From their rise to power in 1996 as self-proclaimed saviours and puritanical scholars with a mission to eliminate factionalism, corruption, and ideological deficiencies, to their ouster in 2001, and their triumphant return in 2021, the Taliban's stranglehold on Afghanistan is an unfortunate saga of people’s suffering amidst a brutal power struggle. Over two years have elapsed since the resurgence of these formidable terrorists to power, and their control remains unshaken. What sustains this hold? Unlike their first stint in power, the de facto Taliban government strives to establish diplomatic relations with the United States and the larger international community to navigate the dire situation.
