  “Mujahid doesn’t mean monopoly, but applies to all Afghans,” President Ghani
 KABUL: President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani attended a ceremony held in Salam Khana Palace to mark Saur 8, Mujahidin’s victory, his office said in a statement the other day. 
According to the statement, President Ghani called Afghan people’s jihad a national great epic against former Soviet Union and its puppet regime which started on April 1978 and continued until April 1992.
“When Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan, no real analyst were thinking that this jihad would succeed, but with firm faith, this historical epic succeeded,” President Ghani said.
The president added that during jihad against former Red Army, all segments and tribes of the country had attended and we should transfer this historical epic to next generations as well, the statement went on to say.
“We also need such an epic in fighting terrorism,” the president added. 
‘Mujahid word is not in monopoly of anyone, but also to all Afghan nation,’ the president said.
On peace suggestion to Taliban and in return declaration of Khandaq Operation by them, the president said, “Are the Taliban aware of Khandaq Ghazwa (A war against infidels)? Ghazwa against whom, against Ulama, women, children and Mujahidin?”
Wolesi Jirga speaker Abdul Rauf Ibrahimi, Senate chairman and some other government high ranking officials were present in the ceremony.
