The Taliban spokesperson, Zabiullah Mujahid has addressed a press conference at the Taliban captured Afghanistan. It was surprising for many media personalities as he was physically present at the event which had never happened before this. Many used to believe that he was not real. Revealing about the same, Mujahid said that he used this as a tool to hide right under the nose of the US-Afghan Forces for many years.
The Taliban leader has proudly announced this fact to the media, stating that his caliber to hide might have given an advantage to the Taliban against the Afghanistan Army. In his interview, Mujahid revealed that he had escaped the US-Afghan national forces multiple times, making them think that he might be just a misted idea, a made-up character, and not a real person.
The 43-year-old Taliban leader said that he never left Afghanistan. Though he had traveled to many different places but never left the country permanently, even though he was constantly under the radar. The US forces apparently paid a lot of money to the locals to find out about his whereabouts but he always managed to escape, Mujahid said.
Mujahid joined the Taliban at the age of 16. He mentioned that Zabiullah is his real name, and ‘Mujahid’ is the name he is given by his seniors in Tehreek. After the Taliban came into power, they tried to project a moderate image of themselves under which a press meet was conducted. This meeting was addressed by Zabiullah.
The group has stated that, unlike the previous time, the Taliban leaders will not remain under shadows. Several leaders did come in front of the press, answered questions and thus, the interim cabinet was formed. Resultantly, the Taliban are looking for International recognition.
