Just another reminder of what happens to a country once dominated by Islam. It transforms from a somewhat happy and secure land into a barbaric Islamic cesspool of subjugation, torture, death and destruction. Here’s a site on older Afghanistan you might enjoy visiting.H/T to Zilla, visit and read her excellent post.
The following are excerpts from a September 25, 2001 article in The Gazzette (Colorado Springs) by Cary Leider Vogrin about how life was for women in Afghanistan before the Taliban took over.
Soraiya Edressi Totakhail pushes a piece of paper across her desk toward a visitor. On it is a grainy, black-and-white computer printout of Queen Soraya, who helped rule Afghanistan in the 1920s.
“Look at what she’s wearing,” Totakhail said Monday, pointing to the queen’s sleeveless gown. No Afghan woman, she said, would dare dress like that today for fear of being stoned – or even executed – by the Taliban.
To Totakhail, the picture illustrates the “human rights catastrophe” that has occurred in her native country under the Taliban rule.
Our friend Zilla of the resistance has an excellent post on pre Taliban Afghanistan. Please pay a visit.
