  • Afghanistan: Four& a half years later - look how far we have come!

    Afghan on trial for Christianity
    By Robert Pigott
    BBC Religious Affairs Correspondent


    An Afghan man is being tried in a court in Kabul for his conversion from Islam to Christianity.

    He could be sentenced to death for the act and his refusal to recant.

    The trial of Abdul Rahman reflects the struggle between religious hardliners and reformists over what shape Islam will take in Afghanistan.

    Mr Rahman was arrested last month after his estranged family - with whom he was in dispute over the custody of his two children - denounced him as a convert.

    Mr Rahman, who is 41, was found to be carrying a Bible and was charged with rejecting Islam.

    'Attack on Islam'

    He acknowledged during his trial that he did convert 16 years ago while a medical aid worker with a Christian group helping Afghani refugees in Pakistan.

    The prosecutor, Abdul Wasi, said he had offered to drop the charges if Mr Rahman would convert back to Islam, but he had refused to do so.

    Mr Wasi said therefore that Mr Rahman must get the death penalty.

    The trial judge has also described Mr Rahman's action as an attack on Islam.

    A sentence of death for Mr Rahman would be a significant precedent as a conservative interpretation of the Sharia law on which Afghanistan's constitution is based.

      What a bunch of tools. I dont think this is a bad reflection on American attempts to bring democracy to Afghanistan, it just reflects the fact these are primative tribal barbarians, and we should leave them alone and let them decimate themselves and not progress forward.

        Wow. All this time I expected Afghanistan to be just as developed as North America and Europe with its new democracy. Who would have thought it would take time and a little trial and error to get it right? Great thread Tricia. You really opened my eyes. I guess Afghanistan is a nation of humans instead of a bunch of constitutional cyborgs mastering democracy without ever trying it out!

          Except that we hear conservative's use Afghanistan as a feather in their cap over and over again. Afghanistan is described as a success story, even skeptics believe Kabul is now a stable, free and fair place to live. If this is what happens under the "progressive" Karzai government to men - I can't imagine what it must be like for women.

            Cultrual problem, not necessary a political one. The ones that come here from the Middle East get pretty much everything served to them on a silver platter, still they bring their cultural violence with them and are responsible for almost 65% of the rapes and murders. These guys couldn't handle democracy.

              Well, if they couldn't handle democracy, why were we stupid enough to go claiming to "bring it to them". We've utterly laid to waste whatever was left of Afghanistan of romantic notion. The warlords, whom we fed and fueled, are now the leaders and they aren't ready for democracy by a longshot. We built them. Why would they be??

                    Jesus, you'd think the Americans would at least be able to get rid of the Taliban! How can there be any hope for Iraq?

                      They went from the Taliban to democracy; of course mistakes will be made along the way. It took 100 years for the United States to end slavery after the Declaration of Independence. Yet because of one trial less, than five years after the overthrow of the Taliban, Afghanistan is now a failure? We should have adopted the Clinton/liberal philosophy of bomb the shit out of them and hope everything works out (see Afghanistan, Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Yugoslavia, ect).

                            Dont you guys even understand Tricia's point? Afghanistan was a SHITHOLE! Women were oppressed! Terrorists roamed free! Heroin was all over! Now, four years later, wouldnt you expect women to be equally employed? Wouldnt you expect all the terrorists to have moved to Iraq? Wouldn't you expect a drug free utopia?

                            You "Fat American's" will never get it. You'd had four years to turn Afghanistan into a functioning democracy! George Bush choked on a pretzel and fell off the segway at the same time and then took a shit, and did a democracy form? NO. Katrina, Cheney, Bush, Jews, Iraq, bombs, Osama, Deficit, Patriot act and cruise missiles... where is Clinton when you need him!!!

                              /\Heroin wasn't all over afganistan 4 years ago... The Taliban "was just saying no!" to drugs, that's why the first thing Bush did when he ascended to the Presidency (before he went on vacation) was given the Taliban $60,000,000.
