Is this the new “moderate” Taliban?
According to the New York Post, Taliban forces are conducting door-to-door searches looking for anyone who may have assisted the U.S. Military.
“A report by the nonprofit RHIPTO Norwegian Center for Global Analyses, seen by Reuters, said the insurgents were hunting for people linked to the previous administration, which fell Sunday when the Islamist militant movement took Kabul,” the Post reports.
“Taliban are intensifying the hunt-down of all individuals and collaborators with the former regime, and if unsuccessful, target and arrest the families and punish them according to their own interpretation of Sharia law,” the report said.”
Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid also promised to respect women’s rights. A woman was shot later that day by the Taliban for not wearing a burqa.
