The World is on Support of Peace and Democraatic Government in Afghanistan

The country is in an important period of its history today. The government and all political elites must realize the need for peace - press their hands for making a new prospered Afghanistan where the right of each Afghan is respected, and create a situation that everybody attributes in the economy and society. Generate an atmosphere that people regard and trust each other as well their leaders and government.However, recent historical events indicate that the world community is starting to learn that peace can be achieved more effectively by mass participation of all the stakeholders and  by peaceful manners and not through negative, destructive and hateful behaviors.Hence, it draws our attention to know, what is going to happen in the coming conference?  But what we know is reconciliation is still one of the top issues in Afghanistan. Peace and democratic government are the two important goals following through the world community and the government of Afghanistan.  We should not forget that, the hope of peace coming is a healing to many broken hearts, forgotten and marginalized people across the country.  Though after passing one year of the “Agreement for Bringing Peace to Afghanistan” different plans, discussions, and interpretations heard from the peace relevant corners: The Afghan government, the neighboring countries including the US and the Taliban.  The fact is there are some serious new challenges created on the road to peace. 
First challenge is the peace stakeholders of Afghanistan has different point of views.  At consequence, the citizens became upset and non-supportive.  Afghanistan is one of the countries where people mistrust each other – social trust and political trust is very low. Taliban must stop shamefulness behavior, look back to the years of 2001 learn some lessons and do not repeat the past mistakes again. In the other hand, unfortunately, the surrounding governments still look at Afghanistan as their goods market; they do not want a developed and self-governed Afghanistan in the future as well. Surely, it acts as a factor of lasting long fighting and violence in the country too. Working together as a team at home, at work and in playing makes life much more fulfilling, enjoyable and harmonious.  Unity and team working is very valuable lesson that human being learned first and then emphasized to be followed in making progress and developments. In addition, the history of Afghanistan was characterized by internal conflicts, quarrels, disputes, aggressions and wars among its population. The impact and consequences of these conflicts and wars were so many and were mostly negative. If the  world community insist on temporary administration, and Taliban continuous like this behavior, it indicates that the next phase of the bloodiest days are waiting for our country.Second challenge is the internal factor, which is existing of careless leaders and it is one of the source of disagreement in Afghanistan. True leadership is a crucial tip in government functioning, and its hatred leads to distrust and distrust causes disunity. Tolerance allows people of different backgrounds, religions and races to work and live together, and share their strengths. Nevertheless, because of intolerance, Afghanistan is still struggling on how to end the war and brother killing. Furthermore, where there is discrimination, there cannot be peace. Intolerance leads to infighting, violence and instability as different groups resort to force and aggression against each other like the Taliban. Peace can only come when people become free from hatred and are willing to understand each other’s differences. Discrimination makes miserable lives for not just those discriminated against, but everyone in the society. Being able to accept one another’s differences can have positive effect on one’s wellbeing. Being tolerant removes one’s self-imposed barriers and allows one to think more broadly and enjoy greater inner peace. If, in a nation, instead of acceptance there is discrimination, that nation cannot flourish alike Afghans.The last idea is no true progress can ever be achieved until, in a society, mutual respect and empathy replace antagonism and bigotry. There are many ways to promote peace in Afghanistan but perhaps the best way is to promote it within ourselves.  Helping others also has the direct effect of increasing our personal peace and well-being, but this is merely one of the many bonuses that come from sharing our kindness with our fellow human beings. The question of real, lasting world peace concerns human beings, so basic human feelings are also at its roots. Through inner peace, genuine world peace can be achieved. In this the importance of individual responsibility is quite clear; an atmosphere of peace must first be created within ourselves, then gradually expanded to include our families, our communities, and ultimately the whole planet. No doughty that the tie that binds almost every human being on the planet. As the conclusion, the country is in an important period of its history today. The government and all political elites must realize the need for peace - press their hands for making a new prospered Afghanistan where the right of each Afghan is respected, and create a situation that everybody attributes in the economy and society. On the other hand, people often wonder how we will someday change and put an end to war and hatred. For enlightened individuals that reality already exists. They have already found peace on earth. As the last sentence, peace is not merely the absence of war and hatred but also the presence of cooperation, compassion and worldwide justice.
