    Kabul: Afghan President Hamid Karzai has offered the spiritual leader of Taliban, Mullah Mohammad Omar, to abandon the wepons and in exchange he could run for political office and even the Afghan presidency.
    According to reports, the Afghan President said that the fugitive leader of the Taliban, who is one of the most wanted man in the world, could hold power if enough people voted for him.
    He told a news conference: “I repeat my call on all Afghans, those who aren’t the puppets of others and have (only) issues with us at home – they’re welcome for any talks,†the AFP news agency reported.

    “Mullah Mohammad Omar can come inside Afghanistan anywhere he wants to. He can open political office for himself but he should leave the gun.â€

    “He along with his friends can come and create his political party, do politics, become a candidate himself for the elections. If people voted for him, good for him, he can take the leadership in his hand.†Mr Karzai routinely refers to the Taliban as his brothers and calls on them to join talks and renounce violence.

    His approaches have been publicly rebuffed so far and as recently as this week the militants issued a statement denying they were in talks with the “stooge Kabul regimeâ€.

    Mullah Omar has been on the run since his government was ousted in 2001 and still has a $10 million dollar bounty on his head from the United States government because he “represents a continuing threat to America and her alliesâ€.

    The American embassy in Kabul declined to comment on Mr Karzai’s offer.

    Bro, taliban cud never take over NA in Afgan thanks to indian RAW. Now we are far superior there. US will stay put in Afgan till 2025 till the nation stabilises with a lesser presence.
    You know how we tackle people like Mullah Omar in India, just out live the problem. You need not kill the enemy in battle. create counters to leadership and wait for the leader to die. This is the true blood Brahmin wisdom for you bro. Once Mullah Omar dies, there will be war of succession. No muslim has ever sat on the throne without killing his own brothers and sisters and parents. Only Hindus had a very well defined law of succession which was never challenged by any sibling, exception are there. but they are not the rule.

    take a scenario that if the taliban come to the negotiation table with US, Pak and NA. So, in that senario it is totally obvious that Pak will support Taliban, and promote its candidancy.

    So, why not NA will think that we should take out the India on negotiation table to neutralise the threat from Pak and Taliban.

    It's like telling Taliban that you will get nothing! no one will vote for them that's a fact and thus they aren't interested in elections; today Hizb Islami declared that they will take part in the up coming elections and will choose a capable person for nomination!

    They aren't going to get anything they should now empower their political wing more than terror wing.

    Sher Malang , my view is that this is really a regrettable news as why to offer people of heinous terror organization for president role. Here we have to make the strong foundation for new modern Afghanistan, do not need this kind of people who are sharia law promoter & lover.

    Bro pls forgive me for saying it but islamic republics and democracy meet at infinity. You cant be an islamic republic and be democratic. Turkey is democratic but also a secualer nation. They are not Islamic republic. Islam neither recognises anyform of govt other than islamic and as per Holy Quraan nor does it have place for anything which is called science.

    Any country where relegion has a sway has been a disaster- why single out one relegion? Christian fanatics in spain did pretty much the same thing. Closer to home, the jain king kaharavela wanted to spread the peace of jainism by slaughtering thousands. It's relegion that's the problem, not relegion of one kind.

    One day or another both parties have to compromise because both of them belong to the same country and Karzai is keen enough on what he says he didn't offered Mullah Omar his chair but urged him to lay down his gun and live a life like other Afghans - Mullah Omar is an Afghan like every other Afghan has a constitutional right to become a nominate in any election in the country but be sure that Mullah Omar has to make many changes till to get a province in election presidency is far thing!

    To some extent you are right and I agree it's very difficult to implement every Islamic laws under republic and throughout history Afghanistan was never a 'Islamic Republic'!

    if Mulla Umar will be president it will be like marring the raped girl to all those accused who brutality gang raped her...

    Is Karjai started to take cocin... call taliban to be part of democracy and it will be good but not with Umar... Kill him and let the taliban join the democracy... they will ruin some years in inner fight to be head of taliban and till then democracy and other afghan parties will have better roots

    Leadership is not a big problem for Jihadis and Mullah Omar is not Bin Ladin who got billions of wealth of himself but Omar's funding channels are within (less)Afghanistan, Pakistan, UAE, Saudi Arabia and some other sympathizers.
