Waiting for minimum critic reviews


For years, many have debated the relationship between religion and politics. In Secularism in Afghanistan, author Shukoor Zardushtian directs the discussion to Afghanistan, examining the role of religion in society in general and in Afghanistan in particular and analyzing the conflicts that arise from the mix of government and religion.

Gleaned from research and his personal experiences of living in Afghanistan, Secularism in Afghanistan studies the characteristics of Islam and Islamic ideology. Zardushtian presents a strong case for implementing secularism—religion separate from politics—in Afghanistan in order for its citizens to embrace freedom and social awareness. He presents evidence of how the Islamic religion destroyed the country’s cohesiveness and is responsible for the problems that exist today.

Zardushtian understands that changing society is not easy, but he offers Secularism in Afghanistan as a guidebook for the younger generation of the country to aid them in improving the economic and social climate.
