It is interesting that the name of this new Prime Minister of Afghanistan is registered as a terrorist in the United Nations list. Not only them, the names of most of the members who hold important responsibilities in this cabinet are either in the terrorist list or reward has been declared on them. Above all, if seen only from the Taliban’s point of view, their promise that they will now move forward in the new era with more openness and trying to take everyone along. Although within the framework of Islamic laws, the Taliban, who talked about giving all rights to women, could not find a single place for women in this 33-member cabinet. Of these 33, 30 are Pashtuns.
Clearly, the talk of representing other communities in power has not progressed beyond word of mouth. More importantly, for India and other countries, this so-called government is clearly dominated by the radical faction in general and the ISI of Pakistan in particular. The forced to accept the post of deputy prime minister of Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, who has been conducting negotiations with the international community in Doha and head of the Taliban’s political wing in Qatar, shows that the group’s status in the government has diminished. This group had given all assurances to the international fraternity. It is also important to note that it was the person who was appointed as the Prime Minister who issued the order to demolish the Buddha statue of Bamiyan in 2001.
Sirajuddin Haqqani, appointed as the Minister of Internal Affairs, is not only the head of the Haqqani network and is known to be close to the ISI, but also involved in several attacks on Indians and Indian interests, including the 2008 attack on the Indian embassy in Kabul. been going. There is also a truth that this new Taliban government now has to move forward while dealing with difficult challenges in the new circumstances. In such a situation, it will be a matter to be seen that how and how much this new government, which is affected by the old image, old faces and old influences of the ISI mark, can innovate.
