Taliban fighters gained control of most parts of Afghanistan including the capital Kabul a few days ago. After the takeover, the men found a new way to relax.
They were seen taking rides in amusement parks and working out in gyms. Social media was flooded with their videos.
Here are some of them.

Trillions spent in Afghanistan and all we needed to do was throw a carnival fair to pacify the Taliban. https://t.co/TelDkbVkgl— Prison Mitch (@MidnightMitch) August 17, 2021

I gotta say, watching the Taliban go on rides at the amusement park really improved my mood about the whole living in an apocalypse while a power vacuum just opened in the middle east.— 🚋 Remember to tip your streetcar – Yaksisoba🐃🍜 (@yaksisoba) August 16, 2021

The Taliban look like they’re having a really good time. Going to the amusement park, riding roller coasters, bumper karts, eating ice cream, working out at the palace. Besides, you know, the horrible everything else and geopolitical human rights nightmare, it sounds kind of lit.— Autism Capital 🧩 (@AutismCapital) August 17, 2021
