Former Afghan Intelligence Chief claims, Sayed Hamid Gilani, the leader of Mahaz-e-Milli political party, is trying to release Anas Haqqani, a key member of Haqqani network who is currently under the government’s captivity. 

Rahmatullah Nabil said that Gilani is attempting to free Anas – who also brother of Sirajuddin Haqqani, the leader of Haqqani Network – with help of a key official of the Afghan government. 

“Sayed Hamid Gilani has repeatedly taken a dangerous Haqqani senior commander named “Shir Khan” from Islamabad of Pakistan to Kabul inside his own vehicle. He has arranged meetings with “Anas Haqqani,” Nabil claimed in a Facebook post. 

The ex-NDS Chief’s remarks come days after Mr. Gilani publicly claimed that the leadership of the Taliban is in Afghanistan not Pakistan.

However, Gilani on Tuesday rejected the claims made by ex-NDS Chief. He said that his comments were misrepresented. 

“I reject this, I am not aiming to release Anas, I request the media outlets to do not follow up these controversial issues, what I have done, was for the sack of god and 30 million oppressed Afghan nation,” he said. 

Afghan intelligence operatives have arrested Anas Haqqani along with another senior leader of Haqqani Network in 2014.  Anas has been sentenced to death by Afghan courts. However, the courts’ decision is yet to be implemented.

Separately, Nabil asserted that he has accurate information regarding the recent deadly attacks in capital Kabul, adding that these attacks were carried out by the Haqqani Network but the so-called Islamic State or Daesh has taken the responsibility.  

Gilani’s remarks on the Taliban’s leadership, have followed  serious criticism of some political figures, MPs, and the government officials.

Abdullah Abdullah, the Chief Executive said that the Taliban’s bases and leadership are located outside of the country and such remarks will affect the credibility of these figures.

Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA) has said the international community should not sentence the people of Afghanistan to “collective punishment and starvation because they failed in their mission in Afghanistan.”

In an interview with Sky News, Afghan Foreign Ministry Spokesman Abdul Qahar Balkhi blamed the west for the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan.

“From our part again if we hadn’t taken the measures that we have taken and mitigated the effects of this humanitarian catastrophe that is taking place here in Afghanistan I think we would have been in a far far worse place at this moment,” Balkhi said.

He also reiterated IEA’s calls for the recognition of the current government in the country.

He stated that the IEA government is a responsible actor, “so the politicizing of recognition is only endangering the lives of the common people.”

Referring to Afghan women’s rights for education, Balkhi stated that girls are attending private institutions, “from primary all the way to university levels they’re open for girls and women.”

“I don’t know what the fear is, I absolutely do not know why, I do not understand any of the fear…. girls not going to school in their personal capacity or due to fear whether rational or irrational is their own personal prerogative.”

“From our side, the policy of the government has been very clear, there are absolutely no restrictions on any girls or women attending schools from primary all the way to higher education,” Balkhi said.

Balkhi, meanwhile, said that the Islamic Emirate forces respect Afghan women and they do not “threaten women ever.”

“Our security [forces] do not approach women specifically because this is an Afghan society we have a lot of respect for women we do not threaten women ever.”
