Today marks the 4th Anniversary since the martyrdom of the late President Rabbani on his 71st birthday on September 20, 2011.

President Rabbani and other martyrs of Afghanistan who lost their lives for the noble cause of freedom, independence, prosperity and the establishment of a broad-based and fully representative government in Afghanistan.
