Yasmina Khadra did not mince words to describe the situation in Algeria. The Algerian writer spoke about the fires in Kabylia and criticized the management of the Algerian state, which, according to him, favors “Intimidation, denial and outrage”.
Yasmina Khadra fires live ammunition. The famous Algerian writer looked at the management of the Algerian state following the deadly fires in Kabylia two weeks ago and did not fail to point out the flaws in the system.
These fires of worrying magnitude seized this Kabyle region on August 9, which is known to have been one of the chief towns of Hirak. According to testimonies on the spot, around a hundred fires broke out at the same time in the forests of the Wilaya, so that several Internet users have asked themselves questions.
Questions to which Yasmina Khadra was kind enough to answer in an interview given to the site “Liberté Algeria”, in which he accuses the leaders of the neighboring country of using methods of intimidation, and inviting them “To moderate their words” and “To review their copy”.
“The state should review its copy, moderate its remarks and outlaw hasty threats against our people that it is difficult to understand. Things are clear, the claims are legitimate, but in response, the state favors intimidation, denial and indignation ”, considers the writer.
“These unfortunate posturing betray the unbearable reality of Algerian politics. The situation our country is going through requires maximum listening and consistency. Our nation is full of scientists, brains, brave people, real potential at all levels. But who wants it? Anybody “, he continues.
In this sense, the author of “What the day owes to the night”, calls on the government of his country to show more wisdom and a minimum of common sense.
“We are witnessing tinkering, botched castings, ubiquitous decisions (…) The State does not do much to relieve the overflow of exasperation. We do not make a feast with reheated. On the contrary, there is a risk of indigestion and fatal gastroenteritis. More than ever, leaders need to show more wisdom. If this is too much to ask of them, let them show a minimum of common sense. Time waits for no one ”, he concluded.
