Kabul: Taliban has successfully entered Kabul city, people are trying to escape from their homeland in order to give a better future to the family. Deeply sadden by the present situation of Afghanistan, an Afghanistan born writer Khaled Hosseini said, “The people of Afghanistan do not deserve this”
He posted: “The American decision has been made. And the nightmare Afghans feared is unfolding before our eyes. We cannot abandon a people that have searched forty years for peace. Afghan women must not be made to languish again behind locked doors & pulled curtains. #PrayforAfghanistan.”
Khaled is known for writing New York Times bestsellers The Kite Runner, A Thousand Splendid Suns, and And the Mountains Echoed.
Born in Kabul, he moved to the US in 1980.
Khaled’s father was a diplomat in the Afghan Foreign Ministry and his mother taught Farsi and history at a high school in Kabul.
In 1976, the Foreign Ministry relocated the Hosseini family to Paris. They were ready to return to Kabul in 1980, but by then their homeland had witnessed a bloody communist coup and the invasion of the Soviet Army.
The Hosseinis sought and were granted political asylum in the United States, and in September 1980 moved to San Jose, California.
Malala Yousafzai,Pakistani Nobel laureate, also voiced her anguish and tweeted: “We watch in complete shock as Taliban takes control of Afghanistan. I am deeply worried about women, minorities and human rights advocates. Global, regional and local powers must call for an immediate ceasefire, provide urgent humanitarian aid and protect refugees and civilians.”
Situation in Afghanistan:
Amid a growing outrage over the USA abandoning Afghanistan and Pakistan supporting the group that enforces their own radical version of Islamic law Sharia, Taliban insurgents entered Kabul on Sunday at the end of clashes and weeks of violence in various parts of the nation.
