The Taliban held power in Afghanistan from 1995 to 2001.  Pashtun in origin, they were headed by Mullah Mohammed Omar.  His government redesignated the country the “Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan".  Notoriously, they held public executions, banned kite flying and television, and forced all women to wear the burqa in public.
