Taliban wants to occupy Afghanistan and establish a hardline Islamic government there and implement Sharia law there.
At this time in Afghanistan, a dreadful game of death is going on everywhere. Taliban terrorists have surrounded Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. Meanwhile, a Taliban spokesman has said that they do not want to forcefully capture Kabul.
The Taliban also captured the eastern city of Jalalabad on Sunday. Apart from this, the city of Asadabad, the capital of Kunar province and the capital of Paktika province, has also been occupied by Taliban militants.
The Afghan army is also trying its best to keep Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan, away from the clutches of the Taliban. The responsibility of keeping Kabul safe has been given to the chief of the Afghan Special Forces, General Sami Saadat. General Sami Saadat is only 36 years old and he has mastered strategizing the terrorists.
However, for how long the Afghan army can keep the Taliban away from Kabul, there is still doubt because, in most of the provinces that the Taliban have captured, the Afghan army has laid down arms in front of the Taliban without fighting.
The biggest example of the speed at which the Taliban is occupying Afghanistan is the Taliban’s control of Mazar-e-Sharif, the capital of Afghanistan’s Balkh province and Afghanistan’s fourth-largest city. It took the Taliban only a few hours to capture the city of Mazar-e-Sharif, the economic center of Afghanistan.
After the Taliban’s capture of Mazar-e-Sharif, pictures of the governor of Balkh to the Afghan army and many top government officials reaching the border of Uzbekistan to save their lives also appeared. However, it is not yet officially clear whether the governor of Balkh province, Ata Noor, will himself seek refuge in Uzbekistan or go elsewhere to save his life after the Taliban capture Mazar-e-Sharif, the capital of Balkh province.
On Saturday, the Taliban announced that it had captured the cities of Mazar-e-Sharif and Maimana in the northern region, Gardez and Mehtarlam in the eastern part of the country. The Taliban have so far captured the capitals of more than 20 provinces since fighting intensified in May.
Amid reports of Taliban fighters entering Kabul, the Taliban has officially announced that Taliban fighters will remain at the gates of Kabul city for the time being and will not enter the city of Kabul until the transfer of power in Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, America has also started the process of evacuating American employees from its embassy located in Kabul. According to pictures coming from Kabul, the US has sent military Chinook helicopters to its embassy in Kabul with the goal of speeding the evacuation of the embassy staff from Afghanistan.
Talking about India, on August 10, the Indian High Commission had appealed to its citizens living in Afghanistan to leave Afghanistan and return to India as soon as possible, so that the security of Indians should not be affected. Along with this, the Indian High Commission in Afghanistan is also continuously helping Indians in their safe return from Afghanistan.
