Where are the Jehovah's Witnesses in Afghanistan?

    Blue Mosque in Mazar-i-Sharif is the largest mosque in Afghanistan

    An estimated 99.7% of the Afghan population ( 40,218,234 ) is Muslim and most are thought to adhere to the Sunni Hanafi school. Afghan Christians, who number 500–8,000, practice their faith secretly due to intense societal opposition, and there are no public churches.

    Looks are there aren't many/if any. And if they do exist, they practice in secret. There isn't any Good News of the Kingdom being preached in Afghanistan. So what is the Watchtower's take on nations that never hear the good news? Isn't the Watchtower Society blood guilty due to them not preaching to these nations? And if God will resurrect all people who never had a chance to hear the good news, why preach to anyone?


    Revelation—What It Means for Your Future

    17 Who will benefit from these wonderful provisions? First of all, the great crowd of Armageddon survivors, along with any children who may be born in the new world. But Revelation chapter 20 also promises that the dead will be resurrected. (Read Revelation 20:11-13.) Faithful “righteous” ones who died in the past along with “unrighteous” ones​—who did not receive an adequate opportunity to learn about Jehovah—​will all come back to life here on the earth. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28, 29) Does this mean that everyone will be resurrected to life on earth during the Thousand Year Reign? No. Those who wickedly rejected the opportunity to serve Jehovah before their death will not be raised to life. They had their chance and proved that they were not worthy of life on the Paradise earth.​—Matt. 25:46; 2 Thess. 1:9; Rev. 17:8; 20:15.

    It was my understanding that jw's never go anywhere that traditional Christians have not already been. Would that be correct? I don't think they do Muslim countries at all do they?

    (not saying Christian missionaries have not been in Afghanistan but the thought of getting your head lopped off for apostasy would make one think twice before doing so).

    How about the Congo? or deep Amazon forest? Tibet? I would imagine there are many places that have never heard of jw's. Heck, people in the States don't even know what they believe including many jw's!

    Carla, my son-in-law’s brother-in-law was born and raised in Pakistan. His parents were Christian missionaries. In know, crazy, right. They live in Minnesota now.

    It is my belief that by far the majority of JW`s come from the poaching off Christendoms missionaries who have laid the groundwork in western lands. ?

    Lands such as those with big Catholic strongholds such as Spain Italy Portugal etc.

    Where they did make some inroads in non Christian lands such as Japan ,it was off the back of Christian missionaries who paved the way before them.

    The Jehovah`s Witness religion are parasites.
