Footage surfacing from Afghanistan, shows an innocent civilian draped in the nations flag, being confronted at gunpoint by Taliban fighters, slapped across the face and confiscated of his property. While watching this footage, lets not forget earlier this week the Islamic Emirate has ordered its Mujahideen and once again instructs them that no one is allowed to enter anyone's house without permission. Life, property and honor of none shall be harmed but must be protected by the Mujahedeen. Does this seem like the protection of ones honor or property?
With the Taliban takeover still on the move, more and more footage has been surfacing of the oppression Afghan citizens have been facing since the retake of their country. As the Taliban swiftly retake the land, there has still been little to no resistance from the Afghan Armed Forces.
This footage provides even more insight on how the Taliban ideology has not changed one bit over the past two decades. As they seize the opportunity during the withdraw of allied forces, the Taliban have now began desecrating the nations flag.
Other reports have stated, during the invasion of Kabul, the Taliban lowered the Afghanistan flag at the presidential palace and replaced it with a Taliban flag. As a symbol of defeat, the Afghanistan citizen morale has been crushed. Although all may seem hopeless thus far, the countries northern province of Panjshir has begun forming a union of military and political opposition.
