The Taliban, with a dangerous customs policy, has again captured Afghanistan. The memories of the Taliban’s rule between 1996 and 2001 are fresh in the minds of the people there. People did not have freedom then. The fear of Taliban terrorists was so much that people from other countries were hesitant to reach Afghanistan.
This is the reason that when the Taliban captured the capital Kabul as well, people broke down at the airport. On Monday, people sat on the tires of the flying US Air Force plane. Three people died after falling from the sky.
Do you know what was it like in the previous Taliban rule, remembering that the people there do not want to take the risk this time and want to leave the country?
