The Movement of Taliban.
Afghanistan occupies a very important geographical position in the Asian sub-continent from here Pakistan, India, China, Sri Lanka, the Gulf states and ArabianPeninsula are at an accessible distance.When Russia launched its programme of colonization and expansion, it established itsgovernment over many small countries. The governing force behind this move wasthe Russian ideology. The countries Russia Seized through aggression and blood-shed, it implemented its beliefs over them at once. Thus they forcibly convertedinnumerable millions into Communists.Mean while, material and ideological links brought Russia and India closer to eachother. Thus potentially, India became a headache for China and Pakistan. Russia drewover to its side Afghanistan too, in order to gain direct advantages as well as to create problems for Pakistan.History is a witness therefore, of Afghanistan's negative attitude towards Pakistan.Afghanistan was always at the forefront in generating anti-Pakistan propaganda too.Another thing which deeply troubled Russia was the non-availability of hot water inits region.

And then the atrocities perpetrated byRussia against the Afghan people can hardly be put in words. Masajid and Madariswere laid waste, `Ulema, Talabah and thee pious people were mercilessly killed or imprisoned. Khanqahs' and reformatory centres were bulldozed. Houses weredemolished, burying people alive. Tanks wrecked havoc and destruction upon thedefenceless Afghan people. Islam was made fun of, the Holy Quraan desecrated and burned. Women children were kidnapped and dishonoured.On the border of Pakistan, the Russian troops gathered information from the peopleon how best to reach Karachi and Gawadar.
