The declaration of existence of the Afghanistan Solidarity Party was published following the congress of founders of the party.
In "Sholeh Javid" (Eternal Flame) publication, Maoist opponents of Solidarity Party have expressed their opinion regarding this party and the contents of its declaration of existence titled "deceiving and misleading party makers" as follows:
Parties, organizations and councils under various titles, but similar plans and strategies grew like mushrooms, one after another, following the imperialists invasion led by the imperialism of America to Afghanistan. They consider the treacherous in Bon as "Source of Afghanistan nation's will-power" and think of Imperialism of America's occupation as "Spark of hope in tearful eyes of nation", standing in a line of service providers for imperialist occupiers in order to get a position next to the exploiting imperialist table and catch a bone or slice of meat. One of these so-called political organizations is "Afghanistan Solidarity Party" which has announced its existence through publication of a declaration 2004 (on 8th of Hamal 1383LHY). Imperialists' invasion led by America to Afghanistan is welcomed and the coalition of imperialists to invade Afghanistan has been called "anti-terrorism coalition" enthusiastically.
Afghanistan Solidarity Party, due to its Communist and non-Islamic nature, is opposed to political authority founded on Islam, this is why they are against some of articles of constitution in which the role of Islam has been considered in legislation, national identity and political power, this matter is thought to be at least one of "definite shortcomings" of Afghanistan constitution in 20th part of this party's article of association. Opposing to Islam has not frankly been written down in article of associations and constitutions of Solidarity Party and other similar parties, which regard breathing under the shadow of bloody swords of the West Liberal Democrat as "a progressive step", however, those who are familiar with Communist literature and the West terrified intellectuals understand their intention from "to destroy backward economical, cultural relations and defense of all the proletariat and trade union's rights"," abuse of people's religious beliefs"," respect to people's religious beliefs"," defense of liberalist movements"," fundamentalism and terrorism" and ……which are mentioned in the contents of article of association of Solidarity Party and other parties. Non-frankness of Communists,such as Maoists and Sovietists originates from two reasons, panic and dishonesty. They are not afraid of parties and groups carrying the name of Islam, destroying Islam more than enemies, since they have had propagandistic and armed struggle with them for years. Ruin of Afghanistan is not solely the result of wars among so-called Jehadi groups, but as Communists have confessed, they played an active role in starting war in Afghanistan and even among warlords and power-seekers of Jehadi groups. The Communists were not frightened of foreign powers either, since they are the communists' main supporters. In 1978 (1357LHY) the Communists took the power in Afghanistan, first with the assistance and later with military spread of Russians and in 2001 (1380LHY), some wings of Maoists and Soveitists were given positions in power along with looters (warlords) of achievements of Afghan people's Islamic holy Jehad as the result of the United States invasion to Afghanistan. European countries and even Pakistan are still the safe shelters for different communist parties particularly Afghanistan Maoists. Therefore, they are only afraid of Afghanistan people for the coverage of their real identity, this is a sign that they are strangers to people while introducing themselves dependant to people as well as their defenders. On the other hand, former and new political parties with any ideas and thoughts have been established on the basis of tribal and lingual inclinations which are due to social backwardness, practical disbelief and lack of dependency of leaders and officials of these groups to their intellectual and ideological principles. Although, some people from different ethnics might be found as members in these groups, but the leading and prevailing forces have special ethnical tendency which are obviously reflected in their functions and plans. Maoists groups are not excepted to this role, close investigation of disaccords, internal settlement of accounts and social formation of these groups reveals that ethnical and lingual inclinations have been used as means of personal and party superiority and as a factor to intensify the disagreements. Therefore, it seems that ethnic inclination in Afghanistan Solidarity Party is prominent, as their political positions toward domestic and foreign affairs even toward nomad fellows (Chadorneshinan) in "Ruzegaran" publication and in 17th part of their constitution are reflected. the articles of association of Solidarity Party indicates solely providing nomads with appropriate living conditions and services, without any attention to solve their main problem which is the usage of grasslands of others, that is currently converted to a national problem.
