Armed governance as a mood of rule, violent competition, and control has characterized the modern history of Afghanistan. The majority of actors participating in determining such a process of governance are militias supported by neighbouring states. The dynamics of Taliban legitimacy, and their disputed leadership, however, is not out of the way from other powerful terrorist groups, suchlike the ISIS, Lashkar-e-Taiba and Central Asian groups. These external actors may also influence the relationship between Taliban and Afghan civilians. Taliban s way of governance has taken place under the conditions of civil war. They have adopted culture of violence, torture and jihad against education of Afghan girls. They haven t relinquished the culture of terrorising civilians. How the Taliban seized power in Kabul is a major question. Contexts of civil war and state weakness are often characterized by situations of governance by terror actors. The failure of Taliban intelligence to provide reliable information about the IS s military strength has raised serious questions about the credibility of their misgovernment. While one of the important functions of an intelligence agency is to provide timely warnings of hostile military action in the battlefield.
