Most recents (24)

In analysing the history of #Afghanistan, scholars and historians often assessed the independence and autonomy of a given region based on their ability to resist an imposition of tax. Paying levies was therefore the way power-relations and supremacy was understood. 5/N.K.
In this sense, the #Hazarajat as a whole was what scholars often deemed as a “semi-independent” region. By 1891, aside from #Uruzgan, every other region (14 districts) of the #Hazarajat paid taxes to Abdur Rahman Khan. 6/N.K.
Most regions throughout the #Hazarajat were headed by ‘mirs’ or ‘khans’ and a system of feudalism operated throughout this sphere. 7/N.K.

The spike in attacks in Afghanistan is an attack on President @realDonaldTrump 's peace plan for Afghanistan, and an attack on Pakistan's role in it. /1

The assassination attempt on @AmrullahSaleh2 is part of the effort to derail Pres #Trump's peace plan for #Afghanistan; comes just 4 days after #Pakistan Federal Minister visited #Panjshir Valley & Mausoleum of Cdr Ahmed Shah Massoud, in a major policy shift for Pakistan.
The visit by @ShehryarAfridi1 to the #Panjshir mausoleum of Cdr Ahmed Shah Massoud marked a policy shift in #Pakistan away from #Taliban, indicating equal respect for all #Afghans, & support from #Islamabad for the exceptional efforts of @US4AfghanPeace

With #US sanctions on #Iran, this is the time for #Pakistan to squeeze #Tehran on #IRGC's destabilization inside Pak+alliance with #India in #Afghanistan+#Chabahar. #Islamabad should leverage IRGC's use of Pakistani markets/ports for smuggling and evading
#US sanctions. #Pakistan should not look away this time as it did during #Iran-#Iraq war in 80s when #IRGC used Pak facilities to dodge sanctions. Let's remember how the Pasdaran, who are #India's allies in Iran, bluntly threw Dr AQ Khan under the bus in 2003 creating the biggest
crisis for #Pakistan's nuclear program, and how #Iran joined #India diplomats in openly lobbying #China to end #CPEC part of #BRI bcz "#Balochistan is not safe" while sponsoring terrorism to ensure #Beijing changes its mind. This is the moment to isolate

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.

Noor: I send my prayers to the souls of all the martyrs who sacrificed themselves to pave the way for today’s freedom.
Noor: We shouldn’t suffice ourselves to only commemorating the anniversaries of our martyrs. We should follow their ways and legacies. A country that has martyrs doesn’t have submission.

A lot of chatter from American media about "Time to bring our boys home" & wasting "hundreds of billions of dollars" on #Afghanistan's "endless war". Well, let me tell you the story of the US led presence in #Afghanistan from an Afghan perspective based on facts.Follow my tweets.
1-After 9/11, US led international forces with support from anti-Taliban fighters defeated the extremist group in a few weeks. Having been tired of Taliban's repressive regime which had pushed #Afghanistan to dark ages, the #Afghan people welcomed the US led international forces.
2-The Afghan people, who were traumatised by years of conflict under #Taliban &warlords, came out in large numbers to participate in the country's 1st presidential elections in 2004. They elected Karzai. Optimisim for a brighter future was palpable across the country.

"We [#Taliban] don’t want the U.S. to leave Afghanistan the way Russians left. We have told them that after ending your military intervention, we will welcome U.S. engineers, doctors and others if they want to come back for reconstruction of #Afghanistan." - Abbas Stanikzai
"Islamic Emirate [#Taliban] has categorically told them [Americans] all foreign soldiers whether they are here for combat or training purposes will have to exit because our jihad [holy war] will continue till the last foreign soldier is present in #Afghanistan." - Stanikzai
"It is impossible for us to engage in direct talks with the #Kabul administration until all U.S. and NATO troops pull out from #Afghanistan. We told them [U.S.] that the Kabul government is not legitimate and is the product of American military pressure."

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
