The Afghan Taliban have revealed where Mullah Omar, who died in 2013, was buried and the place where he was buried was kept secret for years to “not be captured by the enemies”.
The Taliban unveiled yesterday in Afghanistan the grave of the founder of their movement, Mullah Omar, who died in 2013 and the place where he was buried remained secret for years, so as not to be “captured by the enemies”.
The tomb of Mullah Omar is located in the town of Omarzo in Zabul province (east) and the Taliban spokesman announced that the public will be able to visit it.
Photos released by the regime show Taliban leaders standing, gathered around a simple white tomb protected by a pale green iron cage.
Mullah Omar, who has died aged around 55, founded the Taliban in 1993. The armed movement first seized power in Afghanistan in 1996 and retook it in August 2021 – after US forces left – imposing sharia on the country.
“As many enemies were present and the country was under occupation, to avoid the tomb being captured, its location was kept secret. Now, there is no problem if people want to visit the grave,” explained spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid.
