NEW DELHI — Expressing deep concern over the situation in Afghanistan. ‘Indian Friends of Afghanistan’, a group comprising former foreign ministers, ex-diplomats and public intellectuals urged New Delhi, in an appeal released on Wednesday, to prevent the use of the Afghan crisis for communal polarisation in India to win elections.

Addressed to the Government of India, the international community and the Taliban, the signatories of the appeal said they stood “shoulder to shoulder with the people of Afghanistan in these difficult times”.

Signed by former foreign ministers Natwar Singh and Yashwant Sinha, former diplomats Mani Shankar Aiyar, K. C. Singh and a clutch of well-regarded public intellectuals, the letter said that no political party should be allowed to use the development in Afghanistan to communally polarise society for electoral gains.
