Ask an Afghanistan expert

The Topical Talk Student Hub gives you a chance to ask questions of experts about each Project. This time, we are speaking to experts on Afghanistan.

We're looking for fantastic questions which have been asked specifically to one of our experts, based on what they've achieved or researched.

We then pick 5 questions for each expert and publish their answers for you to see (see an example here!).

WE HAVE ALREADY SENT QUESTIONS TO NAVEED NOORMAL, SURAYA PAKZAD CHRIS SANDS AND MARY LAWLOR. KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE STUDENT HUB FOR THEIR ANSWERS!



Expert: A representative from Unicef

According to its website, UNICEF works to promote and protect the rights of children and women in Afghanistan. With over 65 years of service, they are one of the longest-serving international organizations in the country. It works to promote education, health, child protection, nutrition, disease eradication and clean water and hygiene. We are lucky to have someone from Unicef ready to answer your questions about their work in Afghanistan - so what would you ask? You might want to ask about the impact of the conflict and current situation in Afghanistan on its people, including refugees?

    Hello there,
    Chris Sands, you are a journalist and I really respect you for publishing right news as its really important to make people aware of the right news not a fake one cause we believe that the journalists will at least publish the correct one. So, In your 9 years experience, each and every time you had to give reports and news through writings-photographs on various issues so, "As a journalist did you face any pressure from anywhere while publishing any news that can be a striking one for the people of your country along with the whole world and if yes did you publish that news or not?"
    About the recent situation_ 'As a journalist what do you think that how should Afghan react on protecting their rights as their president left them instead of fighting with them ? and why did he leave and is the reason only about the threat from the military troops or something else, what do you think ?"

    "An engaging read with new discoveries about Afghanistan's tortured past, which changed the course of history. This is history at its best, with compelling stories told and, at times, chilling detail." - Les Doucier, Senior International Correspondent and Chief Presenter for BBC World News Television and BBC Radio World Service The question arises: Why did you call the book Night Letters?

    When the cost of lives lost, property damage, and lost production of products and services are added together, the total cost of the 9/11 attack exceeds $100 billion. The price tag surpasses $2 trillion when you factor in the loss of stock market worth, which the market estimates as a result of decreased corporate profits and greater discount rates for economic instability. That is a $2 trillion loss for the United States. Then US declares war on Taliban.

    Then I ask, How did the attacks on the twin towers and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, result in a 20-year state-building effort in Afghanistan that cost more than $2 trillion and lost the lives of 2,448 US soldiers, 1,144 NATO allies, 66,000 Afghan military and police personnel, and 444 aid workers? Why did a military presence remain under four US presidents? Only to witness the Taliban's humiliating return? Or was there a higher goal that would be more beneficial to USA?

