  2. The unfortunate trend in Afghanistan is that more and more of the ‘secular’ laws being passed are indistinguishable from the Sharia Law rules….

    Of course, these are being ‘democratically’ passed by the elected officials… Not the same thing at all…

    It takes time to change the attitudes. Yet, as long as the laws are made by an elected parliament, they CAN be changed!!!!

    You are an optimist, xanthippa😆 I like that.

    But I just think these are social trends and till the society does not reject them, it’s going to be truly difficult to fight them, whether there is democracy or not…😦
