Yes, it is being talked about here that the biggest enemy of the Taliban and the Vice President of Afghanistan, Amrulla Saleh. Saleh has declared himself the President of Afghanistan after Ashraf Ghani fled the country. It is the same Saleh who often attacks Pakistan and is a close friend of India. Not only this, the Taliban have also tried to kill him many times. Irrespective of all this, Saleh has again declared a war against the Taliban. Let us know who is Amrulla Saleh and his political journey so far.
With ‘Panjshir Ke Sher’, Saleh learned the skills of war
Amarullah Saleh was the chief of the country’s intelligence agency NDS before taking over as the Vice President of Afghanistan. Coming from the Tajik ethnic group, Amarulla had a sister. To trace Amarulla Saleh, his sister was captured and brutally tortured by Taliban terrorists. During this, Amarulla’s sister died. When Soviet forces entered Afghanistan in the 1990s, Saleh received arms training in Pakistan and fought under the leadership of Commander Ahmed Shah Masood, known as the Sher of Panjshir. After this, when the Taliban started spreading in Afghanistan, then under the leadership of Saleh Masood, he jumped into the war against the Taliban. After this, Saleh developed friendship with India. He got Ahmed Shah Masood to meet Indian officials and got help.
Saleh had exposed Pak-Taliban’s nefarious friendship
He was in charge of intelligence agencies and helped America during the US military campaign against the Taliban that began after the attack on America in 2001. In 2006, Saleh, during his tenure as the chief of the NDS, conducted a ground survey on the Taliban, who were constantly under attack. They found that these terrorists are active in Pakistan and attack from there. He gave his study the form of a report. It was named ‘Taliban Strategy’. In it, Saleh’s team wrote that the Pakistani intelligence agency ISI decided to support the Taliban in 2005 and provided cash and money. Meanwhile, the Hamid Karzai government of Afghanistan started considering India as its friend, which provoked Pakistan. After this, Pakistan started rearing the Taliban. Saleh’s report said the Taliban would attack when US-NATO forces were reduced.
Good relations of Saleh with India’s intelligence agency RAW, CIA
Saleh’s report proved to be true, today the Taliban with the help of ISI has captured the whole of Afghanistan after 20 years. Karzai is said to have been furious at Saleh’s report and rejected Saleh’s findings. However, Saleh later became the country’s vice-president. Saleh has also been trained by the US intelligence agency CIA. Saleh has created such a network of his spies that helps him to keep an eye on the activities of Taliban and ISI from Afghanistan to Pakistan. It is said that Saleh has good relations with the Indian intelligence agency RAW. Because of this friendship of Saleh, Pakistanis hate him. He is the biggest enemy of the Taliban because of his tough action against the jihadists. The Taliban wanted to capture Saleh but he secretly went to the Panjshir Valley, an impregnable fortress of the rebels.
Saleh has clashed with General Musharraf and General Kayani
Being the biggest enemy of Taliban, Saleh was always a target of ISI and terrorists. There have been several horrific fatal attacks on Saleh including September 2020. The NDS, led by Saleh, discovered in 2004 that Osama bin Laden lived in a residential area in Pakistan. Saleh had exposed him in Bagram in 2006 in front of Pakistani dictator General Pervez Musharraf and the then ISI chief General Ashfaq Pervez Kayani. In this meeting, Kayani got so angry that he said that I do not want to learn the work of an intelligence agency from a boy of my son’s age. Even after this, Saleh continued to make his point. Once in the meeting of Musharraf and Karzai, Saleh once again raised the issue of Osama. Musharraf was furious at this and he said, ‘Karzai, why have you brought this criminal man to teach me the secret.’ Even after Musharraf’s statement, Karzai kept his trust in Saleh. Saleh has always believed that military action against the Taliban is necessary.
Saleh declares himself the President of Afghanistan
Amrullah Saleh has declared himself the President of Afghanistan after Ashraf Ghani fled the country. He also targeted US President Joe Biden, saying that arguing with him is useless now. Saleh also appealed to Afghan citizens like the Northern Alliance to stand up against the Taliban. Amrullah Saleh tweeted that according to the Constitution of Afghanistan, the Vice President becomes Acting President in the absence, escape, resignation or death of the President. I am currently inside my country and have a legitimate caring president. I am reaching out to all the leaders for their support and consensus. In another tweet, he targeted the US, saying that now it is useless to argue with Joe Biden on Afghanistan.