    Perhaps, Mr. Chris Sanders, I have overcome a lot of troubles and difficulties at this very time to conduct this interview with you. Let me first congratulate you on obtaining the Foreign Press Award!! Thank you, and I appreciate the difficulties you faced in order to meet me, and I welcome you to my country, Afghanistan.. Let's start our conversation, Mr. Chris, with a question for you. Do you think that there is any cause for concern about the press in Afghanistan?? Yes, of course, I express my deep concern, especially that the experience of the Taliban movement with the press did not lead to reassurance, so we must work hard with the free press and follow a solid approach to it to raise a little of that concern that dominates the Afghan press, not only from me but from international and international bodies as well.. What do you think the Taliban did to Afghan writers and journalists, Mr. Chris??? We cannot limit what it did, but it restricted the media and prohibited watching television, cinema and all forms of entertainment that it considers immoral and will make its press under the shadow of Islamic law to limit it to its topics and goals. Is this the free press that it calls for?? I don't think so, my dear. My next question is, are there institutions that will stand by the Afghan press and support it in your personal belief??? Yes, there are many who call for a free press in Afghanistan, such as UNESCO, which called for standing next to that press because it stood again in the press arenas like other countries... Sir, what is it? The main step in the advancement of the Afghan press again? Benefiting from reliable information and sharing it in a framework of public and open debate through a free and independent media. Here I would like to stress that it is crucial for Afghans to achieve the peaceful future they deserve... What is your advice to the Afghan press at this difficult time??? Disclosure of what is on his mind at this stage is a must for journalistic courage and freedom, especially in this critical stage, and to give security and safety to the press in Afghanistan.. Do you have a vision of the direction of the success of the press in Afghanistan in the presence of the Taliban movement?? I think the Taliban will try and try, but it will not succeed in This is because its policy is tainted by many mistakes, restrictions and authoritarianism that will not help it succeed in this field... After this question I need another question Do you think the practice of journalism in Afghanistan has become more secure??? No, the press is subjected to a lot of repression, killing and intimidation, so no one can claim in a way that carries even a little credibility that Afghanistan is safe.. What do you think, Mr. Chris, of Afghan journalists and writers??? I think they are the most courageous because they work in the most difficult conditions and face exciting difficulties, threats and violence just for doing their job. So, salute to the Afghan journalist. Finally, what are your professional aspirations for the Afghan press?? I have many wishes for it, which is to investigate accuracy in disseminating its information, enhancing its capabilities, and verifying the accuracy of the information it receives, thinking about the popular base of the people, that their first and last concern is the people and their concerns, and the second is the Afghan state, and work with what human rights organizations recommend and stand with them and support them Therefore, I think that our press, if it finds a little support and support, will enjoy a lot of strong press activity at the local and international levels, but everyone is fighting us. We will not be able to find a gap of light to get out of this dark cave except through journalistic resistance, self-realization and the exercise of rights.. Thank you Mr. Chris for this wonderful interview

    Hello Chris Sands. I have a question for you.

    20 years of Taliban-USA war resulted in 2.6 million afghan refugees. These refugees went to several countries such as Pakistan, Iran, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Tajikistan etc. Now let's move serially...


    Pakistan and Iran have both stated that they are unable to handle any additional flood of Afghan refugees. Any refugees who arrive will have to stay in camps near the border until they can return to Afghanistan, according to the officials of both countries.

    Then we have Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan has stated that it will assist in the movement of Afghans to third countries, but that it will only host refugees on a temporary basis.

    Later on, we have Turkey. Turkey's government has urged European countries to shoulder responsibility for any further migrant problem, claiming that Turkey will not serve as "Europe's migrant storage unit." To deter illicit entry, the country has accelerated construction of a border wall with Iran.

    And just like that, most of the countries having afghan refugees are showing no interest to take complete responsibility for them.

    SO MY QUESTION TO YOU SIR IS,

    WHO IS SUPPOSED TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR THOSE AFGHAN REFUGEES?
    US? TALIBANS? OR THE INDIVIDUAL COUNTRIES?

    We all know that Al Qaeda attacked Twin Tower and killed lots of people. This is known as 9/11. America told the then Taliban government to hand over Osama bin Laden to America and stop supporting Al Qaeda. But they didn't, rather they helped Al Qaeda. So, USA sent troops to save their citizens (in the opinion or view of America). The American troops fought there for 20 years and spent billion billion dollars. But the result is that they could only able to kill Bin Laden in Pakistan not in Afghanistan. Without it they have no success. Their main purpose was to uproot the roots of Al Qaeda. But they couldn't. Al Qaeda is still running. And they wanted to establish peace and democracy there. But now we can see that the result is"0" and the people of Afghanistan is in very bad situation specially children and women. So, the result is the failure of America and crisis of basic rights of human in Afghanistan. So, my first question is" How could America think that they can establish peace and democracy in Afghanistan?? Wasn't it their mistake to think that America have power and they can do anything??
    In that time, Afghanistan was a independent country though the government was formed by Taliban. So, my second question " Who or What gave them the power to send troops in Afghanistan in the name of saving their citizens from Al Qaeda and snoop about the internal policies of a country and destroy the country??
    During the long war, the American soldiers and officers did lots of war crimes. They applied extra force while arresting the people. They tortured the detainees very brutally. Lots of persons were not found after being arrested by American army. They often killed innocent general people. For example to arrest a terrorist leader they killed a couple and six children. There are so many sorrowful incidents like this. The government force of Afghanistan and Australian soldiers were with them. What the Australian soldiers did are a great shame for the mankind. There are strong evidences of war crimes of them. Some organisations raise their voice about this. So, my third question is" Why ICC is not taking any action against them??

