What will happen next in Afghanistan? WHAT WILL THE FUTURE OF MILLIONS OF INNOCENT CIVILIANS DURING THE TALIBAN’S RULE?
Today the whole world is shocked and horrified at the sudden invasion of the Taliban in Afghanistan in just a few days. Each and every country has kept silent on this matter. The situation in Afghanistan is continuously deteriorating. On August 15, the Taliban has captured the country including the capital city, Kabul. Taliban has already announced the end of the war in the president’s palace in Kabul.
This conflict has killed thousands and thousands of people and many were displayed. We are witnessing how people are desperate to flee from the country anyhow. The fear of the Taliban’s 1990’s rule can be seen in their eyes. On August 16, in this desperation and fear at Kabul airport hundred of people tried to forcibly enter the plane leaving Afghanistan’s capital. According to reports three men holding themselves on the wheel of the aircraft fell to death and also five got injured.
WHO ARE THE TALIBAN?
The Taliban, a fundamentalist Islamic force that ruled Afghanistan from 1996 until being trapped by U.S. forces in 2001, that they regrouped and were predominantly active in the southwest and Pakistan border areas
They enforced their own version of Islamic law as hard punishment. On Sunday, August 15, the Taliban won 20 years of the ongoing war.
Now the world is concerned about how the Taliban will govern the country with such hard Islamic laws.
WHAT IS THE STORY FROM THE BEGINNING??
1. It all started back in 2001, on 11th September 2001, Islamist militant al-Qaeda led my OSAMA BIN LADEN to conduct the largest terror attack 8n the US. Four airlines were hijacked. The Trade Center in New York was collapsed, and approx 3,000 people were killed.
2. Osama bin laden was under the protection of the Taliban in Afghanistan, who took power in 1996. They refused to hand over Osama to the US. In response and to Take revenge, on 7th October 2001 the US-led coalition bombed Taliban and al-Qaeda’s active centers in Kabul, Kandahar, and Jalalabad. Many militants including civilians were killed in this air bombing. The US removed the Taliban and vowed to support Afghanistan to make a democratic and terror-free country. All Taliban fled the country and were neutralized.
3. The new constitution was formed after the negotiation at a ‘loya jirga’. On 7th December 2004 Presidential election was done and HAMID KARZAI, the leader of the popular Durrani tribe, became the first president. He improved international relations and carried out many reforms for the development of Afghanistan.
4. In 2006, the Taliban emerged again, and in a conflict 450 British troops lose their lives in Afghanistan and 2009, 14000 troops were increased and they focused to protect civilians and kill insurgents.
5. On 2nd May 2011, Osama bin Laden was killed in Pakistan by the US. The founder of the Taliban Mullah Mohammed Omar died.
6. The US and Taliban signed a peace deal. On 29th February 2020 and decided to withdraw all trips within 14 days
7. Finally US president Joe Biden announced the withdrawal of US troops by 11th Sep 2021.
8. In just over a month Taliban captured the control all over Afghanistan. And Afghan security forces collapsed. Also, the whole ministry fled from the country.
9. Now the life of Afghanistan is in the hands of these Taliban.
WHAT WILL BE THE FUTURE OF THE AFGHANISTAN?
The main question the world wants to know is about how the group will govern the country and what will happen to human rights and especially women’s rights and freedom.
It is completely unclear how the Taliban actually wants to govern Afghanistan.
In the 1990s when they were in power they imposed very harsh laws and women were the worst sufferers.
Today women of Afghanistan want to raise her voice but due to the fear of Taliban, they are not coming out of their house. Women’s freedom to work, to dress as their choice, or even to go outside alone freely is in the hands of Taliban rule.
TERRORISM and militant activities might increase in the future and affect the whole world.
So the whole world needs to take a stand together and help Afghans civilians…
