Saving Mes Aynak

Mes Aynak is a Gandharan Buddhist monastic complex that saw its golden years between the 5th and 7th centuries AD.  The site is a treasure trove of historical information and has yielded hundreds of statues, relics and stupas. Archaeologists have also begun to unearth a 5000 year old Bronze Age site under the Buddhist remains.  The location of Mes Aynak is unfortunate, but is also the reason for its existence.  The name literally means ‘little source of copper’. This is an understatement and what actually lies below the ancient structures is the second largest copper deposit in the world.  While this was the source of the success of the site’s early growth, it is now the cause of its woes. More>>>

 

Ancient Herat

Herat is an ancient city. Once the capital of an empire that stretched from Iran to China, it takes great pride in its cultural legacy. The five remaining minarets of the Musalla Complex are the most famous attraction, and a major part of Herat’s bid to be named a Unesco World Heritage Centre. Built in the 15th century, the complex was a wonder of its age. But in 1885, the British, fearing a Russian attack, blew it up, leaving only a few minarets. It was an act of cultural vandalism that rivals the Taliban’s destruction of the Buddha statues of Bamiyan over a century later. More>>>

Photos of Afghanistan

  Taverna Attack Impacts on Kabul’s Restaurants

The cowardly attack on Kabul’s well-known Taverna Restaurant on 17 January has had a devastating effect upon most of the other restaurants in Kabul, especially those who cater for foreigners. Sitting in one empty restaurant on Monday evening, staff told of how they had no customers over the week following the Taverna attack. “Just 2 or 3 take-aways, but no customers. Even some of the Afghan waiters are frightened to come to work,” one young Afghan waiter said, “and one has left this restaurant and will look for another job.”  Reports from other restaurants all sound the same.

Lost limbs: Afghan army casualties mount

Little is published about the huge casualties being sustained by the Afghan Naitonal Army and Police Forces.  US officials estimate that  last year more than 400 army and police were being killed in action every month.  Sergeant Muneer Ahmad is grim proof that the Afghan army is paying a heavy price in its war against the Taliban and struggling to care for its wounded.  Ahmad, 23, trod on a mine while fighting in the southern province of Kandahar six months ago. More>>>

  Afghan school growth ‘will survive political upheavals’

Afghanistan’s progress in reopening schools is irreversible and will survive any political upheavals, the country’s Education Minister, Farooq Wardak, has said. Mr Wardak said local communities were driving the demand for education and would protect schools after the withdrawal of overseas forces. He said the Taliban were guaranteeing the safety of schools in some regions. The minister said by 2020 every child would have a primary place. Mr Wardak promised that an equal number of boys and girls would be being enrolled, by the same date. More>>>

  Women’s Rights in Afghanistan Worsen in 2013 – Report

KABUL – Women’s rights in Afghanistan have regressed in the past year, increasing worry about what the future holds, according to a Human Rights Watch report released Thursday. The comprehensive global report outlines actions it says the Afghan government has taken to specifically undermine rights for women and girls.  Among those actions was a parliamentary attempt to appeal the groundbreaking law on the “Elimination of Violence Against Women,” which was passed by presidential decree in 2009. More>>>  and See the Full Report>>>

  Afghanistan Holds Enormous Bounty of Rare Earths, Minerals

Recent exploration of rare volcanic rocks in the rugged, dangerous desert of southern Afghanistan has identified world-class concentrations of rare earth elements, the prized group of raw materials that are essential in the manufacture of many modern technologies, from electric cars to solar panels. So far, geologists say, they have mapped one million metric tons of these critical elements, which include lanthanum, cerium and neodymium. That’s enough to supply the world’s rare earth needs for 10 years based on current consumption.  More>>>
