“Now let me talk about a third matter which is a consequence of the collapse of the communist world. At the time of communism the practices of the faith was not encouraged, it was actively dissuaded.” (Mawlana Hazar Imam: Surat, 10th Nov., 1992)
“The third consequence of the collapse of the communist world is a number of newly independent countries, in some of which a jamat is there. There we have a jamat in Afghanistan, we have a jamat in Tajikistan, and we have a jamat in other countries which after fifty years of imprisonment in a dogma are finding their independence.”
