Recently captured by the Taliban, Afghanistan would now be ruled by a council, with no democracy for its citizens.
After the Afghanistan Government collapsed, the Taliban force is now all set to take over Afghanistan and its Capital City Kabul. Likely to be governed by Islamist group’s Supreme Leader Haibatullah Akhundzada, the nation would follow Sharia rule.
In a statement to the media, a senior member of the group Waheedullah Hashimi said, “We will not discuss what type of political system we should apply in Afghanistan because it is clear. It is Sharia law and that is it.” He further added, “There will be no democratic system at all because it does not have any base in our country.”
With the interviews and statements of the Taliban leaders, it is expected that the new power module would be similar to the governance during Taliban’s leadership in 1996-2001.
The Taliban force would also appoint a President, who would be senior to the council, ruling and governing Afghanistan. Mr. Akhundzada would likely play the role above the head of the council, who would be akin to the President. Mr. Hashimi said, “Maybe his [Mr. Akhundzada’s] deputy will play the role of President.”
According to sources, the Taliban’s supreme leader has three deputies: Mr. Mawlavi Yaqoob, son of Mullah Omar, Mr. Sirajuddin Haqqani, leader of the powerful militant Haqqani network and Mr. Abdul Ghani Baradar. These leaders also head the political office in Doha and are one of the founding members of the group.
The Taliban are continuously holding several meetings and are planning their power structure to rule Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, the Indian Government and the United States of America (U.S.A.,) Government are continuously working on rescue operations to save their respective stranded citizens in Afghanistan amid the ongoing violence.
