As one who has been involved in the affairs of our beloved Homeland for over 35 years I have been a witness to the almost destruction of our culture, history and independence.
I have painfully seen the Martyrdom of tens of thousands of our fellow countrymen and women, at the hands of the Afghan Communists and the invading Red Army of the Soviet Union.
Our once proud and united nation, is now tearing at the seams. Our educated young are fleeing in great numbers to countries far beyond our borders. The decade long enemies of our nation, the Taliban, supported by neighboring countries, are taking control of major areas of different Provinces.
In short, brothers and sisters, this Great Land, which we call home and one which is our inheritance from our Forefathers, who fought for its Independence and one which was bestowed upon us as a Gift by Allah All Might (SWT), is in grave danger.
My fellow Afghans, we must accept the facts that all AFGHANS, regardless of ethnicity, religion, color or creed are ONE. We must encourage and promote all AFGHANS to support the future of Afghanistan and the prosperity of our people. Before self, before party, before tribe, our common bond empowers us all to forge a peaceful, unified Islamic Nation with a shared objective, within which we all are free to appreciate and celebrate the rich cultural diversity of our past.
Allah (SWT) has blessed our country with the resources needed for dramatic growth into a modern and progressive nation.
- Our fertile grounds have long been a source of the food that fed our people. Our rich agricultural history, vividly exemplifies our ability to grow and prosper.
- Our natural resources, can be developed for the good our entire nation and can be the foundation of a modern nation.
- Our cultural tradition scholarship, music and art can inspire our people to create new possibilities.
- Our modern communications gives us the ability to work together, drawing on the wisdom of the ages, to build a new awareness and speak in one voice.
Our most important asset is our dedicated, hard-working people. may they be young and old, rich and poor, women and men, Northerners or Southerners. Together we can mould our Tribal and Ethnic traditions into an invigorated national force, propelling Afghanistan forward into the 21st. Century. We can draw on the scholarships of Kandahar, the Music of Heart, the Wisdom of Balkh and the historical bravery of our people, to build our new Afghan Nation
The flowering of Afghanistan will be a light for the Muslim World. A beacon for all of humanity to see how a dedicated people can transform their lives and their country.
My fellow Afghans, we owe it to our children and their descendants, to make Afghanistan blossom, to lead Afghanistan to a new life, to light the flame of Afghan renewal.
I, therefore, beseach all of my brothers and sisters to see the bright future before us and unite to prosper.
May Allah All Mighty (SWT) be with you all.
As an Afghan American and as the President of the National Coalition for Dialogue with The Tribes on Afghanistan, it is with deep pain and sorrow that I must regrettably come to terms with the fact that the Evil of ISIS/ISIL, like the poison of a snake, had entered the blood of one crazy Afghan/American , called Omar Mateen, the son of an equally crazy individual who has proclaimed himself as the president of Afghanistan.
Our hearts bleed with the sorrow that this follower of the Wahabi Sect of Saudi Arabia, has inflected death upon so many innocent people, whose only fault was to be in the right place to share a good time with friends and compatriots. The last thing on their minds were that a lunatic, influenced by the blood thirsty ISIS would end their lives so violently.
Whereas on Face Book and You Tube, the father who had sired the murderer Omar, had at times referred to himself as being a Pakistani, at other times have claimed to be a Pushtoon, Afghan, does not have any knowledge of the Pushto Language, yet he claims to be their self proclaimed president. His incoherent and inaudible speeches have made him a laughing stock of the hard working and dedicated Afghans, those who have embraced the USA as their new home and have become productive members of the Afghan /American Society. Contributing positively to the regions where they reside and live in peace and honor with their American neighbors.
The last thing that any one us Afghans who have embraced this great country as our new home, expected one of us, although born in the USA, but still having an Afghan heritage, would commit such a heinous and deplorable act. If in his sick mind, supported by an equally sick father, he thought this blatant act was going to terrorize society, he was wrong. If anything, it has united all, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus and other honorable members of religions to unite and stand as one against any such future murderous acts. This was not an action that any follower of any respectable, historical religions would commit in the name of anyone’s God, Yaweh or Allah.
This murderer of the innocent, even dead, will have to answer for his criminal action through the members of his family and those who were close to him. For I do not believe that his lust for blood just happened. He had thought it through and as such, those close to him, his dysfunctional father, mother, relatives, those attending the mosque must have sensed some sinister attitude or behavior on his part that should have wrung alarm bells. If so and they did not report him to the proper authorities the they too must feel responsible for what took place in Orlando. Knowing and being silent is just as guilty as the those who commit the act.
