The Situation In Afghanistan So Far Under Taliban Rule


Taliban took over the control of Afghanistan two days ago. Then-president of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani fled the country and citizens were left in a mayhem situation. Immediately every country around the world started preparing evacuation plans to get their citizens out of Afghanistan. Indian nationals were also brought back to India safe and soundly. But the circumstances there were drastic. People were seen running after the planes and huge crowds thronged the airport. In this chaos, many people lost their lives.

On the other hand, the Taliban started making announcements saying people should not be afraid of them. They do not have to flee. They also assured and Sikhs and Hindus that they will not have to face any trouble from the Taliban. Delegations of the Taliban also made a statement that women too will be given all the rights that comes under Islam’s framework. And to portray that they are being modest one of the Taliban leaders also gave an interview to a female journalist.

However, there is a BUT in all of these. Because even if the display situation seems to be all is well in reality all is not at all well. There are reports of women being harassed. Women are scared there. Men were punished by shaving and making them bald by the Talibanis forcefully. Firing gunshots is becoming unusual Normal. Thus there is a huge gap and difference in what is being said by the top delegates of the Taliban and the ground level Talibanis.

Taking a look at the world’s perspective countries like Turkey, China, Pakistan has shown positive signs of the Taliban’s regime in Afghanistan. While America is firm on its decision despite facing criticism globally bout shirking its responsibility for citizens of Afghanistan. India has not yet taken any stand on this issue. But India needs to do it soon as India has a lot of projects in Afghanistan.

About the Administration in Afghanistan, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, the co-founder and deputy leader of the Taliban, is possibly to be the next president of Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Taliban commander and senior leader of the Haqqani Network terrorist group, Anas Haqqani, has met former Afghan President Hamid Karzai for talks, said a Taliban official.

There is strong criticism of the United Nations from across the globe there is no strict action of what has happened or happening in Afghanistan. There is a sentiment of fear globally that terrorist activities will increase stupendously and especially in southeast Asia.
