Afghanistan – A Broken Country That Was Full Of Hopes

Posted on 08 September 2010 Crni

Today’s prejudices about Afghanistan are a barbarian country that will never make it out of the Middle Ages. A country full of chaos, poverty and a huge difference between the rights for men and women. Still a lot of people don’t know that this has not always been the issue with this country. In the 1950s and ’60s women interacted freely with men and went to college where all the students wore Western-inspired clothes. Education and knowledge was valued, the country had a government that could deal with a lot of problems, and people were optimistic – they believed in a future.

Today women are all covered up with little rights that’s making them submissive, the population is poor and has little medical care and the country is suffering more and more every day. Who would have thought that the future would bring so much misery to Afghanistan? Nobody, but that kind of misery is what you’ll get after 30 years of war.

    Interesting. It’s a shame they receded to the stone age and now want the rest of the world to go with them.
