Submitted by the Taliban: Two mid-Indian deportations to Afghanistan
Submitted by the Taliban: Outside the large Indian embassy gate in Kabul, a group of Taliban militants are waiting – armed with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenade launchers. Inside the compound were 150 Indian ambassadors and nations – growing up in shock as they watched news that the Taliban were tightening their grip on the capital, which they had taken the day before without a fight.Submitted by the TalibanSubmitted by the TalibanSubmitted by the TalibanSubmitted by the TalibanSubmitted by the Taliban

Pakistan has long been a major supporter of the Taliban, exploiting the country for so-called deep-seated tactics in endless wars – real and communications – with India as a major rival. India, in turn, strongly supported the regime that took power when the Taliban were ousted, causing them to be hated and hostile to a militant Islamist group. As the first twelve cars left the embassy at the end of August 16, some of these waved and smiled at the passengers – an AFP reporter among them. One of them guided them on the road from the green city center and on the main road to the airport. The decision by the embassy to ask the Taliban to herd the Indians out was made when the military barred entry into a heavily fortified area after Kabul’s arrest the day before.
A quarter of the two hundred or more people who had gathered in foreign missions had already been expelled from Afghanistan before the country’s new leaders took full control of the city. “When we took out the second group … we faced the Taliban, who refused to let us out of the green zone,” said an official who left the party on August 16. “We then decided to contact the Taliban and ask them to cancel our trip.”
Two agreements for the deportation failed to be fulfilled during the day, much to the consternation of a large group who were strapped in ambush, while one ambassador likened that to “house arrest”. It was dark for hours when the cars finally left the compound and took a three-mile (3 km) trip to the airport.
However, Taliban militants outside the Indian embassy were not seeking revenge, but were escorted to Kabul airport, where a military plane was evacuated after New Delhi decided to close down its operations. The snail’s journey took five hours, with passengers passing every minute for fear of being attacked. Unusual checkpoints had been set up and thousands of people displaced by the war were near the road. Occasionally, Taliban militants along with a convoy of Indians jumped out of their vehicles and pointed their guns at the crowd, forcing them to retreat. a large crowd gathered around one crossroads. The escort left when the flight arrived at the airport, where American troops had taken over and assembled the planes
After waiting another two hours, the group boarded a C-17 fighter jet that took off early in the morning and landed at the air base in the West Indian state of Gujarat that morning. “I am very happy to be back,” Shirin Pathare, an Air India flight from Kabul, told AFP as he got off the plane. “India is a paradise
