When the Taliban showed their strength in the procession in different cities of Afghanistan, there were two types of vehicles, one was the American army’s Humvi and the other was a pickup truck of a particular company. In the pictures, armed Taliban terrorists were seen riding around the city in these trucks.
These trucks of the Japanese company Toyota are famous for their strength. Whether it is the Taliban of today or the Taliban of the year 1999, both of them are seen using these pickup trucks of Toyota company. These pickup trucks may not have been made for the rough and mountainous terrain of Afghanistan, but the Taliban change the engines of these trucks to make them workable in Afghanistan.
When the Taliban took control of Afghanistan in 1996, Toyota Hilux trucks carrying weapons entered the Afghan President’s office. These trucks were extensively used by the Taliban for patrolling during the enforcement of Sharia law in Afghanistan.
Similar pickup trucks were parked at different places, in which Taliban terrorists used to keep an eye on the people coming and going. Twenty years later, the Taliban are still using the same pickup trucks they did twenty years ago.
By sitting in these Toyota trucks, the Taliban used to take people to execute them to death. These trucks, which have become a symbol of the Taliban, spoiled the company’s image so much that the company ordered an investigation into how the pickup trucks of the Toyota company fall into the hands of terrorists. The company has also recently made an announcement regarding Toyota’s most special and best-selling model Toyota Land Cruiser.
On August 2, the company has launched a new model of Land Cruiser, which costs more than Rs 34 lakh. The company has said that any company or person who buys this vehicle will have to sign a bond with the company that he cannot sell this SUV to anyone else for a year.
According to the company, there is a lot of demand for Toyota Land Cruiser in foreign countries and many people sell these vehicles in such places for big money which are not good in terms of safety.
Now if a person sells Toyota’s vehicles to any terrorist organization, then a provision has been made to fine him. According to the company, such models of Toyota are very popular among human rights organizations because they can walk on any type of land and mountain, but their access to terrorists is also becoming a headache for the company. According to the company, in the last 40 years, they have supplied 1.5 lakh vehicles to the Red Cross and the United Nations.
According to the company, human rights organizations work in many developing countries and there are also such terrorist groups. In such countries, Toyota’s pickup trucks are stolen and delivered to terrorist organizations.
