While we celebrate independence here, some people lost their freedom and more. Deeply worried and concerned about the people, especially women and kids in Afghanistan. My hearts bleeds. In moments of such helplessness, I wish I had the power to do something.— SONAL CHAUHAN (@sonalchauhan7) August 15, 2021
Luv Sinha wrote that the situation was a 'warning' of what happens when a nation is taken over by fundamentalists. He termed it a 'shame' that most nations won't get involved in helping Afghanistan.
Taliban took over cities like Kandahar, Herat and Lashkar Gah, thus encircling the Afghanistan government in Kabul as the United States of America retreated from the nation after 20 years. It demanded the government to ensure a 'peaceful transition' to the terror group. President Ashraf Ghani resigned when the Taliban ventured into the outskirts of Kabul.
This was after the Taliban established its foothold on areas like Mazar-e-Sharif on Friday and Jalalabad and Lashkar Gah on Saturday. Diplomats were evacuated by the USA troops via helicopters.
Chaos reigned at the Kabul airport as people rushed to leave the country as soon as possible. Several people were injured at the tarmac when they attempted to climb a plane. Even the airport staff seemed to have fled to safety.
