Independence Day; A Day Of Pride For Afghans

Saturday August 19, 2017
Kabul (BNA) On August 19, Afghans celebrate the 98th anniversary of gaining of their country’s independence from then Great Britain, which ruled India and Pakistan from 1858- 1947 and dominated Afghanistan’s foreign affairs from 1880- 1919. Although historians contest the exact course of events leading to Afghan independence – as well as the scale of sovereignty achieved in 1919 – the day resonates with all Afghans, regardless of their age, ethnic, religious, linguistic and even political backgrounds. King Amanullah Khan declared independence in 1919 and pursued an independent foreign policy free from the influence of the then Britain. King Amanullah Khan’s ten years of rule initiated a period of dramatic change in Afghanistan in both foreign and domestic politics. Starting in May 1919 when Afghanistan gained complete independence in the month-long third Anglo-Afghan War with Britain, King Amanullah Khan altered foreign policy in his new relations with external powers and transformed domestic politics with his social, political, and economic reforms.
Since that August 19 holds a special place for Afghans, where the country’s citizens and government, even that of the former rulers, celebrated the day with honor and pride. It is also utmost important to remember that Afghans came together to fight for independence with a vision of unity and prosperity. The day also reminds people of how the ancestors fought in unity and gained the honor that comes with the creation of a united, independent nation that holds a common meaning for every citizen, which is that all Afghans need to work together for prosperity of their country and once again prove that Afghans are united as one nation that cannot be divided. The significance of Independence Day in Afghanistan also lies in the fact that the day embodies the rich historical and cultural aspect of the country.  The Afghan people have been widely known for their love of poetry and classic art and painting well displayed through many of its monumental landmarks and heritage sites. During the two decades of Civil War and extremist terrorism the wide infrastructure of the country has suffered a lot, hence the present government is trying to develop that areas system which is definitely going to bring a rapid phase of development in the country.
The historic land of Afghanistan has been the melting pot of Eastern and Western cultures. Being a war-torn country, the independence day of Afghanistan has lost much of its sheer and elegance in the due course of time. Afghanistan has long being inflicted with terrorist attacks, insurgency and even prone to natural calamities which has terribly affected the social and cultural growth of the country. The Independence Day carries a long history and celebrating it is all about acknowledging and owning that very history. Celebration of the independence reflects oppression, the horror, and the aggression against which the Afghans struggled. The day also remembers the country’s ancestors who died while fighting for independence; it evokes memories of men and women who never returned home.
Considering the course of history, Afghanistan has defeated colonialism, communism and nowadays fighting international terrorism. The country is a multi-national land, where several beliefs, mentalities and mindsets are cherished and individuals live a peaceful life with the spirit of brotherhood. In this society, living a quiet social life will be impossible without national integrity. Therefore, considering the spirit of the Independence Day which was unitedly achieved by Afghans, the struggles should be multiplied to strengthen national unity and all ethnic groups need to support it as a principle. They have to take effective step with bona fide intention for solidarity, unity and coexistence, as the terrorism continues to kill innocent Afghans across the country.

Kabul (BNA) As the symbol of our history and national values, Asad 28th Afghanistan’s Independence Day is celebrated every year countrywide.  A number of experts and citizens told while appreciating the brave men who got the country’s independence are stressing on protection of national and historical values.  Mohammad Karim Aminzoy, scientific chairman of legal stage of Kabul University said, as you know, the independence was the national identity of a country. Since long, Asad 28th has been celebrated every year all-over the country through glorious ceremonies, so the future generations realize the independence has not been easily obtained, he further said. Aminzoy added, unfortunately due to security and political problems in recent years, this day was not properly marked. He went on to say, we should make effort to preserve these historical values. Likewise, education and higher education institutes are responsible to transfer historical honors from one generation to another, he continued.
He added, in other countries, people respect to their values, for example, India as a regional country has always commemorated its accepted traditions and bravery of its great leaders. Ahmad Sayedi a political analyst on Afghanistan and regional affairs said, Ghazi Amanullah Khan took a steadfast step and gained our political independence. The brave Afghans shed their blood in this path, and we appreciate them, he added. He added, national identity of a nation is in preservation of its historical values and independence. I hope one day would arrive to have political, economic, security and cultural independence. Commemoration of Independence Day and its glories celebration is indeed commemoration and cerebration of heroism and braveries of our historical men. Haroon Mir another political analyst said Asad 28th was an important and decisive day in the history of Afghanistan. But political, security, economic situation in the last four decades have created great challenges to our country. He added, during king Amanullah a constitutional movement appeared that wanted to lead Afghanistan from darkness to progress. But after the communist coup d’état the development process was stopped. Today politically we are independent but economically dependent to the international aids. So we should give a new definition of freedom to young generations. Real independence is in economic self-sufficiency.
