Kabul Mosque Blast Kills 5 Civilians
As for the moment, none of the governments from other countries have recognized the rule of the Taliban. Despite this non-acceptance, power is held quite strongly by these fundamentalist rulers. The Kabul mosque blast is one of the shows of violence which have become a common phenomenon in Afghanistan. Seven weeks after the Taliban has taken control, their power is only getting stronger.
It seems that the people of Afghanistan are not quite happy with the rule of the Taliban. The Kabul mosque blast was particularly planned on the day on which the Taliban forces were supposed to carry out their victory rally. This might have been done in order to create a distraction for the Taliban forces. Further investigations will release the details of the explosions to the public.

What do you think might have been the motive of the Kabul mosque blast? Do you think that the people of Kabul had organized it to disrupt the victory march of the Taliban? Whatever it might be, the event will always remain as a dent in the career of Taliban rulers.
