Taliban
The word Taliban is from the Persian Talib, meaning student. The Taliban were originally Afghan students in Islamic religious schools, or madrassas, in Pakistan. In 1993, they formed into a militant political group and returned to Afghanistan, bringing their own particular version of conservative Sunni Islam to that country. By 1996, they had become the dominant military and political force in the country, capturing the capital, Kabul.
