The Mujahideen were a Muslim Resistance Group in Afghanistan,
rebelling agaisnt the Marxist Government. When Nur Muhammed Taraki
was overthrown, the Kabul Government (in support of Marxism)
requested urgent help from Soviet Armed Forces. In retaliation, the
Soviets heartlessly invaded Afghani citizens and were fought by the
Mujahideen. The Mujahideen were supplied by the USA secretly
through Pakistan. It is now that people blame Pakistan for the
formation of the Mujahideen- where infact it was the Americans that
created the terrorist organisation Al Taliban.
The country of Afghanistan was invaded by the Soviet Union in 1979. The Mujahadeen fought to drive them out of the country.
