UPDATE: GUEST DETAILS BELOW
The players in Afghanistan politics are setting about giving Hamid Karzai their opinion on how to make his second-term more stable and less corrupt than the first. But we’re going to leave the politicians to one side today, and talk to people who’ve suffered the unimaginable upset of losing a loved one in this conflict.
We’re inviting American, British and Canadian families, relatives of Afghan civilians killed by NATO, US or Taliban attacks, and, if it’s possible, families whose relatives have died fighting for the Taliban.
We’d like to hear what they want Hamid Karzai to do now, and if they feel their loved ones died in a conflict that’s worth fighting.
We’ll update the page as we know who’s taking part. Your questions and comments are welcome.
Here is a list of our guests.
Carol from the UK lost her son who was a soldier in Afghanistan.
Fawzia in Afghanistan says that she has experienced 30 years of death. She has lost her father, 4 brothers and husband. Now she is a MP for an independent party in Afghanistan.
Ruth lost her son on the very first night of major military operations in Afghanistan.
Mark, who was on the programme yesterday, was a former solider in Afghanistan and has seen his comrades die.
Naila is from Afghanistan but is now living in London. She will tell us stories of friends who she knows back home and their experience of loss.
