Afghan sociologist: Taliban has pushed Afghanistan to a religious divide

Afghan sociologist Mohammad Amin Reshadat stated at the university of religions and denominations

“Religions and races are faced with a gap and faiths` co-existences have been damaged in Afghanistan ruled by Taliban. Racial, lingual and religious radical and intensive gaps are being made.” said Mohammad Amin Reshadat as an Afghan sociologist while addressing a meeting at the university of religions and denominations

Analyzing Afghanistan`s pre-and-pro Taliban situations, Dr. Reshadat briefing the meeting said a sociologically evaluation of Afghanistan`s situations over the past century shows such a big all-aspects descend that all achievements gained in the areas of women`s rights and public health cares are endangered: This can be demonstrated by a publication in 1303 SH, almost a century ago, in the field of women titled “Ershad-u-Neswan” and the first female-hospital and public health services center built at those time. Educational institutions, but now, are being closed for women, something signaling a big cultural descend there in Afghanistan.

“Religions News Agency (REDNA)” reported the meeting attended by Dr. Reshadat as an Afghan sociologist university lecturer and a group of other Afghan university student and cultural activists was hosted by Hojjat-ul-Islam Wal-Muslemin Dr. Mostata Jafar-e Tyyari, the university of religions and denominations deputy.

The meeting was tasked with sociologically analyzing Afghanistan`s cultural, social and political situations before-and-after Taliban`s Islamic Emirate.

Afghanistan, a cultural paralysis

“Cultural realm functions as the pulse of the society so access to libraries, bookstores, receiving university educations, free media, schools and coffee shops are the absolute rights of each modern nation. But, with educational institutions closed for women, media destroyed and cultural services sharply declined, Afghanistan can be best described as a cultural paralysis.” Dr. Reshadat said

Over a century, Afghanistan has experienced several political systems and governments, but all have failed to meet the needs of Afghan nation. Despite being ruled by seven political systems of “Constitutional, monarchy, republic, democracy, liberal and currently Islamic Emirate, Afghanistan still stained by lack of cultural sustainability led to fragile governments.

Racial, lingual and religious radical and intensive gaps in Afghanistan

Dr. Reshadat added Afghanistan has failed in forming a united nation, defining a single national identity and it is affected by radical racial, lingual and religious gaps. All the previous culture-making infrastructures are destroyed now. Afghanistan` issues and problems originated from poverty of culture. Taliban after retaking Afghanistan so badly redefined women`s status and identity that it is opposing the Afghanistan unique civilization and culture.

He, at the end, called for fixing cultural damages in Afghanistan as well as increasing public knowledge level.
