  • Afghanistan - Najibullah profile

    T/I: 10:11:04 The victorious Taliban militia justified the hanging of former Afghan president Najibulla in Kabul on Friday (27/9) by condemning him as a communist "murderer." A senior Taliban official said Najibullah was "unanimously" sentenced to death by religious scholars and the Taliban's central council for "violating" the rights of Afghan people. Najibullah was dragged out of the United Nations office where he had sheltered for the past four and a half years and was hanged on a public street. The fifty-year old former President had been under UN protection since sweeping victories by the Mujahadeen in 1992 ended his six-year iron rule under the patronage of the Soviets. Najibullah's government collapsed after a civil war led by Mujahedeen groups who have now been swept a...

From the 19th century and through the twentieth century the rulers of Afghanistan consistently attempted to lessen women's restrictions in the country. Among them was King Amanullah, who ruled from 1919 to 1929 and made some of the more noteworthy changes in an attempt to modernize the country. King Amanullah, promoted freedom for women in the public sphere in order to lessen the control that patriarchal families had over women.

While in power in Afghanistan, the Taliban became notorious internationally for their discrimination against women due to religious beliefs. But that was not always the case with Afghan women. From the 19th century and through the twentieth century the rulers of Afghanistan consistently attempted to lessen women's restrictions in the country. Among them was King Amanullah, who ruled from 1919 to 1929 and made some of the more noteworthy changes in an attempt to modernize the country. King Amanullah, promoted freedom for women in the public sphere in order to lessen the control that patriarchal families had over women. He stressed the importance for young girls and women to receive an education. Students from elementary and middle schools emulated their counterparts in the European countries learning about nature trails, camping and public safety. Along with encouraging families to send their daughters to school, he promoted the unveiling of women and persuaded them to adopt a more western style of dress. In 1921, he created a law that abolished forced marriage, child marriage, bride price, and put restrictions on polygamy, a common practice among households in Afghanistan. Modern social reform for Afghan women began when Queen Soraya made rapid reforms to improve women's lives and their position in the family. In 1946 Queen Humaira created the Women's Society which was the first ever women's institute in Afghanistan. In 1959 she supported the call by the Prime Minister Mohammed Daoud Khan for women to voluntary removal the veil by removing her own. In 1964 women helped to draft Afghanistan's third constitution, which gave women the right to vote and opened the doors of elected office to women. It was not unusual for men and women to casually mingle at movie theatres and on university campuses. On coming to power in April 1978, the PDPA government began to implement serious reforms favoring women such as eliminating the bride price, educating women and freeing them from the burqa. During this time it made significant advances towards modernization. More women were able to hold jobs as scientists, teachers, doctors, and civil servants and had a considerable amount of freedom with significant educational opportunities. They formed childcare centers in their workplaces to make it easier for women to work. Maternity leave was extended to three months from six weeks and they were still getting their salary." The Afghan government also began mass literacy campaigns and provided free medical care. They banned bride price and forced marriage among others and the minimum age for marriage was raised among other advances in both matrimonial and women's rights. They also stressed the importance of education in Afghanistan. The government stressed education for both women and men; they also set up literacy programs in the country. During communist rule, the PDPA government reformed the education system; education was stressed for both sexes, and widespread literacy programs were set up. By 1988, women made up 40 percent of the doctors and 60 percent of the teachers at Kabul University; 440,000 female students were enrolled in different educational institutions and 80,000 more in literacy programs. The majority of women, however, lived in poverty and were excluded from these opportunities. In 1977, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) was founded by Meena Keshwar Kamal in Kabul which launched a bilingual magazine titled Woman's Message (Payam-e-Zan) Sixty percent of the instructors at Kabul University and 65 percent of the student body were women. Family courts, in some cases presided over by female judges, had replaced the mullahs' sharia courts. The number of working women increased 50-fold. By 1987, there were an estimated 245,000 women working in fields ranging from construction, printing and food processing to radio and TV journalism and especially teaching, where they made up 70 percent of the workforce. Everything changed for women when the Taliban rose to power in early 1995 and set up a radical Islamic state in Afghanistan in 1996. Women and girls were systematically discriminated against and marginalized. They were severely restricted in their access to education, healthcare and employment. Women, who had led fruitful lives fulfilling roles as doctors and teachers, were now finding themselves destitute - some resorting to begging on the streets or even prostitution. Women were not allowed to work, they were not allowed to be educated after the age of eight, and until then were permitted only to study the Quran. Women seeking formal education were forced to attend underground schools, where they and their teachers risked execution if caught. They faced public flogging and execution for violations of the Taliban's laws.

