Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan:
Uruzgan the land of ingrained Jihadi passion
Rajab 26, 1433 A.H, Sunday, June 17, 2012
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Uruzgan is from amongst the central provinces of Afghanistan which shares borders with Kandahar, Helmand, Daikondi, Zabul and Ghazni. It has an area of approximately 22692 square kilometers and is home of nearly four hundred thousand (400,000) people. It is mostly a mountainous region and its people mainly poor like the rest of the population of Afghanistan.
A large chunk of Uruzgan was split back in 2004 and turned into an independent province (Daikondi) so therefore it is now made up of 5 districts namely Khas Uruzgan, Dahrawod, Chora, Char China and Chinartu with a provincial capital named Tarinkot city which is commonly referred to as Terai in the local dialect.
Uruzgan province is an important Jihadi region of the Mujahideen in terms of Jihadi operations against the Americans just as it served an impregnable front against the Soviets, causing them immense losses. From the day the head of the stooge Kabul regime, Hamid Karzai was propped up by the intelligence forces of America in Dahrawod district and began their armed actions against the Islamic Emirate until today, Jihad has been successfully forging ahead in Uruzgan province and has picked up steam and cohesiveness with the passing of each year.
Even at this very moment, the Jihadi structures of Islamic Emirate are actively engaged in their duties in Uruzgan provincial capital as well as in all its districts. Darwaishaan, Sarmarghab and Marabad wide regions of the capital Tarinkot are important areas under the influence of Mujahideen where the enemy forces are regularly targeted with explosives, missiles and ambushes. Besides this, the Mujahideen also carry out various other guerilla attacks inside the city center including general large scale operations, martyrdom operations as well as targeted killings which has resulted in the elimination key enemy figures. In the past two months a famous contractor working for the Americans Daar Ahmadullah, intelligence officer Hashim Khan, former senator Khairullah Khan, enemy commander Tor Jan and other government officials have also been taken out in the various operations.
Dahrawod district is the only region of Uruzgan where the enemy exercises some form of power and which is not under the full control of Mujahideen. Other district like Chora, Khas Uruzgan and Char Chino are under the complete control of Mujahideen except the district centers and some roads. Since the enemy has failed in the past decade to extend its power beyond provincial capitals despite repeatedly using all its might therefore it is expending in energies in creating Arbakis (militias) in the rural areas to confront Mujahideen. Just as in most of the other parts of Afghanistan, this program of the enemy has also faltered miserably in Uruzgan province. These same Arbarkis which were created in some areas with great expenditures are now defecting to the Mujahideen and are surrendering all their weapons and provisions.
The spokesperson of Mujahideen in Uruzgan province (Muhammad Asif) states that the Jihadi condition in the province is very reassuring. Only referring to the month of March, he says (I want to make a mention of the month of March in terms of Jihadi operation as an example even though that particular month is quite cold weather wise however the enemy was still targeted quite a lot and was not given any respite. 35 large and small scale attacks were launched against the enemy in that month which resulted in the death of 56 internal and 18 foreign troops while 25 others were wounded. 15 various types of enemy military hardware was also taken out whereas the enemy was forced to vacated 5 check posts while 1 was completely uprooted by the Mujahideen. 14 Arbakis also surrendered themselves and their weapons to the Mujahideen in the period and an enemy unmanned air vehicle was also shot down with a sniper rifle).
The above stated figures clearly show that the prevailing situation in Uruzgan is actually favoring Mujahideen and is quite opposite to what the enemy propaganda tries to portray. Since Uruzgan is a mountainous province hence its people have a natural inclination towards religion and Jihad despite the enemy putting its best efforts and focus on trying to avert the peoples Jihadi will through propaganda. In reality, it is this ingrained Jihadi passion of the people of Uruzgan and their love for the Mujahideen that is guaranteeing the durability and strengthening of Jihadi operations in this province.
