It's been 100 days since the Taliban retook power in Afghanistan and the policies of the new government in Afghanistan has sparked mixed reactions among the people of the war-torn country.

It was mid-August that the former Afghan government collapsed and the Taliban entered the capital Kabul. Now it has been almost a hundred days since the Taliban swept to power. As the people say the new government has upended lives across the country. 

Observers view the collapse of Afghanistan’s economy as the most obvious changes to the country. 95 percent of the people don’t have enough food to eat and more than half of the population are exposed to starvation.

On the other hand, the Taliban keep saying that progress has been made in all areas. The new government is not yet recognized by many countries. The Taliban claim that they are fulfilling their promises and an inclusive government will be formed in the country in near future.

Almost one hundred days on, the people of Afghanistan are still trying to get accustomed to the new rule. It is not clear yet if the Taliban will take the country out of the current problems or not.
