Mujahedeen’s Victory Day, which falls on 27-28 April each year, is observed to commemorate the withdrawal of Soviet occupation troops from Afghanistan.
After Soviet Army left Afghanistan, the Mujahedeen went on fighting with Dr. Najibullah’s communist government that lasted about three years and finally after the fall of Najibullah’s government the Mujahedeen announced their victory in 1992.
But the people of Afghanistan and a number of Jihadi commanders, who contributed in Jihad (Holy war) against the Soviet troops, say still their wish of establishing an Islamic States was not fulfilled.
In 1978, the government of Muhammad Daud Khan was overthrown during a military coup by People’s Democratic Party of Afghanistan (PDPA) and Noor Muhammad Taraki became the President of Afghanistan. This military coup paved the ground for Red Army (Soviet Union) to invade Afghanistan that occupied this country for ten years.
After the Mujahedeen overthrew Dr. Najibullah’ government and announced their victory, three years after the withdrawal of Soviet Union, the civil war begun in Afghanistan that followed many tragic events in the country.
According to the analysts, lack of accurate management and weaknesses in the mujahedeen groups caused to bring Taliban’s regime in Afghanistan which led the country towards deep darkness until the international community entered Afghanistan in 2001.
Although about ten years passed since the entrance of the United States and its allies, still the Afghans have not achieved a sustainable stability and security in the war-torn country Afghanistan.
