Sickular spin doctors on the job, pushing Govt to recognise Taliban

New Delhi: When the Taliban capturing power in Afghanistan was much easier than attaining formal recognition from the international community, a lobby and apologists in India are working overtime to push the Government of India towards a specific agenda - give importance to the insurgents and radical extremists.

Others in the ecosystem threw one-liners such as - India should be the first mover to recognise Taliban, whatever has happened in the past.


Or, for that matter, it's the 'end' of America in Afghanistan, and it would not be wise to wait for Washington's decision on recognising the Taliban regime.


So far, the government has adopted a wait and watch policy and emphasised bringing back Indians, including diplomats and members of Hindu and Sikh communities.


But the logic behind the sickuar ecosystem's clamour for giving recognition may not be very convincing.


Yet, they have started coming once Britain counterpart Boris Johnson has asked Pakistan Imran Khan not to do things in a hurry.


Johnson dialled Imran on Tuesday, Aug 17, and said, “the legitimacy of any future Taliban government will be subject to them upholding internationally agreed standards on human rights and inclusivity”.


The Imran Khan regime has been all too glad to see the Taliban seize power in their immediate neighbourhood.


Notably, Johnson’s advice and comments came after Imran Khan earlier claimed that Afghans had “broken the shackles of slavery”.


Canada has already announced that it will not recognise the Taliban regime.


Among the Neta class, Samajwadi Party leader Shafiqur Rahman Barq said that the Taliban is a force that did not allow even strong countries like Russia and America to settle in their country.


He compared the feats of Taliban gunmen with freedom fighters, and now the UP government has slapped sedition charges.


Another tweet went almost viral with a bit of variation - "Condemning the Taliban is the new patriotism test for Indian Muslims".


But international actions keep flowing.


The US has blocked Taliban access to $9.5 billion Afghan monetary reserves.


The Taliban, which remains on the list of ‘Specially Designated Nationals’, would not access any Afghan central bank assets kept in the United States.


The Biden Administration has frozen assets worth nearly $9.5 billion belonging to Da Afghanistan Bank and blocked cash from being shipped to the war-torn nation.


The plea to recognise the Taliban and send in money thus have many factors and ramifications.


There are already reports that Al Qaeda and IS are covertly operating under the Taliban umbrella from Helmand, Nimruz and Kandahar.


In Tajikistan, reports claimed the Afghan Embassy replaced pictures of 'outgoing president Ashraf Ghani with Amrullah Saleh, the vice president who says he is now the 'legitimate' president of Afghanistan.


All these mean, the Taliban will have a long way to go, to get 'recognised' by the international;

Communists and Congress - Two sinking ships

The downward slippery journey of Indian communists and Congress is a reality, and this decline is not only electoral but also in influencing the sociopolitical mindset. New Delhi: It was a usual diplomatic episode when India had sought quicker extradition of Kim Peter Davis, alias Niels Holck, from Denmark. This was flagged off when Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen was in India and was holding bilateral talks with her Indian counterpart, Narendra Modi. She also hailed ...
