While the Taliban had repeatedly claimed that the new government in Afghanistan would be much different? than how it was 20 years ago (from 1996 to 2001), senior Taliban commander Waheedullah Hashimi, on Thursday, announced that there would be no democracy; rather the country would strictly follow Sharia laws.

Waheedullah Hashimi told Reuters, “We will not discuss what type of political system should we apply in Afghanistan because it is clear. It is Sharia law and that is it.


Hashimi also said it would also reach out to former pilots and soldiers from the Afghan armed forces to join its (Taliban) ranks.

Adding further, he said a council would govern the country that would oversee the day-to-day activity while the supreme leader of the Taliban Haibatullah Akhundzada would likely remain the overall in-charge.
