Afghanistan: Former Vice President Dostum’s son kidnapped by Taliban- The Taliban is now also targeting the family of politicians to establish their dominance in Afghanistan. According to the report of News Unique, the Taliban has kidnapped the son of former Vice President of Afghanistan Abdul Rashid Dostum from Jawazzan Airport. President Ashraf Ghani had met Abdul Rashid Dostum a day earlier on Wednesday itself.

Dostum is a prominent leader of northern Afghanistan. He founded the Northern Alliance in Afghanistan in the 90s. According to the information, Taliban fighters have also abducted some Afghan soldiers along with their son. However, this incident has not yet been confirmed by the Taliban or the government of Afghanistan.

The warlord is called Dostum

Abdul Rashid Dostum became the Vice President of Afghanistan in 2014 and held this position for more than 6 years. Dostum is also known as Warlord. Warlords are those who, with the help of America, prepared themselves and continued the war against the Taliban. Warlord Dostum has also been accused of committing war crimes in Afghanistan. Dostum is believed to have been instrumental in helping the US military topple the Taliban government in Afghanistan after the 9/11 attacks.

Dostum was getting his treatment in Turkey for several months. He has recently returned to Kabul in view of the increasing penetration of the Taliban in the northern areas of Afghanistan.

‘The Taliban will be wiped out

Dostum said after meeting with President Ashraf Ghani on Wednesday that the Taliban would be wiped out from the northern parts of the country. He said the Taliban had no escape route. Dostum’s militia group is fighting a war against the Taliban with the Afghan army. Even before this, during 1990 and 2001, Dostum eliminated the Taliban from Balkh province.