      Hi assertive_leaves,

      I've given you a star for your comment because you have clearly started to build understanding around this topic through research.

      It seems like you have already made up your mind about about this topic, you've focused on (valid) examples of failures from America. I challenge you to be open-minded and listen to all perspectives during this project. You may still draw the same conclusions, but it's always worthwhile to consider different points of view.

        Thanks. Yes, I am a very open minded person. Our country is a open minded country. However, I come to a conclusion that both the Taliban and America and Al Qaeda have faults. Al Qaeda should stop attacking innocent people in the name of a religion which is totally prohibited in that religion and who will do it he will not be counted as the believer of that particular religion. So, they did wrong things. Taliban they are very extremist. They should not be extremist and give the women their rights. And America and others they wanted to do good deeds but they couldn't. As a result of the mistakes of all of them, Afghanistan is in bad situation. I think that the situation can be changed if Al Qaeda and Taliban change their attitude and if Taliban establish democracy. America can extend their hands to them. And thus peace can be established and humanity will win. Again, thank you very much.

    Neither the Taliban nor other Afghans took part in the 9/11 attacks, but the Taliban regime provided a haven for al Qaeda and its leader, the Saudi-born Osama bin Laden. With the Taliban's refusal to surrender Osama bin Laden and the closure of terrorist training camps, the United States launches airstrikes against Al-Qaeda and Taliban targets in Afghanistan with the support of allies. The US army was sent to Afghanistan for defeating the Taliban militarily and rebuilding the core institutions of the Afghan state. More troops were sent in 2009 to accelerate the strategy.

    In a nutshell, Afghanistan had an army alongside the US military to fight the Taliban. But my question to Chris Sands is, "WHY COULDN’T THE AFGHAN FORCES BETTER RESIST THE TALIBAN DESPITE ALL THE US’ TRAINING AND ASSISTANCE?"

    20 years of war and billions of dollars is used behind the war and the resultant is 0 causing millions of refugees move to several countries and the matter of sorrow many a nations are not willing to take the responsibility of those refugees.
    My question to you sir.
    "Whose fault was it behind making so many beautiful lives to refugees??.
    Is it the Americans who showed the people a dream but became a successful failure or is it the taliban government who were not powerful enough to hold their rule and make their people understand?????

    To manage such a terrorist organization, ie. Al Qaeda, it costs a lot of money. But where does this money come from? Multiple investigations have resulted in the fact that Al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden were receiving money from multiple sources. It should be noted that bin Laden did not have a significant wealth to spend on al Qaeda. Rather, al-Qaeda earned a total of thirty million doller every year by financial supports from various Islamic charities. There is no strong evidence that al Qaeda is dependent on the drug trade or that is sponsored by foreign governments. But the US is rumored to have once been an important source of al Qaeda's funding, and some of the money raised in the US still funds al Qaeda and its affiliates making their way easier.
    So I'd like to ask Chris Sands, "Was the US really an important source of funding for al-Qaeda?"

    so after reading what tom wrote about you and what I searched . my question for you is "Do you think that situation in countries you have been in while these events happened is the same in light of dealing with them?"
    what I meant to say is that Afghanistan has an extremist group while Iraq and occupied Palestine are different they don't have these groups.

    "Over the last few years, we have lost many journalists to bombings and targeted killings, and this is tragic and scary. It’s disappointing for me and anyone trying to grow their experience as a reporter. But I still want to continue. By choosing to pursue journalism, I already accepted the barriers and difficulties of working in this field in this country." This is what Bushra Seddique said about Journalism in Afghanistan.

    Hi Chris Sands. Right off the bat I like you for the works that you have conducted for Afghanistan.

    From many books and Internet we get to realize that, nations like Pakistan and Iran have both expressed that they can't deal with any extra surge of Afghan exiles. Any displaced people who show up should remain in camps close to the boundary until they can get back to Afghanistan, as indicated by the authorities of the two nations.

