Syed Mujtaba Ali went to Afghanistan in 1926
Syed Mujtaba Ali went to Afghanistan in 1926

When Syed Mujtaba Ali went to Afghanistan to teach in 1926, Amanullah Khan was the king of Afghanistan. This modern Raja was a progressive thinker, gave up the practice of veiling girls, making schools and colleges for girls. The country brought in scholars from abroad. Mr. Ali went to teach in Afghanistan at his invitation. The name of dear student Mujtaba Ali was recommended by non other than Rabindranath himself. King Amanullah’s dream was that Afghanistan would compete with the western countries in knowledge.

But that happy day did not last long. The Progressive King quickly earned the title of “infidel or Kafir.” At this time, a fanatical extremist bandit named Bachchaye Sakao emerged from northern Afghanistan. As Bachha Sakao began to grow rapidly and gradually advanced towards Kabul, capturing Afghan cities one by one. To stop this brutal and extremist warlord, Amanullah Khan announced a price of 500 rupees for the Bachcha’s head. As Bachcha, heard the announcement and announced that he would pay 1000 rupees for the head of King Amanullah Khan!

Gradually, Amanullah’s army refused to fight for the king and they began to join the group of Bachcha in groups. Amanullah failed to stop the Bachcha and fled to the capital, Kabul. There was no one left to fight for Amanullah Khan. Seeing no other way, Amanullah took out new rifles from the arsenal and started distributing them among the people of Kabul. His last hope is if the people of Kabul can somehow stop the bandits. Then to describe what happened, Mr. Ali writes:

“I am most surprised to see the use of such guns by Kabul residents. Rifles are slung over their shoulders, bullet belts are tied around their waists, some are worn horizontally over their chests, some are bracelets on their arms, some are bracelets on their wrists, one or two on their feet!”

The weapon that poor Afghanistan bought from overseas by starving and to be used against rebellious, murderous bandits is now used as an ornament! “

No, not even a Kabul resident fired a single shot from his rifle at the bandit Bachcha. King Amanullah Khan escaped from Afghanistan to save his life and took refuge in Italy. As Bachcha Sakao captured Kabul without hindrance and carried out arbitrary looting. Millions of people fled Kabul for fear of their lives. Thousands of people were killed. Strict veil system is introduced again for women. The girls’ school was handed over to the college.

Return to modern days at today’s very same Afghanistan and see the story unfolding in a similar patern in Kabul.

Looking at the video of the Taliban’s occupation of Kabul in the last two days and seeing the influx of people at the airport to escape from Kabul, it looks like 1929 and 2021. Terror was horrible then as it now as well. Humanity takes a back step whenever fanaticism takes control over a democratic society.What a terrible match! History repeats itself!

Old history is back! Now it is the turn of covering the face with shame.
