Open Jirga - BBC Launches Afghanistan Debate

Recorded in Dari and Pashto, Open Jirga (jirga means ‘assembly’ in Afghan languages) has a broad reach. The show provides people from across Afghanistan’s diverse communities with a platform to share their opinions with national leaders on the country’s future.“Afghanistan is undergoing major transitions linked to the drawdown of international forces and the presidential elections in 2014,” says Lutfullah Latif, editor of the BBC’s service for Afghanistan. “Audiences have a lot of questions to ask, and this series of debate shows will provide an opportunity to air their views, hopes and fears.” LINK
