The Taliban has returned after nearly 20 years in Kabul. The terrorist group is now implementing new changes in the country according to its own accord. Even though thousands of Afghans are scared and want to flee the country, some civilians are not ready to bow down to the Taliban. After seizing power, the Taliban have been flying their flag instead of the Afghan flag, and Afghans are constantly opposing this change.
