Who is Mulla Abdul Ghani Baradar?
Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, born in 1968, is the second Taliban leader. He is one of the founders of the Taliban. Mullah Baradar played a key role in the Taliban rule in Afghanistan from 1996 to 2001. However, after 2001, when the US invaded Afghanistan, Mullah Baradar was leaving for Pakistan. He was jailed by Pakistan in 2010 for allegedly trying to negotiate with the Afghan government without keeping Pakistan in the loop.
Mullah Baradar was released in 2018 after the US stepped up its efforts to negotiate with the Taliban. He then took over the reins of Doha, Qatar and played a key role in negotiations with the United States. Now Mullah Baradar can lead the Taliban in Afghanistan.
