AFCECO children once again celebrated the national Independence Day on the occasion of Afghanistan’s 95thanniversary of Independence.
Afghanistan took its independence on the 19th August in 1919 from the colonial Britain in the third Anglo-Afghan war. The independence war was commanded by the progressive King Amanullah Khan. At the very beginning of his rule his priority was to take the independence as he believed that existence of a democratic society was impossible without being independent. During his ten year regnum along with his progressive supporters Afghanistan was going through development process and many reforms were implemented. The most important of the reforms were as: the first constitution in the region, abolishing slavery, and sending girls abroad for higher education, abolishing compulsory “hijab”, and abolishing polygamy at least for government officials, making primary education compulsory for all. Queen Suraya, King Amanullah Khan’s wife, was of course one of his closest colleagues.
