During a trip of ASA head, Abdul Bari Rashid and the former chairman of High Peace Council, the late Burhanuddin Rabbani in May 2011, to participate at the Islamic Brotherhood Conference in Iran, Rashid established links with Iranian officials, an ASA official said on condition of anonymity. After the visit, Iran’ s interference increased in the academy’s affairs and Iran funded salaries of ASA members and provided other financial aid for members to lobby for Iran, he said. “In July, 2011, a seminar was conducted under the name of “Role of Sacrifices for Freedom” by some academy members, backed by Iran’s financial support. A book titled “Lessons From History” was distributed among participants. The book was completely against the identity and history of Afghans,” he added.
The photographs of Iranian spiritual leader, Ali Khamenei, were displayed at the seminar, which was also a clear interference of Iran in Afghanistan’s affairs, he added. Since 2011, the academy had conducted three seminars illegally with financial support from Iranian Embassy in Kabul, he said, adding that according to law, no one or no government institution has the authority to invite foreign diplomats or receive overseas funding without the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ permission, he added.
