Youth Disappointment During President Ghani’s Rule

In an interview with National Television, President Ashraf Ghani spoke harshly about Afghanistan’s young generation. He criticized the young generation on several occasions. He called the youth powerless and claimed that this generation is not able to bear the burden of responsibility.
“I hope you have to do the tasks that I am supposed to do,” he told a young woman who asked him about peace, unemployment and poverty, “then, I will see whether you have the shoulders to bear these burdens and not sigh?” The president criticized the education of young people in universities, saying, “How many of you study in your universities? How many of you get a second chance? How many of you want permission for the third and fourth chances? Look at your own activities. How will the choice of what you study benefit Afghanistan?” In addition, Ghani called the young generation sentimental and misjudging, who first speak and then think.
When the president accuses all the young generation of the country of incompetence and evasion of responsibility, it is necessary to remember the 45,000 young security forces who were killed during his four years in office. Is he aware that more than 55% of the country’s citizens live below the poverty line? Is he aware of the heartache of young people who, after receiving their degree, go from office to office on a daily basis to find a job but often fail? The president should be asked what happened to the promise of creating millions of new jobs in the 2014 elections. If the promise had not been an empty promise, a large part of the challenges of the new generation would have been solved today. If the young people of this land are not fighters, will their generation be able to secure even the presidential palace?
The young generation of the country has no role in the destruction and devastation of the country. At the same time, it is this generation that today, from the plains of Bagwa to the heights of Wakhan and from the sand of Zaranj to Spin Boldak and Hairatan, has guarded the soil of this country. It protects the high values of this land. This is the young generation that today raises the country’s colorful flag, from the Olympics to inter-university competitions around the world. We can see dozens and hundreds of cases for each of these statements, but a president who ignores all these achievements of the young generation is questionable. Perhaps, the only young people he knows are the customary leaders and young people who get the opportunity to go to the presidential palace at various ceremonies. It would not be out of place to mention the appointment of a peace negotiating team. He has chosen a leader to represent millions of young people. The question is, what other characteristics does this representative of the young generation have besides being a leader, whom Ghani has chosen as the representative of the young generation of his country?
After all, who is responsible when a country’s president criticizes the country’s education system? Ashraf Ghani said, “How what you read will benefit Afghanistan?” Do the fields of study that have been created at public universities not benefit the youngsters or the country? If so, why is so much capital wasted in these sectors that do not benefit the country? Why do the Ministry of Higher Education and other departments allow the creation of departments that do not benefit the country? Why he, who claims to be the second top thinker in the world, did he not use his thinking for the country’s education system to teach the youth a lesson that can benefit everyone?
Undoubtedly, in every country and in every university, along with knowledgeable and hard-working students, there are a number of young people who have passed the exam. If we assume that more university students in the country fail the exam and get a second and third chance, why don’t the officials, especially the president of the country, know the main reason for this laziness and absconding? The president would never know that a village boy who walks to class in the morning has to face uncertainty, even about his own security and life? Or how can he judge the feelings of youngster who has to think about his old parents, who are looking for their beloved child to complete his education and secure a good job, but this child cannot return home due to security and economic problems. Or the feeling of a young man is thinking about what will happen to his father and older brother who were captured by the militants a few days ago? The president will never know their feelings because he has been save and secure himself and at the same time responsible for the existence of such circumstances.
Ashraf Ghani’s remarks were in fact an escape from unanswered questions. Afghanistan in 2014 was far better than in 2020. Whether in terms of security, economy or social and political circumstances. In 2014, poverty and unemployment were much lower than they are today. Because in 2014, poverty and unemployment were 34 and 38 percent, but today they reach 54 and 55 percent. Security is deteriorating day by day. Corruption persists, with dozens of corruption cases that Ashraf Ghani promised to eliminate, still linger; including the promise of creating two million new jobs and the promise of bringing positive changes to the people’s lives.
The president, who must apologize to the people, especially to the young generation, for not fulfilling his promises, instead attacks the young generation and criticizes them. Ashraf Ghani insults and humiliates the citizens, especially the young generation, who have been giving all sorts of sacrifices every day. This will further annihilate the youngsters from responsibilities and encourage them to adopt militancy and other means of achieving their needs and objectives.
