  1. In 1920, King Amanulla had initiated many reform to modernize the Afganistan. Women of Afganistan were very forward with compare to other countries of South Asia at that time. Unfortunately, Taliban pushed back Afganistan into the medieval era. Today Afganistan is considered as the most dangerous country to travel.

  2. Once Afghanistan was the most progressive nation of South Asia. Modernization of Afghanistan begun in 1920 by King Amanulla. From 1920-1980 was the golden era of Afghanistan. Russian support to overthrew Jahir Shah in a coup led by Dawood and later US support Taliban backed by Pakistan ruin this beautiful country. Unfortunately, US backing to Islamic fundamentalists in the name of to stop Russian influence in the past was the most unfortunate policy mistakes adopted by US. And, US is paying now for this mistake.

  3. In Fact a real sad video. A country divided by the war of two other nations and then got under control of a radical, political Islam. I'm afraid to see, that we might get the same situation in the midst of Europe due to increase of Islamic tendencies and terrorism. Anyone who denies and says that this won't happen should take a deeper look to the pictures made in Afghanistan and Iran in the 60s and 70s. Formerly two modern countries under the control of a invasive state religion.

  4. women were forced to wear burqa. it is a symbol of oppression. now in North America we have women wanting to wearing the burqa. sad

  5. A non-Afghan Non-Muslim narrator explaining about the plight of Afghan woman? That's like having a foot problem and going to a dentist instead of a pediatrician smh

  6. Afghanistan, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia etc used to be beautiful places to live and visit the only reason why so my death is because none of these places didn't put up a fight.

  7. Afghans are tough as nails theirs a reason we survived for thousands of years, we'll make a come back no doubt

  8. America created Taliban, infact usa is the real father of all kind of terrorism, bombing innocenting Afghans, Iraqis, Supporting Israeli army to kill Palestinians, usa is killing innocent people in Africa, American civil war, discrimination against black people.

  9. If this video isn't proof under constitutional laws men and women are equal and under sharia law the only ones who have rights are men then nothing is.

  10. Humm, Sad that our Shadow government controlled media in the US would never show us this side of a beautiful Afghanistan. Especially when they armed and trained the Taliban to defeat the Soviet union's expansion into Afghanistan in the 90's…

  11. Afghanistan's Kemal Atatürk!
    DREAMERS!
    This must tell even you Blockheads, something about the ISLAM that your governments are forcing on all WESTERN countries!
    Australia could re-adopt the WHITES ONLY doctrine of the 60's and cleanse it's shores, in order that WE have a HOMELAND and are not totally destroyed?

  18. The Zion screwed the happiness of all women .All Islamic countries were beautiful ,but the Wahhabis made hell of all.

  19. Donot blame the Talibans or the Isis, bcz they are not doing anything their own. Rather they follow the original or the extrem or the true or the Quranic & Shariia Style of real Islam… Only Islam is to be blamed…

  20. Well, we see in Afganistan today the result of US interference in establishing the Muhajadin there which morphed into Al Qaeda and the other Wahabi Jihadis. Same cause and result in Libya, Iraq, Yemen and currently at work for the same result in Syria and Iran helped now by UK, France, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Israel and Turkey. Shame on all of them.

  27. A free, liberal, secular and democratic nation could never turn into a fundamentalist state just because of letting Islamism take hold you intolerant shitlord!!

    If you ever needed to know why Islam is a threat to civilized people…Look upon this, turned into a barbaric patriarchal hellhole, some of those women might still remember what life was like before the Taliban came to "free" them. And stupid cunts in the west go around wearing hijabs to demonstrate "tolerance"
