Afghan children deprived of access to food and wate

A Hindu sadhu sits besides a holy trishul.

From the brutal second wave of the pandemic to the oppressive acts of the Taliban regime, Indians and fellow Hindus have suffered a lot in this tumultuous year. To add more suffering to the Hindu's, a bunch of so-called liberals, social activists, researchers, university professors, etc. have organized an international conference against the Hindu community.

" Dismantling Globa Hindutva " as the conference is named, is a virtual congregation of anti-national, anti-Hindu, anti-semitic, pro-Jihadi elements. The organizers who remain staunch on staying anonymous have stated that the conference aims at scrutinizing what Hindutva is, says and does with regard to a wide range of topics, from caste to political economy, to gender and sexuality, and more.

Stop Killing Afghan Protest in London.

Soon after the capture of Kabul by the Taliban the radical outfit announced that the regime in Afghanistan would be based on Shariat leaving no one in doubt about the return of the Emirate of 1996. This comeback was happening through a sure and steady process marked by some tactical statements from the Taliban, hastily interpreted in many quarters as signs of political maturity, about the safety of foreign nationals, amnesty of the government employees who served the Ashraf Ghani dispensation and an assurance to the international community that Afghan soil would not be used to launch any covert offensive against any other nation.

Having achieved its mission of taking charge of the country in quick time, the Taliban held its hands at the Kabul International Airport only to see the completion of the evacuation of US and NATO personnel -- it showed its true colours by clamping down on the exit of Afghan nationals from the country. Its leaders, meanwhile, were initiating moves to give shape to the future government.
Taliban has expectantly firmed up its grid with Pakistan and China already and is beginning to repressively handle the domestic scene where significant changes had occurred over the two decades since its ouster from power in 2001, mainly by way of the rise of a new Afghan generation of men and women who had tasted freedom, entrepreneurship and international exposure. The desertion of Afghanistan by President Ghani and the bulk of Afghan national security leadership in the face of the rapid advance of Taliban insurgents, has shown the reality of the intrinsic hold of Islamic radicals on the country, backed so explicitly by Pakistan establishment and the ISI-sponsored militant outfits like Jaish-e-Mohammad and Haqqani network. For both the US and India, the two largest democracies, a Taliban-dominated Afghanistan poses a long-term threat but apparently for the Biden administration dealing with China as the rising superpower is taking precedence over the slide of Afghanistan back into the hands of Islamic radicals.
