It is difficult for the Taliban to rule for a long time

The Taliban occupied Afghanistan and formed an interim government. However, is it difficult for their government to survive for long? That is what the famous writer and historian William Dolrimple says. William Dalrymple, author of Bloombury's 2012 book, Return of a King: The Battle for Afghanistan, made a number of interesting remarks in an interview with PTI on the current situation in the Taliban.

He described it as a ‘cohesive wonderful’ government set up by aging mullahs with a mentality of not accepting change. "The Taliban have not been able to win the hearts and minds of the Afghan people," he said. The Taliban, which has vowed to form a coalition government, has said it has failed to prioritize former presidents such as Hamid Karzai or key figures in the previous government.

‘The governments that have so far successfully led Afghanistan have made an effort to govern across all communities. But at present, the Taliban government is unable to impress the Afghans, who make up 60 per cent of the country and the women, who make up 50 per cent of the country. only 40 per cent of the Pashtuns are the source of the Taliban he recalled. "Especially women, who make up half of the population there, can't be reassured," Dolrimple said. This is evidenced by the fact that there are all men in the cabinet.

"This is a good development in a way, because such a government is unlikely to rule Afghanistan successfully," he said. Asked how India's role in the Afghan case would be, he said he did not want to comment on the matter. Speaking about the support of other countries in the government of Afghanistan So far there have been many attempts to fulfill the aspirations of the Afghan people. Despite the efforts of the East India Company, the British Raj, the Russians, and most recently the United States, nothing has been achieved.

"It is very difficult for any Western power to puppet the throne of Afghanistan. It's no secret. " However he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat President Hamid Karzai's government.

‘The last Taliban government was a very brutal regime and failed to gain popularity. There is a huge positivity towards Karzai who then came to power. He gives great respect to tribal leaders when they come from faraway places in Afghanistan. We consider the people important and stand by them. "

Karzai, who has an all-encompassing nature, has constantly encouraged the Taliban to leave the violent struggle and join the government. If anyone has tried to make a difference in Afghanistan, it is Karzai.

But Ashraf Ghani, who came later, said he could not continue it. He was of the opinion that he had promoted divisive politics in his own style. At a press conference, William Dolrimple recalled that he had the mentality of committing the foolish acts that Ash Tray had thrown at a female journalist. He said fleeing Afghanistan during the crisis would be more of a problem for Afraf Ghani.

The author errs in the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan. William Dolrimple opined that the US decision to withdraw its troops was a strategic mistake. He further added that there was no doubt that the Taliban had received funding, training and asylum from Pakistan. In a recent interview, he said that if necessary, they could try to get rid of Pakistan, which has given them a helping hand.
