51. Sure, and the control they seek is religious - a theocracy

Not every act needs a distinct scriptural motivation, but the organization seeks to impose religious control on Afghanistan. That they impose harsh punishments for crimes secular and religious has never been in dispute, but I hadn't thought anyone disputed the religious nature of the group itself and their desire for a uniformly fundamentalist regime either. Are they maybe just a bunch of apatheistic secular chaps now?
