A brave na­tion

Southasia - - EDITOR'S MAIL -

It lifts one’s spirit to see a coun­try like Afghanistan, which the me­dia has por­trayed as a con­stant war­zone, mov­ing on the path to a peace­ful ex­is­tence. Peo­ple stepped out of their homes to vote in the face of se­ri­ous threats while the can­di­dates ran their cam­paigns de­spite sev­eral at­tacks by ter­ror­ists on their ral­lies and con­voys. Even­tu­ally, the brave se­cu­rity forces of Afghanistan made it pos­si­ble for the peo­ple to come out and vote by main­tain­ing peace through­out the coun­try.

The economic hur­dles that the new gov­ern­ment will face seem sec­ondary as com­pared to the threat of the re-emer­gence of the Tal­iban. The gov­ern­ment should brace it­self for all the chal­lenges it is likely to face.
