The Taliban has given the responsibility of Home Minister in the new government of Afghanistan to Sirajuddin Haqqani. Sirajuddin Haqqani is included in the list of wanted terrorists of America and the FBI has kept a bounty of 10 million on him.
The Taliban have announced a new government in Afghanistan. Many wanted names are also included in the list of new ministers. Sirajuddin Haqqani, who has been given the responsibility of the Ministry of Home Affairs, is the most wanted for America.
The Taliban’s chief spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, told a news conference in Kabul that Sirajuddin Haqqani, the son of the founder of the Haqqani network, would be the new interior minister. The new Home Minister is included in the list of most wanted terrorists of the US agency FBI.
According to the FBI’s website, the agency has put up a reward of US$10 million for those directly reporting Sirajuddin Haqqani. Sirajuddin was believed to have lived in Pakistan. It has close ties with the Taliban and Al Qaeda. This information of the FBI has now been proved correct with the formation of the government.
Sirajuddin is wanted for the attack on a hotel in Kabul. Six people, including a US citizen, were killed in the attack. He participated in cross-border attacks against US and coalition forces in Afghanistan.
According to the FBI, Haqqani was also involved in planning an attempted assassination of Afghan President Hamid Karzai in 2008. Its Wanted poster is still present on the FBI website. The Haqqani network has close ties to al-Qaeda and has been involved in several suicide attacks.
Let us tell you that the Taliban has announced Mullah Hassan Akhund as the new PM of Afghanistan. Two deputy PMs have been made in this government. Mullah Baradar and Abdul Salam Hanafi will take over this responsibility. The name of Mullah Hassan Akhund himself is included in the UN’s Terror List. He was also imprisoned in 2010.
Mullah Omar’s son Mullah Mohammad Yacoub has been made Defense Minister. It is not yet clear what role the Taliban’s supreme leader, Mullah Haibatullah Akhundzada, will play in the government. He has not been seen or heard in public since the Taliban took over. The new head of government, Akhund, has been close to Akhunzada for 20 years.
The Taliban has formed a new government on the lines of Iran. There are 33 ministers in this government. After the visit of Pakistan’s intelligence agency ISI chief, the form of government changed and Haqqani was made the interior minister in the government.
The Taliban have repeatedly tried to reassure Afghans and the world that they are not the Taliban of two decades ago. Which was known for cruel punishment and banning of women and girls from public life. However, the Taliban’s promise has proved to be hollow for the past several days. The Taliban have killed many people amid claims of peace.
