In Afghanistan, the Taliban has appointed global terrorist Mullah Hassan Akhund as the Prime Minister of the Islamic Emirate. Not only this, America’s most wanted terrorist has been made the Interior Minister of Afghanistan in the Taliban government. The appointment of global terrorists to the number one and two positions in the Taliban government has created panic in the world. In such a situation, the question is arising that how can any country recognize the Taliban government while holding the key positions of these two banned terrorists.
PM Mullah Hassan Akhund UN banned terrorist
Mullah Hassan Akhund, who became the head of the Taliban government in Afghanistan, is included in the list of global terrorists of the United Nations. Mullah Mohammad Hassan currently heads the Taliban’s powerful decision-making body, the Rahbari Shura or Leadership Council. Mohammad Hassan belongs to Kandahar, the birthplace of the Taliban and is one of the founders of the terrorist movement. Mulla Hassan Akhund has served as the head of the Rahbari Shura for 20 years and earned a very good reputation. He is a religious leader rather than a military background.
Sirajuddin Haqqani America’s Most Wanted
Sirajuddin Haqqani, who became the Home Minister or Interior Minister of Afghanistan, is included in the hit list of the American investigative agency FBI. The US government has also kept a reward of 5 million dollars (about Rs 36 crores) on this terrorist. After the death of his father Jalaluddin Haqqani, Sirajuddin Haqqani is heading the Haqqani network. The Haqqani group oversees the financial and military assets of the Taliban along the Pakistan-Afghanistan border. Some experts believe that Haqqani was the one who started the suicide attacks in Afghanistan. The Haqqani network is believed to be responsible for several high-profile attacks in Afghanistan. He also attempted to assassinate the then Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
Such restrictions apply to global terrorists
confiscation of property
As soon as it is included in this list, according to the rules of the United Nations, all countries confiscate the money, financial assets and economic resources of the concerned person, group or institution without delay. Any country in which there is any property or bank account in the name of these terrorists will be confiscated immediately.
All countries are banned from the movement of people included in the banned list to any country in the world. Also he cannot travel freely in the country he is in. No country can issue visas or give asylum to such terrorists in their own country.
Prohibition on the sale and purchase of weapons
As soon as it is included in the United Nations banned list, there is a ban on the sale of arms, its parts, materials, technical information by any country or organization to the person or organization concerned. The banned person or institution may not use an airplane or ship bearing the flag of any country.
How will the Taliban government get recognition?
This is the first time in the world that two or more global terrorists are sitting in the highest position in a government. In such a situation, the big question is arising that how will the countries which have imposed sanctions on these terrorists finally recognize the Taliban government. If these countries recognize by keeping the rules and regulations, then it will be considered as a compromise with terrorism. On the other hand, such an example will be set that despite being a terrorist, all crimes are forgiven if he becomes the head of the government.
How will the ‘Tamaga’ of Global and Most Wanted be removed?
Removing the ‘tag’ of global terrorist and most wanted from Mullah Hassan Akhund and Sirajuddin Haqqani is not an easy thing. If a terrorist is included in the list of global terrorists of the United Nations, then he is automatically banned in most countries of the world. India also recognizes the United Nations Designated Terrorist List. In such a situation, it may prove to be a difficult task for these countries to recognize the Taliban government.
What option does the Taliban have?
The world needs the Taliban at this time, not the Taliban. The Taliban are desperate for money to run their government. If money does not come to him, then there may be destruction in Afghanistan. On the other hand, if the world does not recognize, then diplomatic relations will not be established. In such a situation, the Taliban will have to prove that it has broken ties with terrorism and is giving equal status to all groups including women, religious minorities. Otherwise, it will have to remove these global terrorists and include good and clean names.
