The Haqqani Network, endorsed by Pakistan have negligible interest in forming a government in Afghanistan, however, the group is keenly looking forward to a conservative Sunni Pashtun coming into power. The stance is going in contradiction from the statement made by Mullah Baradar who wanted to transfigure it into a transitional inclusive government for Doha’s community. This is leading to a scuffle over forming power in Kabul under the Haqqani group’s guidance and leadership against Mullah Baradar and his commitments made during the Doha peace talks.
Having absolute backing from its promoter country, Pakistan, the Haqqanis supports the idea of a Taliban government as per the theory of medieval theocracy. “The HQN has told Baradar to back off as they won Kabul and have dominant control of the Afghan capital. Mullah Yaqoob is still in Kandahar and there is utter confusion over government formation with ultra-conservative traditional Taliban elements who do not want to give up filial ties with Al Qaeda coming to the fore,” said a Kabul observer according to Hindustan Times.
Lt Gen Faiz Hameed, the chief promoter of Taliban and Director General of Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), is in Kabul to settle the conflicting strategies that go in accordance with the Haqqani Network. Ambiguous reports shows that the appointment of Pakistani Army personnel in mufti to serve the anti-resistance proceedings in the Panjshir Valley have begun.
In association with China and Russia, the Taliban network is forging the Panjshir resistance and fighting without international aid. As most neighbouring Central Asian Republics are approaching for peace and tranquillity with the Sunni Islamist network as stated and stamped by Moscow.
