The 'war' has started amongst themselves under the top leadership of Taliban terrorists who have captured Afghanistan at gunpoint. Mullah Baradar and the Pakistan Haqqani network have become the center of controversy under the Talibani leadership.
Kabul: The top leadership of the Taliban has started a war amongst themselves after capturing Afghanistan at gunpoint. Mullah Baradar and the Pakistan-backed Haqqani network have become the center of controversy under the Taliban leadership.
The Taliban themselves have now admitted that a heated argument broke out between Mullah Baradar and Khalil-ur-Rahman, a notorious minister of the Haqqani network. Not only this, a scuffle broke out between the supporters of both factions. Angered by this, Mullah Baradar has now gone to Kandahar, which is called the birthplace of the Taliban.
Let us know what is the reason for this ongoing war inside the Taliban.
There is speculation in social media that Mullah Baradar has either been killed or badly injured after a clash with the leaders of the Haqqani network. Mullah Baradar has not been seen in public since the announcement of the interim Taliban government. This is adding to the speculation further.
On the other hand, Taliban released an audio which is claimed to be a voice message from Mullah Baradar. In the audio message, Mullah Baradar has claimed that he is fine and is in Kandahar.
Know reason for dispute between Baradar and Haqqani
On the other hand, even after the announcement of the interim Afghan government, Taliban's supreme leader and commander-in-chief Haibatullah Akhundzada has not yet appeared in public. It is being said by the Taliban that he is also present in Kandahar and will soon appear in public.
Mullah Baradar was the head of the Taliban's political office in Qatar's capital, Doha. This is where the talks between the US and the Taliban started and finally the agreement was reached. After this such discussion had started that only Baradar would become the PM of Afghanistan. However, this did not happen and he had to be satisfied with the post of Deputy PM.
After this, the news of increasing dispute between Mulla Baradar and Haqqani network intensified. The news of Mulla Baradar's disappearance got air when Mullah Baradar was not seen during the very important visit of the Foreign Minister of Qatar.
Afghanistan's senior journalist Hezbollah Khan says that at the root of this whole controversy is the reason for the victory over the US and NATO. The Taliban leadership believes that they have won over America because of diplomacy and on the other hand, the Haqqani network claims that we got victory over Afghanistan through war.
Hezbollah Khan says that this is the main reason for the dispute between Taliban leaders and the Haqqani network. Both sides are demanding to increase their rights through their respective claims. Due to this their differences are increasing. The strings of serious differences in the Taliban leadership are also related to the 2016 Shura.
Under this an agreement was reached in which Mullah Yakub, son of Taliban founder Mullah Omar, and Haqqani network leader Sirajuddin Haqqani were made deputy leaders. Both of them are now in the new government and Mulla Yakub has got the Defense Ministry and Sirajuddin Haqqani has got the Home Ministry.
However, after the visit of Pakistani intelligence agency ISI chief General Faiz to Kabul, the Qatar faction has now been sidelined in the interim government. For this reason Mulla Baradar and Sher Mohammad are angry. Pakistan has now indirectly formed its government in Afghanistan with the help of the Haqqani network and has captured important departments.
