Afghanistan Protests Spread In Early Challenge To Taliban by ryloy: 2:33pm On Aug 19, 2021
Flag-waving protesters took to the streets of more Afghan cities on Thursday as popular opposition to the Taliban spread, and a witness said several people were killed when the militants fired on a crowd in Asadabad in the east.

"Our flag, our identity," a crowd of men and women waving black, red and green national flags shouted in the capital Kabul, a video clip posted on social media showed, on the day Afghanistan celebrates independence from British control in 1919.

A witness reported gunshots fired near the rally, but they appeared to be armed Taliban shooting in the air.

One woman walked wearing an Afghan flag around her shoulders, and those marching chanted "God is greatest". At some protests elsewhere, media have reported people tearing down the white flag of the Taliban.

A Taliban spokesman was not immediately available for comment.

Some of the demonstrations are small, but combined with the ongoing scramble by thousands of people to get to Kabul airport and flee the country, they underline the challenge the Taliban face to govern the country.

The Islamist militant movement conquered Afghanistan at lightning speed as foreign troops withdrew, surprising even its leaders and leaving them to fill a power vacuum in many places.

Hundreds of people came out on the streets," Salim said. "At first I was scared and didn't want to go but when I saw one of my neighbours joined in, I took out the flag I have at home.

"Several people were killed and injured in the stampede and firing by the Taliban."

Protests also flared up in the city of Jalalabad and a district of Paktia province, both also in the east.

On Wednesday, Taliban fighters fired at protesters waving flags in Jalalabad, killing three, witnesses and media reported. Media reported similar scenes in Asadabad and another eastern city, Khost, on Wednesday.

They never see anything. Not when Isa Pantami is still alive.
I trust Pantami, he will rush and summit their manuscript on how to end protest that they used on ENDSARS idiots to the Taliban.
Very soon we will see hired thugs scattering things in the name of the protesters followed by counter protest.

As for me, I don't support any of them. Both the Taliban and anti Taliban towel wearing Modafukers are all terrorists to me

Real power of sovereignty rests with the people. Taliban will soon realise that if the people could give a cold shoulder to the sacked government, they can do same to Taliban too. The Taliban suddenly realised that the flag they think does not matter is one of the symbols that bind the people together in the Afghan society. They just got schooled in Sociology 101 on interactionist sociological association of how societies are formed.

The morale of terrorist groups is now on fire.....
I have always say it that religion is the tool for self achievements by these people... The spread of Islam is encouraged by the fact once you just overcome a particular territory, you become the political and religious leader... It is not always the fact that they want to make Islam strive but that they want to have a taste of power when all they can present is their religious prowess and nothing more.
That is why I am scared for Nigeria as a nation because we have allowed religion to divide us. That is our only weakness. Apart from that none. When there is ethnic crisis and the perpetrators want to garner support from outside, they will say that they were attack by opposite religion.
May God help us...

This is the difference between the Afghans and naija people.

If it was naija, the highest things we'll do are, to attack ourselves tribally on nairaland and other social media platforms, las las, we'll make jokes and comedies out of the situation and we move on. undecided while the minority oppress us.

Chai,who do us this na ? undecided

Less than 10% of our population has been oppressing us since God knows when, and up till now we still remain docile !!! undecided

Repent now of your sinful evil ways to avoid spending your eternity in hell fire after you die. Jesus Christ love and warns you to repent and convert now to Christianity to avoid hell fire. Only Jesus Christ can save you by his death on the cross and his blood which washes away your sins, any other ways ( Islam, paganism, Hinduism, atheism, etc) can not save you. Be wise while you still have the chance accept Jesus Christ now and save your soul from hell. Be wiser than Satan and follow the one true God

The people of Afghanistan should learn to live with the Taliban like many of them did btw 1996 to 2001.

This new invasion was well planned.
Armour were left behind for the Taliban by the withdrawn US Army, the West authorized this for a reason.




Afghans should endure till their help will come from God alone.
