The sudden takeover of the Taliban turned out to be a chaotic and panicked situation in the country, as getting scared by looking back at their retrospective rule (1996-2001) and the atrocities Taliban had committed throughout the country and on other soils as well.

The majority of the people tried to leave the country, but that was hardened as Taliban fighters seized most of the parts of the country including the Airport. Even people with proper travel documents and awaiting flight faced too much difficulty.

According to The Telegraph, the Air Force plane made an emergency landing after a body was discovered in the landing gear.

Taliban faction after taking control over Afghanistan promised the people that there would be no oppression or reprisals against the civilians, yet people due to the fear and panic trying to flee out of the country. As there had no other feasible way left for people to leave the country, the airport secured and protected by the US military forces was only the reasonable and feasible way people thought of.

Anwar Zaki’s death was confirmed by General Directorate for Sport.

By the comments of the people who were close to Anwar, it says that He was loved by the people close to him.

His coach and mentor Mobin Mohammad told that “Anwar was an excellent player and a jolly and very good human being”. He also added that recently Anwar posted a picture of himself on the Facebook account quoting it with, “football is my love”.

One of his teammates Rahil Abid told, “His bones and all his body were smashed”.

Reaction after Zaki Anwari‘s death

The International Federation of Professional Footballers tweeted for Anwar Zaki, “deepest and sincerest condolences family, friends, and everybody close to the young Afghan national team football player”.

President Biden, dealing with the most important political disaster of his term, defended the chaotic withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan amid the fast disintegration of the country’s government, taking obligation for finishing the 20years struggle however deflecting blame for the “tough and messy” occasions of latest days.

US President Joe Biden has been pressed domestically and internationally to explain why his administration appeared unprepared for the Taliban’s swift attack – and how US forces are withdrawing from Afghanistan.


Biden Under-fire

 Biden after being under pressure said that the further US military presence for a year or five years would have made any difference in Afghanistan.

“An extra year or five years of US military presence would have made no difference if Afghan troops couldn’t or wouldn’t hold their own country,” said the president”.

Biden has also been chastised by the US senators, who claim he has failed to establish an effective departure strategy from Afghanistan.

Afghan leaders blamed for Taliban takeover

President Biden blamed Afghan officials who “are not willing to fight for themselves” in his first broadcast speech since the Taliban declared victory in Afghanistan.

President Biden tweeted, “unfortunately, the current developments demonstrate that no amount of American military force would ever result in a stable, cohesive, and secure Afghanistan. What is going on right now may have happened five years ago — or fifteen years from now”.

Many Afghans have attempted to emigrate because of memories of the Taliban’s violent government in the 1990s, which saw music and television prohibited, individuals stoned to death, and women confined to their houses. This is the reason why innocent folks like Anwar Zaki denied living under such oppressed rule of the Taliban.

Afghan’s and a better future (never fulfilled dream)

Zaki Anwari, a member of the national youth squad, was among the victims of the US military plane,” the team said.

They further said that he attempted to fly to America to “find a brighter future” by riding on the wheels of a US airliner. The squad wrote, “May his soul rest in peace.”