But so far they've given no indication they'll accept this invitation. Prime Minister Gulbuddin Hekmatyar's convoy arriving in Kabul Wednesday. The new Prime Minister was sworn into office with the support of most of the country's warring factions. Hekmatyar's Hizb-e-Islami troops escorted the new prime minister to the ceremony. Hekmatyar was received by his former enemy now turned ally, President Burhanuddin Rabbani. The alliance ended four years of feuding that has destroyed much of the Afghan capital and killed more than 25-thousand people. The conflict began almost immediately after the communist regime was toppled in 1992, when the fighters turned their weapons on each other. For many the new government marks a new era in Afghanistan. But not everyone is optimistic. Taliban forces besieging the city marked Hekmatyar's swearing in ceremony with their heaviest rocket and artillery attack in months. At least 40 people were killed and another 130 were injured. The assault was a response to the Hekmatyar-Rabbani alliance. Taliban leaders want the Kabul government overthrown and want President Rabbani and Hekmatyar to be tried as war criminals. Wednesday's attack has many people fearing a fresh round of fighting. Hekmatyar, who is meeting Thursday with factional leaders, has invited the Taliban to join the new coalition with Rabbani. So far, rockets and shells have been their only reply.

Various, Afghan troops STORYLINE: A suicide car bomber and three armed militants apparently wearing explosives vests and burqas, attacked a United Nations compound in western Afghanistan on Saturday, but Afghan security forces killed the attackers and no UN employees were harmed, officials said. The Afghan Ministry of Interior said three guards working at the compound were injured. A spokesman for ISAF (United Nations International Security Assistance Force) said all UN staff had been accounted for. The daring attack began when four militants drove up to the UN compound in a car packed with explosives, according to Dilawar Shah Dilawar, deputy police chief of heart province. From the car, they fired a rocket toward the entrance, he said. They tried without success to blow up the gate and drive inside the compound but when that didn't work, said Dilawar, three of the militants got out of the car and the fourth blew up the vehicle, killing himself. The explosion destroyed the gate, allowing the three to get inside. He added that three attackers were wearing police uniforms covered with burqas and that all of them had suicide vests and AK-47s. Guards at the UN compound and Afghan policemen engaged in sporadic gun fights with the three attackers, who were eventually killed by Afghan security forces. Initial reports indicated that NATO forces also responded, but that could not be immediately confirmed. The attack was similar to one in July in Kunduz in northern Afghanistan when Taliban suicide attackers used a car to blow a hole in the wall of a compound of a contractor for the US Agency for International Development in an attack that killed a Briton, a German and two Afghans. Five men wearing suicide bomb vests poured into the compound and fought a five-hour gunbattle with Afghan security forces before being killed. Separately, NATO forces killed two civilians, including a teenage boy, during a fight with insurgents on Saturday in Wardak province in eastern Afghanistan, according to provincial governor Mohammad Halim Fidai. NATO said that after insurgents attacked a patrol with a homemade bomb, the troops stopped to investigate the explosion and clear any other bombs in the area but then were fired on by an unknown number of insurgents. During the fighting, the coalition said two Afghans fell off a motorcycle and were taken away by villagers so their conditions could not be verified. Also in the east, US special forces, NATO troops and the Afghan army killed more than 10 insurgents and recovered four weapons caches during a four-day operation that ended on Wednesday in Dara-i-Pech district of Kunar province, NATO said on Saturday.
