  • Wakhan - Poverty in northeast Afghanistan | Editor's Pick | 7 Sept 16

    The Wakhan corridor in northeastern Afghanistan is very much a 'forgotten' part of the country, though perhaps its only peaceful region. The landlocked peninsula ends at a 76-kilometre (47-mile) closed border with China, sandwiched between Tajikistan to the north and Pakistan to the south. Its formation was an aberration of 19th century geopolitics, split east to west in 1873 to create a buffer between the Russian and British empires. Afghanistan confirmed the new border 20 years later and Wakhan has been pretty much forgotten ever since. It's home to around 17,000 Ismailis, followers of the Aga Khan, one of the world's wealthiest men and their hereditary spiritual leader for 49 generations. But the level of poverty for the average resident is breathtaking. The situation has improved...

  • National museum in Kabul handed back looted artifacts

    (5 Aug 2012) STORYLINE: British officials handed over hundreds of historical artefacts to the Afghan National Museum in Kabul on Sunday, after they were stolen and smuggled abroad. First-century AD furniture decorations known as the Begram Ivories and an important sculpture of Buddha from the second or third century AD were among the pieces. Both of these items were stolen from Afghan museums during the 1992-94 civil war following the withdrawal of Soviet troops. The oldest artifacts date back more than 4-thousand years to the late third millennium BC and include Bronze Age cosmetic flasks, stamp seals and statuettes. There are also bowls, coins, metal and pottery vessels from the Islamic medieval period. The items were illegally smuggled to Britain and were confiscated by the Brit...

    This 2016 documentary shows us an Afghanistan back in time that might never return: a safe and beautiful place for travellers. What seems unthinkable today: Places in Afghanistan like Kabul, Herat, Kandahar, Band-e Amir or Bamiyan were dream destinations for travellers on the so-called ´hippie trail´ in the 1960s and 1970s. With lots of original footage, we see how enchanted Westerners felt in a country that was hospitable, relaxed and landscapes. With lots of film material from those days, we can understand how breathtaking this country once was. Many different travellers tell us about their experiences, starting with Tony and Maureen Wheeler, founders of famous traveller´s bible ´Lonely Planet´, singer Donovan who searched enlightenment in the East, or a former leftist terrorist from Ger...

The Wakhan corridor in northeastern Afghanistan is very much a 'forgotten' part of the country, though perhaps its only peaceful region. The landlocked peninsula ends at a 76-kilometre (47-mile) closed border with China, sandwiched between Tajikistan to the north and Pakistan to the south. Its formation was an aberration of 19th century geopolitics, split east to west in 1873 to create a buffer between the Russian and British empires. Afghanistan confirmed the new border 20 years later and Wakhan has been pretty much forgotten ever since. It's home to around 17,000 Ismailis, followers of the Aga Khan, one of the world's wealthiest men and their hereditary spiritual leader for 49 generations. But the level of poverty for the average resident is breathtaking. The situation has improved slightly in recent years. Foreign governments and non-government organisations have funded bridges, irrigation channels, reforestation projects, schools and a clinic: the Aga Khan's various foundations; the Norwegian, Japanese and Indian governments; the UN Development Programme; the World Food Programme, the US Agency for International Development; the Rappani Foundation, the Central Asia Institute. But the list only emphasises the Wakhan's almost complete reliance on the largesse of the outside world. Saeed Beg lives with his wife and five children in a two-room mud house that has no electricity or running water, no bathroom, kitchen or furniture apart from a few threadbare rugs and a couple of thin mattresses. He barters his sheep and goats for food under the barter system that is the main form of financial transaction and says the family eats meat maybe twice a year. They struggle to get enough food - and his family's position is not unusual here. The main street of Wakhan's administrative centre of Khandood is lined with shops, wooden shacks on stilts, most padlocked shut. A few young men hang around as there's not much else to do. For lack of any other opportunities, many young Wakhi men join the armed forces, according to Shah Ismail, whose ancestors have represented the Aga Khan here for hundreds of years and who lives in the hamlet of Qala-i-Panja, where he also has a guesthouse. Young men who join the police and army serve their country on the front lines in Helmand and Kandahar, and they do this to feed their families. And yet they have never been recognised by the government for their sacrifices, for their clean living, respect for the law. Forty-year-old Mohammad Faazel runs a shop in central city of Wakhan. He sells biscuits, cigarettes, rice, locally grown red onions and other food items. But his best collection in a day would be 80 to 100 Afghanis which is a little less than two US dollars. Paper money in Wakhan, where the largely Tajik people are known as Wakhis and speak a Pamiri dialect called Wakhi, is almost useless. The people are so poor they buy food on credit and their children go barefoot during the long winters, when daytime temperatures drop to minus-20 degrees Celsius and the valley is cut off by deep snow. They measure their wealth in livestock, grow wheat for bread, and oats for their animals. Mullah Mohammad and his family live in a village called Pegish, on the edge of the main road connecting Ishkashem with the rest of the Wakhan corridor. He and his family mainly survive on what they harvest from their farming field. This year the wheat has been struck by a blight that has turned the ears red and the bread black, so the people are eating more oats and using more livestock to barter for food when it arrives by truck from outside the valley. It's such a long and arduous drive for the traders willing to make the trip that the price of rice is triple that even in the capital, Kabul, almost 400 kilometres (250 miles) southwest. So Mohammad and his family make do with whatever little they can harvest from their fields. The presence of the Taliban so nearby has further isolated the valley by making the road between Ishkashim and the rest of the country impassable. It has also instilled a fear that the insurgents may target them simply because they are followers of the Ismaili branch of Shiite Islam, widely considered a cult by other Muslims, and especially the Sunni Taliban. The local authorities are trying to change things. Two years ago, the Kabul government named the Wakhan a national park, Afghanistan's second, though without first consulting with the local people which is the usual practice before a protected area is declared. That could help bring foreign tourism to the area and bring about much-needed development to the region, as long as the local residents can be convinced it will be to their benefit.

