Talibans! What! You don.t believe! But it is a historical fact.
Let us try to find out! Who they are...
Jacob had 12 sons and one daughter from 2 wives and 2 handmates. Jacob migrated to Egypt with his family to join his lost son "Yousaf" who, at that time was a richman and enjoying a high rank in Egypt.
They called themselves as Benie Israel.
Originally the term" Children of Israel", was used for the descendants of 12 sons who were suffering in bondage in Egypt and got freedom after 400 years of slavery through prophet Moses in 1292 BC.
They established a large Hebrew Kingdom under the leadership of David and solomon - the greats, and ruled on Palestine & Syria around.1000 - 930 BC. which was internally divided into two seperate states namely Judea and Israel.
Assyrians destroyed the Northen State ( Israel ) in 720 BC and after 136 years Nabuchad Nezzar , the King of Babylonea invaded Judea, destroyed Jerusalem & the Temple of Solomon completely in 586 BC and captured 44,000 Hebrews as slaves / POWs who were drove to the northen regions of Babylon - Neshapur and Khurasan.
Cyrus the Great (538-629 BC) conquard Bablonea and granted freedom to the Hebrew prisioners but very few chosed to return Judea with Azra and Zerbabul in 516BC.
Now Judea was open for all nations and Hebrews were mixed with other races and lost their old identity " Israelites " and re-introduced themselves as "Jew" being the sons of Juda ben Jacob!. Where as the Hebrew Prisonors kept themselve united in Hebrew Tribal System as "Israelites"!
They were the Lost Sheeps of Israelites. Jesus said " I am sent to no one but to the lost sheeps of Israel" They accepted Christianity but did not change their tribal customs and behaviour. Lateron they accepted Islam in 7th Century around 650 AD.but still amintained their Tribal Customs and behaviours. The majority of these tribes now lives in Afhganistan and Pakistan but they are also found in India. They call themselves as Afghan, Pushtoon and Muslim-Taliban as an identity and honour! Believe it or not but it is the reality told and written by their elders.
God knows the best!
All Pushtons are not Taliban. They are the fraction of the Afghan society and represent themselve as the saviours of Afghan society and its morality. Taliban are strict in followup of Islam as well as their Tribal Customs and react firmly ...No matter you like it or not!
These Talibans took major part in Soviet wars (1979-89) with the help of USA and defeated the Soviet Army aggresions.
The Afghan nation has a glorious past; they were learned people and were recognized as "Wisemen from the East" in Gospel of Meth. They were well aware of the Comming of Messiah.
In Islam they became the front line of defence against foreign invasions on Islamic countries. Afghan bear a title of "Khan" because of their natural bravery.
Afghan Nation prduced great Muslim kings, Sofies and religious scholars who served Islam in Sub-continent;
Shabudding Ghori& Muhammad Ghori conquered the whole of Punjab, Rajisthan and western India and establised a firm Muslim state in India. Sher shah Suri defeated the Mughal King Humaiyun and established Suri kingdom in India.
The present Indian film stars; Delip Kumar (real name Yousaf), Shahrukh khan, Aamir Khan, Salman Khan belong to Afghan / Pushton tribes!Source(s): www.IslamReligion.com / www.IRF.net> < Peace tv >
