“Mentor’s Comments”

  • https://www.thehindu.com/opinion/lead/india-must-directly-engage-with-taliban-20/article35454736.ece
  • In the intro, mention the Taliban’s increasing control over Afghanistan against the backdrop of the US withdrawal.
  • In the body mention reasons for India’s hesitancy in avoiding engaging Taliban such as avoiding Afghanistan government moving towards SCO and China, lack of access to Taliban leadership, past record of violence by Taliban and international criticism it received, the possibility of Pakistan acting against India if India establishes deeper links with Taliban etc. In the reasons for increasing engagement mention international acceptance of Taliban, this time is more than it was in 1996, Taliban too is searching for regional and global partners, the Taliban may seek to balance Pakistan by engaging with India, security of India’s assets in Afghanistan requires India’s engagement there, India needs to open up its congested north-eastern frontier.
  • You can conclude by stating that an open engagement of the Taliban is neither tolerating nor accepting the condemnable atrocities committed by the Taliban.
