The history of Afghanistan can be divided into that before September 11 and after. This rock laden country has seen many rebels and invasions before but now, with interference from US troops and NATO forces, it is totally different story. The people here have no voice and are under constant tyrannical rule by various forces. Russian invasion was the beginning of their letting in foreign forces.
The culture of Afghanistan is very complex and due to this complexity, it remains unknown to the outer world. The women still remain illiterate to a large extent and to get a stable and democratic rule in Afghanistan, education is essential. Only democratic rule can bring peace and safety to the people of Afghanistan. There are numerous quotes on Afghanistan by political leaders and also there are voices of some women who have aired their feelings. This is a compilation of such quotes.