When community fails to intercept, to seek council and guidance from professionals- Society and humanity declines into senseless destruction, as it unfortunately, became a reality in the murder of 50 innocent people and the injury to 53 others.
Our tears will not bring back those who have lost their lives so senselessly. But if it helps, as a proud Afghan, I can assure our American brothers and sisters, that we, whom you have welcomed to your country with open arms and hearts, stand by you in your time of grief. We share your tears and loss. We consider ourselves as the only true friends of the Americans, in the part of the world which has espoused the degenerate ISIS/IDSIL/DAESH, followers of the Wahabi religion which only believe in Jihad and murder of all those who will not adhere to their sick beliefs.
In the end, please be assured that this murderer Omar Mateen, doe not represent the real Afghans and Afghanistan. We would like nothing better, than to see that the authorities in the USA would deport the entire family to Pakistan, where the father claims to come from and the let the Pakistani Authorities deal with them as they please. Or send them to Saudi Arabia to live and rot among their “heroes” the ISIS/ISIL/DAESH
The US Authorities must show those seeking asylum in the USA that to be a Citizen of this great nation, is a privilege not a RIGHT. And if they abuse that right, then they have no place in this nation and must be deported.
May the souls of our brothers and sisters who died in Orlando, rest in Peace and may they be received in the Kingdom of God. And ay those who are injured, be cured and returned to their loved ones.
Afghanistan Is About to Cut A Bad Deal with a Bad Guy: (International media)
The media refers to Gulbudin Hekmatyar as a Bay Guy. In the eyes of the civilized world, he is a mass murderer, who after killing thousands, went into hiding in Pakistan, where he was supported by the Pakistan Military viz the ISI, since Taliban’s appearance on the Afghanistan scene.
While in Pakistan, he continued his murderous activities on the Afghan citizens, through his dogs, (one wing of the Taliban). He was declared a terrorist by the USA government and a reward of 5 million dollars was placed on his head.
Now, in order to show the world that peace can be achieved with the Taliban. the NUG, mainly at the behest of its Providers, is bringing this killer of tens of thousands of innocent Afghans and multitude of NATO forces, specially the French who operated in Tagao and Suroobi, back to the nations that he devastated during the ethnic war and beyond.
As an Afghan/American, who has devoted the past 30+ plus years working for a better Afghanistan, I would like to ask our “Western Friends” one question… what crime have the Afghan people committed against their friends, the Americans, and other 47 Nations, in order for them to impose furher misery on a population who have suffered so much for long, by wanting to sign a deal with Gulbuddin Hekmatyar?
Are they unaware of the Crimes against the Afghans that this terrorist has committed? One of my own friends, a female journalist was kidnapped and molested by these animals.
The West is still hunting for Nazis, got rid of Saddam Hussain and Khaddafy and are pushing to get rid of Bashar, for crimes against humanity, yet they will accept a murderer far worst than any mentioned herein. Are we Afghans not part of the human race? Do we not deserve humanity values and justice?
Is this the reward that is being bestowed upon us for sacrificing almost 3 million of our countrymen/women, fighting the Red Army and freeing the world from the threat of Communism. Where is justice for Afghanistan and the Afghan people. Is selling Afghanistan just, in order to save legacies?
I call upon our American friends, our French friends, our Canadian friends and others who lost their sons and daughters serving in Afghanistan, at the hands of such murderers as the Gulbuddin Hekmatyar terror groups. to raise your voices with us and shout that you will not accept the killer of yours and our children to walk freely in the country where he committed these heinous crimes. This man should be pulled into the International Court of Justice, and tried for his crimes against humanity.
I call upon President Ashraf Ghani and CEO Abdullah Abdullah, not to degrade and disgrace the souls and memories of those martyred by this gangster. For if you do, then one day, perhaps you too will have to answer to the Afghan people, the question…. “WHY”?
By dealing with Hekmayuar, the NUG is doing exactly what the Pakistani Military have been dreaming for decades. Ten fingers into Afghanistan to control its Foreign Policy making decisions. The re-kindling of the British Policy of yesteryear for Afghanistan.
I call upon all Afghans, inside and outside of the Motherland to raise your voices, contact the authorities and force the NUG to abandon such a criminal act. The NUG does not have the right to let such murderers back into the country at any cost. This man cannot bring peace to Afghanistan. He will bring further shame, disgrace and bloodshed to the nation that rejected him decades ago. He was, is and always will be a Pakistani ISI servant.
May Allah hear the cries of the besieged people of Afghanistan. May he bestow wisdom in the minds of those who claim leadership in Afghanistan. May He save Afghanistan from the hands of all those who meant it harm.
