Terrorist Awghan Taliban together with the occupying terrorist western basterds killed this distinguished Tajik journalist and interpreter.
His untimely and tragic death is a poignant reminder that Tajik nation is the first to suffer and is sacrificing the most.
Sultan Munadi was a true Tajik from the highest peaks of Hindu Kush Mountains, from Aastaana of Panjsher Valley.
In life he touched all those he met and in his death he has left all those who have known him in deep sorrow and mourning and they feel privileged to have met him.
Sultan Munadi...rest in peace...you're in our thoughts...

Hell, no, I’ll never leave Khorassan permanently
I grew up in the Panjshir Valley, in a place that is a three-hour walk from the nearest road. We don’t have a lot of iron there, we don’t have concrete, we don’t have these artificial things. It’s a completely natural place.
When I went to Germany to study for a master’s degree in public policy I saw concrete everywhere, a lot of glass, asphalt and artificial things. It was depressing, very boring for me. I was dreaming of the dust, I was dreaming of nature in my country, of the mountains. It’s really nice to be back for a while, it’s very hard to be away for two years.
If I were a teenager, it would be easier to be integrated into the society in Germany, but now at the age of 34, it is difficult to be away from my country. I would not leave Khorassan. I have passed the very darkest times of my country, when there was war and insecurity. I was maybe four or five years old when we went from my village into the mountains and the caves to hide, because the Soviets were bombing.
Now I am hopeful of a better situation. And if I leave this country, if other people like me leave this country, who will come to Khorassan? Will it be the Taleban who come to govern this country? That is why I want to come back, even if it means cleaning the streets of Kabul.
Being a journalist is not enough; it will not solve the problems of Khorassan. I want to work for the education of the country, because the majority of people are illiterate. That is the main problem facing many of Khorassanis. I am really committed to come back and work for my country.
