Dispute broke out in Rashtrapati Bhavan between Abdul Ghani Baradar and Khalil-ur-Rehman Haqqani – Report

Afghanistan News: Last week, a major dispute broke out between Taliban leaders over the formation of the group’s new government in Afghanistan. The report said that the group’s co-founder Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar and a cabinet member had an argument at Rashtrapati Bhavan. In recent days there have been unconfirmed reports of dissent under the Taliban leadership since Baradar’s disappearance.

A Taliban source told BBC Pashto that a heated argument broke out between Baradar and Khalil ur-Rehman Haqqani (the minister for refugees and a key figure within the militant Haqqani network) as their followers clashed with each other. Taliban sources told the BBC that Baradar left Kabul and fled to the city of Kandahar following the brawl.

According to news agency IANS, the report said that a senior member of the Taliban based in Qatar and a person close to those involved also confirmed that there was an argument at the end of last week. Sources said the debate broke out because the new deputy prime minister Baradar was unhappy with the structure of his interim government.

It has been said that the dispute stems from who among the Taliban should take credit for their victory in Afghanistan. Baradar reportedly believes that the emphasis should be on diplomacy, while members of the Haqqani group and their supporters maintain that victory was achieved through fighting. Meanwhile, the powerful Haqqani network has been linked to some of the most violent attacks in Afghanistan against Afghan forces and their Western allies in recent years. The group has been designated as a terrorist organization by the US.

Its leader Sirajuddin Haqqani is the Home Minister in the new government. Rumors about the outcome have been circulating since late last week, when Baradar – one of the Taliban’s most famous faces – disappeared from the public eye. There were speculations on social media that he might be dead. There has also been speculation about the Taliban’s supreme commander, Hibatullah Akhundzada, who has never been seen in public. He is in charge of the Taliban’s political, military and religious affairs.
