NEW DELHI: The Taliban’s takeover has effectively trampled a fledgling democracy and freedoms that Afghans enjoyed and brought back fears of a descent into the pre-2001 days. Fearing for their lives, people are withdrawing from platforms/practices the Taliban loathe based on their own interpretation of the Islamic law. A fatigued war-torn nation may well degenerate into the throes of a civil war, as journalist Lynne O’Donnell, who has extensively reported on Afghanistan, says. She is in conversation with StratNews Global Editor-in-Chief Nitin A. Gokhale, detailing her on-ground experience, the follies she thinks the U.S. and its allies committed and the ‘Kabul troika’.
