“Common Afghanistan may treat themselves most unfortunate people for willy-nilly they are caught in the whirlpool of one war after another and battered by one drought after another and became the easy pawn in the chess game being played by countries, earlier the Soviet Union and now the Britian, USA.”

The bigoted rulers of Taliban regime, had withdrawn all fundamental rights of the people and put the country into a state of medieval barbarism and made it a safe haven for the terrorists. It was on September 11, 2001 that the world woke up to the dangers of the terrorist attack. A group of Al-Qaeda terrorists, guided and supported by the Taliban leader Osama Bin Laden based in Afghanistan, struck terror in the USA in a big way. They hijacked four US planes from some US civilian airports. While one of these planes hit against the US headquarters in Pentagon, another two planes brought down the towering World Trade Centre. Killing at least 5000 innocent US citizens. The fourth, luckily, missed the target. It was, the report say, scheduled to hit the white house. The residence of the US president.

George Bush, the President of the USA, Swung into action and ordered the US air force to attack Afghanistan and bring the terrorists to book. In a massive attack, the Talibans were defeated and destroyed. As a result, a new government came to control Afghanistan. Mr. Hamid Karzai was chosen as the head of the interim government. He is an Afghan aristocrat and a leader of the powerful Popalzai clan, one of the four main tribes of the Pashtun ethnic group, that dominates southern Afghanistan. Mr. Karzai command due respect in his clan and regarded as a leader of new generation. His father Abdullah Ahad Karzai served for several year in the Afghan parliament as a close associate of the royal family. Mr. Abdullah Ahad Karzai was killed by Taliban Soldiers in 1999 in Quetta where he had been mobilizing support for loya Jirga to challenge Taliban rule.

On June 10, 2002 the loya Jirga, the traditional Ham id Karzai, the 44 year old chairman of the interim government of Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban in December 2001, became the president, six months later. He was swept into the post in June 2002 by an extra ordinary grand council (`loya Jirga), of 1650 Afghan elders, representing all regions and ethnicities.

The draft provides for political parties, whose charter do not contradict the principles of Islam. It also recognizes Pashto and Dari as the official languages, but with a provision for the national song to be sung in Pashto alone. The draft prohibits any kind of discrimination and privilege between the citizens of Afghanistan. The citizens of Afghanistan will enjoy equal rights and duties before the law. The constitution enshrines king Mohammed Zaheer Shah, 88 years, “Father of the Nation” but he will not have official political role and this title will not be passed on to his heirs. The constitution paved the way of democratic government in the country and an atmosphere of peace, property and security is hoped to prevail in the country.

Thus, it established regular high level exchange on political, security and economic issues on mutual interest. Which would turn out to be very useful for Afghanistan in coming future.

The USA has well realized and learnt a never forgettable lesson and has paid through the loss of WTO for nurturing terrorists like Osama. Now USA has wage war against terrorism anywhere in the world for the fear of its own vulnerability to terrorists strikes anytime, anywhere. The new rulers of Afghanistan, the existing warring groups or the militia must realize that they can’t get anything permanently through violence.
