A burning news in today’s media you definitely have heard in that Taliban has taken over Afghanistan, which leads to the diaspora of people. A havoc condition is seen in the country after the insurgent took over. Why are people so much feared and why they are ready to give their life in order to leave their own country. So let’s understand first 

Who are the Taliban?

Taliban refers to itself as the Islamic emirate of Afghanistan, is a Deobandi islamist movement and military organization, The idea of Taliban came in 1994 and largely consisted of students from the pashtun areas of eastern and southern Afghanistan, they were taught in traditional Islamic schools, form 1996 to 2001 , the Taliban held over three quarters of Afghanistan, during their rules the Taliban and allies committed massacres against Afghan civilians, they banned activities and media including paintings, they banned girl child from education, stopped women from doing jobs, male doctors were restricted from treating a women, if women broke certain rule they were publicly whipped or executed, religious and ethnic minorities were heavily discriminated against during their rule, according to united nation the Taliban and their allies were responsible for 76% of Afghan civilian casualties in 2010 and 80 % in 2012, they were also involved in cultural genocide destroying numerous monuments including the famous 1500 years old BUDDHA BAMIYAN. The Taliban’s ideology has been described as combining an “innovative” form of sharia Islamic law based on Deobandi fundamentalism and militant Islamic combined.

And now as the American soldiers left the Afghanistan the insurgents taken over the country despite they were only 70,000 in numbers and afghan soldiers were 3 lakhs in number with advanced weapon still they left the war and as the americi soldiers left the country they surrendered and in many provinces they given the control without any bullet and as the president left the country they taken over the Kabul and now they are going to be the government.

Due to their past history people are worried and who might have spoken before against them they are more worried because they somehow know that they are going to treated very badly as the Taliban has taken over the government and there is no army or any soldiers left to protect them hence they are trying to leave the country, this has created a hearth wrenching situation in Afghanistan Kabul, but Taliban leaders are saying that there will be no such behavior and all the women and minorities will be given their rights and they are looking very calm as there is no any news of civilians killed as of now, but still no one knows what will happen and people are very much frightened. They are saying they will sustain the law and order.

Now we should know what will be the impact of this government change in India?

As afghani government and many officials have confirmed that Pakistan has backed Taliban many times and supported them so from Indian point of view it will be perilous because it may increase the terrorism in Kashmir area but they are saying that they will not do such things, but India should be at alert and watch the situations carefully, also India’s so many projects are running in Afghanistan so if they don’t cooperate with us it will be a big loss for India.

But till now nothing can be said before their government declaration and Indian officials would be already thinking about the condition.
