  1. taleban

    The Taliban, also spelled as Taleban, is a fundamentalist Islamic political and military group that emerged in Afghanistan in the mid-1990s. The term 'Taliban' translates to mean 'students'. Originating from the Pashtun ethnic group, which is the largest and most dominant ethnic group in Afghanistan, the Taliban group is driven by rigid interpretations of Sunni Islam and Pashtun tribal codes of honor, and aims to implement a strict version of Sharia, or Islamic law, in areas they control. They became internationally known for their treatment of women and for destroying cultural artifacts. The group was in power in Afghanistan from 1996 until 2001, when it was overthrown by US-led forces; however, it has remained an active insurgency group since then.
