Kabul (BNA) August 19 the independence anniversary day of Afghanistan is a turning point in history of the country that transforms freedom and living free to the upcoming generations, we honor and celebrate this historical day as it deserved.
August 19, is not an ordinary incident, as it has mentioned earlier a poor nation but armed with strong faith and high sense of patriotism firmly stood against British colonialists and brought it to its knees and forced   it to formally acknowledge to political independence of Afghanistan that pave the way for other freedom loving countries in the region to rose against British colonialism and fight for their independence and rescue their selves from the yoke of British tyrannical rule.  Afghanistan was the first country where the British tasted the bitter taste of defeat and then gradually experienced defeat by other countries that were suffering under British rule.
In addition, August 19 is teaching the lesson of freedom and liberalism for the upcoming generations how to stand and resist against foreign conspiracies and protect their counties.
The Afghan people under leadership of King Amanullah obtaining their political independence provided the situation to establish their own constitution. For the first not only the boys but also the girls succeeded to attend schools.
Discriminations against religious minorities ended and civil activities started and widely spread in short period of time and publication of periodical and leaflets strongly started for further enlighten the minds and souls of people.
Our ancestors 98 years ago heroically ender colonialism and their country Afghanistan emerged as a free country among the world counties, however, presently challenges of new colonialism are threatening the independence of the country. Therefore, learning from heritance of ancestors we should fight wisely and untidily fight against, the threat and conspiracies of the enemies and rescue our country, as our forefathers did against old colonialists.
