2. Previous Functions:
After 2001 and the first Bonn Conference, Emad was optimistic about the future of Afghanistan and hoping for a better future for Afghans. At that time he was considered as Vice-President of Rabbani. After the first two months of Karzai’s temporary government were terminated, he started to be suspicious of the future especially about the leading circle of Karzai. He ·kept himself isolated from Politics, due to not· having trust in the new governments. He monitored the new upcoming conditions and the government. ·After Karzai’s first temporary government, he became an opponent to Karzai· due to foreseeing the Karzai administration was going in a wrong direction and due to his corrupted government. Emad had officially complained about some new minsters appointed by Karzai such as Ismail Khan and others.·Emad started to take a part more in other activities such as social and reconstructions. Politically he out cried corruption in the Karzai government. Now (2011), it’s recognized that Karzai’s administration is one of the most corrupt governments in the world.· Nevertheless, several times Karzai offered ·a ministry to Emad to have him under control in Kabul.· Emal refused and is cited to have said “I will not take a part in such corrupted administration which does not have any strategy or plan for the future of Afghanistan regarding security and stability". More, He revealed some of the governments’ dubious intentions and corrupted activities especially in the ruling circle.
On the other hand, Emad was against Taliban as well. He was the first person, who had an interview with BBC radio regarding Mullah Omer and stated that he cannot be AMIR UL MOMININ (Muslim Leader). He was deeply against with Taliban ideologies and activities. Since Taliban emerged, Emad was against them till now (2011). He believes that Taliban are not in favour of Peace in Afghanistan because they do not have the authority to make peace.
In recent years, he started to be more active and asked from Prof.Rabbani a new convention for Jamiat -e-· Islami party. Especially, since 2010 the motivations and drive ·for new convention started and Emad's vision was to make strong his party as a true Opposition, to stop corruption and propose a new plan for the Government and International Community how to overcome from the currents obstacles.
