(Ar. Students) Islamic fundamentalist militants who came to power in Afghanistan in 1995 and were expelled from the country a few years later by American and native forces.
The word “Taliban” comes from the Arabic word talib, which means “student.” The organization was founded by Mullah Mohammed Omar, an extremely enigmatic individual who went into hiding in 2001 after the organization's fall from power. Members of the Taliban were originally religious students who developed a very conservative interpretation of Islam and the Sharia, or Islamic law. During Afghanistan's long and bitter civil war, members of the Taliban began a slow rise to power, and the group ultimately took control of most of Afghanistan, promising to put a stop to infighting between various bands of mujahideen, or groups of soldiers led by warlords, to make Afghanistan a safer place.

Idiots who were considered nutcases even by the most extremist interpreter of Sharia law. The Taliban did much stuff that was considered Unislamic, like taxing truckloads of opium under "zakat" (Last time I checked drugs were unislamic), clapping, kite flying and women playing sports. None of these decrees had any basis in the Qur'an or the hadiths.
Man those Taliban guys just decreed that noone is allowed to wear big red hats.

a political movement started back in 1994 in an attempt to stabilize the former Islamic Republic of Afghanistan which was in the middle of severe tribal conflict between the Government and factions of the Mujihadin following the withdrawal of Soviet forces in 1989.

The taliban came to power in 1996 after fighting a massive civil war which forced President Rabbini from power, Its leader was a shadowly figure named Mullah Omar. Once in power Mullah Omar implemented an extremely harsh and absolutely severe - even by fundamentalist islamic standards - form of Shariah Law. Televisions, movie theatres, sports, alcohol, music (except islamic prayer music) and Kite flying where all banned but it was the severe oppression of women and there policy on severely limiting there rights which won them condemnation and criticism.

in March 2001 the Taliban blew up the 2000 year old Buddhist statues in Baymian province and recieved severe condemnation, However it was the 9/11 attacks on the WTC and the Pentagon which began the Talibans downfall, Because they where hiding Al Qaida fugitives including its supreme leader osama bin ladenin undisclosed locations of Afghanistan, The USA Sent troops to hunt down Osama and cripple the taliban regime, as a result rebel pro-us northern alliance forces removed the taliban late in 2001.

today the taliban are crippled but have not been wiped out and mullah omar and his bum chum osama bin laden remain at large.
