Sohail Pardis for a year he had worked as an interpreter for the Americans. Pardis was beheaded. “He was driving happily in his pick-up from Kabul to Khost to reach his family. Around him everything was already rarefying, withering, falling to shreds: Americans in retreat, the killers of Allah advancing, columns of tremors on the run, the rich comfortable on the plane, the poor people by all means to the borders. He had received threats, the Taliban had warned him: we know that you worked for the Americans, you are a spy and a traitor of Islam. We are coming, we will exterminate you and your family “, writes the Press.
There were no witnesses when the Taliban checkpoint came out of nowhere. They brought him down. They beheaded him. The brother and his family hastily left their home, they went into hiding. “Perhaps it will not be enough when the Americans will soon be gone, even the few left. And between them, the collaborators, and death there will be only the useless gap of the Afghan army. The savonarola of Islam, the winners, will begin to leaf through the lists in which they meticulously recorded the names of the traitors “, reveals La Stampa.
“To the tens of thousands of Afghans (over 35 thousand) who worked for the US army or for the allies, sentenced to death awaiting execution, Washington promises, studies complex visa practice, asks for documents, proposes unlikely exiles. The remaining time flows inexorably. Patient Taliban advance and raise checkpoints, delete the first names from long lists “, concludes La Stampa.
