Our Muslim Brothers!
As you know that the founder and leader of the Islamic Emirate of
Afghanistan, His Excellency Amir-ul-Momineen Mullah Mohammad Umar Mujahid
(may his soul rest in peace) has passed away from this world due to the
illness he was suffering from.
After his passing away, the Leading Council of the Islamic Emirate, authentic
scholars and venerable people of the country embarked on selecting the new
leadership. Members of the Leading Council of the Islamic Emirate, saints and
scholars, all of them discerning and influential people, in the wake of a
prolonged discussion, decided in a meeting to appoint the intimate and
trusted associate of late Mullah Mohammad Umar Mujahid (may his soul rest in
peace) and the former deputy head of the Islamic Emirate, Mullah Akhtar
Mohammad Mansoor, as the new leader of the Islamic Emirate.
Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Mansoor, who was considered a reliable and suitable
person for shouldering huge tasks even in the lifetime of late Mullah
Mohammad Umar Mujahid (may his soul rest in peace) and had been practically
administrating the Islamic Emirate since long; therefore, the leading council
of the Islamic Emirate and authentic scholars judged him a suitable and
talented personality for the new leadership of the Islamic Emirate of
Afghanistan and appointed him as their legalized leader.
In this meeting of leadership appointment, scholars, saints and dignitaries
of the Islamic Emirate took an oath of allegiance to Mullah Akhtar Mohammad
Mansoor as Amir-ul-Momineen in accordance with the principal of listening and
obedience. He, as a legal Amir, pledged his commitment to the Sharia Law too.
Similarly, after due consultation and approval in this meeting, each one, the
former judiciary chief of the Islamic Emirate, religious scholar, Moulavi
Haibatullah Akhunzada, and the son of the renowned Jihadi and scholarly
figure Moulavi Jalauddin Haqqani (may Allah safeguard him), a well-known
Jihadi commander, Mullah Sirajuddin Haqqani, were appointed as the deputy
heads of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.
The Leading Council of the Islamic Emirate pray to Almighty Allah to bestow
this newly appointed leadership with steadfastness, honesty and allegiance to
the Divine Sharia; and invites the Muslim Nation, particularly, all Mujahidin
of the Islamic Emirate, to obey him as their legal Amir (leader).
