In view of the current situation in Afghanistan, the Government of India has decided to recall the Ambassador and staff based in Kabul. At the same time, Indian officials and other people are also being airlifted. The IAF's C-17 aircraft left Kabul on Tuesday morning with more than 130 people. It is believed that the Indian ambassador is also coming from this plane. Sources in the news agency ANI say that these people were shifted to a safe area of Kabul airport on Monday evening itself. Along with this, on Monday also many people were brought to India by an Air Force plane.
According to ANI sources, the rest of the Indians stranded in Afghanistan are in a safe area and they will also be airlifted in a day or two. The Foreign Ministry also said on Monday that it is closely monitoring the incident in Afghanistan. We will take every step to protect our citizens.
"We know that there are some Indian nationals in Afghanistan who want to return and we are in touch with them," the Ministry of External Affairs said. We appeal to every Indian to return to India immediately. We are also in constant touch with the representatives of the Afghan Sikh, Hindu communities, those who want to leave Afghanistan will be given full facilities to bring them to India.
Meanwhile, the Ministry of Home Affairs has changed the visa rules for people coming to India from Afghanistan. In view of the current situation, a new category of electronic visa e-Emergency X-Misc Visa has been started. This facility has been started so that people coming to India from Afghanistan can get visa as soon as possible.
On Monday, 7 people died after hanging from a US plane at Kabul airport. At the same time, American soldiers killed two armed men at Kabul Airport. In view of these conditions, all military and commercial aircraft were stopped, but the airport was reopened late at night after 1000 American soldiers arrived. Now American soldiers are handling the management of the flights.
America has said that it will deploy 6,000 of its soldiers at the airport, so that civilians can be evacuated safely. There is a stampede-like situation at Kabul airport right now. Thousands of people have gathered there to leave the country. There are also many who have reached the airport without taking any luggage.
After the complete capture of Afghanistan, the fear of the Taliban is visible there. There has been a stampede everywhere from the airport to leave the country. Fearing the Taliban, the police and security forces personnel have taken off their uniforms. They left their homes and went underground. The Taliban has launched a door-to-door search for employees, police and military officers, journalists and people associated with foreign NGOs. There are no more squads of Afghan security forces left in Kabul.
The current situation in Afghanistan will also be discussed in the United Nations Security Council meeting in the US today. External Affairs Minister of India S Jaishankar will also attend this meeting. He has said that the Security Council meeting is expected to discuss the concerns of the international community. Prior to this meeting, Jaishankar also spoke to US Secretary of State Antony J Blinken.
Since the Taliban's capture of Kabul, a period of devastation, women's restrictions and massacres have returned in Afghanistan. The Taliban have started imposing restrictions on women. Girls have been banned from going to school and college and women going to the office. There is a ban on leaving the house without a man. It has been made mandatory for women to wear a burqa. Strict punishment is also being given for not obeying the orders of the Taliban.
Shocking news came out on Monday at Kabul Airport. Sources told that several women who were not wearing hijab were shot near the airport. However, a Taliban source has rubbished the news. He said that these rumours are being spread to defame the Taliban.
The women of Afghanistan are demanding freedom and sharing their pain. Afghan fashion photographer Fatima says Afghan women are considered among the most stylish women in the world, but with the return of the Taliban, they have to return to the burqa. 22-year-old Ayesha is pursuing a course in International Relations from Kabul University. She says, 'I have only two months left for my final semester to be over, but now I may never be able to graduate.'
Habiba, 26, a university student, says that the Taliban have closed schools and colleges, but burqa shops are opening. Among them too, the demand for such a thick cloth burqa is the highest, which completely covers the women. My mother is pleading that my sister and I should start wearing burqa.
The mother thinks that she will save us from the Taliban by wearing a burqa, but we do not have a burqa in our house and neither do I want to buy a burqa. Wearing a burqa would mean that I have accepted the authority of the Taliban, that I have given them the right to control themselves. I am afraid that all the achievements for which I have worked so hard will be taken away from me.
