Afghanistan Before And After The Taliban

Before the Taliban came to Afghanistan There was This One Boy Assef who bullied our main characters in the story; Amir and Hasaan. But The only one Assef really liked to bully was Hasaan because he was known as a Hazara But As we just found out by Rahim Khan is that Hasaan is actually Amir Jhan's Brother .

The Taliban Came in and they wee searching For Baba So Baba and Amir Jhan Packed Their Things up and Got Out Of There Before they could find them. They Also were happy that Hasaan and Ali were safe too.

Who Are The Taliban?

The Taliban is a predominantly Pashtun, Islamic fundamentalist group that ruled Afghanistan from 1996 until 2001, when a U.S.-led invasion toppled the regime for providing refuge to Al- Queda and Osama bin Laden.The Taliban was formed in the early 1990s by an Afghan faction of mujahideen, Islamic fighters who had resisted the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan. They were joined by younger Pashtun tribesmen who studied in Pakistani madrassas, or seminaries; taliban is Pashto for "students." Pashtuns comprise a plurality in Afghanistan and are the predominant ethnic group in much of the country's south and east.
