Afghan President Ashraf Ghani left the country on Sunday. After this the Taliban captured Rashtrapati Bhavan. Now Ghani has issued a message to the citizens of the country. In this, he has given the reason for leaving the country. It also told what possibilities they see ahead.
“The Taliban have won with the judgement of their swords and guns, and are now responsible for the honour, property and self-preservation of their countrymen,” Ghani said in a statement posted to Facebook. “They are now facing a new historical test. Either they will preserve the name and honour of Afghanistan or they will give priority to other places and networks,” he added, saying he left to prevent a “flood of bloodshed”.
“If left unchecked, countless patriots would be martyred and the city of Kabul would be devastated, resulting in a major humanitarian catastrophe in the six-million-strong city,” he said.
