Imposed Secularism on Afghanistan
The western democratic system being imposed on Afghans is rooted in secularism, and therefore it is in conflict with the Islamic culture of Afghans.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is fighting for the "independence of Afghanistan, establishment of a Islamic government, and reconstruction and development of Afghanistan by all Afghans."
When the United States first invaded Afghanistan in 2001, it was on grounds of combating terrorism. But how is that cause being advanced over 8 years later through occupation and imposition of a secular government?
How is democracy being advanced in Afghanistan by imposing secularism on the people of Afghanistan? A people's democracy is not about foreign imposition of a political system. Could there be other reasons as to why the United States is in Afghanistan, such as establishing a strategic foothold in the region?
