After the Taliban took over Afghanistan, the situation there is uncontrollable. The neighboring country is witnessing one painful bloody scene after another. On Thursday, one such heart-wrenching incident came to the fore again. Suicide bombings kill 169 Afghan and 13 American soldiers at Kabul airport. The Islamic State-Khorasan (ISIS-K) took responsibility for this attack. It carried out this attack targeting American soldiers leaving Afghanistan, Afghan civilians and Taliban fighters. The Islamic State-Khorasan (ISIS-K) describes itself as a staunch enemy of the Taliban. The terrorist group considers the Taliban a puppet of America. It has accused the Taliban of not promoting Sharia in the true sense. This ‘subsidiary’ of ISIS has also promised a new phase of jihad in Afghanistan. The US has also expressed the possibility of more similar attacks.
How is it different from Taliban?
ISIS-K is more ruthless and brutal than Taliban. The Taliban present themselves as Afghan nationalists. He describes himself as the foremost advocate of Pashtun interests. At the same time, the ideology of ISIS-K is inspired by ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria). ISIS is the same terrorist group that not only declared Mosul as its capital after pushing out Iraqi forces in 2014, but also named its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the new caliph of Muslims. Since then, the stature and strength of ISIS continued to grow. The central leadership and cadre of ISIS-K is made up of people from Pakistan and Uzbekistan. It is even fancier than the Taliban in ways.
What is the intention of ISIS-K
The intentions of ISIS-K are bigger and more dangerous than the Taliban. Its intention is to form an Islamic province by joining Iran, Central Asian countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan. He wants complete annihilation of Shias, Sikhs, Hindus and Christians in the region.
Where does ISIS-K get people from?
You must be thinking that even after so many operations, which such factory is open which keeps the supply of these terrorists constant? Actually, they are none other than the religious fanatics of Pakistan, Central Asia, North Caucasus of Russia and Xinjiang of China. ISIS-K has got an opportunity to take advantage of the latest situation in Afghanistan. He knows that the country is in complete disarray. This is the time to strengthen your hold here. According to a UN report, 8,000-10,000 foreign fighters have entered the country from Pakistan, Central Asia, Russia’s North Caucasus and China’s Xinjiang since the beginning of the withdrawal of American forces from Afghanistan. It wants complete Islamic rule in Afghanistan.
How the youth are tricked?
ISIS-K systematically seeks its victims. One of his army is also engaged on the Internet. She keeps an eye on those who believe in her views. He can also be called his ‘compassion’. In the name of Jihad, it shares ideas with people through social media. When it is sure that the person has been ‘brainwashed’, he is given a place in the team. The terrorist group throws such dice that it becomes impossible to get out of its grip.
