Afghanistan is not a safe place for Hazaras

In case of refugees, EU countries must consider Afghanistan as a dangerous place to live in, especially for those refugees who belong to hazara ethnicity and Shi’ite minority. After ISIS’s set back in Iraq where the group targets Shi’ites, Afghanistan’s Hazara people who are mostly Shi’ite, is the next target for ISIS to spread fear among and start its operation to kill civilians.
Today’s attack on Baqir-ul-Olum masque in the Western part of the city, where mostly Hazaras live in fully explain the situation of security in Afghanistan (given to this point that the attackers or ISIS has the potential to carry out attacks inside the capital) and Hazaras. During 2016 Today’s attack was the third largest attack planned by ISIS, after the attack on a rally in 23rd July and the attack at the night of Ashura inside one of the Shi’ites’s religious center/shrine. Related to this three attack, ISIS has claimed the responsibility and in its statements has declared that the group will continue targeting Shi’ites, Hazaras people.
As a result, please stop the deportation of Afghan refugees. Afghanistan is not a safe place, especially for Hazaras/Shi’ites.

Let The Love Ring.

After the collapse of the Taliban regime, Afghanistan’s people gradually start to celebrate many events, Valentine is one of those.
I remember the first time I heard the word “valentine” from TV, bought by my father shortly after the US Jets started to fly over my country’s sky.I was in my village on that time Then I came to kabul.
In kabul, When valentine gets closer, I noticed that The stores begin to import the Valentine’s Day stuffs, like jewelry which is made especially for Valentine. The restaurants, especially in kabul city and many other Afghanistan’s big cities like Mazar-e-Sharif, start to offer services for youth, coming to celebrate their day.
Celebrating the events like international women’s day (8th March) day, human rights day (10th, December) and Valentine’s Day (14th February) are those international events or days which are chosen to be celebrated among Afghanistan’s people -specifically youths.
Today (the time of writing this article) is the February, 4th 2016 and it is Valentine’s Day. In Kabul city, actually this time the celebration of the Valentine’s Day was started yesterday, especially in the social networks like Facebook which is more common among Afghanistan’s young generation. Users were posting photos, indicating the Love, Valentine’s Day and togetherness.
Today, when I walk out of the house, I was seeing the sign of Valentine’s Day (celebration) through the streets, alleys and other places. The florist’s (s) were designed with Valentine gifts, cards ànd flowers as there were people who were walking around to choose a gift for their beloved. Some were boys and some other were girls, I like to say that boys were alone in the flower shop as girls were with their girlfriends…
These all were the positive side and (normal) points of Valentine’s Day celebration in my city, kabul and generally Afghanistan.
Now let’s take a look at the barriers, standing in the way of celebration of Valentine’s Day.
Afghans have their own practices, traditions and culture. In Afghanistan, after almost one and half decades since the collapse of the Taliban regime, still there are violence against women, traditions which are avoiding to celebrate events which is related to the West or celebrated by. Still there are practices which do not allow the girls to choose their own way of living and their life partner. Still there are cultural rules and regulations, avoiding the girls to go outside. And there are people who believe that the Valentine’s Day is for the Christians, and west.
A few days ago, before the celebration of valentine gets started on Facebook, there were and still are, people who condemned the celebration and those who  celebrate the valentine.
Today, when I was outside, I saw many people who were not happy with the valentine. I was talking with a person who believed that the Valentine’s Day is being used by west, to weaken the faith of Muslim’s youths and mainly to weaken the Islamic culture, rules, regulations and root. I said to him that there are many couple who celebrate the event and they believe that the valentine is a day to strengthen their relationship and enjoy their togetherness. But he responded to me more harshly, he said “valentine is west’s tool to  distract the Muslim’s attention from their own beliefs, cultures and practices to the west’s and Christian’s. Those youths, girls and boys who celebrate the valentine are not real Muslim. And the couple who celebrate the day, are not Muslim”. I asked him why by celebrating the valentine, youths become unreal Muslim and couples are fully considered as unbelievers?. He said “the couple are bigger than youth people, and they should not be weak in their faith, instead of this, they should persuade youths not to be weaken, against west’s cultural invasion”.
I am happy we both were just the passengers of the car, carrying us to our destinations, and having the road without its heavy traffic was another goodness.
Now you tell me, is the state of being happy, dangerous for human beings? Is The Being in love with someone is dreadful for the society or any culture? Do you know a person who was lover or beloved, performed suicide attack or exploded the city and drowned the children and innocent people into their red blood? After many years, have you figured out that the (root) or even a single Islamic rule got damaged or demolished by celebration of Valentine’s Day?  NO!                                  Everything is demolished by those who claim that they are real Muslim, suicide bombers are those who believe by performing the attack they will get the heaven’s key, those who are against the Valentine’s Day, are those who are against humanity and human rights. If they get power, they will not allow to celebrate the international women’s day, also. they will not allow us to vote, because they believe that democracy is also west’s tool, like Valentine.  
Never mind!…
My dear friends!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
To Those who are in love…
To those who aren’t but believe that the Valentine’s Day and the celebration of other events like this, are the only tools to make the world a better place. No war, no violence and no those rules and regulations which are the main cause of demolitions and unhappiness.
live your life lovely, enjoy your moments of togetherness and let the love express your life story.
Let the love ring.

The Afghanistan Women’s Cycling Team Joins List Of Peace Prize Nominees.

The Afghanistan women’s cycling team is among the candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Afghanistan’s women’s cycling team has been introduced by 118 Italian legislators. All of these candidates are trying to bring peace in their societies across the globe. Nadia Murad, a woman who fled from ISIS and become the voice of thousands of women, was also introduced by the same Italian group. 
During three decades of war and violence, Afghan women were forced to be silent and behave like slaves. Finally they were deprived of everything, they became the patience stone. In that time especially during the Taliban’s dark regime, women were not allowed to go outside without a male member of the family. Going to school became a crime which was being counted against the cultural and traditional practices and Islamic rules and regulations. 
But now after almost 15 years, Afghanistan’s women are riding bikes to bring peace to their community. They are allowed to speak, to go outside, to work, and to participate in the society to show their existence. They have goals to be achieved and they are strong enough to fight every single barrier in the way.

The #moon_is_shining

alley, the longest in the city. Kind of  alleys that people are afraid of walking through them.
Night…The night before the moon get completed, in the winter of a tired year,  which its ground is; colored by the blood of a girl, a sister, a loved one and finally a human being by the name of Maryam.
Oh sorry, these days Maryam…
And there is no rain, no snow and even no cloud. People are reasoning, even though they know there is no reason behind this scenario.
Arrived at the end of that allay, he just realized that the allay goes no where.
HH…
A dead end.
The moon is shining, even though there is no felling about, he doesn’t believe in the shining of the moon anymore.
Why?
Well maybe once upon a time, it was such night, and it was the moon; shining when he saw the shiny face of his real moon.
