Something about season 6 Ustad Arman, Wajiha RastagarQaasim Ramishgar After incredible 5 seasons, Afghan Star started his sixth season. Bigger, brighter and more surprises along the way. Kabul auditions were completed with over 5.000 registrations. Judges for the sixth seasonare: Ustad Arman, Wajiha Rastagar and Qaasim Ramishgar. In the reality show Afghan Star between auditions the women´s rate is lower then 3%.
In my opinion… Afghan Star is a very little television show next to American Idol or X- Faktor, but in this country, where the war is run everyday, this is a very big thing for people who want to achieve their dreams. In this country men have big benefit in everything because women live under oppression. Women cant dance in public, cant show their faces in front of men.Unfortunately, this is a very obscurantist county. But this fact that they did a reality show in this country I think this is a very considerable thing. With this they were given a chance for all to make reality from dreams. There was an incident that one woman started to dance and showed her face. Everyone was indignant from this. They said –She did a very bad thing –We should cut off her throat also they disowned her from the city. When Lima Sarah won the fourth season millions of people were indignant.How it can be possible!? The biggest problem is the thinking of human. Thats why this country is at the place where it is.But at least they tried to do change. This is my opinion about Afghan Star.
