Abbas Stanikzai replaces Tayyab Agha as Qatar office head

KABUL: Mullah Sher Mohammad Agha Abbas Stanikzai has replaced Tayyab Agha as Taliban’s Qatar office head, a media report said on Wednesday.

Tayyab Agha resigned the position in protest over Mullah Omar’s death being kept under wraps, calling it a historic blunder. He also vehemently criticised Mullah Mansoor’s appointment as new Taliban leader.

Pakistani newspaper The Express Tribune reported Stanikzai — a supporter of Mullah Mansoor — had been appointed as new head of Taliban’s political office in Doha.

In a statement, Stanikzai said: “I and other members of the political office … declare allegiance to honourable Mullah Akhtar Mansoor. We consider this decision in accordance with Islamic Sharia and will follow his instructions.”

The Taliban website carried Stanikzai’s condolence and grief in a message over the death of Mullah Omar. Earlier, media reported serious differences among Taliban leaders over the appointment of the new leader.   (PAN)
