The situation in Afghanistan is not just a matter of one country. The fire of Talibani terror in Afghanistan. Its heat will soon be felt by many countries of the world because till now it was being said that Taliban terrorists are very close to Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan. The Taliban have barricaded Kabul, but this is the first time the Taliban have launched a direct attack on the high security zone in Kabul. With this attack, the concern has now become bigger whether the countdown of Kabul has started and what will be the role of India in such a situation.
This is Ismail Khan, the elderly leader of Herat city of Afghanistan called ‘Lion’. They have vowed to selectively eliminate the Taliban terrorists and the Pakistanis who are helping them. Ismail Khan himself is also roaming in the city with AK-47 in his hand and increasing the confidence of the people. They say that this war is not between the Taliban and the Afghan government, but between Pakistani terrorists and Afghanistan. The fighters of India’s friend Ismail Khan and the Afghan army are stationed in the city of Herat and many times have forced Taliban terrorists to leave the battlefield and flee.
It is clear that not only the Afghan army is fighting the war against the brutal Taliban, but the common people are also taking the front in the field. The same thing happened right after the Kabul attack. When thousands of people took to the streets of the capital. First loud bang. Then the sound of sirens. Then another blast. Then the third blast. With these explosions, smoke spread in the sky of Kabul. Security forces reached the spot and heavy firing started. Soon, the high security green zone of Kabul became the Sherpur battleground.
Taliban militants attacked the house of Defense Minister Bislimalla Mohammadi. The car bomb exploded before the attack. Then the firing continued for a long time. During this several ambulances were seen leaving the area. The terrorists also targeted the house of Mohsin Azimi, an MP who opposed the Taliban. Many Taliban terrorists also entered Azimi’s house and started firing. 10 people were killed in these attacks, including many people from the MP’s house.
Although Defense Minister Bismillah Mohammadi and his family narrowly escaped the attack, the picture of devastation that emerged from the Defense Minister’s house is heart-wrenching. The pictures are proof of how horrific the Taliban attack was. .Every room of the Defense Minister’s house. every wall. There are signs of explosion on every window and door. In such a situation, the question is whether the Taliban are trying the 2001 strategy once again. Even before the last capture of Kabul 20 years ago, the Taliban carried out similar explosions in the capital. High security zone was targeted. In such a situation, what is to be believed that the Taliban capital is close to Fateh on Kabul and is it going to increase India’s concern. Time will give answers to these questions, but now the general public is giving answers to the Taliban terrorists along with the Afghan army.
Fearless people of Kabul took to the streets in large numbers
Immediately after the attack in Kabul, the fearless people of Afghanistan opened a front against the Taliban, who were creating terror. The fearless people of Kabul took to the streets in large numbers and showed solidarity by raising slogans of ‘Allah Hu Akbar’ against the Taliban. To encourage the people, Afghanistan’s Vice President Amrullah Saleh also took to the streets of Kabul and raised slogans against the Taliban. A similar view was seen in common Afghan homes as well. Women and children raised slogans of ‘Allah Hu Akbar’ from the balcony.
This influx of people gathered on the streets against the Taliban attack in Kabul became a historical moment. It became a moment of enthusiasm and nationalism that cannot be forgotten. This anger of the people against the terrorists was also visible in the city of Herat. Here a large number of people took to the streets and raised slogans fiercely. Thousands of people stood on the roofs of their homes and raised their voice in support of the Afghan army. Even small innocent children were not left behind in this. Whether elder or elderly, women or children, there was fierce anger against the Terror Army in Afghanistan. Even the handicapped were seen walking with the people. Surely this anger can be gauged how much Taliban terrorists are committing the massacre. The life of the common people is comfortable. Therefore, now the public has taken a front against terror.
The Afghan force has also given strength to stop the Taliban in Afghanistan. 375 Taliban terrorists have been killed in air strikes in the last 24 hours
And more than 193 have been injured. The Afghan Air Force has targeted Taliban positions in Nuristan, Logar, Kandahar, Herat, Helmand, Kapisa. Although the Taliban has so far captured 223 districts in Afghanistan, while there is a fierce battle between the army and the terrorists for the capture of 168 districts. Now only 68 districts are left under the control of the Afghan government.
In this hour of worry, Afghanistan has remembered India. To garner international support against the Taliban, Afghan Foreign Minister Mohammad Hanif spoke to Indian Foreign Minister Jaishankar over the phone. And to stop the growing supremacy of the Taliban, has demanded to convene an emergency session of the UNSC. India has also assured cooperation for peace and stability in Afghanistan because the countdown of Kabul is a big concern for India. Now the question is what is India’s preparation when Kabul’s countdown is going on. To understand this, the Indian government’s stand on Afghanistan has to be understood.
Many challenges for India in Afghanistan
India is taking a very cautious step forward regarding the ongoing power struggle between the Taliban and the government in Afghanistan. India has made it clear that it is not going to get the support of the world community if the Taliban is able to capture the power of Kabul with the help of power. India believes that in the interest of the people of Afghanistan, a permanent solution will have to be found through peaceful dialogue. This is the reason why Afghanistan has demanded a discussion on the situation in the country under the leadership of India, which is chairing the UN Security Council.
In such a situation, there are many challenges for India in Afghanistan. The biggest problem is what stand India should take regarding the Taliban. Experts say that in view of the increasing role of Taliban in Kabul in future, India will have to go with a new approach. This is the reason that in the past, the Foreign Minister of India also visited Iran, Russia and the Middle East. This has also been discussed in detail during the visit of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken to India. Once again, the Foreign Minister is going to discuss this by attending the swearing-in of the new President in Tehran tomorrow. India has not only invested 20 thousand crores in Afghanistan but has also built very strong relations in two decades, but now the situation is changing. With the Pakistan-controlled Taliban moving towards Kabul, India needs to think afresh. So that the interest of India is protected. And the Taliban should not become a threat to India.
