Afghanistan President Ghani’s Facebook post
Ghani said he had left Kabul on a Facebook post to avoid clashes with the Taliban that would endanger millions of Kabul residents. He didn’t say where he was or where he was going, and it was unclear how power would be transferred in the aftermath of the Taliban’s lightning sweep across Afghanistan. Al Jazeera previously broadcast footage purportedly showing Taliban commanders in the presidential palace with dozens of armed fighters.
Abdullah, the coordinator of the peace process, said in a video on his Facebook page: ‘The former Afghan President has left the country to leave the people in this situation.’ Mr. Ghani’s resignation had been one of the Taliban’s main demands during months of peace talks with the government, but he had clung to power tenaciously. The insurgents have expressed a desire for a “peaceful transfer” in the coming days. Ghani was labeled a coward by some Kabul social media users for abandoning them in chaos. ‘We are all banging our heads in shame,’ read a tweet from the Afghan Embassy in India’s verified account, which was later deleted.
Taliban Afghanistan Conflict: Kabul Airport Flooded With People
After the Taliban wandered to the capital, the US military now took over Afghanistan’s airspace, while it tried to manage a chaotic evacuation in the face of widespread fears for unrest. Thousands of Afghans are trying to flee the country through Hamid Karzai International Airport in fear of returning to a brutal rule by the Taliban. Hundreds of people ran throughout the tarmac as US soldiers fired warning gunshots. Many such videos are getting viral on social media since this morning.
Hundreds of Afghans have been waiting for flights at Kabul airport, traveling with their luggage across dark paths, while women and children have been sitting near safety corridors. According to an airport source, scuffles erupted among those unable to find a seat as departures were halted. Multiple explosions were heard in the capital after dark, according to local television 1TV, but the city was relatively quiet during the day on Sunday. According to the aid organization Emergency, eighty injured people were brought to its hospital in Kabul, which was at capacity and only admitted people with life-threatening injuries.
5 People are suspected Dead at the Kabul Airport
At least 5 civilians are suspected dead at the Kabul airport as thousands of people began to forcibly enter airplanes. There was an observer who said that he saw the bodies of five people carried to a car. Another witness told that it was unclear if the victims were killed or stamped by gunshots. A US official said that US troops responsible for the security of the airport had earlier fired a few shots into the air to disseminate the crowd. Officials were not ready to comment on deaths immediately.
Air India Diverted/Cancelled its Flights to Kabul
After being declared “uncontrolled,” Air India cancelled its Delhi-Kabul-Delhi flight scheduled to be operational on Monday to avoid Afghanistan airspace. Air space on the airport was released to the military as NOTAM (notice to airmen) – by the Civil side of the Hamid Karzai airport in Kabul.
Air India confirms to ANI that it cannot operate due to the closure of Afghan airspace flights. Air India, after the authorities at Kabul airport declared that it was “uncontrolled,” relocated its Chicago-Delhi flight towards Sharjah in the UAE on Monday to prevent Afghanistan airspace. They said that the Chicago–Delhi flight would land in Sharjah to refuel. The flight will return to Delhi while the Afghan airspace will be avoided.
Vice President Amrullah Saleh Seizes to Bow Down Against Taliban
Vice President Amrullah Saleh stated that he will never submit to the terrorists and that he cannot be held to the same standard as the Taliban. On the same day that the Taliban claimed control of Kabul’s presidential palace, Amrullah Saleh declared on social media that he will never, ever bow to the Taliban. ‘I will never betray the soul and legacy of my hero, commander, legend, and guide Ahmad Shah Masoud. I will not let down the millions of people who have trusted me. I’ll never be able to live under one roof with the Taliban. Never, ever.’ As negotiations for an interim setup were underway, the vice president posted on Twitter. He may have left Kabul and traveled to Panhshiri Valley.
Taliban Afghanistan Conflict: UN Urged Taliban to Exercise Restraint
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged the Taliban and everyone involved to ‘exercise restraint.’ He stressed that the rights of women and girls who were victims of the former Taliban regime are important for the protection of rights. In addition, the UN announced that the Security Council would meet on Monday to discuss Afghanistan.
The US Diplomacy on Taliban Afghanistan Conflict
Thousands of police officers and other members of the armed forces have abandoned their posts, uniforms, and even weapons, raising concerns about a security vacuum in Kabul. The US began evacuating its citizens and Afghan staff from Kabul airport, with the assistance of thousands of troops stationed in the capital to assist the evacuation. According to a US defense official, several hundred embassy employees have already been evacuated from Afghanistan, and the airport is still open for commercial flights. The US embassy reported “reports of the airport catching fire,” but this was not immediately confirmed.
The Taliban have carried out a lightning sweep across the country, with government forces collapsing in the absence of US military support, which is finalizing its withdrawal by President Joe Biden’s August 31 deadline. The Taliban declared the Afghan war is over after terrorists took control of Kabul’s presidential palace as US-led forces departed and Western nations scrambled to evacuate their citizens on Monday.
Opponents of President Joe Biden’s decision to end America’s longest war, which began after the September 11, 2001, attacks, claimed that the chaos was caused by a failure of leadership. As Afghan forces, which had been trained and equipped for years at a cost of billions of dollars by the US and others, melted away, in the fortified Wazir Akbar Khan district, American diplomats were flown by helicopter to the airport. According to a US State Department spokesperson, almost all embassy personnel, including Ambassador Ross Wilson, were at the airport early Monday, and the American flag had been lowered and removed from the embassy compound.
The Spiritual Inclination is the Necessity for Afghan
Science, technology & people can’t solve everything. Science & technology cannot prevent war. It cannot ensure the safety of millions of innocent lives. Only someone with immense spiritual power can do that. True spiritual knowledge has a solution to everything. True spiritual knowledge is only imparted by a true spiritual leader. True spiritual leaders possess immense spiritual power. One must find and take the refuge of a true spiritual leader.
After taking the refuge of a true spiritual leader, understand the true worship of Allah Kabir as mentioned in holy Quran Sharif, Surah Al Furqan 25, Aayat 52-59. In these Aayats, Allah is asking prophet Muhammad to find a Baakhabar Saint who shows true worship of Allah Tallah Kabir.
Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj is the Baakhabar Saint
In the present time, only Jagatguru Tatvdarshi Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj is a true spiritual leader who shows true worship of Allahu Akbar Kabir from the holy scriptures of all religions. Everyone must take His refuge by taking Initiation (Naam Diksha) from Him. He is the incarnation of Allah Kabir Himself, He possesses unlimited power which can ensure the safety of those who come to His refuge. He can also prevent war and maintain global peace.
