A prayer ceremony for Sayed Hussain Anwari, late leader of Hizb-e-Harakat-e-Islami party of Afghanistan and prominent politician, was held in Kabul on Monday.
The ceremony was attended by high-ranking government officials, national council members, political figures, jihadi leaders and a number of ordinary citizens.
The Chief Executive of Afghanistan Abdullah Abdullah said that Sayed Hussain Anwari was a jihadi leader that always lived by the rules.
“He was one the Jihadi and resistance leaders and he was always obeyed rules and ethical methods of living,” Abdullah said.
A number of politician and jihadi leaders said his passing was a loss to the country.
“He never had fear and always stood for national political and social causes,” said Anwar-ul-Haq Ahadi, chairman of The New National Front Party.
“He was a patriot and he always sought unity and solidarity of the people of Afghanistan. He defended the people of Afghanistan in the most difficult times,” said Abdul Hafiz Mansour a parliament member.
His brother seems not happy with the National Unity Government (NUG) and he said “friends who are in the government must apply their promises which they promised during the election time”.
Anwari who had travelled to India for medical treatment, died in an Indian hospital on Tuesday. He played a key role in the Mujahedeen and post-Mujahedeen governments and served in high government positions during the previous government under former president Hamid Karzai.
