Forty-one years ago today on the 6th of Jaddi 1358 (Hijri Solar), the pre-eminent imperialist power of the twentieth century invaded Afghanistan in order to annex our homeland, impose upon our people a vile ideology and beliefs, and turn this proud people into perpetual slaves.
The Soviet Union utilized the entire might of its Red Army and domestic surrogates to this end, bombed and grated every inch of our beloved homeland with bullets, and martyred, orphaned, wounded, imprisoned and displaced our defenseless and persecuted people, yet they still failed to attain their objectives – and all praise belong to Allah.
The Mujahid nation of Afghanistan fought the Red basilisk of the twentieth century with sickles, axes, improvised hand bombs and rusty rifles, endured displacements and hardships, offered martyrs, suffered imprisonments and various other travails and tortures but they neither abandoned their homeland to the Red Army nor did they allow them to trample on their values.
This Mujahid nation with the divine help of its Lord Almighty (SwT), indomitable resolve and extraordinary sacrifices not only defeated the armies of communism but also relegated the Soviet Empire to the dustbin of history.
The defeat of the Soviet armies and humiliation of their domestic puppets imparts a lesson that no matter whom tries to murder the Afghan people under miscreant, terrorist or whatever name, they will ultimately fail in imposing upon them their beliefs and ideology.
Afghanistan is the home of valiant Muslims and this Mujahid nation was, is and will continue to be prepared to offer every sacrifice imaginable in defense of their religious and national values.
The Afghan nation has neither harmed anyone prior nor does it intend to do so in the future but freedom, peace, sovereignty and safeguarding values in their own land are both inviolable and a necessity. Anyone who tries to become an impediment in this path shall be resisted valiantly and (this nation) maintains a prodigious capacity and resolve for fighting for their independence, Allah willing.
