Afghan High Peace Council invites Taliban to debate with religious scholars

Salaam Times

KABUL -- Afghanistan's High Peace Council (HPC) invited Taliban militants to come forward and debate with Afghan ulema, Ariana News reported Sunday (March 11).

"We call on the Taliban to allow their scholars [to have] a debate with Afghan ulema and religious scholars of other Islamic countries," said Ehsan Taheri, a spokesman for the HPC.

The invitation came as religious scholars from Afghanistan, Pakistan and Indonesia are scheduled to meet in Jakarta beginning Thursday (March 15) for a four-day conference aimed at seeking a solution to the war in Afghanistan.

The Taliban in a statement described the conference as "misleading" and urged a boycott.
