    Seven Deadly Sins



    When the Pushtun teen pointed and sniffed at the flat-nose Hazara:”Afghanistan is the land of the Pushtuns, like

    a conqueror, nose up in the air, I saw Lucifer’ pride---“love of

    self perverted to hatred and contempt for one's neighbor” or in

    other words, “holding self out of proper position toward God or fellows. When mere cash was enshrined and became the

    laissez-passer instead of mercy or humanity, I saw Mammons

    greed---an inordinate desire to acquire or possess more than one needs. When the Russian soldier was leering at the woman, who was already the wife of the man sitting nervously beside her and the mother of a newly born baby sleeping sound in her arms, and then dared to decide by himself to have sex with her, I saw Asmodeus’s lust---“like winds symbolic of their own lack of self control to their lustful passions in earthly life”. When the

    adulterous woman, her hands tied firmly behind and a veil covering her fearful face, faced all the sharp stones hurled by her raging compatriots and then died, blood soaking her garment, I saw Samaels wrath---“love of justice perverted to

    revenge and spite. When Amir framed Hassan, through which

    he succeeded in getting rid of him and finally enjoyed the complete love of his father, I saw Leviathan’s envy---“Love of

    one's own good perverted to a desire to deprive other men of theirs”. When the warlord squandered the materials plundered from the most poor, I saw Berials sloth---a failure to utilize

    one's talents and gifts. When the invaders trampled on the land not belonging to them and slaughtered the people not ever connected with them, I saw Beelzebub’s gluttony---to swallow

    and destroy everything you can see and touch!
