About Liberation Day
Liberation day falls on 26th day of the month of Dalwo and is celebrated on 15th Feb every year. It is the celebration of the date of the exit of the last Soviet soldier from Afghanistan in 1989 and was declared a holiday in 2005 and became effective from 2007. On May 1 1978, Nur Mohammad Taraki took control of Afghanistan with a coup and renamed the country to the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan and by 1979, U.S. President Jimmy Carter started to fund the forces in Afghanistan against the pro-Soviet government. On December 24, 1979, the Soviets citing the 1978 Treaty of Friendship, decided to send 100,000 troops into Afghanistan and the initial Soviet deployment of the 40th army in Afghanistan began on December 24, 1979 under the leadership of Soviet President Leonid Brezhnev. After 9 years of conflict the final troop withdrawal started on May 15, 1988, and it ended on February 15, 1989. This day is celebrated as a political holiday, with political speeches from the president and government transmitted nationally on televisions to boost national pride and also as a religious holiday since the end of the Soviet occupation ended the secular ideas from the Marxist government. People attend religious services in mosques and celebrate the Mujahedeen victory against the powerful army of the Soviet Union.
