Josep Borrell, the EU Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy on Thursday in New York said that senior Taliban leadership does not agree with their Supreme Leader, Hibatullah Akhundzada’s latest decisions restricting women and girls from education and work.  

In order to pressurize the Taliban regime, the existing difference among the Taliban leadership should be utilized, the civil society should be contacted, and the people of Afghanistan should be supported, Borrell said.  

The high-ranking European official believes that Hibatullah Akhundzada’s latest decrees restricting the rights of women and girls from work and education have caused differences among the Taliban leadership.

“Taliban senior leadership do not agree with the Supreme leader’s ideas on key matters, because they know that the implementation of such decrees would further isolate the country and cause new problems for the ruling regime. We have to utilize the intergroup differences,” Borrell said.

In the recent past, Bloomberg news channel had reported that the Taliban’s verdicts against women have intensified the differences among the Taliban leadership, and each group is trying to mobilize its supporters. The source said that Mullah Yaqoob, Defense Minister, and Sirajuddin Haqqani, the Interior Minister oppose the decisions of the group’s leader.

Whereas, some Taliban leadership, including Abbas Stanikzai, the Deputy Foreign Minister has rejected the inter-group issues among the Taliban senior leaders, and has said that they willingly accept the Supreme leader’s orders.

Borrell criticized the Taliban leadership in a biting tone in front of reports. “The Taliban Supreme leader believes that girls do not deserve to live as human beings in the world. Girls love to attend school and learn,” he said.

He further added, “we cannot cut off the cash aid to Afghanistan, aimed at meeting the basic requirements, because we do not want to punish the ordinary people of Afghanistan. However, the point is how to punish Afghanistan’s ruling regime, which would not affect the Afghan populace. Maintaining a balance between the two is difficult.”
