Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar is among the Taliban leaders who were released on October 24, 2018, after spending almost eight years in Pakistani prisons.




Only Mullah Abdul Ghani Brother can tell us how the authorities were treated during his confinement with Mullah Abdul Ghani Brother.

According to certified reports, Mullah Abdul Ghani Bardar suffered from diabetes and other illnesses during his imprisonment. This is the reason that after being released on October 24, 2018, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar had to be treated at a private hospital in Karachi.

Observers are expressing their views as to how far Islamabad and Washington can benefit from a visit by a delegation of 12-member Taliban leaders.

Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, 51, from Afghanistan's southern Uruzgan province, was born in 1968 when war broke out with the former Soviet Union's entry into Afghanistan during her time as a student.

Mullah Abdul Ghani Brother and his family were also among those who left home and country because of the war and took refuge in Pakistan. At that time, most of the southern provinces of Afghanistan were living in Quetta, the capital of Balochistan and other parts of the province. Mullah Abdul Ghani Brother and his other close relatives also lived in Kutchlak near Quetta.

Join the Afghan War


Jihadist groups were formed under different names to fight the Soviet Union. Of the fighting groups in Afghanistan, seven groups formed a coalition in Peshawar, including Mawlawi Mohammad Nabi Mohammadi's group 'Haram-ul-Islam'. Mullah Abdul Ghani Brother, along with his close friend and colleague Mullah Mohammad Omar Akhund, was in the group.



Another group called the Taliban emerged in the same group, which included Mullah Mohammad Omar Akhund and Mullah Abdul Ghani Brother, as well as Mullah Obaidullah, a close relative of former President Hamid Karzai. Mullah Obaidullah died in Pakistan a few years ago.

After the withdrawal of the Soviet Union from Afghanistan and the abolition of Dr Najibullah's government, a small group called Taliban, Maulvi Mohammad Younus became part of Hizb-e-Islami. Later in October 1994, the group separated and named it Tehreek-e-Taliban Afghanistan (TTP).

Education and Training


Like Mullah Mohammad Omar, Mullah Abdul Ghani Brother did not complete his education from any seminary or educational institution. That's why they were proud to call themselves students.




Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar is considered among the Taliban's wise and intelligent leaders. They also mastered different languages, while apart from Pashto and Dari, they can communicate in Arabic, Urdu and English.

Taliban Movement


In April 1992, when some self-made commanders and generals from Afghanistan thwarted the UN peace plan, a war broke out between different groups for the throne Kabul.

Ahmad Shah Massoud's Shura Nazar, Engineer Gulbuddin Hikmatyar's Hizb-i-Islami, Prof. Abdul Rab Rasul Sayyaf's unity began a war between the unity of Islamic Afghanistan and the unity of Abdul Ali Mazari.

According to observers, Kabul was so devastated within a few days that it did not even occur during the 13-year war of the Soviet Union. The confrontation between various jihadist groups and commanders of war continued for many years.

This confrontation disappointed the majority of the Afghan nation. Many people were disappointed to migrate to other countries.

In October 1994, the 'Tehreek-e-Taliban Afghanistan' was born under the leadership of Mullah Mohammad Omar Akhund and Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar emerged as the deputy head of the movement. He was not only Mullah Omar's deputy but also counted among his close and trusted colleagues.

The Tehreek-e-Taliban Afghanistan was formed in a madrassa in the Maiwand area of ​​Kandahar. The madrassa was jointly founded by Mullah Omar and Mullah Ghani Brother.

When the Tehreek-e-Taliban Afghanistan was formed, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar was appointed as its deputy's head. Later when the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan rapidly occupied the southern and western provinces of Afghanistan, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar was first assigned to Nimroz and later to Iran. The adjoining province was made governor of Herat.

Mullah Abdul Ghani, reportedly on the collapse of the Taliban government in November 2001, was instrumental in saving Mullah Omar's life not only by riding a motorcycle.
