The Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan: A Welfare State?


  • Javeria Tahir Riphah Institute of Media Sciences


The State of Afghanistan has undergone a major shift with the departure of Us-led forces and the formation of the Taliban government. Afghanistan has rarely been subjected to peaceful means of power transition. The newly formed state of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan is to face challenges to construct an Islamic state.  Welfare states work for the stability and prosperity of their public. The concept of the welfare state started through Islam. The state formed by the Caliphs of Islam is an example of a welfare state.   Islamic State is based on the concept of public welfare. The Taliban government needs to apply the principles of an Islamic state to develop a welfare state of the Islamic Emirates of Afghanistan. The government needs to resolve the inner tribal conflicts, and illiteracy issues and to enlighten a way to convert their trodden and disjoint state into a welfare one.
