Mullah Agha Jan Mutasim’s declaration on 37th anniversary of the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan

 

mutasim-english

It is now thirty seven years since the Red Army invaded our beloved country, Afghanistan

No less than four decades, thirty seven years ago this week, Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan, yet the material and moral damages inflicted due to the incursion are still fresh and the Afghans are continuing to feel the brunt  it

Although the incursion into Afghanistan was under direct command of the Red Army’s military, it was led by a single person who was Afghan and attributed to this territory

Indeed, Babrak Karmal led the Soviet invasion, whose speech against Hafizullah Amin regime had been broadcast by Afghan voice radio from Tashkent, the capital of Uzbikistan prior to Babrak’s arrival in Kabul who was later taken to Kabul under the Red Army’s tanks escort in which the Soviet Union forces, simultaneously stormed the Tajbeg Palace in Afghanistan and assassinated Hafizullah Amin in his the residence

The incursion of the Red Army on the night of Dec. 24, 1979, corresponding to 6th of Jadi, 1358 Solar Hijri calendar is seen as the beginning of the prolonged tragedy we are still suffering from after the passage of almost four decades

The tragedy spelled dooms for millions of Afghan Muslim nation and left our country in ruins, forcing millions of Afghanistan to abandon their country

The Muslim Afghans with indomitable courage put up strong resistance to the Soviet Union’s ruthless invasion and occupation and brought the great military power of the mighty Red Army to its knee at an international level, eradicating the communist empire from the surface of the Earth

The tragedy generated in the context of the Soviet Union invasion did not end following the withdrawal of the Red Army troops from Afghanistan but further  prolonged, giving birth to various kinds of catastrophes, crises, agonies and sufferings for the Afghans

With the Red Army’s pullout, the country was plunged into such violence and unfortunate internal conflicts due to a struggle for power that the Afghans lost their pride they had won during the war against the Red Army and our country was brought on the brink of much destruction and devastation

The 37th anniversary of the Soviet Union invasion comes as our country, soon after liberation from the U.S occupation, was pushed further into the wave of unrest and civil war due to the internal strife and intra-Afghan conflicts, while the reign of terror inflicted by this spread all over the country with a feeling of grief and mourning centering every home

The bereaved mothers continue to mourn death of the youths whose funeral come out their homes and who leave behind helpless orphans in much despair

Would that the sides involved in the ongoing tragedy, learning from the past bitter experience, choose a viable course to end decades of conflict and suffering that leads to a lasting peace so as to ensure the progress and smooth the way for the troubled nation to live in peace and at ease

Wasallam

Mullah Agha Jan Mutasim, the former head of Taliban’s Political Commission
