Afghanistan is under the control of the radical armed group Taliban


Global New News Desk –

Afghanistan is under the control of the radical armed group Taliban. After two decades of violent fighting, Afghanistan is under the control of the radical armed group Taliban. The Taliban, a radical armed group in Afghanistan, lost power in the 2001 US-led invasion and was cornered. They took control of Kabul without bloodshed on Sunday. The whole of Afghanistan is now under their control. They also took control of the presidential palace in Kabul. The Taliban’s ability to seize power so quickly was unimaginable.




Meanwhile, the Taliban emerged in the second phase since 1996, with US President Joe Biden announcing a complete withdrawal of troops by September 11 and seizing one city after another in the last 100 days, most recently Kabul. The trillion-dollar US war in Afghanistan was also a shameful consequence. At the same time, the country’s liberals and ordinary Afghans are deeply concerned about the return of the Taliban’s reign of terror. People are fleeing from Kabul.



The capture of Kabul was a matter of time after the key Afghan city of Mazar-e-Sharif fell to the Taliban on Saturday night. The militants occupied Jalalabad yesterday morning and advanced towards Kabul. They surrounded Kabul from all sides. The Taliban leaders then began talks with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani about handing over power.

Finally, at noon, a Taliban delegation led by Mullah Abdul Gani Baradar, one of the top leaders of the Taliban, entered the President’s residence. There was a 45 minute meeting between them. U.S. diplomats were also present during the meeting with Taliban representatives. During the meeting, President Ghani resigned on the condition that he refrain from carrying out attacks and violence in Kabul.



Hours later, he fled the country with his associates to neighboring Tajikistan. Vice President Amrullah Saleh has also reportedly fled the country. Their departure also toppled the US-backed Afghan government.



Earlier, the country’s acting defense minister, Bismillah Mohammadi, said President Ghani had left the responsibility of resolving the crisis in the hands of the country’s politicians. A delegation is heading to Doha, the capital of Qatar, on Monday to discuss the future of the country with the Taliban.



In this situation, an interim government is being formed with Taliban leaders and moderate Afghan leaders. Ali Ahmed Jalali, the country’s former home minister (2003-2005) and currently teaching in the United States, could be the head of it. However, he did not doubt whether the Taliban would obey him. Acting Home Minister Abdul Sattar Mirzakwal said in a video message broadcast on Tolo TV that the process of “peaceful transfer of power” to an interim government was underway.



Afghanistan has a total of 34 provinces and 421 districts,

In this case, the name of the Taliban leader Baradar is being heard as the head of the interim government. This co-founder of the Taliban could be the next president of Afghanistan. He is serving as the head of the party’s political department. He led a Taliban delegation to Doha talks on lasting peace and a ceasefire in Afghanistan. Baradar, known as one of the most trusted commanders of the late Mullah Omar, was arrested in Pakistan in 2010 but was released in 2016. 



During the occupation of Kabul without any resistance, the Taliban sent a message to the Afghan government and the world community that they did not want to occupy Kabul by force. Yesterday, Taliban leader Baradar claimed that they did not want any bloodshed in Kabul. His words did not last in the end. Taliban spokesman Jabiullah Mujahid said shots were heard at various locations, including Kabul airport, at night after their fighters were allowed to enter the capital. At least 40 people were injured. There have been major clashes in the Karabak area of ​​the capital. The situation could take a turn now. Looting has started in different places. 



Afghanistan has a total of 34 provinces and 421 districts. The Taliban ruled most of the country before the US-led invasion in 2001. However, the US attack toppled the Taliban government. The Taliban, which has been out of power for 20 years, captured most of it in just a few days of violence until last Saturday. In most cases, Afghan forces failed to put up any resistance.

A long line of cars is formed on the road as people struggle to decide which way to leave the city. The banks are very busy. Because people have flocked to the banks to withdraw their savings.

Ayesha Khurram, a 22-year-old Afghan student who was uncertain about her life, told the Associated Press that they had been deceived by the United States. Leaving it to the Afghans to decide their fate.



According to a report in The Guardian, ordinary Afghans are worried about their wives and daughters as the Taliban return to power. One woman told Reuters she would commit suicide if the Taliban wanted to marry her. However, some women have been seen wearing the white flag, the color of the Taliban flag. In addition, members of the Afghan army and police have changed into military uniforms and taken off civilian clothes.




The presidential palace is also under Taliban control:

The Taliban say they also control the presidential palace in Kabul. President Ghani has claimed that the Taliban took control of Kabul shortly after he left Kabul for Tajikistan with close allies. However, the Taliban’s claim could not be verified.




A local journalist, Bilal Sarwari, spoke to two officials present at the Afghan government’s negotiations with the Taliban. They told Bilal that the agreement reached between the two sides was that the handover of power would take place at the presidential palace and that President Ghani himself would be present. But after he left Kabul with his senior associates, all the staff at the presidential palace were told to leave. The workers then evacuated the palace.




Foreign diplomats evacuated from Kabul: The United States hurriedly evacuated diplomats by helicopter yesterday as the Taliban seized Kabul faster than expected. Some other countries in Europe follow the same path. One helicopter after another is seen flying in the sky in the embassy area of ​​Kabul. Among them was a giant Chinook helicopter with two engines. There was also Black Hawk. One by one, they were landing at the Durgasam embassy in Wazir Akbar Khan district, carrying passengers to Kabul International Airport.

A U.S. official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the United States would not change its military strategy in Kabul unless the Taliban intervened. And the presence of the Taliban in Kabul is still not a cause for concern. As long as security is not disrupted, our activities will continue. Before the Taliban entered Kabul, US President Joe Biden said in a statement that if the Afghan military could not hold its own, there would be no difference in the US military presence in the country for another year or five.

The armed Taliban emerged in 1994, near the southern Afghan city of Kandahar. The word ‘Taleb’ in Pashto means student. And the plural of ‘Taliban’. Currently the term refers to the organization. Fighting broke out between several factions in Afghanistan after the withdrawal of Soviet troops and the fall of the government they supported, with the Taliban being one of them.




In the 1980s, a US-backed organization called the Afghan Mujahideen formed. They attracted many by fighting against the Soviet forces occupying power in Afghanistan. Within two years of its formation, the Taliban were able to establish control over much of Afghanistan, including the capital, Kabul. In 1996, they declared the Islamic Emirate in their occupied territories and introduced strict Sharia law. Other Mujahideen retreated to the north of the country.




Those forces in the north took control of Kabul in November after the September 11, 2001 attacks by al Qaeda in the United States. Taliban fighters then took refuge in various remote areas of Afghanistan; The 20-year-long war against the Afghan government and its Western allies began.






During their five years in power, the Taliban imposed strict Sharia law on their controlled areas of Afghanistan. Not only did women not have the opportunity to study or work, they could not go out of the house without a male guardian. Death or whipping in public was a daily occurrence. Western films and books banned. In the eyes of Islam, all the cultural patterns that  ‘haram’ also destroyed. After two decades, that barbaric regime has returned to Afghanistan.
