Kabul (BNA) 11 years ago, the enemies of culture and education of Afghanistan targeted and collapsed the two huge civilization and cultural masterpieces of Buddha and committed another crime against the international ancient relics in central province of Bamyan. 
The action, if was asses to have amenity aspect against the culture and history of the country on one side, it can also be evaluated as a following up of practicing political conspiracy on the other.  
Following the old and ruined policies, the then invaders once gain committed enmity against the human history and destroyed the twine ancient Buddha statues, in order to realize the desires of the aliens. 
Most analysts believe the action to destroy the statues with over 1.600 years background had had political aspect rather than religious as the Taliban had committed such human crime at the end of their domination over Afghanistan. 
They practiced what they had received by their political lords, because according to the so-called leadership council of the Taliban, the Ulema council of the Taliban regime and its supreme court received an order from Mullah Omar in February, 6, 2001 to destroy all what they had called non-Islamic objectives. 
Following the incident, the world community, the United Nations (UN) and UNESCO fully opposed against the action and asked the Taliban not to attempt what it had called it a crime, as the entire historical relics of Afghanistan were part of the world cultural civilization. 
But, despites the international reaction, the Taliban resorted to practice their leader’s order and fired to the ancient statues in March, 9, 2001, destroying Shamama and Salsal Buddha Statues with up to 1,600 years historical background and left only two grand ditches with 53 and 35 meter length at the hillside of Hindokosh mountain by the evening later on the day. 
This imprudence by the Taliban had been registered as a black remembrance of the regime in the pages of history, with only, to pay a big tribute to the order of the enemies of culture and history of the country. 
However, since the establishment of the interim administration, efforts are being made by the government and ministry of information and culture to repair the great statues, but they are still remained not repaired. 
The twin Buddha Statues and other historical monuments in central Bamyan province had been included into both the historical heritages of Afghanistan and the world and were enlisted by the ministry of information and culture to be merged into the UNESCO cultural relics, but they are expected to be repaired in cooperation with the world community and UNESCO.
