New Delhi: Afghan officials said President Ashraf Ghani had left the country after the Taliban spoke of moving forward in Kabul. At the same time, Taliban commanders say that they have captured the Afghan Rashtrapati Bhavan. Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid says his forces will enter parts of Kabul and capture posts that have been evacuated by security forces to prevent looting and chaos. He tells the people not to panic about their entry into the city.
HCNR chief Abdullah Abdullah has asked Afghan forces to cooperate in ensuring security. He asked the Taliban to allow some time for talks before entering the city of Kabul. He called Ashraf Ghani a ‘former president’ and said that Ghani had left the country.
Meanwhile, the Indian government has made a plan to evacuate Indians from Afghanistan. The Government of India has kept the C-17 Globemaster on standby for the rescue operation. Apart from this, Air India flight carrying 129 Indians has reached Delhi from Kabul. At the same time, America, Britain and Germany have closed their embassy in Kabul and started a rescue operation to evacuate their citizens to Kabul. Britain has sent 600 soldiers to Kabul to evacuate 3000 civilians.
Afghan citizens living in Delhi are worried. Hidayatullah, who lives in Jangpura, says, “The leaders are on the run and the citizens are facing difficulties. I have spoken to my friends who told me that the Taliban have entered Kabul. Recently I have lost my cousin because of this war.’ Abdul Qazir says, ‘My relatives live in Herat, Afghanistan. Everything is closed there. There is no peace. Women and girls are not allowed to go out without wearing a burqa. We want freedom.
Ahmed, owner of a shop in Lajpat Nagar, says, “Things are getting worse day by day. We are concerned about our families who are living in Afghanistan. May Allah keep us safe.’ Nadeem said that we came here in December 2015. The Taliban have captured most of the provinces of Afghanistan. My family told me in the morning that there was no firing in Kabul.
On the other hand, Afghan students of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) want their stay in India to be extended. Jalal-ud-din said, ‘My visa will expire next month. I request that my visa be extended for a longer period. I don’t have any option. Other Afghan students are also facing the same problem. JNU student Ali Asghar said that I am part of a minority community in Afghanistan. I am from Bamyan province. It was the most peaceful and safe province. Today I heard that they (Taliban) have taken control of my province. I am concerned about the future of women and minorities.
