One of the most senior figures in Afghanistan’s Taliban government has hailed the sacrifices of suicide bombers at a meeting with families of the “martyrs” in Kabul.
Interior minister Sirajuddin Haqqani, listed as a terrorist by the United States with a $10 million bounty for his arrest, met the relatives yesterday at an upscale hotel in the capital.
Pro-Taliban social media accounts and local media today published images of the minister praying and embracing men in a glitzy ballroom.
"The advent of the Islamic system is the result of the blood of our martyrs"
