The 103rd anniversary of Afghanistan Independence Day is Friday August 19 or 28 Asad.
According to political experts, Afghanistan has not experienced political stability over the past century and the majority of its regimes have been established through coups and wars.
They claim that the current situation in Afghanistan is due to the use of force to impose authoritarian governments.
“Over the past 103 years, even though we have celebrated our independence, there have been periods in Afghan history when Afghan leaders and decision makers have not had full independence, but the future can be good. “said Tariq Farhadi, political analyst. .
“Afghanistan is a country that has seen changes most of the time, and those changes have mainly harmed the people,” said Janat Fahim, another political analyst.
King Amanullah Khan, who led Afghanistan to independence from the United Kingdom in 1919, was the third son of his father, Amir Habibullah Khan, who was also the Emir of Afghanistan.
He was born on June 1, 1892 in the Paghman district of Kabul. He was the sovereign head of the Kingdom of Afghanistan from 1919 to 1929.
He was the first Afghan leader to give women freedom, allow them to go to school and try to modernize Afghanistan before a popular uprising forced him to flee to British-controlled India. in 1929.
In previous years, this day has been celebrated by governments and the public, but this year’s celebration has been muted.
Jamshid Behzadpoor, a resident of Kabul, said: “For the past few years, people have been gathering in the streets with fervor and holding our tricolor national flag in their hands and celebrating Independence Day, but this year, as we see, it was not celebrated. “
“Foreigners have interfered in the internal affairs of Afghanistan significantly throughout its modern history, and on the other hand, Afghanistan unfortunately lacks a political leader who works for the stability of the country,” said Shasawar Sangarwal, a historian.
On August 15, 2021, the current government of Afghanistan came to power; however, no country has yet recognized it.
