Post via Islamic Emirate
Peace is the lost gem of every war-torn community who have struggled and sought it (peace) for years upon years. Peace embodies security, wellbeing and brotherhood between tribes and nations and it (peace) is a means of the moral and material prosperity of a people.
The Afghan nation was blessed with model peace and security. An Islamic system was established, tribal, lingual and race prejudices were abolished, power was centralized and those living inside Afghanistan treated each other with respect and brotherly love. The Islamic Emirate worked as a guardian force for its people, serving, protecting and giving people their due rights.
Then suddenly a storm came over our land from the west. It shattered the established peace and security and replaced it with fog of oppression and barbarity. It opened the flood gates of blood, screened the sun of justice and spread the fire of insecurity, immorality and corruption. The Afghan people cried collectively for peace and knocked on the doors of claimants of humanity and human rights, however their voices fell on deaf ears of the ‘civilized’ world as they blocked their ears and sewed their mouths in the face of unparalleled barbarity of the western invaders.
The Afghan nation has struggled for decade and a half against the western war machine and their internal auxiliary forces for the attainment of peace, moral and ethical development and security. They shall continue their fight until they have demolished the house of occupation and dismantled the idols of hate and deviance, and upon its ashes erected the house of freedom and beautified its cities with such exemplary peace and security that the dreams of the millions of martyrs (Islamic government) reigns supreme.
The Afghan nation has once again presented unprecedented sacrifices in the face of yet another invasion. They have taught the world that the lofty skyscraper of Islam and Afghan valor has never bowed down to terror and threats of any power. Yes, this towering Afghan valor is a witness to the demise of Genghis, English and Soviet Empires and recounts the stories of courage of its people and humiliation of invaders.
We are thirsty for peace, we want peace, we are prepared for peace, but we want true peace, not cosmetic makeovers where peace is used as leverage in war. We are committed to peace to the extent that we will sacrifice our lives for it, however we will not make peace at the expense of our Islamic principles and indepence.
We want everlasting peace where our religion is not ridiculed, our religious values are safeguarded, our Islamic rites respected and source of all rulings are the Holy Quran and Prophetic traditions. Where western culture is banished, foul ideologies of atheism and other aberrations abolished, where our national interests are protected, our frontiers preserved, national sovereignty secured and overall, the divine religion of Islam rules over everything, from government affairs to personal and communal interactions.
موږ په قراني زیور خپل وطن زیبا غواړو
نه یو غلامان د چا دین د مصطفی غواړو
With gems of sacrifice we seek to beautify our nation
We are not slaves to anyone we only seek the Prophetic religion (Islam)
