Mujib was considered to be the most inhumane among the leaders of the Taliban. He had issued a fatwa two months back that beheading was the only punishment for those who opposed the Taliban rule or for not obeying their orders. Taliban’s spokesperson had, however, refuted it by stating that it was Mujib’s personal opinion.

Editorial viewpoint

Muslims are involved in jihadi activities against the majority population wherever they are in minority and where they are in majority, they destroy the minority population, but they kill each other where they are the only population !
