The Afghanistan Mechanism for Inclusive Peace regrets the targeted killing of Ms. Gulsom Malala Miawand, in Jalalabad city, Nangarhar. We condemn this horrific attack in the strongest of terms.
On behalf of its Steering Committee, General Assembly and Secretariat, AMIP expresses its deepest condolences to the family and loved ones of Ms. Miawand.
Malala Miawand was a committed and active member of the AMIP Steering Committee and a respected journalist working with Enikas Radio and Television in Nangarhar province. She fought to bring peace to Afghanistan by bringing to the forefront the voices and realities of Afghan peoples and for the protection of peoples rights and freedoms. We regret that today; this senseless violence has killed her for those very noble efforts she made.
We will work to preserve her memory and the values for which she fought so hard to protect. Let us make sure that her acts do not go in vain.
