The Taliban movement is a social force that emerged in the social base of Afghanistan. The life conditions of the Taliban, which is present in the socio-cultural structure of the Afghan society, have been merged with the support of external factors. This study focuses on the assumption that the Taliban movement is a social power that is generated by the conflict between ethnic groups of Afghan society. Whether the Post-Taliban era has any relation with the gaps and divisions between ethnic groups in Afghanistan will be examined through screening and analysis. As a result, it was concluded that the post-Taliban, as a social force in Afghanistan, caused new structures by using religious/sectarian and historical conflicts and contradictions between ethnic groups.
