Afghan Acting Government Announced

Click to see full-size image

On September 7, the Taliban announced the names of several members of a new interim government in Afghanistan. It will be led by Mohammad Hasan Akhund.

Hasan Akhund was the head of the group’s decision-making body the Quetta Shura or chief council that was formed in Pakistan by Taliban’s leaders following the U.S. invasion in 2001. In 1996-2001 he was foreign minister and then deputy prime minister in the Taliban regime.

He was born in Kandahar and he has Pashtun lineage from Ahmad Shah Durrani, who was the founder of modern Afghanistan in 1700s. Mullah Akhund was close to the group’s first leader Mullah Mohammad Omar, being described as his “close associate and political adviser”.

Mullah Akhund is included in a UN sanctions list.

Mullah Mohammad Hasan Akhund

Abdul Ghani Baradar who was previously said to become a new Afghanistan’s leader by some reports will be the country’s acting Deputy Minister. Baradar is a head of the Taliban’s political office.

Acting Second Deputy Prime Minister is Abdul Salam Hanafi, who was deputy head of the group’s political office.

The post of Afghanistan’s acting Interior Minister will be held by Sirajuddin Haqqani, son of the founder of the Haqqani network. Haqqani is one of the most wanted terrorists of the FBI. He is suspected of involvement in a terrorist attack in 2008 in Kabul that resulted in deaths of US citizens. A reward of $5 million is promised for information about his location, which would lead to his capture.

Amir Khan Muttaqi, a Taliban’s negotiator in Doha, former representative of the movement’s leadership, was named acting Foreign Minister.

Acting Defence Minister is Mullah Mohammad Yaqoob, son of Taliban founder Mullah Omar. He has led the Taliban’s military operations since 2020.

Hedayatullah Badri will be acting Minister of Finance, and Mohammad Hanif is acting Minister of Economy.

Mohammad Idris was appointed the acting head of the Central Bank of Afghanistan.

Acting head of intelligence is Abdul Haq Wasik, a former Guantanamo prisoner (2002-2014), who was exchanged to US servicemen captured by Haqqani militants.

The role of the Taliban leader Mullah Haibatullah Akhunzada in a new government was not revealed.

During the official conference, chief spokesperson of the Taliban Zabihullah Mujahid named 33 members of “the new Islamic government”. He added that the remaining posts will be announced after careful deliberation.

The spokesman explained that it is an “acting” government and that the Taliban is going to “try to take people from other parts of the country”. A lot of members of the new acting  government are Pushtuns.

The Taliban had constantly claimed that the new Afghanistan’s government would be inclusive. At the same time, the group said that women would unlikely hold top level positions.

The acting government was finally announced after several Taliban’s claims that were saying that the new leader of Afghanistan would be Mullah Haibatullah Akhunzada or Abdul Ghani Baradar. However, the appointment of Mohammad Hasan Akhund seems to be a compromise between the Taliban’s political and military officials.

Exactly man, iran should do something about these Taliban scum.

US & EU are Zion slaves

Don’t worry they are fuked and they have no choice but to follow Russia, China, Iran, and Pakistan’s demand, for good, Afghanistan is a poor country and doesn’t have much export. Didn’t you see how happy those Sunnis backward were to get aids from the UN. There were begging for more as well btw.

There are more terrorist attacks in Pakistan – Pastunes areas, Thanks to the Taliban for freeing ex-Al-Qaeda and Daesh members.
China wants those pigs to start killing Daesh-K and don’t work with any other terrorist groups, mainly ETIP.
Russia doesn’t want Daesh-k or any other terrorist groups to attack their allies as well.
As for Iran, they know how the Taliban (group) works and they deal with them by all means.

It is funny seeing and hearing their leaders suck a different cuck on Intel stage and at home, he sucks his own cuck, lol.

The only country that these dogs can attack is Pakistan and cause problems but that would be it.

Time for Taliban to liberate Afghanistan land back from Iran …. next Kashmir on the line. inshallah


but hattila of punjab since when is Afghanistan under Iran?……lol

US & EU are Zion slaves

The Osama cuck sucker LMFAO,

“We will never give up Osama [bin Laden] at any price,” Mullah Hassan Akhund said in Oct. 1999. He was responding to a U.N. demand. See below.

Today, Akhund was named the “head of state” for the Taliban’s resurrected Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

Hahahhahahaha I wonder what happened to Osama the goat fuker, that Wahhabi cunt burning in hell for good. This goat fuker end up in hell as well.

US & EU are Zion slaves

Also, Haibatullah Akhundzada: Shadowy Taliban supreme leader whose son was suicide bomber.
“Akhundzada’s son was a moderate suicide bomber though, not a hardline suicide bomber.”

These clowns are going to run one of the poorest country in the world, LMFAO.
Pakistan morons watch out, and Turkey better stops playing nice and block outsiders.
Or you know, one of Afghanistan’s leader’s son might blow up Turkey.

US & EU are Zion slaves

“Stockholm Syndrome: “Gen. Frank McKenzie, commander of U.S. Central Command, and Rear Adm. Peter Vasely, head of U.S. forces on the ground in Afghanistan, have referred to the Taliban as “our Afghan partners,” according to two defense officials.”

To those fukers how to dance like an ape, you fuks better know that Al-Qaeda is back…I hope most of you are in Pakistan btw.

L du Plessis

The scum in the West Govs are the same, just more deceiving.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
