ABSTRACT
The article discusses an article by Sher Alam Saqib published within the "Outlook Afghanistan," on views of individuals who did not participate in a drive to convene Jirga. Saqib reported that National Consultative Jirga was a failure. Haji Mohammad Mohaqiq, leader of the People's Unity Party of Afghanistan, said that Jirga participants had no decision-making power. Gulbuddin Hekmatyar, who was believed a member of Taliban and al-Qaeda, claimed that Jirga was undermining state-building process.