Four foreigners were among the nine victims of an attack at a luxury hotel in Afghanistan's capital on Thursday evening (March 20), according to a BBC report. The Afghan government, has blamed the Kabul attack on Pakistan's ceasefire with the Taliban, saying it has enabled the militants to focus their attention on Afghanistan. The four gunmen who carried out the attack, all reportedly aged under 18, were killed by Afghan security forces. The militants arrived at the Serena hotel at around 6 p.m. with guns hidden in their socks. They went through security checks claiming to be diners at the hotel's special buffet, according to an AFP report. Once inside the hotel, they hid in one of the bathrooms for around three hours. At 9 p.m. they entered the hotel's restaurant and opened fire on guests and hotel personnel. Outside the hotel, the Afghan Crisis Response Unit quickly put up a heavy cordon and once inside engaged in a more than an hour-long battle which ended with in the deaths of all four attackers. Terrified guests fled the restaurant, hid in their rooms or found shelter in safety bunkers around the complex, the New York Times reported. Jane Ferguson, an Al Jazeera television journalist staying at the hotel, said on Twitter that she "just got out of Serena hotel safe. Horrible few hours with furniture against my door." The foreign nationals killed were from Canada, India, New Zealand and Pakistan, according to Reuters. Four women, three men and two children were killed in the attack. Six others were wounded in the shootings, Deputy Interior Minister General Mohammad Ayub Salangi was quoted by the BBC as saying. An Afghan MP, Habib Afghan, was shot in the face, stomach and leg and is now recovering in a hospital. The Taliban has since claimed responsibility for the attack. The hotel lies in the centre of Kabul, less than 1 kilometer from the presidential palace. A popular destination for wealthy visitors in Kabul, it has been one of the most frequent targets of the Taliban, and it has been successfully attacked several times before, the BBC reported.

(5 Aug 2012) STORYLINE: British officials handed over hundreds of historical artefacts to the Afghan National Museum in Kabul on Sunday, after they were stolen and smuggled abroad. First-century AD furniture decorations known as the Begram Ivories and an important sculpture of Buddha from the second or third century AD were among the pieces. Both of these items were stolen from Afghan museums during the 1992-94 civil war following the withdrawal of Soviet troops. The oldest artifacts date back more than 4-thousand years to the late third millennium BC and include Bronze Age cosmetic flasks, stamp seals and statuettes. There are also bowls, coins, metal and pottery vessels from the Islamic medieval period. The items were illegally smuggled to Britain and were confiscated by the British Museum and British security forces. Afghan Deputy Cultural minister, Musadiq Khalili, said the return of these treasures to the Afghan National Museum in Kabul was the result of contributions by the British Museum and British security forces "British security forces and the British Museum confiscated these pieces with the help of the catalogue they had and brought them back to Afghanistan," said Khalili. It is the second huge handover of Afghan historical pieces by the British government. In 2009, it handed over about 1500 historical pieces to the National Museum of Afghanistan.

This 2016 documentary shows us an Afghanistan back in time that might never return: a safe and beautiful place for travellers. What seems unthinkable today: Places in Afghanistan like Kabul, Herat, Kandahar, Band-e Amir or Bamiyan were dream destinations for travellers on the so-called ´hippie trail´ in the 1960s and 1970s. With lots of original footage, we see how enchanted Westerners felt in a country that was hospitable, relaxed and landscapes. With lots of film material from those days, we can understand how breathtaking this country once was. Many different travellers tell us about their experiences, starting with Tony and Maureen Wheeler, founders of famous traveller´s bible ´Lonely Planet´, singer Donovan who searched enlightenment in the East, or a former leftist terrorist from Germany who became all peaceful in a country that is torn by wars today. Drugs unfortunately were another reason why people loved to stay in Afghanistan, but in these days, even science wasn´t fully aware yet how dangerous some drugs could be, like LSD. No wonder that there are numerous tombstones of young Western travellers in places like Kabul. (Please note that I absolutely don´t want to propagate any use of drugs. It was unfortunately a part of the youth movement in the 1960s and 1970s and as we know today, took too many lives of young people who only wanted to experience freedom.) Istanbul / Turkey is also shown as a stop-over of the hippie trail. What an amazing route, from Western Europe into Turkey, Iran, Afghanistan on to India, Nepal and finally reaching far-eastern countries like Thailand. Travelling was easy, cheap and safe. Entering Afghanistan became impossible after the military coup in 1978, and that was the end of the hippie trail. Will peace and safety ever come back to this region? No copyright infringe intended. I do not own anything in the video, everything belongs to its respective owners.
