Withdrawal Of US Troops From Afghanistan- A Threat To World?


Taliban has started taking over cities and districts in Afghanistan ever since the US decided to withdraw its troops from the country. There is a lot of unrest in the country. Several attacks have taken place and there is continuous combat between the Afghan forces and the Taliban groups.

Due to this human loss and infrastructure loss have substantially increased in the country. However, This issue is now not just limited to Afghanistan, the Taliban, and the US. The situation there is having a huge impact in different parts of the world in different ways. Unfortunately, this impact is not healthy for any country.

Taliban in its attempt to expand its base has conquered large fractions of rural areas and pivotal border crossings in the country. And their attempts are rapidly increasing with each passing day. With the Taliban being obstinate on its various demands like forming an Islamic Emirate and dismiss human rights, it is clear that they will not stop the unrest unless their demands are fulfilled or and the pragmatic way is found to stabilize the situation.

Various terrorist organizations like Lashkar e Taiba, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, Jamaat-ul-Arhar, Lashkar-e-Islam, Jaish e Mohammad are hitherto supporting the Taliban in Afghanistan. This has raised concerns for India as well. In addition, the Afghan Taliban has persisting ties with Al-Qaida.

The war-like situation in Afghanistan has already destabilized its neighboring countries like Pakistan, Iran, Tajikistan, and Turkmenistan. The rise of the Taliban will eventually result in the increase of terrorist activities in Afghanistan there will be control over them. As per the international reports, some of the terrorists from Pakistan have found shelter in Afghanistan. Thus, if the Taliban completely takes over the control of Afghanistan then in no time it will become a hub for various terrorist organizations.

The most effect of the situation in Afghanistan will be on Asia. There is also a possibility that the number of terrorist organizations also increase as they will be getting easy access to weapons, other equipment, and training. These will result in the expansion of religious extremism. This may also lead to a rise in transborder crimes and human and drug trafficking.

Afghanistan forces, on the other hand, have given a call for pressure from the international forces. This evidently explains that Afghanistan needs the help of foreign forces to handle the situation. How worse impact Afghanistan will have when US troops will be completely withdrawn from the country. There is a possibility of a full-fledged civil war in Afghanistan once all foreign troops are withdrawn and that is going to happen soon.

Many scholars are of the opinion that the US and NATO took the decision of withdrawal in haste. They left the people of Afghanistan at the mercy of the Taliban and in current mercy is nowhere to be seen and thus it is said that the US failed to live up to its policy with Afghanistan. The worsening situation in Afghanistan has struck the alarms that the country might be used for conspiring attacks across the globe.
