An Afghan-Canadian business man shares his story about some events from the Afghanistan war when he was a child to this day.

An Afghan-Canadian Meladul Haq Ahmadzai, the CEO of Taleam Systems shares his story about some events from the war when he was a child to this day. He says, “Unfortunately, the Afghan people never have had the chance for a peaceful life." He adds, “Peace is the utmost desire of all Afghani people.” The war in Afghanistan which started in 2001 under then the George Bush administration is still going on with no end in sight to the conflict.

A lot of young people like Ahmadzai have grown up during the war and are calling for real peace in Afghanistan. Ahmadzai, who has also written extensively on the peace and war issues in Afghanistan, now says that life has improved for some western favours, but not for many ordinary poor people. “I don’t have to provide a statistic to prove my point," refers to all the research done by scholars and academics on the need in Afghanistan to do.

Meanwhile, tensions between the American government and the Taliban are high at all times than ever before. The Taliban and US signed an agreement back in February 2020. Ahmadzai says that this agreement is now not being upheld by all groups. “The war is dragging on under the new President." He refers to U.S. President Joe Biden who recently took office and said that the US’s troop withdrawal timeframe would unfortunately be extended under his presidency watch.

Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani has called for a new election after six months to be held sometime this year which would include all groups and potentially for the election turnaround to be higher than before. In the last election, about 1.5 to 2 million votes were cast. “I recall during the last election what happened. I think we all do.”

Both Ashraf Ghani and Dr. Abdullah claimed victory that they were the winners and hold themselves to power.

Ahmadzai concludes, “While the US and Afghans have different views about Afghanistan’s future democratic system, but it is clear that the time for peace has come."
