11:36 am
presidents are fairly stunning. turnarounds all the events. ali what you remember from that day about that day? i mean it is, it said that the day that our entire world changed within a few hours. i remember that late in the morning, there was the sound of gunshots near where i live, and everyone thought that the taller bond were coming that. and everyone was running like it was a disaster movie. you know, everyone was just trying to get back to their homes and then, you know, people basically shut themselves in their houses for the rest of the day. and then all of a sudden came the news that the former president just ran away. he just fled and he took his, you know, high level cabinet officials as advisors, whatnot with him,
11:37 am
most of whom had foreign passports. you know, there was no message. there was nothing for 11 days as a tele barton was taking province after province after province. no one from the former government bother to give any kind of a statement. no one said, we're sorry, no one says we failed. no one said, we're trying to gain these provinces back. and then all of a sudden, you know, probably 10, 11 o'clock at night. you turn on the news and there's the tall, a bon in the presidential. so here when you see those pictures, what are you thinking? what are you feeling with is an incredible sense of triumph and victory for the taliban? yes, it was indeed. it goes. that is that order, 20 years sacrifices i was trying to over liberation of both countries from the patient. so this one legitimate, right?
11:38 am
any one has the right to independence to live in an independent county. it's what i was about to struggle. fertilization for country nvg that oscar piloted to decays almost 20 years and a lot of losses and sacrifices and equipment and sold both of me women and children. elder lease apartments. i'm wondering why no later in retrospect is fighting 11 governing well that that was a this, we were struggling for liberation,
11:39 am
a poor country. now. we are struggling already better rebuilding our country. fordham in telling pays instability in the country. this is elsewhere struggle for us. and we are still the case if hundreds, astride from, from, or the most country water politically we're to eat it. so we will succeed. and we have succeeded in this one year the mega project of which they pay on the completion of this project. we well again and delegation, 3000000 acres of land, and i why the stand will become or cassidy reliant. details of food that has not been done in 20 years. while we are bringing it with inter hymns when we bring it.
11:40 am
our other example that if you did, we bring in the gym or voids they did that. so here let me bring in a female voice is to share the conversation. this is are a tab nori a passionate. i want you to have a listen to her tab and then balance of the back of him because for tab, this one year has been a horrible anniversary. i'm interested in your perspective, but his retype festival. 15th of august 2021 was the worst day in my life. it was a loss of everything, a diverse of every single. again, we heard in past 2 decades, and it took away my country from me. it uprooted me and it took away my family and now we are dispersed around the world. and i don't think the life is going to be the same ever. and it's really difficult to go back to afghanistan and live there as a journalist and be free to work. and my profession well,
11:41 am
allow me to start by collecting the fact that we didn't have games because that was to nurse were in our country for the past due to kids. we had rights we before that we had rights in the 60s, in the twenties and including up until the eighty's and then people to go or that's the 1st thing we had in the 1960 s a women's health minister. and then in the 1950s, we had an education minister, we had women representatives, we had to women and school in the past century. these are all gains and the west has never helped us get those gains. we went there and got them by ourselves, and our women got them for ourselves. those are the 1st thing that we need to understand. women have been enough on the science leadership in the ancient upon us on starting from go or shot until soraya, and then even the main t 60 would minister nor say. now let's come back to winning the country. i do find it interesting when we say, when the taliban said that the country has been won out from the occupation,
11:42 am
do you think it's not an economic occupation that the countries have struggling as a meter? i said that the people are still under debt, that people are still struggling to find a loaf of bread. don't you think that's also occupation? don't we think that country still being drawn back is also occupation on the fact that the book and not enter and leave. and most importantly, that the taliban government has to ask the theme superpowers who kept on asked l, kept on bumping them for money that they need and they keep on asking for legitimacy. so when you're free, you're me, you make your own decisions when you're not for you make the decision than the pastor governments did. and the current taliban do under someone else's name and radar. let me just share this with ally. this is abdul co ha balcony. he is a spokesperson for the islamic emerett of afghanistan, and these are the gains in the past year for 70 establish central government, political stability, and security carol in, in displacement. i must inclusiveness,
11:43 am
are fully independent budget increase access to education and health care. i know that you spend time in afghanistan reporting. can you check any of these and say yes, i've seen this, i've seen this. i've seen this i mean, i live in avalon. so fully independent budget, i don't know where that comes from because you're still under sanctions. and you know, what we have to remember is that, yes, these governments want to punish the taller bond government who they don't like whether the people want to like them or not. that's a separate issue. but the foreign governments don't like them. but unfortunately, what's happening is it's not mr. shaheen. it's not mr. bell. he's not these people who are suffering under the sanction. it's the average people of this country. i live in a central part of the city every single day, 5 minutes for my house. there's 2 food distribution sites. there's at least a 100 people outside each time. these are not the poor becker,
