Astronism in Afghanistan

Astro-Afghan philosophy, also known as Afghan Astronism, refers to the presence of Astronism in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan under management and philosophical jurisdiction of The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, a national subsidiary for the worldwide Astronist Institution. 

 

The Institution of The Philosophy of Millettism for the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan is set to oversee the construction and maintenance of observatories and planetariums throughout its jurisdiction. Afghanistan is plit into thirty-four provinces and is set to hold one Grand Observatory in the capital city of Kabul. 

 

There are few Astronists in this overwhemingly Muslim country and freedom of religion for Astronists has been difficult to obtain, particularly due to the continued influence of the remnants of the Taliban regime and other forms of Islamic fundamentalism. 

 

History of Astronism in Afghanistan

Astronism currently has no official presence in Afghanistan and neither is it recognised by the Afghan government. For this reason, there are no official statistics on the number of Astronists in Afghanistan, but estimates have placed the number at around 100 people. 

 

Currently, Astronism exists in Afghanistan only as a digital religion as there are no physical buildings representing the faith. The Omnidoxy, the founding book of Astronism, is yet to be officially translated into Pashto and Dari, the two most widely spoken languages in the country. 

 

The main representative of Astronism is Cometan and it is currently only his presence on search engines and social media platforms as well as the presence of publishers like Astronism.org and their respective websites that act as ways for Afghans to learn about the Astronist religion.
