Kabul beats

A “Peace Concert” was organised by a youth organisation in Babur Garden in Kabul on October 19, 2013. These shows were banned under the Taliban’s strict Shariah law while they were in power between 1996 and 2001.

Thats great and good for Afghans. When is Afghan Govt going to recall/rehabilitate 5 million refugees living in Pakistan. They are there now in close to 40 years, are not productive just collecting charity. Involved in smuggling, drugs and terrorism. These individuals should be sent back soon.