    Later on, we have Turkey. Turkey's administration has asked European nations to bear liability regarding any further transient issue, asserting that Turkey won't fill in as "Europe's traveler stockpiling unit." To stop illegal section, the nation has sped up development of a boundary divider with Iran.And very much like that, the vast majority of the nations having afghan exiles are showing no interest to assume total liability for them.

    Yet, it involves worry that, how long will those nations would tale be able to mind of those displaced people? Since they likewise have their inward isssues, their kin, they additionally need to tackle those issues. So inevitably those nations will likewise deny to co work.

    So my request to you sir, assuming they stops, what will befall the existences of such Afghan displaced people and will they have a decent life like us?

    In Saigon, in April 1975, a flock of desperate Vietnamese climbed the walls of the US Embassy in hopes of finding a helicopter to secure them. In
    In Kabul, in August 2021, a similarly desperate Afghan climbed the wall of Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul and filled the runway.
    The similarities in the last few hours of the two wars, which were stretched over the years, caused enormous costs and claimed many lives, struck many observers. so my question for you sir is "Do you think that Afghanistan will have the same future as Vietnam?"

    Hi Chris Sands. I have an inquiry for you.

    20 years of Taliban-USA war brought about 2.6 million afghan displaced people. These outcasts went to a few nations, for example, Pakistan, Iran, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Tajikistan and so on Presently how about we move sequentially...

    Pakistan and Iran have both expressed that they can't deal with any extra surge of Afghan outcasts. Any evacuees who show up should remain in camps close to the line until they can get back to Afghanistan, as per the authorities of the two nations.

    Then, at that point, we have Uzbekistan. Uzbekistan has expressed that it will aid the development of Afghans to third nations, yet that it will just host outcasts on a transitory premise.

    Later on, we have Turkey. Turkey's administration has encouraged European nations to bear liability regarding any further traveler issue, guaranteeing that Turkey won't fill in as "Europe's transient stockpiling unit." To prevent illegal passage, the nation has sped up development of a line divider with Iran.

    What's more, very much like that, the greater part of the nations having afghan evacuees are showing no interest to assume total liability for them.

    SO MY SIMPLE QUESTION TO YOU SIR IS,

    Who is Supposed To Take Responsibility For Those Afghan Refugees?

    US? TALIBANS? Or on the other hand THE INDIVIDUAL COUNTRIES?

    We as a whole realize that Al Qaeda assaulted Twin Tower and killed heaps of individuals. This is known as 9/11. America advised the then Taliban government to surrender Osama receptacle Laden to America and quit supporting Al Qaeda. Be that as it may, they didn't, rather they helped Al Qaeda. Along these lines, USA sent soldiers to save their residents (in the assessment or perspective on America). The American soldiers battled there for a considerable length of time and burned through billion dollars. Yet, the outcome is that they could simply ready to kill Bin Laden in Pakistan not in Afghanistan. Without it they have no achievement. Their fundamental design was to evacuate the underlying foundations of Al Qaeda. Yet, they proved unable. Al Qaeda is as yet running. What's more, they needed to build up harmony and majority rule government there. In any case, presently we can see that the outcome is"0" and individuals of Afghanistan is in exceptionally awful circumstance uniquely kids and ladies. Along these lines, the outcome is the disappointment of America and emergency of essential privileges of human in Afghanistan. Anyway, my first inquiry is" How could America feel that they can build up harmony and majority rule government in Afghanistan?? Wasn't it their error to believe that America have force and they can isn't that right??

    In that time, Afghanistan was a free nation however the public authority was framed by Taliban. All in all, my subsequent inquiry " Who for sure enabled them to send troops in Afghanistan for the sake of saving their residents from Al Qaeda and sneak around the inner approaches of a nation and obliterate the country??

    My question to the expert: Marie Lawlor When I read about you, I liked it very much. I was amazed that you are a member of the United Nations and you stand up for human rights in Afghanistan. She created a foundation in 2001. Since this year, she has been working for human rights. You have experience in this field. Human, weren't you threatened? Because of what you're posting or what you're doing, I'd really like to get to know you. You've blown my mind with your work

    Howdy Chris Sands. First thing I like you for the works that you have directed for Afghanistan.

