Taliban spokesman and commander Maulana Yusuf Ahmadi said in an interview to a news channel that the group had no role in the killing of Indian journalist Danish Siddiqui. The Taliban has consistently denied its role in the Danish Siddiqui assassination case. Indian journalist was killed in a Taliban attack in Spin Boldak, Afghanistan. He was reporting in Taliban-held areas. After his assassination, the Taliban faced criticism at the global level. For this reason, the group is now trying to get away from this matter.
According to the report, a Taliban spokesman said that the group has captured 85 percent of the Taliban. Soon we will also capture 15 percent of the share. The spokesman rejected the claims of Pakistani military and ISI support, saying that the Taliban is fighting this battle on its own and will continue this fight on its own in the future.

The spokesman said that children and women need not fear the Taliban. They will be given all their rights. On the question of Danish Siddiqui, the Taliban spokesman said that we are in touch with Afghan journalists. If any journalist wants to come here, then contact us first. We did not kill them, they were with the enemy army.
The Taliban claimed that the enemy army was defaming them. She is damaging infrastructure while the group is only targeting camps and posts so that they cannot be used again. Ahmadi claimed that the Taliban was not targeting hospitals and schools.
Taliban does not want ‘peace’
Afghan President Ashraf Ghani said in a speech on Eid on Tuesday that the recent move by the Taliban shows that the group has “no intention” for peace and that the government will follow suit. Will decide on the basis Ghani said the decision to send a high-ranking delegation from the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to Doha for talks was a “final warning”. The Afghan President said that national support and national defense are needed at this time and added that the future of Afghanistan will be built in Afghanistan and by the Afghans.
