Some Afghan intellectuals take the easy way out to become famous:
There are well educated personalities that seldom concentrate in their own fields of study while taking the short rout copy writing thousands of repeated pages of history inserting their names as the author. An example of such, among others, is Said Dr. Abdullah Kazim doing the same repetition in AGO as we speak in response to Dr. Qayum Kôchi’s recent article.
We were also stunned opening Dr. Kôchi’s long article expecting a PhD level exchange of thought, while in actuality it was not much more than repeating the same historical event of last and present century.
Of course, Dr. Kôchi bragged about his nephew based on geniality connection reminding us of Dr. Ghani’s geniuses, worldly thinker status and he top it off reminding us of his Dr. Ghani's level of education.
Dr. Qayum Kôchi should be reminded that Dr. Ghani Ahmadzai first self-powered PhD level, was about Afghanistan history from Amir Abdul Rahman Khan to Amanullah Khan. After 1980’s, he changes course advocating faith based – other than Afghan nationalism – opposition to counter Soviet advances and went to Pakistan improving his knowledge in that field. Dr. Ghani was against the train of thought of some Afghans and Americans, which at the time was arguing that ideological based struggle will take back Afghanistan to 13th century. Instead advocating to fight back the Soviets via Afghan nationalism. Dr. Ghani’s such oposition video voice is still can be heard, loudly stating in Persian that “Ao Bachee Khaar, Afghanistan kai the qarn 13 bood “.
No one can whitewash that Dr. Ghani’s main legacy is that, that he institutionalized the artificial ethnic fault line in Afghanistan and deliberately hand over Afghanistan to be placed back around 13th century. He seems to be a backward Dud.
