It is one of those 'ifs' of history. If Hitler had not invaded Ruasia . . . . .
If INSTEAD OF Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru WE HAD Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose . . . . . .
Similarly, if Afghanistan had remained Buddhist, many feel, she would have been progressive, peaceful and prosperous like Switzerland today or even like Taiwan.
But sadly, ISLAM caught her by the neck and pushed her down into dirt, dust and turmoil.
Today, year 2001, Afghanistan is devastated and ruined like no other land on earth.
Alas, she will not turn back to her old spiritual roots. There is NO way back to sanity or civilisation for any ISLAMIC republic on earth.
Could Afghanistan prove the opposite?
