In 2001, when America invaded Afghanistan, their domestic supporters were very happy assuring the Afghan people regarding initiation of big projects in agricultural, industrial and other economical sectors and promising a prosperous and comfortable life. But now after one and half decade, 200,000 afghan have fled to European countries according to international surveys conducted in 2015 because of unemployment and poverty. This constitutes 20 percent of all immigrants gone to Europe. Unfortunately, in most cases they face discrimination. Moreover three million Afghans are addicted to drugs. The main reasons are economical and social problems and the spread of foreign culture. Furthermore, forty percent of the people of Afghanistan are living under the poverty line and economical growth of the country is less than two percent. This is the economical and social situation of Afghanistan in the epoch of invasion and democracy.
These problems have emanated from the corruption which has reached its peak level in the rungs of the Kabul Administration. Similarly, because of incompetency, the institutions and ministries of Kabul regime is merely spending 30 to 40 percent of the allotted budget while other budget amount remains unspent. But these expenses are also ghost figures because of corruption. The amounts are shown as having been spent on the face of government documents but in reality, it goes to the pockets of warlords and high profile officials.
No big dam has been constructed in the country during past one and half decade. In industrial sector, the existing factories have stopped functioning. Two thousand national businessmen have returned their business licenses to Kabul Administration during the past few weeks because of mafia abductions and other problems.
The invaders are speaking of having spent more than 35 billion dollars during past fifteen years but practically there is no tangible sign rather a great amount of these expenses have gone to the pockets of foreign and domestic contractors.
International surveys show that besides ghost soldiers and schools, there are tens of ghost health clinics as well. Their salaries are paid and medication delivered but in reality there is no school and clinic. Consequently, now tens of thousands children in Afghanistan lose their lives from preventable diseases like diarrhea and pneumonia while other one millions are malnutrition. Still, leaders of Kabul Administration are speaking about achievements in Afghanistan but they are neglecting the fact that they have always held third, second, or first position in corruption and injustice according to annual reports of Transparency International index and International Justice Organization. These surveys are not published by anti-western organizations rather conducted by NGOs formed by the West and run under their management.
The Islamic Emirate believes that flight of the youth from the country as a result of the anomalies of the incompetent and surrogate administration is an anathema in addition to other problems. It would have negative impacts on the future of the country and it also proves that prosperity and progress of the countrymen could not be achieved under the shadow of occupation. Therefore, Islamic Emirate is struggling for a genuine independence and Islamic system in the country, so that, all Afghan will remain in their homeland and will not be compelled to go to foreign countries. Their abilities will be utilized in the development, prosperity and well-being of their own country and they will lead a prosperous, creative and honorable life in their own country.
