New statement from Zabīhullah Mujāhid of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan: “Remarks Regarding the Baseless Claims about the Martyrdom of Amīr al-Muʼminīn [Mullā Muḥmmad ‘Umar]”

Claims and rumors were spread this morning by the Kabul stooge regime’s intelligence directorate, other officials and some media outlets that the esteemed Amir ul Mumineen was Martyred in Pakistan. We strongly reject these false claims of the enemy and we confidently encourage our fellow countrymen, Mujahideen and

the rest of the Muslims not to believe these intelligence lies and false reports. All praise is due to Allah, the esteemed Amir ul Mumineen is alive and well and is leading the Mujahideen in all aspects while living safely with reliance on Allah and with the strong backing and support of his believing nation. The enemy, with these kinds of rumors is trying to halt the devastating waves of ‘Badar’ operation and is trying to create confusion amongst Mujahideen, countrymen and faithful Muslims. With these kinds of false claims, the enemy is trying to turn away the focus of Mujahideen from their Jihadic activities while at the same time trying to boost the morale of invading and its puppet internal forces but such futile attempts will never make them reach their miserly goals. They should realize that the struggle against them is from a proud nation with strong determination who will not be turned away from their goals with mere lies and false propaganda. Our nation is an intelligent nation, who is aware of the tricks and lies of the devious and cunning enemy. No one will be able to stand against or create obstacles in the way of this nation’s aspirations and goals. God willing.
