For the first time since the the Taliban were removed from power in Afghanistan 15 years ago, the mostly Shi’ite Hazara community have expressed support for the Taliban.

This is mostly because of supposed nationalistic sentiment rather than some unified jihad.

When Afghanistan was under Taliban leadership, the Hazaras suffered massacres, genocides and pogrom attempts by the radical Sunni group.
