Inside the Taliban is fighting to the point of not being able to form a government?

According to the station NDTV, Mr. Akhund has been the head of the Leadership Council of the Taliban (Rehbari Shura) for the past 20 years, which is listed as a terrorist by the United Nations.

Before 2011, Mr. Akhund held the position of “Minister” in the Taliban government in Afghanistan. However, this Taliban leader is rarely mentioned, mainly with religious influence rather than a military commander.

Hailing from the city of Kandahar, where the Taliban were born, Mr Akhund is said to have close ties to the Taliban’s spiritual leader Sheikh Hibatullah Akhundzada.

Some reports say that Mr. Akhund is one of the founders of the Taliban. The movement is likely to promote Akhund to the position of prime minister of Afghanistan amid growing internal dissension.

Differences between Taliban factions including the Doha Taliban Group led by Mullah Baradar, the Haqqani Network and the Taliban’s Kandahar Group make the formation of a new government in Afghanistan challenging.

Radio NDTV revealed that the Pakistani Intelligence Service (ISI) appears to be “working with the Taliban and laying the groundwork for a new government in Afghanistan”. Last weekend, ISI head Faiz Hameed was in the capital, Kabul, likely to meet with Taliban leaders.

Hundreds of residents of the capital Kabul – Afghanistan took to the streets on September 9 to protest against “Pakistan’s interference in Afghanistan’s affairs”, three weeks after the Taliban took over the country.

The crowd chanted slogans such as “We don’t want a puppet government of Pakistan”, “Pakistan, leave Afghanistan”.

Media reported that the Taliban had to open fire in the air to disperse the protesters, while a number of journalists were arrested.

Manager TOLOnews Lotfullah Najafizada said his colleague, Waheed Ahmady, was arrested by the Taliban in the capital Kabul for filming the protest. Mr. Najafizada contacted the Taliban to ask them to release his colleague.