11:44 am
these are not the rural villagers who unfortunately have always been hungry in this country. they're hungry now they're unemployed. now they're underpaid. now, you know, i've talked to go government workers were sitting at home, male and female in law guide, and couple who say that their wages have been reduced by 7080. but and yet, you know, their costs have skyrocketed because the costs of food have doubled and tripled recently. so, you know, fully financially independent that makes no sense. there is no proof of that. i mean, i hope that they can become financially independent and i want nothing more than that for i want to finally become financially independent and pushed on. i said, you know, we have to remember that, you know, that this occupation was never set up to make. it was never set up to help us and was never set up to, to make us self sufficient for 20 years. they make it as a dependent and now they're making as a dependent again, by constantly sending money and distributions and so on and so forth at the united
11:45 am
nations control, the government doesn't control it. so no, i'm sorry, like this, this financially. fully financially independent. i have no idea where that comes from, but not the lives of the ab on people. so he'll audience on youtube are asking questions and they really like the idea that they have access to you into your information. they are asking about an economic plan for afghanistan. what is that? it can wait on forster, our budget to retrieve assumed it, it was b, 2 based oh or into another? when use it is. it is the 1st time we a presented a budget without any help i none shall help from any country but the fella charts and i own a one. a one. we are located about 28000000000 up on his
11:46 am
father, big lemon. oh products. so this is, this is a night unit. oh, similarly, we hum, shaw, and young girl glance. do you love me? flung the construction cream and the lawn, auto hub line is down to be self reliant. i the things into your control handle this. i have a fast and adding a 2nd. so how come when, how can i understand become self reliant without having to 50 percent of population working? and what do you mean by development? it's not something that i would want to explore in the long run, but i really need to understand how the talib i'm seated wasn't that was the 1st. the 2nd when to when i tune when they are not allowed to work or study, how do you see them up on a some will become self reliant when we have to ask pakistan on it. i'm for doctors
11:47 am
that's done to asking buxton it on the realtor of that to say a position of the open it's we have some of this for the landlord got upset, rush point to a quantity of give me time and i will. it's me. yes. while we have her, as i mentioned the which the about project it is i still in the direction i do become self aligned. i say, how can i push you a little bit very weird because we have a we have to move on to that. but some of the passion on, at austin, which i thought was very relevant because you talked about that project, my understand what you're saying. but passionately was very specific about how can i've got some new 4050 percent of the population. a women are not able to freely walk. yes, the day,
11:48 am
she doesn't reflect that ground realities because the it is there about her for her 100450000 students, both male and female studying dryer it in public. no universities. she didn't mission, that is, oh yeah, yeah, yeah. so let me, yes, yes. okay, the conversation with alan. yeah, thank you. to heal, everyone wants to talk to you at your the man at the moment and he go ahead. what did you want to ask? we keep talking about reconstruction and rebuilding, why do we need to reconstruct what happened that we need to reconstructing? how did, how did it get deconstructed? well we, we kind of still, we have started go construction as i sat there kalika game. it was the 15th
11:49 am
of my question. as we're talking about reconstruction and rebuilding, how did things get he constructed, how did they get destroyed, that they need to be reconstructed? now, but my question, yes, that, that buzzer destroyed by the bombardment or by the heavier ones or of the cobbled disease in the invaders because we didn't have a heavy weight. and so we had a collection quote in witty lightweight on so we were not able to do a, a destroyed that we had that, but now we are building it all right, and we will have a system with what we have. we will be good to be a, have started the building, and there are work on the, from the heart, it out will begin that a line from was like, spawn to sort of a attraction. i
11:50 am
have already begun, so on detail work. thank you, allie. i'm going to push on because our audience also wants us to move on, because they're asking for development work and the way forward in the future if afghanistan, i'm going to go to that line of thinking via has a bar who is calling on the international community for more help, his header the last year has been a complete disaster for human rights in afghanistan. women and girls have seen pretty much all their rights stripped away. and that's not all. there's also been extra judicial killings, torture silencing of the afghan media to we're asking, what is the international community going to do about this? and the answer so far seems to be not much, but there are a few things the international community can do and should do the human rights council when it convenes in september, should put in place
11:51 am
