The Taliban, even after a takeover of Kabul a month ago they have not announced a government.

Still, Afghans are fearful of repeating the Taliban’s previous brutal reign between 1996 and 2001. It has staged small, isolated demonstrations protesting against them in capital Kabul, Herat and Mazar-i-Sharif.

More than 70 people, mostly women, rallied outside the Pakistani embassy, holding banners and chanting against what they said was meddling by Islamabad, who has long been accused of having close ties to the Taliban movement.

After Panjshir Incidence, even before it, many media reports suggested that Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence, also known as ISI, wants a puppet government in Afghanistan headed by their person, which is the main reason leading to a delay in the government formation.

Taliban spokesperson Zabiullah Mujahid last Saturday stated that the announcement about the new government of Afghanistan and Cabinet members will now be made this week.

Mujahid said they would be announcing an interim government first and keeping the window open for later changes.

Makeup by Taliban

Afghanistan is playing a complex ethic makeup as new rulers have pledged to be more inclusive than their first stint in power. However, today women are unlikely to be included and provide all their fundamental rights.

Under the Taliban’s 1996-2001 rule, the Taliban sharply curtailed women’s freedom when they seized Afghanistan.

This time, the Taliban made the exception. Women can now attend university as long as classes are segregated by sex or divided by a curtain.

The Taliban’s education authority mentioned all this in a lengthy document issued on Sunday. Only 16% of schools in Afghanistan are girls-only, and there is no doubt about their condition.

The Taliban and current stakeholders of Afghanistan are also grappling with the humanitarian crisis and looming financial condition.
