Most Trusted Man in Afghanistan Accepting Donations for Mudslide Victims

By Ralph Lopez - Posted on 08 May 2014

Dr. Ramazan Bashardost2009 Afghan presidential  candidate, scholar, and former Minister of Planning, is accepting donations for Afghan landslide victims.  Dr. Bashardost's history of outspoken criticism of corruption from all sides in Afghanistan, and his integrity beyond reproach, has earned him the title 'most honest man in Afghanistan.'  In an email to friends and supporters Dr. Bashardost has assured that 'every penny' of donations made to the designated account will reach the neediest victims directly.  

Dr.. Bashardost  resigned from his post in the Afghan government after his withering criticisms of non-governmental organizations in Afghanistan angered many powerful people in and around the Afghan government, who forced his resignation.

Dr. Bashardost is also a human rights activist, and has been nicknamed "the Gandhi of Afghanistan."

Hundreds are feared dead and thousands more displaced after last Friday's landslide in the remote north of Afghanistan.  Survivors have been warned against returning home because of the danger of more slides.
