‘Soviet invasion behind Afghanistan chaos’ (Video)
KABUL (Pajhwok): On the eve of 35 anniversary of Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, former inmates recalled on Saturday the Russian invasion of Afghanistan put the country into quagmire and eternal anarchy. Everything was being governed by Russians and their puppets in the Afghan government, recalled Sayed Ahmad who was imprisoned twice during the Soviet onslaught of Afghanistan. Sayed Ahmad, who is paralyzed from both legs and has acquired mental problems, told Pajhwok Afghan News that both times he was tortured while in prison. “The inmates were tortured for being Muslim. They were electrocuted, burnt, or even had their nails pulled,” the wailing Ahmad recalled.
