The Taliban, as a fundamentalist movement with its attendant military organization of an estimated 200,000 fighters, is Deobandi Islamist revivalist movement within the Sunni Islam in Afghanistan. It is currently waging jihad within the country.

But for us it was an ideal vacation, and we remember the people, landscape and food with gusto."