    From many books and Internet we get to understand that, countries like Pakistan and Iran have both communicated that they can't manage any additional flood of Afghan exiles. Any dislodged individuals who make an appearance ought to stay in camps near the limit until they can return to Afghanistan, as demonstrated by the specialists of the two countries.

    Later on, we have Turkey. Turkey's organization has requested that European countries bear responsibility in regards to any further transient issue, declaring that Turkey will not fill in as "Europe's explorer accumulating unit." To stop unlawful area, the country has accelerated improvement of a limit divider with Iran.And especially like that, by far most of the countries having afghan exiles are showing no interest to accept absolute risk for them.

    However, it includes stress that, how long can those countries would story mind of those dislodged individuals? Since they moreover have their internal isssues, their family, they furthermore need to handle those issues. So unavoidably those countries will in like manner deny to cooperate.

    So my solicitation to you Sir, expecting they stops, what will happen to the presences of such Afghan uprooted individuals and will they have a good life like us?

    My question is for Chris sands When I saw the petrified faces and worried hearts of the people of Afghanistan on Tv I was shocked and soon I came to know the reason behind it was that people knew the Taliban will snatch all their freedoms and rights. Why are the people not standing for themselves together? My question is, Can't they make Afghanistan free from the Taliban through peoples movement ?

    Hi Chris Sands,

    As you are an analyst and writer who has been expounding on Afghanistan starting around 2005 - living in Kabul for more than nine of those years, that is the reason I think you have the appropriate responses of my inquiries!

    • Would it be advisable for anyone to trust these guarantees from the Taliban?

    • Is there any sign things will be diverse today for Afghan individuals living under Taliban rule than they were 20 years prior, before U.S. troops went in there?

    • U.S. insight offices cautioned recently that Afghan powers could quickly fall, in spite of President Biden saying an absolute Taliban takeover was improbable. How did the president wind up misreading the present circumstance so gravely?

    • President Biden said the Afghan government planned to implode in the long run at any rate, that administration powers didnt have the will to make a battle and America cannot continue to set them up. Does he have a point here?

    • U.S. powers went into Afghanistan 20 years prior on the grounds that the 9/11 assaults were dispatched from that point by al-Qaida. With U.S. powers gone, what are the odds of that event once more?

    • We have seen the pictures of the turmoil at the air terminal in Kabul. What is the U.S. government committed to do with regards to getting individuals out of Afghanistan?

    My inquiry is :-

    During popular government in Afghanistan just before this unrest, how much did America's self-assured presence in Afghanistan sway its political arrangements, choices and asset distribution? Was it a genuine majority rules system or military driven government in light of the fact that even after every one of the cases it was as yet a US intrusion in Afghanistan?

    I also read about Pakzad as an Afghan mother of six. The Voice of Women is a women's NGO in Afghanistan, which is currently the only such organization operating in Herat, the third largest city in the west of the country. Afghan women find refuge in a service organization called Voice of Women.

    She was awarded the International Woman of the Year award by the US Department of State. The United States honors eight IIP Digital champions of human rights
    So after reading what Tom wrote about you and what you searched for, my question to you is, do the Afghans accept your work and the status of women at the present time?

Afghan ladies observe shelter in an assistance association called Voice of Women.

    She was granted the International Woman of the Year grant by the US Department of State. The United States praises eight IIP Digital bosses of basic freedoms

    So subsequent to understanding what Tom expounded on you and what you looked for, my inquiry to you is, do the Afghans acknowledge your work and the situation with ladies right now?

      And that it will be able to integrate women into society, but not by force, but rather by educating people and making them understand the importance of women's opinions and that they must take all their rights until a just state is established.

    Hello Mrs. Soraya Pakzad, I have a question for you about your work in the current situation in Afghanistan after the Taliban took control of Afghanistan. I learned that the Taliban set strict laws towards women, but can you protect their rights?

    have a question for Mrs. Soraya Pakzad, after the Taliban set strict rules for women and girls, including preventing them from going to schools and forcing them to wear the hijab. If you were asked to sacrifice your life in order to protect the rights of forbidden women, can you do that?

    I have a question for Soraya Pakzad: Where did you get that courage to bear the difficulties and challenges and how did you face them?
