Q. Name the head of the Afghan Taliban’s political office who resigned in Qatar on 5th Aug’15?- Published on 27 Aug 15
a. Mullah Mohammad Omar
b. Agha Akhtar
c. Syed Mohammad Tayyeb Agha
d. None of these
ANSWER: Syed Mohammad Tayyeb Agha
In a statement released to the media, Tayyab Agha said there were historic mistakes made in keeping Mullah Omar’s death secret for nearly two years and in picking his successors outside of Afghanistan. Agha’s claim gives credence to the widespread perception that the Taliban’s new leader, Mullah Akhtar Mansoor, was selected with the backing of Pakistan. He said the new Taliban leader should have been elected from the Taliban fighters and in the bunkers.
