Kabul, 16/8: On Sunday 15 August 2021, the Taliban have captured the whole of Afghanistan. The Afghan army has agreed to a deal with the Taliban. President Ashraf Ghani has fled Afghanistan to Tajikistan. Vice President Amrulla Saleh has also left the country. In such a situation, once again the power of Taliban in Afghanistan is being considered fixed. With this, the situation seems to be clear regarding the name of the new President. According to the news of English news channel CNN-News18, the Taliban’s Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar is likely to be declared the new President of Afghanistan.
Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar is one of the four people who started the Taliban movement in Afghanistan in 1994. Till the end of 2012, there was little discussion about Mulla Baradar. However, his name topped the list of Taliban prisoners whom the Afghans wanted to release to encourage peace talks.
Although he was released by the Pakistani government in 2018 after a deal with the Taliban, it was not clarified whether he would be kept in Pakistan or sent to a third country. Mullah Baradar’s importance can be understood from the fact that at the time of his arrest, he was considered one of the most trusted commanders of Taliban leader Mullah Mohammad Omar.
