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. The primary aim of jihad is not the conversion of non-Muslims to Islam by force, but rather the expansion and defense of the Islamic state, the submission of non-Muslims to the authority of that state.
