Under the eyes of Buddha

1101 1

At Bamiyan, one of the poorest provinces in Afghanistan, a huge Buddha statue has been looking at the Valley and its residents for many centuries. In March 2001, the Taliban destroyed that Buddha completely. But even when there is just an empty niche left, the buddha lives on in the memory of the Hazaraz.

    No doubt, the statue was destroyed by Arab agents, brutal Taliban, deliberately to wash out Hazara culture and history…
