A new dawn has come to Afghanistan, under the “new and reformed” Taliban rule.
In it, the former communication and technology minister Syed Ahmad Shah Sadat has left the country and works in Germany as a pizza deliveryman. Likely seeing in which direction the wind was blowing, he left his post in 2020 and left for Germany.
Syed briefly worked as a CEO of a telecom company in London, and then the Oxford Graduate moved on to bigger projects, namely feeding the hungry (who can afford pizza).
Just months later, when former Afghan President Ashraf Ghani fled the country, he allegedly did so with millions of dollars lining up his pockets.
Ghani didn’t lack Sadat’s foresight and made sure that he would not have to work a mundane job. Still, in the spirit of the past days, the former communications minister said that “work is work” and every position needs to be filled, in a very romantic recall of communist times.
The Taliban, after fighting against the USSR for years and ultimately pushing it out of the country, seems to be applying its lessons in practice now.
Each Afghan citizen is safe, will have a job and will get what he needs, will be judged according to his abilities.
A vivid example of this is the new Interior Minister – Sirajuddin Haqqani, head of the brutal Haqqani Network and deputy Taliban military leader. As soon as he was made into a state official, the bounty on his head was raised from $5 to $10 million, clearly he is deserving and worthy. He serves as a beacon of those opposing the US.
Meanwhile, many around the world are concerned that terrorism will be on the rise in Afghanistan, but that is a small price to pay for progress.
So far, the society that’s forming seems rather “fair” – the former communications minister has a job abroad, Ashraf Ghani has millions, and one of the most wanted terrorist gets a ministerial post.
But these are all men, what about the women?
Women should feel safe in Afghanistan, according to the Taliban. On September 9th, a group of women protested the hardline, all-male Taliban government, calling for diversity in governance.
The response they received was surprising, due to the Islamic group’s claims, but was expected. The women were attacked with sticks, stones and even whipped for attempting to put forward any form of demand or opinion.
Female cricket was banned, and curtains were introduced in universities so that male and female students were separated. Of course, the Taliban could say that being able to attend university at all is good enough. Women have nothing to worry about now, apart from the traditional European values of children, kitchen and Church (or in this case, Mosque).
With the indirect assistance of the United States, democracy and traditional family and community values were promoted! To make sure that all are satisfied and happy, the Taliban banned all protests that are not pre-approved by the movement.
The equal and safe society that the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is building is becoming a reality with each passing day.
