Pope Francis has criticized the West’s two-decade-long involvement in Afghanistan as an outsider’s attempt to impose democracy
INTERNATIONAL: With central and south Asian nations engulfed with the tremors of the Taliban's capture at the post-US withdrawal, the wave of its tremor also seems to have rocked the Vatican. lately, Pope-Francis was seen criticizing the west's two-decade-long involvement in Afghanistan as an outsider's attempt to impose democracy.
Pope Francis vehemently went on to say “It is necessary to put an end to the irresponsible policy of intervening from outside and building democracy in other countries, ignoring the traditions of the peoples,”
“I don’t know whether there will be a review or not (about what happened during the withdrawal), but certainly there was a lot of deception perhaps on the part of the new (Afghan) authorities,” said the pope. “I say deceit or a lot of naivety.”
He said he believed that the Vatican’s top diplomat was offering to engage in Afghanistan to make sure that locals don’t suffer and called for Christians across the world to engage in “prayer, penance and fasting” in the face of events in Afghanistan.
The chaos that the Taliban has created upon its own people has a drastic implication on many minds, culminating indefinite opinions and statements.
