About The Baseless Rumor Of Illness Of The Taliban Chief Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid
24 January 2011
In the Name of Allah, the Most
Beneficent, the Most Merciful.
Quoting the American State Department and a CIA-run
private intelligence network, The Eclipse Group, an
American daily, The Washington Post has published an
unsubstantiated and baseless report, claiming that the
esteemed Amir-ul-Momineen, Mullah Omar Mujahid had a
heart attack and was treated in a hospital in Karachi.
The afore-said intelligence network says, the source
of its information is a physician who saw
Amir-ul-Momineen after the operation. But the report
does not mention the name of the physician. According
to the network, the physician says that he was not
present in the operation theatre but heard from other
physicians that Mullah Omar was suffering from cardiac
complications. Some Afghan and international media
outlets circulated the rumors without first verifying
and substantiating it.
The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan categorically
refutes this baseless and fatuous claim and believes
that circulation of this rumor, is part and parcel of
the propaganda war launched by the enemy.
The esteemed Amir-ul-Momineen (may Allah protect him)
has never suffered from such disease, that would have
required to rush him to a hospital. The enemy is
circulating these rumors to cover up its own defeat at
the military field and to distract the attention of
the common man.
It is worth mentioning that the enemy has no proof in
this regard nor has any reason to prove its case. The
only proof that it relies on in the report, weakens
the claim in itself. The physician mentioned in the
report says that he has not seen such an incident
personally but has heard (the story) from other
doctors. It is in itself a fabricated reason.
In view of the propaganda drive by the enemy, the
Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan declares that this
fatuous and baseless claim of the enemy will not have
any negative impact on the resistance and operations
of the Mujahideen against the invading forces.
All the people of Afghanistan know that the enemy has
launched the propaganda campaign in order to cover up
its defeat. It gives circulation to baseless rumors
which often end up proving a failure and fatuous. In
fact these baseless rumors only add to undermining the
credibility of the enemy. Apart from that, no gain the
enemy will have.
