Some people still believe the Taliban regime over destroyed Afghanistan will be prosperous and well-off and wish good luck to the Taliban, despite being well known for the disastrous years (1996-2001) afghans went through. However, people must understand that the Taliban seeks to rule under the banner of “Sharia” but in their own traditional (Pashtun) attire.
For instance, they succeeded in making women dependent on men, collecting revenue from the cultivation of opium, maintaining superiority over minorities and making them slaves (Hazaras), prohibiting women’s education (girls above the age of 8), etc.
On the contrary, Islam offers equality, protects the rights of minorities, offers education to all and prohibits the cultivation of such crops which are toxic. The rules they succeed to enforce were (are) contrary to the teachings of Islam and “Sharia” law.
They also succeeded in imposing confusing laws such as the kite ban and argued that people were wasting their time flying the kites, resulting in barring to offer the Salah/Namaaz (prayers). Firing bullets and bombs and instructing weapon drills to women and men, including children in barren lands, also wastes time.
Such people who favour the Taliban, despite knowing the truth, seek the establishment of the Taliban’s self-made “sharia” must rinse their heads with facts and logic. Otherwise, the consequences are gruesome. People must also receive the lessons from those countries where Islam is born and from the ages where “sharia” law governs the state (Arab countries). Yet, despite that, they (Arab countries) turn tail to “sharia” law.
They introduced movie theatres, their new policy allowed to wear a bikini dress to the female tourist women despite having strict rules over women and despite claiming that Arab land and people are superior and pious because the “Quran” was revealed there and many prophets were born on that pious land who preached the Islamic teachings from there.
Now ask yourself a question, if those people are not able to stand on (sharia law), which they have been advocating/pledging for ages, then how can the non-Arabs seek (sharia law), that too self-made (Taliban Rule)?
During the reign of Prophet Muhammad and the successors (Abu Bakr to Ali), people were willing to implement the “sharia” upon themselves, upon their families from private administration to public administration. That is why it worked then. It was easy to govern the state under “Shari law”.
In today’s society, where people seek to teach others rather than learn from others, it is difficult to fit in the suit of Sharia law, that too self-made like (Taliban rule).
P.S.: I am not against the teachings of Islam. I dare the Taliban to implement the sharia rule in the same manner that governed the state during the reign of Prophet Mohammad and successors.
