Kabul: If the reports coming in from different sources are to be believed, the Taliban government in Afghanistan is already facing a major leadership crisis. According to the reports, the group’s supreme leader, Haibatullah Akhundzada, has been killed. Also, Mullah Baradar is said to have been taken hostage by the hardliner Haqqani group.

When the interim Afghan government was announced, Mullah Mohammad Hasan Akhund was named as the acting prime minister, while Mullah Baradar, who was touted to be named the chief, and Mullah Abdus Salam were named as his deputies.

At that time, Akhundzada had said that the Taliban were committed to all international laws, treaties and commitments not in conflict with Islamic law.

However, Akhundzada has not been seen in a while. His absence from the scene has triggered the speculations.

As per reports, Baradar had been attacked physically by Haqqani group leader Khalil Haqqani earlier in September.

The Haqqani group reportedly enjoys the support of the Pakistanig Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).
