Taliban frees TTP’s Maulvi Faqir Mohammad, other terrorists from Afghan prisons
It has been discovered that just days after coming into power, the Taliban have released at least 2,300 terrorists from different prisons in Afghanistan. These include several top commanders of Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), al-Qaeda and Islamic State.
Among the released is Maulvi Faqir Mohammad, the former deputy chief of TTP which is an anti-Pakistan terrorist organisation. His release could pose a threat to both Afghanistan and Pakistan.
In the past week, the Taliban has released prisoners from Kandahar, Bagram and even Kabul prisons.
Recall that the Taliban seized control of Afghanistan after former president Ashraf Ghani and his top ministers stepped down from their posts and fled the country on Sunday.
After shutting down its embassy in Kabul, the US is worried that with the return of the Taliban, terrorist groups could reconstitute in Afghanistan much sooner than expected.
Following the Taliban’s takeover of Kabul on Sunday, US Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Mark Milley told Senators that a previous assessment of how soon terrorist groups would likely reconstitute in Afghanistan may speed up.
