Safe Mode: On
2 Boys With Suicide Vests Arrested in Kandahar
 Part of channel(s): Afghanistan (current event)


Three Taliban fighters and two 12 year old would-be suicide attackers along with their weapons are presented to media representatives in Kandahar.


KANDAHAR, Afghanistan — Two boys equipped with suicide vests were
arrested here over the weekend, less than a year after one of them had
been pardoned by President Hamid Karzai for the same crime. Both were
presented to reporters Sunday.

The boys, named Nasibullah and Azizullah, were described by officials
from the National Directorate of Security, Afghanistan's intelligence
agency, as 12-year-olds who had been trained in Pakistani madrassas. The
officials refused to give their names for security reasons.

Both boys appeared calm and outspoken at the news conference, and it
was unclear if they understood the gravity of what it would mean to
carry out suicide bombings.

Azizullah said he went to a madrassa in Quetta. The teachers told
him, "'You won't be hurt; just go and carry out a suicide attack,' " he
said.

There have been a number of children caught in the past two years
with the intention of carrying out suicide attacks. Most have attended
madrassa across the border in Pakistan and told to detonate the
explosives near foreign soldiers or Afghan government security forces.
The indoctrination is intense, with heavy pressure at the schools to
engage in a holy war against the foreigners, said the intelligence
officials in Kandahar.

Azizullah said that from the school, he was ferried across the border. He was arrested with a suicide vest in Kandahar, he said.

"Now I am requesting the government to forgive me and let me join my
family. I won't go back to the madrassa," said Azizullah, who is from
Gardez in Paktia province.

The other boy, Nasibullah, already has been forgiven once. He said he
was pardoned by Karzai during Ramadan last summer, but then returned to
a madrassa in Pakistan where he was persuaded for a second time to
carry out a suicide bombing.

Karzai follows the tradition of pardoning criminals during Ramadan,
the Muslim holy month, and in 2011 he pardoned a dozen children who had
been arrested either for planning or attempting suicide attacks. The
children were mostly under the age of 12 and one was only 8, according
to Afghan and foreign news reports.

“The last time I was arrested by officials, I was sent to Kabul and I
was brought before President Karzai,” Nasibullah said at Sunday’s news
conference. “Mr. Karzai asked me what had happened. I explained that the Taliban
wanted me to carry out a suicide attack and they put a vest on me and
said ‘you can carry out a suicide attack,’ but I was arrested by
policemen. Karzai told me, ‘Don’t worry son, we will send you back
home,’ and so he pardoned me.”

Nasibullah, who officials from the intelligence directorate said was
originally from Pishin in the Baluchistan region of Pakistan, said he
was hoping for a second reprieve. “I am again arrested by officials and
now again I am requesting from the government to forgive me,” he said.
“This time I won’t go back to the madrasa.” New York Times:

  • Boys! Muslims are their own worst enemy. Any talk of their violence being caused by Westerners or Jews is just misdirection. They hate and kill each other automatically every day, day in day out. Ugly culture.

      We have been saying this for a very long time. The saddest thing is that these madrasas are being funded by Saudis and American. The U.S government pays to modernize these madrases and remove verses and literature in their curriculum that has the word " JIHAD " in it while the Saudis pay to keep the jihadi curriculum. All in all we are being sandwiched between the two and Taliban like elements are rolling in dough.

    • @hummer101 Sick of hearing the convoluted claims that the USA is somehow responsible for everything in your country just because they touched in once. Trying to modernize the Madrassas is a decent action. But they're in your nation and you won't act consistently against radicalization because of political expediency. It has already bitten you on the ass once, it will again because as soon as these jokers think they have the upper hand they will attempt to annex parts of or conquer Pakistan.... A More..

  • The taliban convincing 12 year olds to go kill themselves. It is amazing how they think anybody can give them a shred of legitimacy. They are not fit to lead a nation, let alone a couple of school boys.

      Check out some of the first hand accounts of some of the madrassas that were abandoned in Afghanistan during the 2001 invasion. They brainwash the kids by painting what heaven "looks like" on the walls. Rivers of milk and honey, trees with candy etc etc. For the adults you get 72 virgins, for the kids you get endless amounts of candy and goodies.

  • Well, mohammed the pedophile prophet (piss be upon him) got his inspiration after raping a 9 year old girl so it can't be too surprising that Sunni extremists will use children as bomb mules. It goes without saying that it is incumbent upon every citizen of civilization to contribute to the global effort to exterminate Sunni extremists.

  • Those two 12 year old kids are just brainwashed just like the Hitlerjugend were they cannot be blame for that, the ones to be blame are the Madrassa, their parents for putting them in the madrassa, the Paki government for allowing those madrassa and the Saudis who are financing those madrassa.
