Who Is Triumphant: Me Or Cyrus? A
Personal Encounters In Face Of Spying, Democracy And
24 November 2012
By Fareed Ahmadi
Once Cyrus, a British national, was delivering his
lecture in a seminar held in Peshawar in 2007 and I
attended it. We got the impression that he was an
agent of Mossad (an Israeli intelligence agency) as he
mostly talked about the dominance of Jewish policy
over the world.
One day we had a hot argument about the type of
government which could completely satisfy human mind
and the people of the world. His choice, in this
regard, was democracy. I asked him about the meaning
of ‘democracy' and he replied that it meant ‘equality'
and that it was a system in which everyone is given a
right to elect his/her members or president by casting
vote in his favor. He reiterated that it is a good
news for the Afghans that only democracy can
completely gratify all the people and so the Afghanis.
I reminded Cyrus that Islam is a comprehensive code of
conduct which regulates all human relationships,
individual as well as social, male as well as female.
As it is not a man-made law, it does not leave out
even the minor rights of all the creatures of Allah,
both human and animal. I diverted his attention
towards the fact that Afghans' mind had been regulated
by Islamic Shareea (Islamic law) since time
immemorial, and since then Afghanistan hadn't followed
any foreign man-made imported law. I told him that
Islam was the linchpin of Afghan society and that
Ulema gave direction to our society. Ulema, I told
him, had a great influence on everyone. I further made
him realize that their puppet government could not
serve their purpose and will lead them to their
shameful end. He was further told that they had been
defeated many times but they still had the illusive
feeling that Afghan Muslims would be inspired by their
Such argumentations became a daily routine and started
trying to weaken my logical arguments.
‘NATO invaded our country but the day is very near
that you would become hunted fugitive' I reminded him
once. ‘Certainly not,' He snorted. ‘You afghan can't
feed yourself, let alone defeating an organization
with the support of the entire world's highly trained
army who are equipped with advanced technology. And
furthermore, there is the support of Muslim countries
and also they are morally supported worldwide. Your
neighboring countries and all Islamic countries are
supporting us; they all call you terrorist'.
I, once again, diverted his mind to the sayings of
Amir-ul-Momineen Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid (May
Allah protect him) in the interview with BBC, which
was just after the first airstrikes of filthy
invaders, that America would lose its balance and
tumble backwards and it was the wish of Allah almighty
and then nothing would help NATO to preserve itself,
neither technology nor economically supported world
best trained army.
The argument got prolonged. Finally, we had to bet on
it and agreed to wait for the result and see who wins.
And the result, of course, will be the colossal defeat
of NATO as soon as Allah almighty desires.
We, the Afghan Muslims, will never let anyone impose
any type of religious or man-made laws on us except
