On April 28th 1978, Afghanistan witnessed the Saur Revolution. The Saur Revolution was the name given to the communist coup d'etat launched against Afghanistan's first President: Sardar Muhammad Daud Khan, who was killed alongside 20 of his family members. The Saur Revolution inaugurated a dark period of Afghan history, plunging the country into a war from which it is yet to recover.
On the 43rd anniversary of the Saur Revolution, by popular demand, Ahmed-Waleed and Sangar dissect and evaluate Daud Khan. They discuss his early life, his education and the beginnings of his political career. They also examine his ideological convictions, including his nationalism and heavy emphasis on state-driven modernisation, all of which culminated in his bloody removal from power in the Saur Revolution.
