Kabul Bleeds


How hard it is see people have to die for the sake of a national interest that’s going to benefit the entire country, not only a particular zone.

In other societies, the governments educate their nations when it is about the matter of their national interests. But in Afghanistan,  everything goes against it.

Dozens of people must die in order establish the fact that “yes” the national interest does matter.  And it matters to the entire nation not only to a particular zone. Instead, it should be respected and protected even if it costs so many things to loose.
If the power line crosses the route from Bamyan who will benefit? Is that another separate state inside Afghanistan? Isn’t it a part of that country called “Afghanistan”? Does rolling a nation has to be at the cost of human lives? Does it really give any sense to be still calling it a democratic society where its government turns this hard towards its people?
What happens if the power line crosses a route that is actually “a part of this country”? The government must be a good friend to its people and best protector in every sensible way. The government has an obligation to give protection to every individual – living as a citizen of that state!
Today, I read different articulation about the ongoing protest. However, the bitter parts I have silently read were in comments about the innocent souls. Every heart bleeds when a human suffers. And it bleeds harder when a human is steeped in blood. Not matter how that human looks like and what mark does that own.   We have completely forgotten caring for a race that’s “humanity” unless a human does not have an special mark on that’s similar to one specific MARK.
What if the entire nation from any ethnic groups stop living in hatred  and begin live in harmony for we have all lost so many souls? Perhaps, we have lost everything during the last decades of war. Maybe it is enough soaking the warm blood. It’s about time, we the “war torn” nation stopped these all for the sake of our new generation so that they shouldn’t follow the same footsteps and live in isolation; separated from their family and isolated from their home lands for the mass the current generation create today.
For me, every human matters. For me every one with any mark from that land called “Afghanistan” matters. I understand how it feels when one lives in supersession and isolation. It really matters when one is called AFGHAN.

I send my deepest thoughts to the families of the victims who have lost their loved ones in today’s inhuman act of violence that caused huge human losses. I also pray for the immediate recovery of the injured ones. May Allah Bless Afghanistan with his best blessings of unity, equality, justice and love among the entire ethnic groups with any special and non-special marks.
