Post via Islamic Emirate February 26th 2018
More than 17 years ago the only Islamic government in the world (Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan) was brought down by American invaders with the support of more than 50 coalition members. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan tactically retreated back in 2001 to start guerrilla warfare in order to drain the American invaders, the results of which are clearly visible after decade and a half of war.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan was formed as the country was in turmoil where warlords running militias were killing and looting the common people and atrocities and war crimes were performed on a massive scale all over Afghanistan. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan was a movement to free the common people from oppression and to ensure their rights. The country was lingering and the people were barely surviving after the expulsion of the Russian invaders. People had high hopes after the Russian invaders withdrew but some foreign stooges sold the hopes of the common Afghan people and the country was on the brink of dissolving.
Taliban removed corruption from the land of Afghanistan and established a pure Islamic system of governance. The warlords were arrested, the lawlessness ended and the basic rights of common Afghan Muslims were ensured.
From the beginning of the establishment of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, it was thorn in the throat of the American oppressors and cruel rulers of the west. There were many sanctions imposed on the Taliban government to cripple the economy and a mass scale media propaganda was in full swing.
Despite these hurdles the common people of Afghanistan were enjoying their lives in an atmosphere of peace and they had high hopes of prosperity. There were no areas left where the Islamic Emirate hadn’t implemented the Islamic law.
After the tactical retreat of the forces of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the invaders set up their puppet regime under Karzai. Warlords came back into power, documented criminals and human rights abusers were appointed high posts in the government. Afghanistan made records in opium productions during this period and continuous to do so until today. People are sick of corruption and intimidation by the powerful elite of the government. Afghanistan is holds the dishonor of the most corrupt countries. Despite the influx of billions of American dollars, the country is reeling in poverty and the rates of unemployment are sky high.
Democracy has only brought misery and suffering to the people of Afghanistan. There is no cheap justice for the poor, in fact even government officials are crying for help. There is a rebellion by the former supporters of the puppet president Ashraf Ghani.
This leaves us with a question as to why there again arises a need for Taliban in Afghanistan?
The reasons are many, let’s shed light on some important issues. Those areas under the control of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has peace. According to the statistical figures almost 50% of the country is under the direct control or very strong influence of the forces of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. There is no corruption in those parts, schools are running smoothly, justice is delivered quickly to people and the common people now approach the Islamic Emirate to solve their disputes more than ever. There are no private militias of warlords in those areas, there is no corruption in parts of Afghanistan under the control of the forces of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. Taliban have started welfare works and even cash and food supplies are delivered to the needy and poor. Small scale developmental projects have also been launched by the Taliban.
In contrast people are sick from the intimidation of the US invaders and the corrupt regime rulers. They are tired of the lawlessness and corruption. There is not even a single step taken to improve the situation in the capital Kabul itself. Everyday there are thefts, kidnappings and the society has become a so poisonous that many people living under the government control areas are leaving the country. The social injustice has reached new heights. The racism and intolerance within the regime has caused deep fractures in the Afghan society.
Ashraf Ghani has become the mayor of Kabul as his power has been reduced by the warlords. He has to rely on Americans and has to do whatever they say while the same warlords are then in turn supported by the Americans and are funded by the US embassy.
The above arguments and reasons have compelled the common people to ask for the return of the Taliban. The only legitimate rulers can be Taliban in Afghanistan because they are what the people want. These facts are presented in several research and analysis even by western pundits. The imposed democracy on the Afghan Nation has failed and the result are visible to the whole world. This cements the fact as to why there is again arises a need for the Taliban in Afghanistan.
