir after securing the surrounding districts.

The Taliban took control of the rest of Afghanistan three weeks ago, taking power in Kabul on Aug. 15 after the Western-backed government collapsed and President Ashraf Ghani fled the country.
