The host of Afghan TV’s Peace Studio was surrounded by Taliban members and at gunpoint while telling the camera to not be afraid and cooperate with the new government.
A journalist translated the video, explaining “the presenter of Afghan TV’s Peace Studio political debate program says the Islamic Emirate (Taliban’s preferred name) wants the public to ‘cooperate with it and should not be afraid.’”
The show, called Pardaz, continued with the host interviewing a member of the Taliban. The first segment, where the host tells the public to cooperate, is spoken in Dari, and the interview is in Pashto, the two most popular languages in Afghanistan.
Earlier this month, the Biden administration botched the withdrawal of the US military from Afghanistan, thereby allowing the Taliban, an Islamist terrorist organization, to seize control of the country.
In the last two weeks, the terrorist organization gained control of US military bases, equipment, and has begun expanding its rule by use of force. As of Monday, August 30th, the US military was evacuated from Afghanistan, however, reports suggest over 100 American citizens remain stranded under Taliban rule.
