Following the capture of Kabul, the Taliban took a flexible stance, declaring a “debt waiver” throughout Afghanistan and appealing to women to join its government. With this, the Taliban is trying to allay the fears of the people, who were seen fleeing Kabul a day earlier to escape his regime, and many were killed after this created an atmosphere of chaos at the airport. .
