  1. Afghans must promote this type of things in international places and change its image..right now when anyone says Afghanistan first thing that comes in mind is Taliban,this image is very bad for Afghans….in 1980 jihad against Soviets the Afghans welcomed Arabs and others to help in fighting jihad so those people have become stakeholders and will not allow Afghans to be one they will look for their own interests…so stop allowing outsiders ever if you want peaceful and united Afghanistan
