Default Youth rally against corruption in Kabul - 07-25-2012, 12:24 AM



Scores of youth, braving the hot weather, on Tuesday rallied in the capital Kabul against rampant corruption in government departments, urging the Karzai administration to translate its anti-graft slogans into action.
Calling for the prosecution of graft-tainted officials, the demonstrators chanted “Down with Land Grabbers”. The movement of files in government offices had gained momentum but corruption there had also reached new heights, they alleged.
The youth called for good governance, deploring Afghanistan’s dubious distinction of being the second most corrupt country in the world. However, they welcomed President Hamid Karzai’s commitment to combating corruption at the recent Tokyo Conference.
If the president desired, he would be stoutly supported by the youngsters, said the participants who marched from the Allauddin Square to the parliament building.
They asked lawmakers to unseat the state functionaries involved in corruption, violations of law and stashing away national wealth in foreign banks. The MPs had not dealt with the corrupt in an appropriate manner, the youth believed, urging them to convey people’s voice to the global fraternity.
A declaration issued at the end of the demonstration suggested the merger of all anti-corruption bodies into one powerful entity. It called for parliament to take effective steps against the menace of pervasive graft.
Mohammad Shafiq Popal, an organiser of the rally, told Pajhwok Afghan News that corruption was the most principal reason for the nation’s suffering. He added the yawning gap between the rulers and the ruled had forced many to swell the ranks of insurgents or indulge in other unlawful activities.

Even Adobe Photoshop can't change me.

A line[Durrand line] of hatred that raised a wall between the two brothers -Hamid Karzai

For generations, the Hindus of India prayed for deliverance from "the venom of the cobra, the teeth of the tiger and the vengeance of the Afghan."

The men of Kábul and Khilj also went home; and whenever they were questioned about the Musulmáns of the Kohistán (the mountains), and how matters stood there, they said, "Don't call it Kohistán, but Afghánistán; for there is nothing there but Afgháns and disturbances." Thus it is clear that for this reason the people of the country call their home in their own language Afghánistán, and themselves Afgháns. The people of India call them Patán; but the reason for this is not known. But it occurs to me, that when, under the rule of Muhammadan sovereigns, Musulmáns first came to the city of Patná, and dwelt there, the people of India (for that reason) called them Patáns—but God knows!

-Ferishta, 1560–1620

Its getting worst...by the day.

Workers are not being...paid

anything for..9 to 10 Months.

What are...these people

suppose to live...on?

Whiles Karzai's

foreign banks are getting...fatter.

Its heart..breaking to hear

the Mothers

and wife's...saying.

That their sons or..Husbands

are working such long...hours.

Yet no pay...a lot of

verbal...i owe you.


I believe the sun should never set upon an argument.
I believe forgiveness is the key to your unhappiness.

the potential for that exists, which makes it all the more important for diaspora youth to connect with the ones back home

through access to media and internet new generation afghans are more informed, and they are more skeptical of the older generation

we need a revolutionary youth movement in that country
