Afghan Buddha: The Taliban destroyed the historically and culturally important Buddhas of Bamiyan in 2001. Taliban now wants to earn money by opening the same empty places for tourists, because Taliban is in dire need of money. Recently an Italian sociologist and writer Massimo Introvigne wrote in his article in Bitter Winter. He wrote how he declined an offer to go to Afghanistan despite being an avid traveller.
Writer Massimo Introvigne does not want the Taliban to receive aid from the places they have destroyed. He said that the Afghan government is in dire need of cash. He cannot show the Bamiyan Buddhas because he blew them up. But it is offering to show the site by taking money from tourists.
Taliban blew up in 2001
According to the Italian author Massimo Introvigne, the Taliban in 2001 blasted the 6th century BC with the help of tanks and landmines. Broke the huge idols made in Now the public can see only those empty places where these unique works of Buddhist sculpture once stood.
The Taliban has offered tourists that they can also meditate by visiting those places. However, all these things will not be free. Tourists will have to pay for this. Author Massimo Introvigne has told all these things to Bitter Winter.
The author spoke about Adolf Hitler
Massimo Introvigne says he would pay to visit the Nazi Party’s Nuremberg propaganda headquarters and Khmer Rouge mass graves in Cambodia. All this money will not go to Adolf Hitler or Pol Pot, but to the present government after that. However, in the case of Afghanistan, the money for viewing Buddhist sites would go to the Taliban, who helped destroy the Bamiyan Buddhas.
