Afghan Whispers: Civil Society, Corruption & Secularism

Safrang writes about civil society in Afghanistan :

“As the world is becoming a small but global village such proceedings not only entails scattering within the human family but also undermines the efforts for peace and solidarity around the globe.

The civil society of Afghanistan, likewise, does not consider resorting to violence a rational solution to religious, social, cultural and political problems.

Therefore, we urge that people from all cultures, civilizations and religions, pave better grounds of dialogues with respect to and acceptance of one another. Realization of such a vision can liberate the human race from all forms of torture, contempt and humiliation as well as facilitates to have a beatific and immune life which every human being deserves in our common home, the earth.”

Sohrab Kabuli writes about overwhelming corruption in country and in government. He is also not optimistic about the London conference outcome. He says violence and drug smuggling is present everywhere.(Link in Persian)

Gap az Gap says in Afghanistan any secular and non-fundamentalist political conditions are steps towards freedom and better conditions for Afghan women and different oppressed ethnic groups. (Link in Persian)
