What an Afghan Christian experiencing in Kabul Afghanistan has to share. These are the words of a Young Afghan Christian who is now a Christian.
We have asked him few questions and here are his answers:
 
A: It's not the matter of Abdul Rahman or someone else? It's the right of every human being to choose. Weather we want to call it conversion or change... it's the right of that very individual to choose and to choose thier faith. Yes, Abdul Rahman has the right, every right, to believe. That's the promise of Afghanistan to the world, isn't it?
Afghan Consitiution, Chapter One, Article Seven says: "The State shall observe Charter of the United Nations, International Treaties, International Conventions that Afghanistan is a part to, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights."
 
Universal Declaration of Human Rights: United Nations Article 18: "Everyone has the right to a freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes FREEDOM TO CHANGE HIS RELIGION OR BELIEF, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."
 
so, let's see who stands with his promise?
 
Answer to Question 2: No, I don't know about the number of Afghan Christians in and out of Afghanistan. It dosen't really matter to me. I don't see the numbers and digits. But I do know that GOD is working in this land. We have suffered a lot under the common belief practiced in our land. Do I think that all Christians in Afghanistan should be punished to death? No, I don't think so. I think the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of United Nations, Article 18 stand for even one individual. It can stand for Abdul Rahman as one believer in Christ and as a community of Afghan believers around the globe.
 
Answer to Question 3: Yeah, I do have internet facility and I do check on the websites. I think they are cool and it can be better.
 
Answer to Question 4: Afghan Church is in emerging stages. Sooner or later, it goes public (just like Abdul Rahman's case)
How: Violent Event, just like the history of the church.
When: SOON! It started way back, it's getting into the media now and you can't really stop it here. Persectution, top down the government - bottom up family.
If you give people the right to choose, then we can talk about the openness of people. For now - I don't know.
 
Answer to Question 5: I had question about the constitution from day one. It's not back and white. It conterdicts within itself.
In Afghan Constitution:
Chapter One, Article Two declares:
"Follower of other religions are free to exercise their faith and perform their religious rites within the limits of the provisions of law."
And what the Law based on? Sharia!
But just lines down the page it talks about Universal Declaration of Human Right:
Chapter One, Article Seven declares:
"The State shall observe Charter of the United Nations, International Treaties, International Conventions that Afghanistan is a part to, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights."
 
And what is UDHR?
Universal Declaration of Human Rights: United Nations Article 18: "Everyone has the right to a freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes FREEDOM TO CHANGE HIS RELIGION OR BELIEF, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance."
 
GO and figure out this now! Somebody has to slove a matter here?!
 
Bottom Line: It was questionable from day one.
 
Answer to Question 6: Yeah I do.
 
Answer to Question 7: I would rather read the GOOD News than Injil! (just kidding) Oh my, everyone should be allowed to read and hear the good news! Oh that these poeple who sufffered an enormouse pain - needs to hear the GOOD NEWS which brings healing and forgivness.
 
Hey, I do have some questions to ask?
  • Will donor nations require support of the UDHR for Afghans, as a condition for future funding?
  • Will the Afghan GOvernment offer its own citizens the same right and freedom recognized throughout the free world?
  • Afghans have fought hard for their freedom and now deserve a representative government that ensures tha same rights as other citizens of the International Community?
  • Will President Karzai stand up for the rights of all Afghan?
  • Will the UN demand rights for all Afghans?
  • After 25 years of conflict will Afghans finally be granted real freedom?
  • Will NATO forces speak to this form of security?
  • Pakistan (which Afghans claim to be the worst) honors religious freedom?
  • Will donor nations take stand for Afghan rights?
  • Will Afghans be treated the same way in their own country as they were in countries they fled to during the conflict?
  • After citizen of donor nations gave tax money to help rebuild Afghanistan, will they now demand freedom for Afghans?
  • If Afghanistan wants to join the community of nations it must abide by international norms?
