The new Taliban government in Afghanistan is going to be announced today. Who will get a place in the new government led by Mullah Baradar, it is not clear, but some faces can be seen in the new Taliban government.
It is being told that Mullah Mohammad Yacoub, son of Taliban founder Mullah Omar, Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanakzai will also hold important positions in the new government. According to the information received about the formation of the new Taliban government, Sher Abbas Stankzai can be made foreign minister.
Hamid Karzai may get a place
There is a constant churning on what will be the role of other leaders in the Baradar government. It also remains to be seen whether leaders like former President Hamid Karzai and former Chief Executive Dr Abdullah Abdullah are included in the government or not. The picture is yet to be cleared on both these names.
The rift between these departments continues
There are reports of rifts between Mullah Yacob, the son of Taliban founder Mullah Omar, and Sirajuddin Haqqani over the control of troops and arms. According to intelligence officials, there is a difference of opinion between the two regarding justice, religious affairs and internal security departments.
Claim of possession of Panjshir
Shortly before the formation of the government, the Taliban also claimed to have captured the Panjshir Valley. However, former Vice-President Amrullah Saleh has rejected the Taliban’s claim. Amrulla Saleh said, ‘There are reports going on in some media that I have fled from my country. This is absolutely baseless. This is my voice, I am speaking to you from my base, from Panjshir Valley.
Comment on minorities in India
Before the formation of the new government, the Taliban has given a big statement about India. Taliban spokesperson Suhail Shaheen has commented on (Muslim) minorities in India. He said that if you (India) give yourself the right to raise voice for the minorities in my country Afghanistan, then why should we also not have the right to raise voice for the minorities in your country? This statement of Taliban spokesman Suhail Shaheen has come when the Taliban government is going to be formed in Afghanistan. Now everyone’s eyes are on what will be the form of the new government of Afghanistan.
