Post via Islamic Emirate August 19th 2019
Exactly one hundred years earlier (28th Assad 1298), the righteous Mujahid Afghan nation won independence of their beloved homeland (Afghanistan) from the English imperialists and forced them to officially recognize the sovereignty of Afghanistan. The Afghan Mujahid nation – under the leadership and with the fatwa of noble scholars and spiritual guides – waged Jihad and War of Independence against the British colonizers for eighty whole years, defeating them thrice and forcing them out of their proud land.
The indefatigable struggle of our Mujahid forefathers against the English imperialists not only resulted in the freedom of Afghanistan but it blessed nations under the oppression of colonialists in the region and throughout the world with the spirit of freedom and resistance. It sparked armed struggles against the western occupiers around the world and these same uprisings resulted in them gaining their independence.
It is due to the blessings of the Jihadi endeavors and gaining independence by our forefathers a century earlier that our nation has remained committed to its religious and cultural values and be able to keep alive their creed, ideology, culture, mother language and all spiritual values even as most occupied societies became alien to their own heritage and adopted the colors of their colonizers.
Just as our Mujahid predecessors waged Jihad against the English and Soviet occupiers in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the Islamic Emirate – with the help of Allah (SwT) and support of its believing nation – has also kept the fronts of Jihad simmering and is leading a national uprising against the American invaders and her allies in the twenty-first century.
We convey to the current occupiers that not only have you failed to pacify the Jihadi uprising of the valiant Muslim Afghans despite using force and experimenting with various strategies for two decades, demolishing homes, crops and social centers and overcrowding Guantanamo, Bagram and other open and secret prisons with Afghans but on the contrary, your territorial control is being restricted with each passing day and you are being forced to take refuge behind towering blast walls in city centers. Therefore, we advise you to leave Afghanistan to the Afghans and take heed from the history of this Graveyard of Empires.
Fortunately, the ongoing eighteen-year Jihad against the current invaders being led by the Islamic Emirate has reached a stage where the occupiers are making preparations for the withdrawal of their forces.
The Islamic Emirate extends its felicitation to the entire Mujahid nation on the occasion of 100th Anniversary of Independence Day and feels a sense of pride in following the footsteps of our forefathers by leading the current resistance (Jihad) and maintaining support of its nation against the American invaders.
With the blessing of this Jihad, the day approaches closer when these invaders shall completely leave our country akin to the British and Soviets before them and the believing Afghan nation shall again raise the banner of honor and independence as they did a century earlier, Allah willing.
