Taliban demands that drive Afghanistan to the 90s
At the height of tension between the Taliban, the government, and the United States, PMG News has now reached a climax, that the Afghan government sent a covert letter to the Taliban. As per the agreement signed between the United States and the Taliban, the Afghan government was planning to release 5,000 Taliban prisoners from Afghan prisons, and the Taliban and the government began a new round of talks with all political parties on the ground. But it seems that the Afghan peace process is now facing new deadlock; in the most recent case, the government has decided to set a new seven article precondition wish list for the release of these Taliban prisoners. The most major precondition of the Afghan government is that the Taliban must provide written and regular assurances that its fighters will not return to the battlefields after their release. Now the Taliban refused these prerequisites of the Afghan Government, and spokespeople for the group have tweeted that the requirements are not acceptable to their political leadership.
For countering the new request wish list of the government made a significant move using twitter, and they declined the preconditions of the Afghan government, were sent in a secret letter to the Taliban side. According to the Afghan government letter, these preconditions are assurance that guarantees peace in our land. Still, the latest reactions of the Taliban in refusing these conditions are now a significant question that undermines the Taliban’s peaceful well, as the group is even contemplating the creation of a Taliban system that was affected by the 2001 US invasion. The group lost its territory and power in Afghanistan. Based on the information provided by senior Afghan government officials, the Taliban are seeking to re-institutionalize the Taliban Sharia, based on which the country will stay afloat. Alongside it, the Taliban are trying to deprive all citizens of their rights, including women, children, youth, elders, The group, while striving to showcase a technocratic and reformed Taliban poses a backdrop. Sources among the Taliban believe that it is one of the critical goals of their self-proclaimed emirate. For this purpose, they had hold bloodshed for an extended period in the country. The group has also fought on different pretexts against the allies of Afghanistan over the past 18 years. Also Taliban well for cutting their ties with Pakistan’s ISI in such a way that they are not willing to cut a relationship with Islamabad and Rawalpindi at any cost shows that they are preparing for a new war in the country.
Meanwhile, it seems Taliban presence in Pakistani geography somehow has led this violent group to be ready for brainwash and to become a puppet of Pakistani intelligence, to recapture the land once again. Meanwhile, this strategy undermines the latest development of Afghans, and it indicates that with such move, the misfortunes of the ’80s and ’90s once again would be experienced in Afghanistan. But with the Taliban’s subsequent actions and the group’s stand-offs, the alarm seems to be ringing, and Afghanistan once again will be marginalized by its global allies. Once again, the Afghan government will defend and fight for its legitimate rights against the Taliban and its partners. Although the new generation of this land and independent defense by the Afghan military makes every citizen believe that defending the values and beliefs of all citizens will not be so difficult. However, there are ambiguities in the Taliban’s attitude and unjustified positioning. The group expresses the bitter reality that the group is never reconciled and strives to make the military option their first and last word.
There is no doubt that the Taliban’s perverse policies also reflect a lack of unity in the political leadership of the Afghan government. Still, the group has insisted that the battles will continue unless they would not reach political power and will never decide on the legitimate demands of the people, which will remove the challenges and groundwork for development. Now, how much internal political stalemate between the leaders on the one hand and Taliban-led standoffs, on the other hand, can save Afghanistan from the current crisis.
