The Taliban has announced its first caretaker government in Afghanistan. Habibullah Akhundzada is the head of this government. At the same time, Hasan Akhund has been placed as the head of the government. Abdul Ghani Baradar, who was being named as the head of the Taliban government till now, has been appointed as Hasan’s deputy. Surprisingly, there is no name of Mulla Umar’s son Mulla Yakub in this government.
However, now that the power has been handed over to Hasan Akhund, it becomes very important for us to know who is this man who will defeat Baradar and Yakub. Let us tell you that Hasan Akhund is also related to Kandahar. Kandahar is a stronghold of the Taliban. Most of the big leaders of this organization belong from here. From here the power of Taliban has been running. Because of this, it is the center of power of the Taliban.
Taliban’s supreme leader Habibullah Akhundzada is also from Kandahar and Baradar is also from here. According to Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, Akhundzada is in Kandahar. Hassan Akhund is one of the founders of the Taliban’s armed movement. Apart from this, he is also very close to Akhundzada. Let us tell you that Akhund is also the current head of the Taliban’s Rehbari Shura, which in a way works like a government. Because of this also his stature is very big in the Taliban. It is from here that every decision of the Taliban gets its final seal. Hassan made an official visit to Pakistan in August 1996. At that time he also had talks with the then Prime Minister of Pakistan Nawaz Sharif.
The Taliban has also handed over the command to this man because he has experience of power. In fact, between 1996-2001, when the Taliban government was in Afghanistan, he was also the foreign minister of this government. Apart from this, Hasan also held the post of Deputy Prime Minister at that time. However, at that time only three countries including Pakistan, Saudi Arabia had recognized this government.
Akhundzada is the highest rank in this Taliban government and will be called Amir-ul-Afghanistan. In this government, Khairullah Khairkhwa has been made Information Minister, Abdul Hakim Law and Justice Minister, Sher Mohammad Abbas Stanikzai as Deputy Foreign Minister. Zabihullah will be Mujahid’s deputy information minister. Akhundzada has asked the caretaker government to implement Sharia law.
