Reorganization of the Taliban: A danger for world peace
After the terrorist attack of 9\11 on America, the very first terrorist network decided to be damaged by America was the then ruling Taliban network in Afghanistan and its associate's terrorist organization Al Qaeda. Afghanistan is the only country in the world which was taken under the change by force of bullet by the fundamental extremist by giving reference of religious Islamic teaching. It is a different thing that America had played a very sympathetic role to crest the then Afghan President Najeeb and had helped the Taliban to overpower the rule of Afghanistan. Afghanistan has to undergo many ups and down since the time of oust of Najeeb from power and the Taliban control over power. The Taliban announced Kandahar as the capital of Afghanistan in place of the beautiful traditional capital of Kabul. This was done because Kandahar was the area where there was a lot of the Taliban influence.
Anyhow, after 9\11when the NATO army ousted the extremist Talibanis, the America led army felt a sigh of relief. After oust of the Taliban, Hamid karjai who lived in Kandahar by chance was made president of Afghanistan. This was done because of the view that he may be well aware of the hidden points of the Talibans, but it seems that despite the American interference, the presence of NATO army and even by handing over the power to the local Afghanies and taking many more such steps, the courage of the Talibanies is increasing. There is routine news of a big attack by the Taliban's from Afghanistan. To aim at the NATO soldiers, to kidnap the journalists and after kidnapping to kill these innocents mercilessly has become a daily routine of these savage terrorists. By bursting by the cannons world famous historical statues of peace messenger Lord Buddha in the Bamian state, The Talibanies have expressed that they are the enemies of the peace and the peace messengers. Those innocents have to pay by giving their lives for the wicked deeds of the Taliban's who fall under the suspicion of the Taliban's or aimed at by the NATO soldiers in the search of the Taliban's.
The Taliban terrorists have been trying their best to reorganize themselves for the last three years. But the raid on June 13 on Kandahar prison by the Taliban's proved that once again Kandahar is coming in the grip of the Taliban's. The Taliban's exploded the main gate of the Kandahar jail by a powerful explosion kept in a vehicle. It is told that the intensity of the explosion was so great that pares of the windows and doors of the houses, three miles away were got smashed. 30 motorcycle riders Taliban's took operation whereas 60 Taliban's with weapons entered the main gate of the jail, after damaging the gate. Two suicide attackers were included in this operation. The Taliban's got about 1100 prisoners released in this 'jail break' operation. It is told that among them, there were 400 dangerous Taliban's terrorist. There is also news of 10 security guards killed in this Taliban attack.
Obviously, where this incident has increased the courage of the Taliban's, at the same time the NATO army is embarrassed by the so big armed and organized raid of the Taliban's. Where Taliban's are taking it as their biggest success, the NATO spokesman is giving their reaction very carefully on this event. Although NATO has accepted it a great maneuvering success of the Taliban's that they have got released a great number of the prisoners. Yet the NATO spokesman General Karlos Barako says just to encourage the soldiers of NATO that this is somewhat different event. He says that by this incident we should not reach the decision that the Taliban's are getting reorganized and powerful again. After this incident, there was a great operation by the NATO army in Kandahar, against the Taliban. According to the Kandahar governor Abdul Khalid, Kandahar has been about cleared off the Taliban's after this action. There is news of hundreds of the Taliban's killed in this military action. There is also a news that among the dead Taliban's, most of them were the Pakistan terrorists. The Taliban's have taken under their change about 8 villages of the Argandhav area of Kandahar.
Although the recognition of the Taliban's as extremists in Afghanistan is there but at present their real activity is being seen along Pak-Afghan border, a two and half thousand kilometer long Durand line in Tribal (Qabaily) area. This area is known as an autonomous area. All this Tribal area is known as FATA. (Federally administered tribal areas). This area is also addressed as 'Agencies'. About 40 different Tribal groups live in this Pak-Afghan border area of 2500 kilometers. There total population is 60lacs. These tribal areas are known by seven different names. The areas that come under this FATA area are- Khaibar, Khurram, Arkjai, Mohammand, Bajor, North waziristan and South Waziristan.
At present, the activity of the Taliban's in this tribal area has increased so much that it has become a challenge before America and NATO army. This area has become a challenge against the entire world and the world peace. By nature, the tribals want to remain free. To live under some one and to obey the rules of others are not in their nature. In the age of colonial time when the English empire was spreading on all sides, the kabailes have given a strong opposition to the British at that time. At that time, the English has given them the status of an autonomous area to this border area. The English gave the kabailies liberty to follow their customs, the Islamic teachings and traditions.
Now the Taliban's are making use of unapproachable areas, Kabailies dresses and language and have deeply entered into this area. The social and geographical construction of this area is helping th Talibans to increase their strength in this area. This tribal area that had its different recognition has become a source of worry for the entire world because of the Militant Taliban's entrance here. If it is not controlled in time the reorganization of Taliban will come as a danger for not only Afghanistan, Pakistan and India but for the whole world.
