They are now fighting their own history of revenge….
Most of those trying to run the place have NO experience in governance….
It was only a matter of time before the people running Afghanistan would have to beg those leaving to come back to run the place….
This while even MORE people get on airplanes to leave…..
Afghanistan’s new acting prime minister, Mullah Muhammad Hassan, told Al Jazeera in an interview aired on Thursday that former officials who fled when the Taliban seized power last month should return to the country, saying the group would “guarantee their security and safety.”
Repeating earlier pledges made by the Taliban, he said anyone who had worked alongside the United States would be granted amnesty and had nothing to fear.
“No one will be able to prove that he was subjected to revenge,” Mr. Hassan said. “And in such tense circumstances, it is easy to do what you want. But the movement is disciplined and controls its gunmen.”
Those assurances have done little to ease the concerns of tens of thousands of Afghans who are watching as the Taliban tighten their control over the country.
Demonstrations against the government have been banned, and protests have been violently crushed.
“The Taliban have repeatedly insisted that they will respect human rights, yet these claims are completely at odds with what we are currently seeing and hearing in cities across the country,” Amnesty International said on Thursday in a statement. “Afghans who have taken to the streets, understandably fearful about the future, are being met with intimidation, harassment and violence — particularly directed at women. Multiple journalists attempting to cover the protests have reported being detained, beaten up and having their equipment confiscated.”….
In the end?
The Taliban will have to deal with running a country their way….
And trying to deal with an outside world that pressures them on how things should go internally ….
One would think that those stayed and who can accept the Taliban rule will rise in importance within the new government with their knowledge and skill being essential ….
