Islamic Emirate: Who are the True Enemies of Education?


Post via Islamic Emirate

Approximately three months from today Bashir Ahmad Rayyan – a student of languages and literature in Kandahar University – was busy completing his semester exams in the University compound when he was inexplicably arrested by the Kandahar security forces, handcuffed and blindfolded, he was taken to a black prison site. For three months he was held in custody without any charges and without a trial. During this time he was subjected to unspeakable forms of torture. Three days ago his body was found in a desert in Boldak district of Kandahar. His body showed marks of torture and deprivation, to Allah we belong and to Him we must return.

Unfortunately this is not the first time that the barbaric officials and forces of Kabul regime have mercilessly targeted the innocent civilians of Afghanistan so as to please their foreign bank-rollers. Especially the militias of the knave Raziq, who controls Kandahar city, and knows no limits of cruelty and barbarity, and has perpetuated hundreds of tortures and extra judicial killings against the innocent civilians of Afghanistan. Their brutality exceeds the proverbial barbarity of Genghis Khan. A few days ago a video was leaked that showed a member of this militia biting a morsel of meat off the arm of a civilian with his bare teeth. This video has been widely shared online and testifies to the cruelty of this militia.

Similarly this militia maintains its own prisons across Afghanistan and with the blessing of the Kabul regime they perpetuate all kinds of inhumane treatment of prisoners in these institutions. The Kabul regime which is daily losing territory foresees the coming doom and have now resorted to genocidal policies of indiscriminate killings and torture in order to forestall its fate.

Their hatred and insanity knows no bounds and now has reached the sacred halls of education institutions. Daily the mercenary militias of Kabul regime abduct students from across educational institutions and send them off to the darkness of the unknown. The daily disappearances of the students of Kandahar and Nangarhar Universities are clear examples of this conduct. All this while the officials of Kabul regime purport to be the champions of education and liberty of ideas while they accuse the Taliban of being the enemies of education.

Can anyone produce a single example over the course of the past twenty years where the Mujahideen have perpetrated a similar act against the seekers of knowledge? Can anyone produce a single example where the Mujahideen have mistreated a student without due Islamic judicial process?

Yet the American educated Kabul regime, along with their criminal officials and brutal militias regularly perpetuate human rights breaches against the locals and even against students in the educational sector.

The recent incident in Kandahar where the security forces forcefully abducted a University student and inhumanely tortured him to death, or the recorded video clip where the militias stop a bystander and under the pretext of being a Taliban drag him behind a Ford Ranger pickup truck and bite into his arm are clear examples of human rights breaches by the American-backed strongman of Kandahar. Yet the crippled Kabul regime failed to take any action against the perpetrators. So now we ask the world, who are the real enemies of education in Afghanistan?
