The problem in Afghanistan and elsewhere is that the predominant religion of the area is based on absolute ignorance of God or religious terrorism which is an oxymoron and self contradictory. The correct understanding of the problem in cultures plagued
by religious violence and terror is to educate the people that real religion always gives life not destroy it. Real religion always gives freedom of religion not tyranny, totalitarianism, and terrorism. That so-called religion which is based on death aka
"holy war" is actually a deception and illusion of the dark side of the material world. It is not spiritual but a falsehood of irreligion masquerading as religion.
