Taliban fighters complain of ‘having to be in the office from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.’, their daily commutes and the boring life since taking over Afghanistan and becoming civil servants, with many admitting that ‘jihad me lack”
- Bloodthirsty soldiers are fed up with their 9-5 jobs and miss the war and misery
- They say they cannot bring their families from their rural homes due to high rents
It has been less than 18 months since cheering Taliban fighters returned to power and overran the Afghan capital as Joe Biden withdrew his troops in a retreat that rocked the world.
But it seems the exhilaration of taking over the war-torn country has worn off for the groaning activists – many are now missing the battlefield and bored of the 9-5 race to lead the impoverished nation.
After decades of war, the bloodthirsty fighters have spoken of their disdain for office life and reminisce about the Taliban’s past and their life which they claim is “free from restriction”.
In a study of bloodthirsty Taliban members who traded a life of war and misery in the mountains for office jobs, the Afghanistan Analysts Network found they weren’t adjusting to the lifestyle civilian typical of office jobs and traffic.
After realizing how daily life works, former soldier Abdul Nafi pretended to miss the war as he complained of spending his life on Twitter instead of roaming the country, causing chaos and an outpouring of blood. The 25-year-old ex-fighter said: “I sometimes miss the jihad life for all the good things it had.

“In our ministry, I have little work to do. Therefore, I spend most of my time on Twitter.
“We are connected to fast Wi-Fi. Many mujahideen, including me, are addicted to the Internet, especially Twitter.
He added: “What I don’t like about Kabul is its traffic and what I fear are its thieves. I keep my pistol on me all the time after the theft of two of our comrades.
Despite sadistic activists imposing draconian rules that prevent women from accessing education and seeing people stoned, whipped and amputated in public, out-of-touch activists seem bored with civilization.
Failing to ruin innocent lives every day seems to have hit Taliban commander Omar Mansurhard hard, as heartless members now have to work for pay instead of traveling the country to find their next victim.
The 32-year-old said: ‘We had a lot of freedom as to where to go, where to stay and whether we should take part in the war.
“These days, you have to get to the office before 8 a.m. and stay until 4 p.m.
“If you don’t go, you’re considered absent, and [the wage for] this day is deducted from your salary.
After dropping the life of a soldier, Mr Mansur, who was born in North Waziristan and grew up in the remote village of Yahya Kheyl about 150 miles southwest of Kabul, became a low-ranking official intermediate.

He says he cannot afford to bring his wife and five children to the capital, due to the high rent of the property.
The ex-commander said: “What I don’t like about Kabul is its ever-increasing traffic blockages.
“Last year it was tolerable but for the past few months it’s been getting more and more crowded.”
Mr Mansur was not the only killing machine to complain about the boring life of traffic and Twitter as ex-sniper Huzaifa recalls the liberating life of war and his boredom doing the same job every day.
The 24-year-old said: “The Taliban used to be free from restrictions, but now we sit in one place, behind a desk and a computer 24/7.
“Life has become so tiring; you do the same things every day.
Like many Taliban “soldiers”, Huzaifa was raised in a rural village and had never visited the capital before.
