Taliban vs. American 'Liberation' in Afghanistan



1. Basic Rights

Taliban: 

- Safety and security within homes and outside.

Northern Alliance (terrorists funded by America):

- Enter homes at will and abduct and rape women and girls.  Absolutely no safety.

2. Right to Live

Taliban:

- Provided homes and shelter.

- Peace and security during their five years of rule.

- Gave the women the most fundamental right - the right to live and provided for them security for their families.

US and Britain:

- Bombed homes, villages, mosques and hospitals, leaving them not only homeless but also in dire need of medical aid.  

- War and destruction.  The US continues to provide ardent financial and military support to the Northern Alliance who are responsible for atrocities committed against the people of Afghanistan during their rule before the arrival of the Taliban   

- Indiscriminate bombing took thousands of lives of women and children.  There is no security as the Northern Alliance troops who are supported by the US and Britain are looting and abducting innocent civilians without hesitation.

3.  Honor

Taliban:

- - Protection of honor.  When the Taliban came to power, they asked the working women to temporarily stay home with pay, in order to protect them from rape and murder which was rampant in Afghanistan, at that time.  After the society was stabilized, the women were allowed to return to work.

Northern Alliance (terrorists funded by America):

- Abducted and raped women at every opportunity. 

4. Respect and Dignity

Taliban:

- It has been a long tradition for the women in Afghanistan to wear burqa and they continued to wear it during the Taliban rule.  The burqa also became a form of protection from lustful gazes and harassment.  However, the current situation with the Taliban gone, has only increased the distress of the women who fear for their honor and dignity.  "[The Northern Alliance] announced that women were free, but it is not freedom to throw off our veils. That is not the liberty we want. Right now the situation in Kabul is not good. It is not what we wanted.� --- Nafeesa, 17 (source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/hi/english/world/south_asia/newsid_1679000/1679337.stm)

Northern Alliance (terrorists funded by the US):

- The burqa became a shield for the Northern Alliance and prevented them from victimizing the women.  Therefore, upon their capture of the major cities in Afghanistan, according to eye-witnesses, the Northern Alliance troops forcefully made the women remove their veils and to some, they gave a choice to either remove their veils or be raped.   

5. Law, Order and Safety

Taliban:

- The Taliban brought law and order to a country in which chaos and oppression was prevalent.  With the implementation of shari`ah law and practice of hudood, crimes such as rape, murder and looting decreased drastically.  

- Safety on the streets and markets.  When the Taliban first began to clean the society, they had asked women not travel out of their homes without a mahram (a male companion), so that they may be protected and secure.  Later, as the law and order was established by the Taliban, women were given the permission to go out without a male companion.  They went to the markets alone and did not worry about any harassment, abductions or rape.

Northern Alliance (terrorists funded by the US):

- With the arrival of the Northern Alliance, the country has plunged into lawlessness and chaos.  Women are afraid to leave their homes as the Northern Alliance begin to repeat their past record of atrocities against innocent civilians while the U.S. and Britain continue to give them more military and financial support.  "Lindsey Davis, spokeswoman for the United Nation�s World Food Program, said the situation in the northern city � taken by Northern Alliance forces on Friday � was "volatile". "We have reports of looting, abductions of civilians from the city, and uncontrolled freelance gunmen," she told reporters, adding that "street battles are ongoing." (Arab News: )

- There is no safety whatsoever and women fear to leave their homes. Northern Alliance troops, in particularly the Uzbeks and the Tajiks, abduct women from markets and hand them over to the American soldiers.

6. Health Care

Taliban:

- Tried their utmost to establish health care facilities even though their economy was suffering due to the unjust sanctions imposed on Afghanistan by the United States.  

United States:

- Bombed many hospitals and made it difficult for aid agencies to provide medical aid to the injured civilians.   (PakNews:)

7. Family and Maintenance

Taliban: 

- Men had been primarily responsible for the maintenance of the family and to provide comfort and security.

- Stable family-life 

United States/ Northern Alliance:

- Many responsible men are being killed, leaving their women widows and helpless. (BBC: )
Independent News:  

- broken up many families due to bombing and killing, or forcing relatives to flee from their homes and loved ones.

8. Right to keep their children

Taliban:

Right to keep their children

United States:

Americans have engaged in forcibly taking away children from Muslim mothers. Gul Agha and his paedophilic army are well known for committing sodomy with small children.

9. Landmines

Taliban:

- The Taliban took immediate action in trying to get rid of the landmines that were left by the Soviets during the '79 war, injuring and claiming many innocent lives, especially those of small children. 

United States:

- In the present war, the U.S. has replaced the landmines with cluster bombs that have caused heavy injury to innocent civilians.  Moreover, the appearance of the cluster bombs and food packages dropped by the UN are so similar that many children have gotten injured while attempting to pick up the cluster bombs thinking that they are food packages. 

10. Drug Trade:

Taliban:

- Afghanistan used to be the largest producer of opium in the world.  The Taliban completely banned poppy cultivation.  "According to a recent report by the UN Drug Control Program, the decree brought raw opium production in Afghanistan to a virtual halt, dropping from 3,276 tons to only 185 tons in just one year." (Chicago Tribune:)

Northern Alliance (terrorists funded by the US):

- Poppy growth has returned as farmers begin to plant once again, give rise to the opium trade. (Chicago Tribune:)

11. Food and Relief:

 Taliban:

- Relief agencies distributed food and aid to the people because of the economic hardships suffered by the population of Afghanistan because of the sanctions that were cruelly imposed by the U.S.

United States:

- Since the beginning of the U.S.-led war on Afghanistan, the U.S. has bombed many relief convoys and destroyed many storage facilities.  "UN agencies have warned that 7.5 million people are dependent on aid for their survival through the coming winter. UNICEF has estimated that 100,000 children may die. The U.S. government has continued its protracted bombing campaign in the face of numerous concerted from private aid agencies and from the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right of Access to Food for a bombing halt so that supplies can be trucked in. Simultaneously, the noncombatant toll of the bombings continues to grow a bus in Kandahar, a hospital in Herat, numerous private homes, and more."

12. Environment

Taliban:

- Clean and healthy environment.

United States/ Northern Alliance:

- Polluted the environment by severe bombing and use of chemical weapons.
