Khawanda jameeyat ye krai badal pa praishaanee
Har cha che jameeyat kralo praishaan da pukhtano
King Zahir Shah passed away a few days ago. Of course when I heard the news, warta may dua wokra. Khudai day wobakhee mong tolo musalmanano sara. But since he once was a King and now was “da melat Baba” i can’t help but to discuss something very important about my melat, the melat that he was supposedly baba to. I know it is not right to talk about those who have crossed to the other side, but I feel if someone is or was in a position that he was in, then we have to and we need to discuss the good and the bad deeds of that person. So it will be a lesson for those of us living and for those in the future.
I am not even going to ask what King Zahir Shah did for our melat and our beloved language. Because I know the answer is not a pretty one. Forget about him serving his mother tangue, forget about him speaking in his mother tangue, forget about him promoting his mother tangue, forget about him loving and respecting his mother tangue. What kills me is the damages he and his royal family did to this innocent and beautiful language. It was during this era that pashtu started disappearing from the mainstream media, it was during this era that everyone who worked for the government started speaking in farsi. It was during this era that most schools started teaching subjects in farsi. It was during this era that pashtu kept getting kicked and looked down upon. ufffff no tsa wowayama, the list is long….aw da bada murgha, all these abuses to pakhtu stayed even when the King was no more the King. Cause parsos had gotten used to this new superiority and pakhtuns had lost thier ghairat to do anything about it..till recently of course, and now that we have revolted and now that we have declared che no more zulim to our beautiful langage, we are labled fascists. Well if loving my language, a language that is the language of the majority of my country, and promoting and respecting my language makes me a fascist, then hey i am guilty as charged and proud of it.
And the fools who gave him the title of “da melat baba”. Which melat are they talking about? Our melat? da Afghan melat? da Pakhtun melat? Yaw baba tsenga khpal da bachayo pa zheba na pohegee. Da kho daira ajeba khabera da che plaar/baba parso waye aw bachyan ye pakhtu.
There were some ppl who cried when they found out the King was dead. Razey che mong hum wozharo. Razey che wozharo da pakhtu pa haal. Razey che wozharo da pakhtu pa badbakhtee aw preshaanee. Razey che wozharo da pakhtu da bachyaano pa haal che dar pa dara khawri pa sar dee. Razey che wozharo da pakhtu da bachyaano pa haal che da zalimaano da laasa wazhal kegee. Razey che wozharo che da pakhtu nor hagha ghoror aw hagha sar lwartoob nishta…hagha che da Khushal Baba aw Ahmad Shah Baba pa wakht key wo.
