TALIBAN (Prayercast)

imposing their vision of Islam in Afghanistan  When the Taliban reclaimed power in Afghanistan in 2021, they stepped back onto the world stage. But who are they? The word ‘Taliban’ means ‘student’. The Taliban started as a religious movement of ultra-conservative Muslim students in 1994. When the Taliban rose up and overthrew Afghanistan’s ruling warlords, many Afghan citizens were relieved by their promises to eradicate corruption and establish one united Muslim rule. 
However, that relief was short-lived as the Taliban began imposing their own strict interpretations of Islamic law. Public floggings, amputations, and executions became common. Women and girls were banned from nearly all work and education. Minority religious practices were forbidden.