a much stronger mechanism to monitor, collect evidence, and facilitate prosecutions. for crimes happening and the security council should and exemptions to the travel band that they have in place for taliban leaders. my son, i'm just thinking about this past year for afghanistan and the international community on the sidelines. how do you see that impact to what could be possible i think, is starting with the fact that the international community still thinks that using last century sanctions on a current countries crisis is something that we should be doing. and that something that will find a solution, i don't think right now um the current sanctions help any one. but the western countries to keep the aid to themselves that is allocated off on that the country right now is suffering and it, the sanctions don't, don't have a farm. it's done. it actually more am makes it worse for the people who are
11:52 am
actually already hungry already are suffering great. now coming back to one thing that i really want to highlight when you talk about development, when you talk about progress. here's the thing in the next 5 years, the population of up of understand continues to grow. and when you say that you have 400000 students and schools and universities, i am asking a specific question from grade. so on up into great. well, if you don't have a girl, there's reading from grade 12 within this academic year, you won't have a midway within the next 2 years and the population continues to grow. so when your population continues to grow, you don't have that specific number of midwives in a country that's working like up on us that you don't progress. you don't develop, you need to building capacity of your students who are in high school who need to continue who need to graduate from high school and start continuing and getting educated. that was my question. thank you. yeah, i did. you didn't mention that prior into
11:53 am
high schools all in the country. they are open for verse or secondary. wow. wow. in this part of the why are all one, it is good. there is no restriction. and then why you didn't mention that these are the, you know, you are hiding a ground. gabriella is while you are hiding, that could only be a little bit going around in circles. pastrana, i'm not sure you're going to get an answer. you should interrupt me because i'm not interrupting. did you not? i understand. i'm not interrupting you. i'm. i'm moving. i was moving our question, i'm moving our playground on. we haven't, we haven't been traveling about one is done yet. of the secondary school law on why
11:54 am
she didn't mentioned. alright, so he'll patch donna, we are moving on. thank you so much about what has not happened in afghanistan is in our conversation right now, but i'm gonna move on to what has happened. there is a province called banyan province and ali, can you tell us a little bit about it before i bring in a report that you did about tourism potentially flourishing there? because this is perhaps how some of the economy for afghanistan can be reinvigorated. it may be showing that there is a little bit more security around as well. if people are going on visits going on, trips, maybe even going on vacation. and he tell us about bam, ya profits in just a minute. and then i will go to your report. sure, it's not just for me on it as many different provinces, you know, for, for 20 years the roads are unsafe because of checkpoints, and land mines and crossfire and things like that. so people weren't able to travel
11:55 am
freely, like just 2 days ago i went to log out of province, her story with no worries. at one point, it was one of the most dangerous provinces in the country. and you know, we have to give credit. this is one of the positive development, of course, part of the development is that the war is no longer going on. the checkpoints are no longer there and the risk of landmines are no longer there. yeah. like, you know, this is something that gives people a sense of hope. seeing families travel, seeing them be able to see their country for one. i love this report. i really love this report because i saw police skies and was kinda having a great time. he's a little bit of allie's report and it's a scene for me. i've got a son that we don't see often enough. take a look. this is what some of the piece insecurity looks like and honest on thousands of families coming from all over the country to enjoy the wonders of band . i mean national park. but the big question now is, how will all of this impact the economy of balmy on a province that was ignored for more than 20 years by the former government?
11:56 am
i am wondering guess if sanctions and sanctions on us gallus don is the one weights that he's stopping afghanistan for moving forward. i know you're going to have different perspectives, but i'm just going to get you to i'm going to give you one minute each to wrap up the show. alley, is it, is it the sanctions that stopping afghanistan from developing? if the biggest issue well her for the upon people that the biggest issue for them right now is that they have no money. you know, like people who work in the government including women have had their wages reduced because of the government doesn't have money. a cannot pay people, you know, we lived in a country where the 1st 2000 a year, 75 percent of the public expenditure came from the foreign aid grants. and then all of a sudden they cut them off. and what did they do? they left the people hungry even if the tall about a government wants to do things for the people, it's going to be difficult. well,
11:57 am
let me just share the final thoughts with passion on it as well past on a into sentences go ahead. i think she's going to help her country, but also taliban have to make sure that b i ensure rights and safety to all the population of of parmesan and in time sections don't tell i think sanctions should be left under patch donna. so he'll get the last word. thank you for being in robust conversations. sanchez? yes, dennis, yes, it's their practice. the shout is sanctions printing what was done from development and preventing people. wow. i'm not i'm alive to how job trinity. sorry, this hill, they should reconsider. thank you. so here we have to get you back. you've been so popular with our online audience. they have so many questions for you that we have to get you back for another episode of the stream, but for now. so he'll patch donna and ali. thank you so much for being part of today's show. let me show you here on my laptop, where you can follow them on twitter. so he'll pash, donna and ali,
