Is Afghanistan’s New Taliban Regime A Threat to Indo-Pak Border Designs: Strategic Talks, Repatriation Landscape, And Diplomatic Covenants

Upasana Kashyap, 3rd-year undergraduate pursuing English Literature from Lady Shri Ram College For Women, Delhi University


The sobriquet of Taliban has always been taken for the impending nemesis of terror-buildout, and its takeover of Afghanistan following the withdrawal of US-NATO Army as US President Joe Biden declares discontinuation, is as much a reason of international political paralysis as it is a source of threat to the cultural, economic and sociopolitical hegemony of the nation itself. This paper provides an elaborate account of events that have been unleashed on the democracy and sovereignty of Afghanistan - long-cherished gift of India, by Islamist invaders as the nation surrenders to kneel under the militant coup. Surpassing the scopes of treaties, covenants, and mutual negotiations, the militant coup is supposed to have restored the anarchic horrors in Afghanistan dragging the nation 20 years back in time, meanwhile its radical outlook and a peace-pacing embodiment this time has also raised a token of hope, seconded by China.

The author addresses an intimate exchange of diplomatic policies in the paper, and questions the long cry of communication between India and the new governing regime of Afghanistan in terms of its various channels of trades and interaction. This essentially amounts to the withered circumstances of Afghanistan, the ruin that the country's shortly-saturated peace has gone through, and records the unfathomable quantum of Afghans attempting to pry from their native land through various commercial take-offs leading to an absolute stampede on the airports. The paper entails the repatriation policies and successful evacuations performed by the Indian government, its take on accommodating Non-Sikh/Hindu origins within Indian asylums, and does a comprehensive study on the decisions effectuated by the MEA of India which has put the world out of order. This necessarily includes the pre-engagements of Taliban with Pakistan, an alleged shelter-neighbor of anti-India forces, and recounts the possible border threats India may face during the Taliban's regime, through the land of Afghanistan. The author has employed doctrinal methodology and has obtained majority of information from the routine news updates.
