Taliban Take Over Kandahar & Lashkar Gah, Make Rapid Strides And We’re Still Hoping For Ceasefire

Kolkata: Time is indeed flying and we are still sitting helpless or pretending to be. The Taliban insurgency is taking unprecedented heights with the hardliners capturing Kandahar, Afghanistan’s second-largest city late Thursday and also Lashkar Gah.

According to news agency ANI, Taliban are now calling the shots at over 10 out of the 34 administrative centres of provinces which sends alarming signals. They now control 8 of the 34 provinces in Afghanistan and are aiming for more.

Unfortunately, world leaders are still hoping against hope that Taliban would agree to a ceasefire which seems to be a strict no from their side as long as Ashraf Ghani remains saddled on the President’s chair.

What is shocking is that the rest of the world instead of conveying a stern message to Taliban is more occupied sending troops to evacuate its nationals from the embattled country throwing the lives of common Afghans into a pool of uncertainties. Be it USA, India, UK or Canada, withdrawal is the mantra much to the chagrin of Afghans.

Despite experts pointing fingers at Pakistan for harbouring militancy on its soil providing support to Taliban, none of the heads of states has castigated the rogue country for further fomenting turbulence in Afghanistan. It is apposite to take a note of ex US National Security Adviser HR McMaster who exhorted world leaders to be tough on Pakistan. “It’s time for tough stance on Pakistanis who have helped perpetuate the threat from Taliban and used other terrorist groups as an arm of their foreign policy,” he said adding China too cannot absolve itself of charges of overtly backing Taliban.

Any takers?
