The people of Afghanistan have began to protest against the Taliban government by removing the mounted Taliban flag and replacing it with Afghan flag in Jalalabad.
Recall that TheNewsBeam reported that the Taliban fighters on Sunday, 15th August, 2021 invaded the outskirts of Kabul, demanding transfer of power.
Unfortunately, the US president, Joe Biden, ordered the withdrawal of the US army who have been protecting the country from the militant for over 18 years.
Following this withdrawal, the Taliban fighters were able to gain entry into the presidential palace, causing the Afghanistan president, Ashraf Gani to flee the country.
Since the takeover by Taliban, the current government have been reported to have disrespected the rights of citizens, especially those of women and children.
Reacting to this incident, some Afghans have taken to rebellion against the Taliban rule by protesting.
During the protest on Tuesday, at least 2 people have been reported dead and 8 others injured as the Taliban soldiers fired into crowd and beat up protesters.
While some protesters ran away, others stayed and climbed a building where they removed a white Taliban flag and replaced it with the red, black, and green Afghanistan flag.
Afghans are also protesting against Taliban rule in Khost and Asadabad.
It was also reported that journalists covering the protest were beaten up by Taliban fighters.
