As the US has completely withdrawn from Afghanistan,
Taliban has taken control over the whole of the country. Today, the true picture of Taliban that they are killing civilians including children, women and non-combating old age innocent people, can be seen. Taliban claim that they are ‘Mujahid’ fighting for Islam, however their heinous actions are contradictory to the basic teachings of Islam which clearly forbids killing people unjustly, suicide bombings, breaking covenants and peace treaties. Taliban and its fighters are consistently violating Islamic principles in every other day. In real, they do not abide by the peace treaties which are among the objectives of Sharia i.e. protection of religion and lives.
Allah said in the Qur’an ‘If they incline to peace, you also incline to it, and (put your) trust in Allah, verily, he is the All-Hearer, the All-Knower’. (Al-Qur’an 8:61). Contrary to mentioned verse, Taliban is not inclining towards peace treaty offered by Afghanistan Government, but causing bloodshed and pillage.
Taliban snatch the rights of women, children and common people although it is given in Islam, besides oppressing and punishing them for those acts for which Allah had not given anyone any authority. By passing of each day, it is becoming crystal clear that Taliban is not representing Islam rather they are power hungry wolves who would stoop to low level to attain power.
While answering the question asking about Taliban and Osama Bin Laden, a Mufti from Saudi Arabia namely Sheikh Ahmad an-Najmi (1927-2008) quoted a verse from a Hadith that ‘Allah curses the one who supports and assist an innovators’ (Sahih Muslim, Hadith no. 1978), and called them innovators (Biddati takfiri) who defend terrorism and cause bloodshed in Afghanistan. Therefore, it is binding duty upon Islamic scholars to come forward to warn against Taliban and their evil actions and how they are giving bad name to religion of Islam and misguiding Muslims.
