Delegation of Indian Islamic scholars meets Afghan ambassador in Iran

(Last Updated On: June 12, 2023)

Three days after India announced that it had sent a technical team back to its embassy in Kabul, a delegation of Indian Islamic scholars travelled to Iran and met with the acting ambassador of Afghanistan in Tehran.

The delegation led by Salman Husaini Nadwi, a prominent Indian scholar, spoke with Ambassador Fazl Mohammad Haqqani about the issues related to Afghanistan and the role of scholars in ensuring ties between the two countries.

Experts believe Indian Islamic scholars’ visit to Kabul can be useful for the resumption of diplomatic relations between Kabul and New Delhi.

“India has always had good relations with Afghanistan throughout history. It has provided aid to Afghanistan, but there is one issue that they could not maintain the balance during the rule of Ashraf Ghani and Hamid Karzai. Their relations with India became so close that they found some political agendas and even political documents in their consulates in Nangarhar and Paktia, which show that India was carrying out political activities in Afghanistan,” said Jannat Fahim Chakari, a political expert.

Indian foreign minister has said that the technical team would monitor the situation to see how New Delhi can support the Afghan people.

“Indians have no achievements in Afghanistan. They played very poorly. Indians and the Indian government cannot play any role in the future of Afghanistan. India has approximately 240 million Muslims population. Their attitude towards the Muslims in India is very discriminatory and harsh,” Rahmatullah Hassan, a political expert, said.

India has not recognized the new government of Afghanistan so far.

Regarding the recent controversy in the Afghan embassy in New Delhi, India has said that it is internal affairs of the embassy and it does not involve India.
