    Read this, u will understand what Taliban is and what we know about them. Yvonne Ridley is a British Journalist. She was captured by the Taliban in Afghanistan on 28 September 2001, and held for 11 days, while working for the Sunday Express.in the days before the beginning of the US-led invasion of Afghanistan, after being refused an entrance visa, she decided to follow the example of BBC reporter John Simpson, who had crossed the border anonymously in a burqa. She said in her book, In the Hands of the Taliban, that, while she was in captivity, she was treated with respect by the men of the Taliban and was, subsequently, amazed by their courtesy. All men that she came in contact with lowered their gazes (to her), which left her bewildered. She had initially thought they had already decided to have her executed and therefore could not look her in the eyes. Only later did she discover they were showing her a sign of respect. While in captivity she gave an undertaking to read the Qur'an and study Islam if they let her go. Fulfilling the promise and setting out on what she described as "an academic exercise" she said she was shocked to discover "the Quran makes it clear that women are equal in spirituality, worth, and education. What everyone forgets is that Islam is perfect; people are not." She converted to Islam in the middle of 2003, claiming that her new faith has helped put behind her broken marriages and embrace "the biggest and the best family in the world."

    May Allah increased them in strenght and in wisdom and make them successfull in managing their own country. They are more deserving to take their own country rather than being taken forever by a foreign nations and manage by their puppet government administrators... Afghanistan is for Afghan People. Let them rule and manage their own country and let the foreign nations stay away from them otherwise give support without self serving pre-conditions. I am a Pakistani Muslim and I Love Afghani People for Allah's sake. My heart longs for their success in their government affairs.

    You call it radical so you are already spreading terrorism. Before pointing without having pure knowledge about any religion you should get to know it first indeed otherwise you are the one who is raising the terrorism.

    There was a reason USSR was fighting radical religious rebels because the democratic socialist government which was formed by the non radicalised people wanted to get rid of these people. And USA in the pretext of cold war started channeling money to Pakistan which created Mujaheeds and they were used both in Afgan and Kashmir front.

    People killing their own people..religion is and always will be the beginning of all war. Afghanistan is now truly an epicentre of hatred. My heart goes out to all the innocent children and women and men who had to and are going through such violence and pain. Let there be peace and light in their heart and mind to fight the chaos in their life 🙏 😞
