As the Taliban grapple with the issue of recognition, they should study the Covenant of Madinah (aka the Constitution of Madinah) as to how the noble Messenger (pbuh) brought diverse groups together into a formal compact to establish the first Islamic State.
The Taliban may not have achieved formal recognition from any country so far but they continue to be received by neighboring states. They certainly have de facto recognition and it is only a matter of time before they get formal recognition.
The Taliban victory over US imperialism and its Nato allies has shifted the balance of power to the Eurasia landmass. This region will now serve as the engine of economic growth and development.
The shooting war in Afghanistan may be over but other forms of warfare continue. These include economic and propaganda warfare with the specific aim to frustrate the Taliban’s consolidation of power to govern effectively and provide services to the people.
Barring the defeated powers (US, NATO and India), the rest of the world wants peace and stability in Afghanistan. If Afghanistan’s immediate neighbours put their heads together and coordinate policies, peace is not only possible, it is highly desirable.
There is no shortage of ‘experts’ giving unsolicited advice to the Taliban about who to include in the cabinet as well as women’s rights. These self-styled experts should keep their advice to themselves. Having defeated a superpower, the Taliban know how to order their lives.
US-zionist client regimes in the Middle East are acting as “Islamic legitimizers” to enable the imperialists and Zionist to sneak back into Afghanistan. Taliban, beware!
Economic pressure and exploiting political differences among the Taliban are tools the US-Nato combine will use to undermine Afghanistan. The doom and gloom projections, however, are not likely to come true.
For more than a week, leading Western media outlets led by the New York Times and CNN, had a field day berating the Taliban’s new policy about women’s education.
The lightning speed and peaceful way in which the Taliban took control of the country, including the capital city Kabul indicates their brilliant planning and wide support among the masses.
