Bloodshed and restrictions on human liberties demonstrate how unstable Taliban-run Afghanistan will

An aggressive Resistance Force is putting up a strong battle against the Taliban, while the Islamic State of Khorasan (Da'esh) is attacking both Taliban fighters and civilian targets. Draconian restrictions imposed on citizens, particularly women, by the ruling dictatorship haven't helped either.

Without anyone noticing, the Taliban invaded Kabul and seized control of the whole country of Afghanistan on August 15 of last year. The Taliban-ruled landlocked nation has been without peace and normalcy for more than a year. 2.0


Due to the regime's efforts to restrict civil liberties and its anti-women stance, Afghanistan remains mostly unstable, making it unlikely that it will ever receive international recognition.


Taliban & al Qaeda bonhomie


A ninja missile launched from a US reaper drone on August 1 shredded al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri to pieces at the home of Taliban interior minister Sirajuddin Haqqani. His murder in Kabul brought attention to the strong cooperation between al Qaeda and the Taliban, raising worries that terrorist organizations would be free to operate now that the Taliban are in power again.


Resistance Forces refuse to budge


Since the Taliban government took over Pakistan, the Resistance Forces have been vehemently opposing it. At least 110 Taliban fighters are said to have died in the July fighting, according to reports. Heavy fighting between the two troops has been seen in Bagram, Herat, Panjshir, Kunduz, and other places. The Taliban forces reportedly conducted house inspections on July 13 and threatened to kill any residents above the age of ten if they discovered any ties to the National Resistance Front.


Da'esh blood terror


The Taliban are challenged by terrorists from the Islamic State of Khorasan Province (Da'esh), in addition to the Resistance Force. Da'esh killed three Taliban militants and 25 civilians in July. The Da'esh Sharia Council issued a fatwa on July 26 to target non-Muslim and Shia sites of worship.


A bomb went off the following day close to Kabul's Karte Parwan Gurdwara. However, the attack did not result in any casualties. A month earlier, an ISKP attack on the same gurdwara claimed the lives of Taliban members and Sikhs.


Terrorists from the Islamic State of Khorasan Province (Da'esh) and the Resistance Force also pose a threat to the Taliban. In July, Da'esh killed 25 civilians in addition to three Taliban militants. On July 26, the Da'esh Sharia Council issued a fatwa designating non-Muslim and Shia places of worship as targets.


The next day, a bomb went detonated not far from Kabul's Karte Parwan Gurdwara. But there were no casualties from the strike. Taliban members and Sikhs were killed in an ISKP attack on the same gurdwara a month earlier.


Inter-Taliban rivalry


Violence has also increased significantly as a result of the conflicts within the Taliban. In a gunfight between Taliban members on July 7 in Kabul's Presidential Palace, 18 Taliban fighters lost their lives. In fights with Taliban fighters from Uzbekistan four days later in Takhar province, two Pashtun fighters were killed and four were hurt. On July 15, emotions rose at a conference in Panjshir presided over by the head of the Afghan army Qari Fasihuddin as several Badakhshani Taliban opposed the conflict continuing in Panjshir and Baghlan.


Curbs on civilian and women's rights


There have been tales of atrocities against civilians, especially women, ever since the Taliban retook power. Amnesty International published a study on the "suffocating crackdown" that Afghan women and children had to endure on July 27 under the title "Death in Slow Motion: Women and Girls under Taliban Rule." The research revealed an increase in early and forced child marriages, the imprisonment, torture, and disappearances of female protesters, as well as the arrest and detention of women for "moral corruption."


The Taliban had supported the measures, claiming that they were in keeping with both Afghan tradition and Islamic law.


Afghan Prime Minister Mullah Hassan Akhund defended rules for women and girls in Afghanistan while responding to a UN Human Rights Council resolution from July 8 urging the Taliban to end practices that restrict Afghan women's fundamental rights. He claimed that his government upheld human rights because they were "ordained by God" and that it could not dare to change them.


A report detailing the human rights situation in Afghanistan over the past 10 months following the Taliban takeover was published on July 20 by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan and was titled Human rights in Afghanistan: 15 August 2021 - 15 June 2022.


The report's main conclusions were as follows: 2,106 civilian casualties (700 killed, 1,406 wounded), mostly brought on by Da'esh-claimed improvised explosive device attacks and unexploded ordnance; 160 extrajudicial killings; 178 arbitrary arrests and detentions; 23 cases of incommunicado detention; and 56 instances of torture and other ill-treatment of former Afghan National Defence Security Forces and government officials by the de facto authorities.
